Iphone - dodgy display of comments/forum

by notfastenough   February 19, 2014  

Anyone else get an issue where the comments boxes are chopped short down the right hand side when viewed on an iphone?

I've just tried to replicate it, but it's hit and miss. I do have a screenshot but can't post that from this machine.

I get dodgy things all the time lately, the smiley's are all over the words. The writing rules off the edge of the blue boxes and you cannot read a few words...

I thought it was my computer, tried clearing everything to no avail.

Dave is away abroad at the moment, so I'm sure he'll look when he gets a chance/comes back

Don't have the problem on my phone, Samsung Galaxy S3, but do have it on my laptop.

Like Gkam, thought it was at my end but maybe not.

I very much doubt it is a holiday, he's in constant contact anyway for the fantasy game. He might be away testing bikes and kit...

Something else I've noticed in a variation in font size for some of the posts. Those with a smaller font seem to be OK but ones with a slightly larger font are the ones that appear to have most problems.

It's probably more to do with the devices the posts are being made from.

I occasionally get the chopped comments thing too, on an Android device and Firefox browser. Usually if I close/reopen the browser it fixes it. Annoying, but does not happen that often.

probably best that if anyone sees anything untoward, grab a screenshot and post it here and we'll investigate

Like this, the blue box ends, but the writing keeps going.

Yep, that's it. Don't think it's related to the device making the post though, since when it happens it's for all comments on the page.

I periodically get it as well. Chromium 32.0.1700.102 running under Linux (ubuntu 13.10). Sometimes clicking "View: Responsive | Full width" sorts it out...but not always.

While I've been getting these clipped comment sections for a while, today a table in an article was cropped out as well. Screenshots attached.
