I have a work around, but it's very convoluted, and if I have to keep doing it, I'm going to kill Sarge soon.

Nothing on the forum has changed. Probably some browser update has caused it. It's not occurring for me on Android/Chrome. So, I'll need some more details.

For those affected can you please:

  • Provide your device make/model?
  • Provide whcih browser you're using?
  • Are you using the full or mobile style?
  • Which forum theme are you using?
  • Have you set your mobile browser to use the 'Desktop Site'?

Also, please ensure you're running the latest operating system and browser versions on your phones before proceeding any further.

Anyone that answers only a portion of the above questions/requirements will not receive further help (it was a pet hate from my old IT days).

TL;DR: Help me, help you.

How's that different than question 3?

My phone hasn't asked to update itself.

Also, it's currently not doing it for this post.

Could be an issue with Android 8.0. The S7s are starting to get a bit old now. They're sitting a whole version level behind.

Does the same issue occur in another browser, e.g. Firefox, Opera, etc.?

Scroll down, touch "sitch to mobile site" and hold for a second or two. The browser won't follow the link and the text box will shrink off the buttons.

It doesn't do it if you quote someone. That was my workaround. I just had to delete the quote if I didn't really want to quote

That's what I've been doing, too!

Haven't tried what B suggested yet though.

I tried it and it works but is more annoying. For a few days I had a completely obstructed view and had no choice but to use the quote way.

Now regular posting is back to 99 3% again and I can do it via either enlargement or precise fingering.

yeah baby :naughty: :censored:
