Hi All,any idea why this site works so poorly with an IPad 2,I can log in fine with my MacBook Pro but the Ipad is sluggish,both are wireless.
Thanks
Geo

The mobile version of the site does suck. Doesn't show images on my device and pages seem to never stop loading. I will usually go to the application settings and select "request desktop site."

There have been a number of threads questioning why this site is unusable at times. The answer is that there are about 40 scripts running, in an effort to make money. The site will never completely load, if I allow all those scripts to run. I just allow internet brands. One of the super moderators said that the site may "disappear" if ad scripts are blocked. I beg to differ since millionaires own the site.

Still hasn't been fixed to keep a person logged on either, the keep me logged in box to check has disappeared completely. it's become quite the PIA to constantly log in every time you visit a thread. Was a good site but maybe they are no longer millionaires and cannot afford to fix it properly.

Geo, definitely go to the standard site, not the mobile site. I use the standard site on my Ipad 5 and it is just like being on my PC. I still haven't reconciled the site on my Android, but things can wait until I get home, I guess

Chandler, what do you mean Standard site?Maybe the powers that be will read some of these posts and install some fixes, i.e. Keep me logged in,to many scripts running at once, this used to be a great site but now it's more of a PIA than it's worth,I may have to start looking elsewhere.

Mobile site v.s. desktop site. Its auto detected unless you manually request the desktop site from your mobile device. See post #2.

That's funny.

I doubt that they read posts. That's why they have unpaid moderators. The money that they make on the scripts is more than what they might lose by members who quit. Don't hold your breath.

Can't get the request desktop site to work on the IPad either.

Go to Forum Actions, General Settings, Forum Skins then choose something besides Mobile site. I use Yellow
