Im having issues on both my phone and windows/android tablet with some topics.  Its not all, just some the last few words on each page go off the right hand side of the screen making it rather hard to read.  There is no scroll bar to go over either, just the regular one.  And even then it wont be all replies in the topic that does it, just a few.  

 

I dont have any examples atm but I'll try and find some at some stage (damned tablet is flat).  The tablet is a 9.7" running Win8.1/Chrome. It also does it on Android on it (also running Chrome) and on my Xperia Z1 running chrome - I use the desktop site rather than mobile on both devices.  My normal desktop is fine.

I had this crop up a bit using Chrome on Android. Not every post (and sometimes even refreshing was enough to fix it) but found it really frustrating. Doesn't solve the issue directly, but I've flicked over to using Opera on my phone. It dynamically wraps text, so I can zoom without having to scroll left and right. Works a treat.

I too have an Android phone and encounter this regularly. It's been explained that it happens due to long URL's in a post.

 

My quick workaround is to select "MORE" (top right hand corner of my phone browser) and select Request PC Version. I then rotate my phone to landscape orientation whilst it refreshes and this fixes the issues for me. I can then rotate the phone back into portrait orientation and the posts display as they should. My screen rotation option is also set to Auto.

 

9 out of 10 times this works for me.

I suspect your right about the long urls.  Didnt really notice before so I'll keep an eye on it and see.  I could only find one topic today like that and it def had a long url in it. And yes ticking request the desktop site does the trick - no need for me to rotate at this stage. 

 

I'll take a look at my Windows tablet later and see - Im sure I can zoom out a little in chrome to get it to fit.  Maybe I'll have to play around with the overall size of Windows on it..

This works for me, just confirmed in a thread I knew I was having trouble with. Not sure it was related to the links though.

Is this a fixable issue? Would you like more examples?

Yes it is. A lot of work as it requires changing how our forum page is created. Or something else I just thought...
