Can anything be done about typing on mobile?

  • Latest update: Apologies for errors yesterday, due to php resource allocation needs configuring to suit the server, and can only do that when we know what's not working.

    There should be no more errors now, but there might be a bit more configuring required. If you get any error 500's or other errors browsing, please send me a pm with your ip address, time of error (and your timezone if not uk), and the page you're trying to access.

    Should be leading to some big performance increase and new features. Thanks to everyone for patience and support.

I don't know if it's just me, but typing on my phone is a massive ball ache. I think it's due to the site auto saving the post, it kind of refreshes half way through a word and fucks it up. It means you have to go back and retype which is a bit annoying.

It's not a massive problem and doesn't stop me from posting, but it would be so much nicer without it.

Still? I had this problem before, did a site upgrade which for me fixed the issue. I've tested on a few mobile devices (android) and it's fine. I'm writing this from my phone now. Autocorrect etc. All working as normal.

What phone/browser are you using? Is anyone else having this issue?

S7 with Chrome. I'm using Android 6 though as I can't be bothered to update, could be a reason?

How long ago did you do the site upgrade?

Few weeks ago. I've tested on all my mobile devices today and it's fine. Try clearing the cache on your phone, maybe that's screwing with it? I am preparing for a full upgrade to XF 2.0, but that will take longer as i need to test that more things don't break as a result of the upgrade.

My phone is s7 edge, but android v7. Chrome browser.

Aight so I've been using my mobile more and it seems the problem has been fixed, my bad. However, going back to correct a word if it's been auto corrected to something else causes a similar problem. Maybe that's what I've been noticing.

Say for example "example" gets spelt wrong, I got back to change the last 3 letters or whatever and it ignores the previous word and starts a new one whilst still attached to then end of "example". I don't really know how to explain it tbh.

Mines a nightmare, which is why my posts are all over the shop. I've just stopped caring though and crack on, if anything it gives people the chance to banter by griefing me and sometimes springs up a corker.
