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).

Mahooosive 'Threads I'm On' here. iPhone4 thingy. Using Safari. (Morning, Tech BTW. Hope you got some sleep!)

Okay, TIO & TIW are now huge font.

Buttons are still wrong, but text box input is back to normal operation.

Sorry sad thanks wine

It's like reading a Janet and John book.

TIO is ridiculous. Tech please just do a system restore to before you started to play around. I'm sure over half of the users use the mobile site and this is getting unworkable now.

YY TIO and TIW are massive. Like I have an accessibility function turned on. And the preview and post message buttons under this entry box are misaligned.

I'm using safari, iPhone 4.

I actually quite liked the larger text when posting a message on a thread - I thought that was an intentional change!

Are you trying to get us to move over to the app? hmm

I'm on galaxy s4 using chrome, my writing is huge still. I thought ut was my end this phone was cursed to hell yesterday!

OnTheNingNangNong Sat 25-May-13 08:09:55

It's the same for me regarding the buttons, TIO and posting messages, writing a line takes up a large portion of my screen and it is very annoying.

Please make it go back to normal, please.

TIO is massive here, iphone 5 on mobile site

Ubermumsy Sat 25-May-13 08:28:22

Happening to me too (HTC Android running Gingerbread). Am glad it's q site issue though, I thought DS age 3 had mucked about with my settings in some unfathomable way!

iphone 4s on safari,
and preview and post message buttons are still wonky and huge.

And on the talk section, clicking onto threads I'm on , i'm watching, customise and unanswered results in the following pages being in huge font.

"are you trying to get us to move over to the app" haha.
I was just thinking this was revenge for me dissing the app and saying the mobile site was much better the other day!!

hollyisalovelyname Sat 25-May-13 08:37:29

Please sort out the pound sign on the mobile site. This has been awful for months. When posters put in the pound sign it doesn't work instead you get gobbledy gook with the word acute somewhere in it. Very strange

cocolepew Sat 25-May-13 08:54:55

Text huge here still, TIO is bizarre grin

FarelyKnuts Sat 25-May-13 09:52:55

Text box still massive and TIO has now turned massive too.
Samsung Galaxy S

ON IPHONE 5 AND EVERYTHING IS MASSIVE AND SHOUTING AT ME.

Please make it stop.

sjuperyoni Sat 25-May-13 10:38:39

TIO and TIW have been huge all morning aaaargh sad my eyes are too delicate for this wink

no really, my phone has every font as low as possible because i can't focus on big writing

SuffolkNWhat Sat 25-May-13 10:45:54

Has Tech's grandmother come into work today and gone all Large Print on us? Are there Werthers involved?

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

oh no, that's worse sad

Text input is still far too big, although it is smaller than yesterday but not by much.

Post, preview and convert links are all still huge.

Everything on tio is massive, impossible to use massive.

DontMeanToBeRudeBut Sat 25-May-13 11:01:23

iPhone 4S here. TIO font is massive - please put it back to the way it was!

tethersend Sat 25-May-13 11:04:08

TUESDAY?

Jinsei Sat 25-May-13 11:12:37

Ooh, I thought it just wasn't loading properly on my phone! Glad to know it's being fixed!

And I am not switching over to the app...mobile site is definitely better!
