Hi

I noticed which browsing a thread yesterday that had a extremely long link in it, that the mobile site didnt wrap the link, instead i had to scroll back and forth to try and read all the longer paragraphs underneath/before it.

This is the post im talking about: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=48&topicid=166302&page_no=1#1254365

is there any way to set it up so that it will wrap the link in the mobile site so you dont have to scroll back and forth to read posts? The full version of the site does this

yes i understand people can post shorter links but most of the time you cant teach an old dog new tricks and it is easier to make the forum work around them than make them work around the forum

and also kinda on this topic

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=49&topicid=171200

On the full site it automatically resizes pictures down to 560 or so pixles, on the mobile site it doesn't, this means in a thread like the one above where someone hasnt bothered to post an appropriate sized picture it absolutely screws with the wrapping of the text in posts and you have to scroll left and right to read the posts.

sorry for bringing up all these issues at once as i dont normally browse that often on my phone.

Thanks for pointing out... I actually just spent the last hour or so fixing the style for the desktop site so this kind of long links won't "break" things anymore.

Will replicate this later to mobile.

Paragraphs of "normal" text are now breaking in the middle of words in Safari (8.0.5) - could this be related?

Yes, it is.

It seems there is no way for long strings to be wrapped. Browsers either do it on the word or anywhere and bot don't work when someone posts long links for example.

Will revert it soon.
