I’m stuck on the mobile site even when I press the full site button!

Help! I hate the mobile site.

Please fix this EB. The mobile site is horrible. We don’t use it for a reason.

The mobile site always takes me to the end of a thread, where I obviously want to read the start of the thread first. Does that happen to anyone else?

Even worse it only accepts my password on the full version.

Click to the top right of your browser where the three dots are and you get the drop down menu with options like new tab etc. Click on the one that says Desktop site. Still not perfect but better than the fricking mobile site. FWIW if EB went to mobile site only,I'd be gone for good.

I will get someone to look in to this, my iphone will not go to full version but my ipad is on full version.

Same problem here on an iPhone using Safari. The mobile site sucks. I want the full site version back.

Also, on the PC (using Windows, Chrome) when I press the back button it no longer refreshes the view.

These changes are frustrating and irritating. Like PP, I can't use the mobile site on my phone and simply won't visit EB if its not an option.

I had this problem too. Weird. I have no idea how to navigate the mobile version. Seems ok now.

It's defaulting back to mobile again

What sort of development team roll out changes with no notice on a Friday afternoon

That was unexpected!

The mobile site is back to normal but the not refreshing when choosing back in the browser isn't.

It takes me to the last viewed post. If I’ve never viewed a thread and click on it, it takes me to the first post. Next time I look at that thread it will take me to where I left off.

However, if I click on the hyperlink to the last poster it takes me to that. In a new thread if I do that, it will never open at a point earlier than that.

It works pretty well for me but not if I accidentally click on the last poster when I meant to just click the thread 🤨

Hi ladies

I have reported the “back” button issue as well, so that will be looked at soon :) Thank you for your patience

Only happens when I’ve been in the thread before.

TBH I hate the full site, I prefer mobile, I have issues with not being able to get out of desk top mode and back to mobile. I don’t enjoy having to expand just to read a post on desktop version.

Defaulting to mobile site again. Which wouldn’t bother me, but there is no skip-to-the-last-post button once I open a thread. And I don’t want to click “next” 50 times to get to the end. So annoying. Is it just me?

That’s my bugbear too.

Fix that, and make likes visible on the mobile version and if never use the desktop version on my phone.
