mobile site, lots of problems

My blue bar has gone, and none of the buttons at the top is responding so I can see whether my customisation has reset or something.
And on Topics the only link that's working is Active Conversations.

Anyone else suffering? I'm on an HTC (android) and trying to use desktop site is no good on small screen.

I've given up trying to use the mobile site on my kindle.

The buttons rarely work.

It's virtually impossible to use on my Blackberry too.

Mine's never really been great. I think people just got bored of posting about it. Unresponsive buttons which don't consistently do what you tell them to do

Sorry for shouting. I can't even find 'site stuff' in the topics, I just go round in circles.

All my problems were ignored by hq and the problems haven't gone away.

I still have 3cm of readable screen between ads and blue buttons - both of which bleed when I scroll up or down.

It bores the tits off me. But I'm here a lot, so no need for them to change anything back <Hotel California>

The mobile site worked just fine until they changed it.

It's never worked properly since.

Have reported myself to see if there's anything that can be done - really frustrating!

Hi everyone,

Gah so sorry the mobile site isn't working properly, we'll get tech on the case ASAP.

Do you know what drives me up the wall the most (you'd die of boredom if I listed everything)

Each pages loads more than once - so I get a page and merrily start reading then something decides to bump me back to the top. This is mostly a problem with things like Active Convos - I'm just about to click a juicy looking link and ... BAM ... back to the top of the page and I hit a boring pinned linky, usually an advertising partner thread.

I most hate this 'feature' when I've used the back button. It used to take me back to the previous page and to the place on that page where I clicked from. And to be fair it still does until ... BAM ... back to the top of the page angry

I'm using Chrome on Galaxy S Android if that helps.

Hello, sorry to hear you're having frustrations. We've been trying to replicate the issues you described on our Android devices and I'm afraid we're not having any luck.

booksandwool are still having problems?

elQuintConyo Have you tried turning the blue buttons off? If you don't find them very useful there is an option to hide them which would free up some screen space.

Hello usualsuspect and SwedishEdith, can you please let us know which buttons aren't working for you so we can look into it? Also SwedishEdith which device are you using?

Beehatch - We've been thinking about this one and trying to get it to happen for us on various devices (including a very old model Samsung one of MNHQ have) but it's not happening for us. We think it might be to do with the page loading. If you do find yourself in a slow loading situation setting your customise options to display less threads in Active and less posts on each thread should help speed things up and maybe avoid any jumping therefore. Could you give that a try?

Thank you

Yep, all still borked for me. I can't get the blue buttons to show (because the button that I think would customise doesn't do anything) and active threads is the only one that works on Topics - so I can't even see my own threads. (am on desktop site in mobile writing this, not user friendly for mob!)

I keep getting logged out confused
