our computer has been giving us problems lately, so i have been trying to use the mobile to view the forum on,
cant say i like doing so though :( everything is so small and it looks very different to what im used to on the big screen so to speak,
and i cant seem to find the gallery button now, is it still there, or is the gallery not available to mobile users ?

i know what you mean about things looking small when viewed on a mobile Jo :D i sometimes thing i need some binoculars to see mine :D

but no, the gallery button is still there, the mobile pages are different to the desktop ones, which i think is down the the size limits of phones,
its just hidden away from view most of the time,
if you look at the pics below, in the first one you can see three horizontal bars (highlighted inside a red circle)

if you tap on that, a menu appears which contains the gallery button,

among other things, so tapping on the gallery bit takes you to the gallery as normal :)

my phone is an old windows one, but i would imagine its much the same on android or iphones ?

how odd :?:
my phone is an android too, but the button does not appear where yours does !
and tapping those 3 bars does not have the gallery button in it either, luckily i can access the gallery through the gallery topic board, so all is not lost,
i shall have to fiddle about with my phone settings and see if there is something in there i can alter :)

i would't have thought the site looked any different on my windows phone to how it looks on an android one, i wonder if it look any different on an iPhone ?

got it sorted now :) i inherited my phone from my son, who had installed a different browser on it, which did not seem to like the site for some reason,
so i uninstalled it and got the Firefox one instead, now it all works fine and looks like the other phones in the pics here :)

glad you got it sorted Jo :D
its weird how things work differently on some phones to others, and that different browsers work in a different way to,
i would have thought this forum would appear the same on whatever device you viewed it on, and whatever browser you used ?
the main thing is that you got it working ok :)

i prefer the computer for viewing anything on the internet, as it all looks to small on my mobile, and when it comes to typing in a reply or similar, i find i make more spelling errors than a small child in nursery school :oops:
i know many people use their mobile for just about everything these days, but i find it so much better on the large screen :)
