Anyone having issues on iPad?

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 26-Feb-13 09:50:40

Not an ipad stealth boast honest (although did I mention I have a beautiful new ipad?)

I can't open any threads I've bookmarked, MN just crashes and flicks off.

Plus the whole site is really sticky.

Anyone else or is it just me?

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 26-Feb-13 09:54:05

Ok, I can open some but not any long-ish ones.

Yes, I am having problems with the scrolling. It is very choppy, not smooth. Other sites are fine. Oh, I am using MN on safari not the app.

Birnamwood Tue 26-Feb-13 10:13:09

I am too. It's really sticky and jumpy and...delayed. A bit like when you have a hangover smile I'm using safari aswell

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 26-Feb-13 10:16:07

I'm just on the normal site on safari too.

Phew, thought something terrible had happened for a minute!

I even tried turning it off and on again grin

FriedSprout Tue 26-Feb-13 10:16:53

Have been getting the odd, " throwing out issue" on iPad Safari and teeny tiny text this morning too

Birnamwood Tue 26-Feb-13 10:18:51

I did have a 'noooo my ipad, it's broken, my life is over' moment but thought I'd check site stuff first before I panicked too much.

And yes, mines been turned off and on again grin

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 26-Feb-13 10:24:23

It's a stupid time to get Tech on the case now though. Isn't it the middle of the night across the pond now?

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 10:44:21

Same thing happening to me too. Whenever I try to go to a thread I'm watching it goes all juddery and then throws me out and Safari shuts down.

All non-MN sites OK.

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 10:51:06

Right - it seems to be happening when trying to open any longish thread, not just bookmarked/watched ones.

PolkadotCircus Tue 26-Feb-13 11:00:36

Me too!!

Exactly that,opening long threads.

PolkadotCircus Tue 26-Feb-13 11:02:26

It was fine last night.

E-mailed my coder dp in Ipad panicblush.

I'm having problems on the mobile site in general. I'm using a generic browser on my android phone (about as helpful as I can get).

Keeps getting stuck loading page then goes to a generic 'page could not load check the web address, internet connection etc. Message' not even the nice 'mnhq have buggered off to the pub' message. If I try to go on the same page 2 seconds later it loads straight away.

A few pages I have loaded this morning have also loaded without their styllesheets doofnah and look horrid.

Argh, me too! Keeps crashing. V annoying.

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 11:27:29

Right. Everything getting juddery now so I will report my post to let MNHQ know.

And it isnt just long threads for me. Short ones too.

I'm going for a nap I expect would like it to be fixed when I wake smile

Smellslikecatspee Tue 26-Feb-13 11:48:57

This was happening to me last night either it was hanging for aggessssssssssss or kicking me out.

Am at work today so don't know yet if its any better. Was fine on my phone this am

PolkadotCircus Tue 26-Feb-13 12:00:21

Yes they better sort it soon as I can't get onto The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills thread,need my post show de brief fix!

Yes I am! Tho I downloaded a software update so wondered if that was messing about?!

Eskino Tue 26-Feb-13 12:02:23

Yes! Scrolling is sticky and typing is just awful. Glad it's not my ipad (its just out of warranty!)

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 26-Feb-13 12:02:30

I'm so pleased to see this!
I keep having problems scrolling on one particular spot on the left hand side. It's not like this on any other website, just MN.

Thank god it's not the ipad grin

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 26-Feb-13 12:05:09


Sorry about this - we're not aware of there being any issues but obviously something is up. Have you all downloaded software updates recently?

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 12:07:26

No software update here Rowan, and I am on v old iPad 1

PetiteRaleuse Tue 26-Feb-13 12:09:26

I'm having the same issues, and no software updates here either.

skratta Tue 26-Feb-13 12:10:44

I'm having a problem too, and haven't downloaded a software update.

Badvoc Tue 26-Feb-13 12:13:28

Yes, me too

FriedSprout Tue 26-Feb-13 12:19:09

No update and newish iPad

skratta Tue 26-Feb-13 12:20:13

So, should we download the software update then? Because two of my friends have IPads, although only one the same make as mine (Mini) if that matters, and after downloading, their IPads effectively stopped working.

PolkadotCircus Tue 26-Feb-13 12:23:40

My IPad is the 4 so shouldn't be a problem with updates.Did have an update thing but I ignored it although my 9 year old son kept saying I needed to do it,will check with dp to see if they did it.

Doesn't seem to be problems on any other sites.

No update here...well nothing that should matter (candy crush app)...Aand I was having problems both before and after I updated candy crush.

Also I am on the mobile site via an android phone not apple device.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 26-Feb-13 12:24:38

OK, thanks all - we will get Tech to have a look.

DarrenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 26-Feb-13 12:25:45

Hello. Just to clarify, is the issue with using Mumsnet on an iPad in Safari? Or is it a problem with using the Mumsnet iPad app? I'm going to stop playing angry birds and try to recreate the problem. Thanks.

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 12:26:23

So, it seems that old and new iPads/iPhones with and without software updates are affected. And only on MN, other sites Ok.

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 12:27:08

Hi Darren, iPad 1 using safari for me.

PolkadotCircus Tue 26-Feb-13 12:27:55

Mine is just using MN in Safari,don't have the app.

EnjoyResponsibly Tue 26-Feb-13 12:28:46

Via safari

It keeps crashing on my iPad too. I updated the OS earlier but that didn't solve the problem. (Using safari, not the app).

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 26-Feb-13 12:30:05

Safari here too.
Ipad 2 with no recent update.

MonaLotte Tue 26-Feb-13 12:30:26

Mine is the same on iPad with safari. Haven't done the latest update. I actually though my iPad was broken!

evilgiraffe Tue 26-Feb-13 12:35:41

Me too, using safari - I've not updated either. I got pissed off and am now on the laptop instead!

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 12:36:20

Off to get hair cut now, am hoping all will be restored to normal when I get back.

skratta Tue 26-Feb-13 12:41:49

I just updated btw. Now working perfectly. On Safari.

Mine's still crashing. sad

skratta Tue 26-Feb-13 12:48:38

Argh, I stand corrected. Worked fine for a few minutes. Now is same as pre-update. All other websites are fine and speedy but not MN! sad

Jux Tue 26-Feb-13 12:49:10

Safari user. Still crashing. Am posting this using the App, but Safari has better functionality ....

(There's still a problem with Topics in Advanced Search. Now tthe list ends at Local, Ceredigion, btw. Sorry, Darren blush !)

skratta Tue 26-Feb-13 12:52:26

Should say that now it is a bit different. Loading takes ages, but it doesn't crash and isn't sticky and easy once it has loaded.

PolkadotCircus Tue 26-Feb-13 13:04:52

Dp just e-mailed to say he did the update Sunday night so that's that theory then as it was fine yesterday and is still playing up now(just checked).

JengaBlock Tue 26-Feb-13 13:10:37

I am getting kicked out of safari too on the iPad.

MNHQ I cant see any content on the roundup emails on ipad 1 anymore.

iPad 3 on ios 6.1.2 (most recent update) on safari, crashes when loading large threads for me. This one opened ok though. But typing is a split second behind and scrolling jiggery.

QuickLookBusy Tue 26-Feb-13 13:22:10

Same here, I'm on an iPad but cannot give any more details cos I haven't a clue what Safari is

It happens when opening long threads. When I go back on MN it's also logged me out.

Safari user on iPhone. Sticky and jerky when scrolling or zooming in/out etc

FurryFox Tue 26-Feb-13 13:27:41

Another one having issues on the ipad here. Crashing out of long threads, slow and jerky etc. I think I'm on safari but don't really know if I'm honest confused. <very non tech>

QuickLookBusy Tue 26-Feb-13 13:30:51

Furry I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Could someone explain Safari to us please? in very plain English

Birnamwood Tue 26-Feb-13 13:52:28

You know on a normal computer the Internet is called 'Internet explorer'? Well on a mac/apple products its called safari. smile

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Tue 26-Feb-13 14:18:10

Im getting thrown out of Safari on my Iphone when I enter MN! It opens, but then just flicks back to the main menu! sad

BelaLug0si Tue 26-Feb-13 14:30:13

On ipad, have same problem and have tried Mercury and Opera browsers too with the same problem of freezing and crashing.

hazeyjane Tue 26-Feb-13 14:35:41

Also getting kicked off.

Safari, new ipad2, no updates recently?



I am on whatever the default internet browser on a Samsung galaxy sIII is. Im on the mobile site not the app. But it is broken.

Not sure if same problem but ive described my symptoms up there somewhere^^^^^....and its still doing it.

fairimum Tue 26-Feb-13 14:38:55

i get kicked out of safari when i come into mumsnet forum!

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 26-Feb-13 14:43:47

I'm on the iPad 4 ( not even slightly stealthy boast) I think there was an update recently but it's only gone funny this morning.

Its happening on Google chrome too for me...

hobnob57 Tue 26-Feb-13 15:08:01

Safari is booting me out of my favourite (long) thread and crashing. The first time this happened I lost all of my open tabs on safari after that. I updated the iOS update a couple of days ago but didn't have a problem yesterday.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 26-Feb-13 15:18:05

Hi again

Thanks for all these, and we are sorry for the annoyance - the Tech team will have a good look and we'll come back ASAP.

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 26-Feb-13 15:24:04

Hi, Thanks for letting us know. We'll check this out.

skratta Tue 26-Feb-13 15:25:13

I tried it on Puffin Free, I think it's different to Safari, right? Everything seems different on that, anyway. Same problems as with Safari.

cassell Tue 26-Feb-13 15:27:03

The mobile site isn't working for me properly either and I'm using safari on an iPhone 4s, haven't done last update. MN has been messing around since middle of last night and not working properly - difficult to access threads/threads freezing/difficulties posting etc. Hope you sort it soon.

janek Tue 26-Feb-13 15:28:04

I keep getting chucked out too. And typing this looks weird, ipad 3, safari, all recent updates completed, but it worked yesterday....

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 15:50:15

Have just tried using Chrome instead of Safari and it's still chucking me out and crashing sad

Birnamwood Tue 26-Feb-13 15:53:55

I don't know if its relevant or will help but when I load a page a white box/shadowing appears, like an advert is trying to load iykwim and a slight delay in loading. The page looks like its trying to do something first. Also the text isn't as sharp as it normally is.

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 15:59:36

This will be my last post until [hopeful] the problem is fixed, as any thread of 70+ posts seems to craa....

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 26-Feb-13 16:04:22

Hi, can you let us know if this is still happening? Thanks.

PolkadotCircus Tue 26-Feb-13 16:06:15

Ooo I just got onto a masseeeeeve thread I was trying to get on all day.

Will try another.

cassell Tue 26-Feb-13 16:08:29

Yes v v slow to do anything and then crashes and says the server stopped responding

Still happening.

PolkadotCircus Tue 26-Feb-13 16:10:11

Just got onto the RHWOBH thread too!

And the font is making the little clinking sound it normally does(didn't earlier) as you type.

Wonder what it was.

Dp will be glad he won't be subjected to Ipad woes on his return from work now.

Many thanks!

HMTheQueen Tue 26-Feb-13 16:12:13

Much better here. Yay!

Scrolling is back to normal! Thank you thanks

evilgiraffe Tue 26-Feb-13 16:21:06

So far so good...

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-13 16:21:58

Hurrah! It is fixed!

All hail Tech wine brew flowers

QuickLookBusy Tue 26-Feb-13 16:25:19

Thank you Birnam

MonaLotte Tue 26-Feb-13 16:28:34

Fine for me now ipad 2 ios 6.1 safari main site smile

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 26-Feb-13 16:29:03

Yay! Working fine now grin
thanks [gin]

I must say it is loads better. But I am still having intermittent page loading problems (android mobile)

Birnamwood Tue 26-Feb-13 17:39:38

All working as it should be thanks wine bear

skratta Tue 26-Feb-13 18:08:43

All working well!


RandallPinkFloyd Tue 26-Feb-13 19:08:10

Fixed, thank you Tech!

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 26-Feb-13 20:51:43

MN seems broken now sad
I can't see any emoticons, active convos is displaying the same threads over and over again with the same number of posts even though I've refreshed, same on chat and other places I've looked.

Is this the same ipad wankiness going on, or a different issue?

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 26-Feb-13 20:53:39

Posted ^^, it went straight to the top of active convos, on top of all the other stuck posts.

Unless the zombie apocalypse has happened and I am the only one left? hmm

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 26-Feb-13 20:56:57

It's working again. Ignore me.
<<puts down looting stick>>

Birnamwood Tue 26-Feb-13 22:23:28

Have some wine donkey smile

Hopasholic Thu 28-Feb-13 12:53:10

Hello! I'm a newbie just joined up! Can anybody tell me why I can't select smilies from my iPad or what I'm doing wrong? I can see the list but can't select.

Are on safari or the app?

evilgiraffe Thu 28-Feb-13 14:27:57

You can't select the smilies because they're just pictures. To include them in a comment you need to type the smiley as indicated on the list, like so: [ smile ] (remove the spaces)

The info alongside the smileys on emphasis and links gives you instructions on how to affect the appearance of your text and include links. It's all pretty simple smile

Hopasholic Thu 28-Feb-13 14:35:55


Hopasholic Thu 28-Feb-13 14:37:34

Thanks for that, pretty new to this forum malarkey as you can tell blush

evilgiraffe Thu 28-Feb-13 14:54:17

You'll get the hang of it in no time, welcome to MN! grin
