Mumsnet pages too wide for my phone!

Have been reading the site very successfully on my Android phone but suddenly, the pages don't seem to fit? I'm having to scroll across the page to read which didn't seem to happen before.

What's happened?!

Mine too. It is very annoying.

I tried the app instead but it kept crashing.

Same here!

Are you looking at the desktop site instead of the mobile site? Scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click on the mobile site button.

Mine only started doing this last night, after a short period of text-only, which followed a Mumsnet is offline message.

Deffo mobile site.

Same here!

It's made me use the app, which I don't like because the OP is not highlighted and you can't bookmark - but it's that or scrolling.

Same here cakes.

I'm definitely on the mobile site.

Me too!

It just started yesterday, I'd been assuming it was my phone's fault.

Same here, started last night, thought something was wrong with my phone

Same thing here. It's very frustrating. Even in tie box as I type, I can't see all I've written. Was beginning to think my phone wasn't working.

MorrisZapp Sat 22-Dec-12 09:56:36

Me too. Also logging me out each time so having to log back in. Really irritating!

AnAirOfHopeInAManger Sat 22-Dec-12 09:57:25

Mine too. It started last night.

MNHQ please sort this out its christmas!

Same here, been posting on a thread in site stuff about it. I would link to it, but the fiddlyness of doing that on the phone is even worse when the screen size is all off confused

Oh, me too!

It goes from too wide to normal.

I also just before got something odd instead of active convos. I got three threads with bump, remove or "can't remember third option" gremlins.

Sounds like a techy glitch then rather than my phone! Started last night. Whilst page is loading it's fine; once loaded, the purple banners with 'first' 'next' 'previous' and 'last' on are stretched right across the page. Weird.

CremeEggThief Sat 22-Dec-12 10:02:19

Yep, same here. Definitely the mobile site and started last night.

Horsemad Sat 22-Dec-12 10:03:47

I'm def using the mobile site. Very frustrating.

stinkyfluffycat Sat 22-Dec-12 10:04:18

Me too - thought I'd managed to bugger it up myself but apparently not...

do you think it's a way of forcing us on to the appgrin

MsNobodyAgain Sat 22-Dec-12 10:15:50

Mine too. Very annoying.

RumpleteaserScroodge Sat 22-Dec-12 10:38:24
