PP issue with some iPhones? or not?

Postby super_dipsy » 18 Aug 2018, 09:28

The initial set of mobile support changes a few weeks ago that focused on the Public Press ran into a Safari issue on iPhones which screwed up the PP display (still usable, but horrible). The latest changes included a fix for that Safari issue as well as a number of other Safari bugs. However, I have at least one report that the new stuff put up a few days ago has not fixed the iPhone PP in some scenarios. I am trying to zero in on browser / phone combo, I suspect this is another Safari 'quirk', but it may be it is an issue for some other browser.

This bug thread is a placeholder to a) let people know we know about the problem and b) to track any progress. If you are having trouble on an Iphone, feel free to post here but remember to say what browser you are using. Also to be safe, although the latest changes should have forced the cached data to reload, clear your cache and try again first if you know how to do that.

Also, it would be helpful to know if you are using an iPhone and the PP looks OK! Again, knowing the browser / iPhone / iOS combo would be useful. This will all help us zero in on the issue. Frankly, given what I have found so far about Safari, I would strongly recommend anyone currently using Safari on their phones to use a more reliable browser ;) . Opera is good I understand, and myself I use Firefox.

Ah, got a PM that shows two issues: The words aren't wrapping to the next line on the PP content, and there are few lines shown. I know the wrapping bug and I know how to fix it, the fix must have got lost. I should be able to sort that later today. Not sure about theother bit.

I've made a change to try to make the Public Press look better on iPhone Safari. Safari on iPhones for some reason is rather non-standard, and what works in all the other browsers doesn't work properly on Safari / iPhone. Unfortunately this change may detract a bit from other browser PP views, because it backs off some of the smarter things you can do, but hopefully it has not impacted other browsers too much.
