Why are some fluther threads showing up wrong on my iPhone?

Asked by AstroChuck (37461points) January 14th, 2009 from iPhone

Some threads are displayed only covering half the screen, and some even less than that. This sucks as I have to whip out my reading glasses to read the text. I know it’s not just my iPhone doing this. I’m on my daughter’s iPod touch right now and it’s doing the same thing. Are the fluther gods aware of this and addressing this bug?

I have not encountered this problem before and I use my 1st gen iPod Touch with the latest firmware update. Sorry.

While on this topic, may I suggest a less convenient logout button on the web app if it’s updated soon. When I go for the activety link I sometimes press “Logout”. I try to hit back and have to log in again and then repeat the process. Other than that the web app is near flawless for me. One of the best web apps to compliment one of the best websites.

I have had this problem a lot lately. The screen renders at about 2/3 size with a black bar running down the right side.

Same thing here. It seems to be what happens if someone post a really long link.

Testing :: Buy posting a long link….....

edit :: Yup. That broke it.

I sent a screencap to feedback@fluther.com the other day, so hopefully this thread and that email will allow them to figure out the little bug.

It only started occurring since the @username links were put in. Ithink that has something to do with it.

Same problem here too.

This thread is taking about 2/3 of the screen. I’ve had some that were only 1/2 (edit above to read 2/3 and some even less than that). Very annoying when you have old eyes.
Thanks, everyone.

I might be an idea for the founders to turn
