iPhone 4S using safari browser and the mobile site.

The layout has all gone wonky - the buttons are huge and square and don't fit on the screen (under each other) and typing in the message box produces huge text.

T'is very disconcerting as I can only see about 4 words at a time.

(I've tried logging out and clearing my cache, history and cookies in case it's at my end).

As well as all that my preview and post message buttons have gone big too. On iPhone using mobile site.

Yes, that's true. Is that not better, though?

It all just looks clunky and poorly proportioned.

Once font size fixed that may resolve some other problems. Things are often related.

Would add that some buttons eg top and bump don't alter when touched so if page loads it's only indication that button responded yo touch.

As above, using mobile site on an Android phone. It looks like a badly formatted Word document grin

Bigger buttons are better (kindof) but they are too big.

I'm guessing you're trying to get them to size to half the text box; but in reality they just stack.

My text box does still expand with the text I type though.

Bigger buttons are good but mine are so big they take up most of the screen when my keyscreen is up!

A middle ground would be better.

My text box and buttons are so big that from "Nickname:" to the Post Message button fills the whole screen smile

Same here on an Xperia.

Buttons too big for me too on a HTC desire C (android).

Before the update, text entry was tiny so I could barely see what I'm reading. Now it's so big I can only see 6 lines while typing with 3-5 words on each line. Impossible to see if paragraphs look natural or not, and difficult to review the text and spot errors. I don't use the app because I like the highlighting effect etc.

The text of threads is perfect though - please don't change that. It's just in text entry boxes.

Tee2072 Fri 24-May-13 20:18:23

Yes, huge buttons. It's a bit odd!

iPhone 4s, Chrome browser.

Hi, We've just put up a fix that should hopefully address many of these problems. Please gives us a shout if you notice any continuing issues. Sorry for the hassle and thanks for your patience.

The font of all of TIO is now huge too. And the sort box is still huge. And the text box is still huge.

Tech (MNHQ) Sat 25-May-13 03:56:51

When you say the text box is huge, do you mean the add a message box? And what kind of phone are you on if you don't mind telling? Thanks mucho.

Hi - the whole 'threads I'm on' page is huge for me (iPhone 5). All other pages and buttons seem ok.

Yep the add a message box.

Using a galaxy ace.

Hi, Samsung galaxy 3 being used here, my add message box is enormous, has been since yesterday but now my tio is huge too (wasn't like that last night) some of my buttons are also huge but my next/previous bar at the bottom of a thread is tiny.

Tech (MNHQ) Sat 25-May-13 04:59:06

Hi, Thanks for that. We'll take another look.

Tee2072 Sat 25-May-13 06:26:34

And this morning my lists on I'm on has a huge font.

ExasperatedSigh Sat 25-May-13 06:34:19

Yes, same issues as before plus TIO is massive (HTC Android).
