Since there is no subforum for problems like this one, here we go:

The banners of the new US content screws up the formatting on my mobile devices. (Chrome)

When trying to open my notifications, the menu pops up outside of my screen. I have to zoom out a fair amount.

An element not programmed to be adaptative messing up with the rest. Not that surprising, I've seen many examples of that: someone forgot to add some CSS lines for it or to adjust them to make it behave like the rest of the page. I've sometimes made that mess myself (I hardly ever use mobile phones for websearching, so it's easy to forget that feature) a few years ago and also corrected it on someone else's designs, fortunately never going unchecked to a live server.

 

Salute.

As far as i know chrome extensions are not supported on mobile...

Tho there is an extension called "Stylebot" where you can override and save styles of any pages, meaning .. you dont like how this forum looks? Change it only for you.

 

For instance ... this page could be fixed by adding (was wondering why wg forum team has not noticed this already...)

max-width:100%;
max-height:100%;

to the <img class="js-wgcds-event-show"> element.

It can be an issue on desktop as well. I usually have a browser open on one monitor that's in portrait orientation, and the banner really messes with the layout.

Can I ask another question ... bit unrelated to this topic, but I cant find a place to ask...

 

For about a month or so I have noticed that I get random tabs opened when clicking the forums.

Sometimes a tab is opened when I click a page link in a thread, sometimes on "reply/save" button and sometimes just browsing the forums. Very random and very often!

The problem is that within 5 minutes I have around 10 or more of this tabs opened....

 

Very irritating ... whats the deal with this? First of all I am logged in and I am an active player ... so this doesnt even concern me!

 

Can you please ask what the deal is ... because it got my forum experience very ... questionable? :)

Another thing to mention. If you're using the "dark" theme on mobile devices, the header for each post still has a white background.

I have the same issue on my mobile, and since the big banner is here, I cannot make the notification button to work correctly. I have to be in a thread to open the notifications.

Good knowledge of html.

The first rule for my blog was to make it 100% mobile/smartphone friendly, images, videos, text.

@MrConway, @Crysantos Guys. Please. Tell the webmonkeys to stop using those stupid banners...

Not just a problem on mobiles. It also messes up webpage presentation on a 1080p desktop browser. That ad banner is faaaaaaar too long to be reasonable. I can only assume marketing guy made this on a high resolution, possibly widescreen display and didn't bother to check with other resolutions.

Again, not just a mobile problem as it also made a mess of my desktop browser. Just yet another banner that's too bloody long. The fact that it happened AGAIN just shows the feedback from the forum got tossed straight into the wastebin.

 

 

As a workaround I can recommend using an adblocker to manually remove the element.

Yes, it seems like the wrong image ended up there. It was already reported, but it is possible that it will be fixed only tomorrow.

Will check if we can get it to resize automatically in future to prevent such issues.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

It happened 2 or 3 times within the past 3 years and has nothing to do with feedback not being considered. It is a human error when someone simply uploads the wrong file...

As you're here, what about the online users list:

 

 

It has been broken soon for 8 weeks. Not really such a big deal, but you might want to fix it someday...
