    Mobile Site Problem

    I occasionally view SMF from my iphone 4. On my phone, all the text within a post seems to be justified to the right and not centered. I have never encountered this problem with any of the other forums I am a member of. BTW, this happens no matter how I have the phone oriented (ie landscape or portrait).
    Is this a bug or is it my phone?



    Thanks,
    Joe

    Anyone else seeing this?

    In the meantime, open up your browser on your phone. Clear your cache, clear your history, clear your cookies, then restart your phone, and visit the site again. Give that a shot.

    I haven't seen it on Android but i do have the app crash sometimes. It seems to do it when there is a pic in the first post.

    Go to your settings and make sure you have "load pictures" enabled.

    The app might be trying to load the picture, to the point of it freezing and crashing.

    On my Iphone 4s I use Safari to log into SMF. When I go to a thread the poster's icon and name are included so I double tap the text portion of the entry and it expands to fill the screen reguardless of the orientaion of the phone(landscape or portrait).

    I'm not certain that answers the question. Mike.

    I've cleared my cache and history and I'm still having a problem. Mind you, it's not detrimental to my viewing a post, it's just annoying.
    Here's what I am seeing:

    Thank you for checking it out on your iphone.
    I dont have a problem posting, it's how the posts are showing up on my phone. Like I said before, no big deal.
    I dont think its my phone because I dont have that problem anywhere else.
