All of a sudden. I'm on an iPad, using safari. It's a bit annoying. Is it an ad? I can't spot an obvious culprit.

Onetwothreeoops Thu 24-Jan-13 21:16:34

Me too! Glad it's not just me.

Me three.

On the plus side, I can now highlight posters posts and mine! Put more active conversations, keep my threads I'm on for longer etc etc.

muddledsheep Thu 24-Jan-13 22:04:22

And me, ipad & safari sad

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 24-Jan-13 22:04:24

So all Safari?

<blames Safari programmers>

Are you using the mobile site or the ordinary web site?

Sorry for annoying questions, there's a method in my annoyingness

sppp Thu 24-Jan-13 22:04:51

It's making my eyes hurt. Please fix it soon. I may need to go to bed otherwise.

ImagineJL Thu 24-Jan-13 22:04:55

Me too. I've got my normal screen with ads down right hand side only it's much smaller than usual, then a big White vertical margin taking up about a 5th of the screen. It's very annoying, I hope it's not permanent.

Roseformeplease Thu 24-Jan-13 22:05:10

Using ordinary site on iPad.

sppp Thu 24-Jan-13 22:05:38

Ordinary site here. Not the mobile site.

GreatUncleEddie Thu 24-Jan-13 22:05:42

Yup. iPad 1. Safari. Ios4. Teeny tiny.

NewFerry Thu 24-Jan-13 22:05:44

And me, also on iPad

BadRoly Thu 24-Jan-13 22:06:11

Also happened to me in iPad using safari on main site rather than app.

Am now on app on iPhone and all is hunky dory smile

ImagineJL Thu 24-Jan-13 22:06:14

I have no idea what site I'm using, it's stored as a favourite on my iPad. Please make it normal again!

GreatUncleEddie Thu 24-Jan-13 22:06:15

Sorry. Normal site not mobile.

AnnoyingOrange Thu 24-Jan-13 22:06:22

Me too. Ordinary site on iPad via safari

Normal site in iPad safari. It added a 4cm gap down the right hand side.

GreatUncleEddie Thu 24-Jan-13 22:06:47

Normal shite grin

Alonglongway Thu 24-Jan-13 22:06:48

Yep me too. Ordinary website

JacqueslePeacock Thu 24-Jan-13 22:06:52

Yep, me too. Thought it was something I'd done by mistake.

Me too, on iPad, using ordinary site.

Please fix it smile

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 24-Jan-13 22:08:15

Thanks all. Diagnostically you are marvellously unanimous.

As to what on earth to do about it - here's where I hand over to Tech...

We'll come back to you ASAP.

FriedSprout Thu 24-Jan-13 22:08:16

Ordinary site, iPad on Safari.

ChocsAndBedsocks Thu 24-Jan-13 22:08:19

Thank goodness it is not just me! Been going mad for the past ten minutes trying to work out what I'd done to bugger things up!

I'm on iPad 2 using the normal site through Safari too.

Normal site, on safari.
iOS 4
Just all of a sudden sometime between 20.30 and 21.30

ChasedByBees Thu 24-Jan-13 22:08:49

Phew, not just me. I'm using the ordinary site on my iPhone. I hate the mobile site.

Pagwatch Thu 24-Jan-13 22:08:54

Ordinary site.
I don't use mobile sites. I always think I'm going to get a lite version and be short changed. <paranoid>

HoneyDragon Thu 24-Jan-13 22:09:28

TIO is still shitola too Rowan, can you pop that back on the grievance list.

TalkativeJim Thu 24-Jan-13 22:11:19

iPhone here, safari, proper site not the mobile baby version (agrees with Pag)

RandallPinkFloyd Thu 24-Jan-13 22:13:20

Regular site on my shiny new iPad. Have mentioned I have a new ipad? It has retina display you know.

TuftyFinch Thu 24-Jan-13 22:15:12

It's because Apple isn't compatible with forum based websites. It will happen more and more.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 24-Jan-13 22:15:57


It's because Apple isn't compatible with forum based websites. It will happen more and more.

Ooh. What do you mean?

LegoAcupuncture Thu 24-Jan-13 22:16:48

Safari ipad here as well. First Facebook a few weeks ago, now MN. Anyone want to buy an ipad?

BoysWillGrow Thu 24-Jan-13 22:17:56

For those on the iPad 1, you should update to ios 5.1.1 , to keep it running smoothly aswel, mine kept kicking me off safari till then. smile

All though no more updates after the 5.1 for iPad 1 sad

Rhienne Thu 24-Jan-13 22:19:06

Still wonky... (Ipad, safari, normal site). Ios 6.

You can zoom in until tech gets his bashing hammer out diagnoses and fixes the problem.

BoysWillGrow Thu 24-Jan-13 22:20:47

Oooh it does it on the iPad mini too iOS 6.

iOS 6 here iPad 3

PirateShit Thu 24-Jan-13 22:21:58

I'm on an iPad, using safari, and it's all gone tits up for me too. Text all to the left had side of the screen.

Primrose123 Thu 24-Jan-13 22:30:32

I'm on an ipad on safari, on the normal site not the mobile one. There is an empty white margin on the right of the page and the writing is too small.

Tech (MNHQ) Thu 24-Jan-13 22:34:18

Is it better now?

Yay! It's fixed

PictureThis Thu 24-Jan-13 22:35:09
