Thread pages wrong width on iPad

Funnily enough, not this page.

Using Safari, not app.

Here's a screen shot. I always hold my iPad 'sideways' - landscape.

It starts loading as if for landscape view, but once the advert's loaded, it shrinks to portrait view width, even though I hold my iPad as landscape.

Seems to be in _chat threads only for me, if that helps?

It's the Twitter feed that's messing it up, it's the wrong size for the page.

Hi all,

Thanks for letting us know that the site's looking a bit wrong on the iPad. We'll alert our Tech team and let you know as soon as we've heard back.

It's odd for me too

Mine seems fine. Have you tried it on Firefox, Jux?

Why not use the mobile site on your iPad? Much easier.

It's only in chat

Same here. The tiny print hurts my eyes! iPad, Safari, all updates done.

Sorry, that photo doesn't really show the problem 😳

Cozie does Firefox work on an iPad?

They brought out a FF app some weeks back, Jux. (I loathe Safari.) You'll find it in the App Store. smile

It's the Twitter box that's causing the problem I think - it goes past the blank column shown in the OPs picture up to the edge of the screen.

I may do that, Cozie, but tbh I have so many apps now it's beginning to annoy me! For instance, I can't just open a browser tab and go to google maps any more, I have to find the Maps app among all the other apps on my (millions of!) home screens, and so on. That's one reason why I don't have the MN app.

Sounds like some 'housekeeping' is needed? wink

The.MN app is actually very good. - and I rather like the speed and robustness of the FF one. ( So far.) The latter is only a start of course but Mozilla are a pretty responsive bunch so I suspect it will improve greatly with user feedback.

Good luck anyway. smile
