I downloaded the app, but am having trouble logging in. I tap the login screen and it then disappears which makes it impossible for me to log in. What's up with that? :help:
I went Apple App Store and re downloaded the app. The logon screen again was black. I took a shot. I typed in my username, hit next. Typed in my password and hit go and it worked. This app is much nicer for me to use.The forum app is run on forum runner so if you download the forum runner app and search for this forum, you'll find it. As for the login issue, I too am seeing a black screen when I try to login. A report about it has been sent to the tech team about it. Also for clarification, what do you mean when you say the screen jumps? Does it redirect you to a random page on the forum? Thanks for the help! ~Km, community support
With Regards to the IE portion you mentioned, what version of the browser and is the site on your compatibility list? IE 10 and above is known to have strange issues loading sites and this is the fix for that.For me the 'jumping' is in the website, not the app.
I have my setting so log in is automatic when I load the home page.
The first time the page loads it looks like it is complete, then a couple seconds later it jumps and sometimes there is a message in the area above the link bar
"We are now allowing you to add a link to your classified listing in your signature. Only one (1) link is permitted at any given time. The link title must be the same as your classified ad title. The link must be in the standard font size 2. Post padding to get your classified signature link aired more often is prohibited, however, the more legitimate posts you make, the more opportunity for others to see your item for sale."
Simultaneous with the message being populated it looks like the whole page resizes slightly (left/right borders) and also at this time the ad at the top of the right column is populated.
All following times the home page loads there is no message above the link bar but after the page appears to be loaded a second or two later it resizes a little bit (left/right borders) and the top ad in the right column is populated.
The iPad handles going back better than the computer, one swipe takes me back one page.
Some, maybe most, of this is just the way ipad works and is not criticism just feedback.
I don't use the iPad app much because I like the full site better than just what the forum app displays.
I do use the android app on my phone quite a bit and it works well.
The following is criticism....
When I am using a PC (win7 pro and IE)... I am assuming it is the way the ads load ... But the back button in IE is pretty much worthless.
It takes 10's of very rapid clicks to navigate back a single page.
There's really no excuse for that.
The ads should load as part of the page and one click should take me back one page.
