Using Macros with a mobile

When I use my phone to access the forum, even using the 'Full' forum interface, I cannot seem to use the full WYSIWYG editor, with the BBCode symbols, and Macros dropdown. Am I missing something or is the 'Full' interface still not quite 'Full' for mobiles?

Re: Using Macros with a mobile

...and hello again, I have some more explanation on the matter from our supplier:

Unfortunately, Rich Text Editor is not supported on mobile OSes anymore.
There was a time when desktop view on a mobile device was exactly the same view you'd see on a desktop device - including the RTE -- but since the RTE misbehaved on mobile devices even under desktop view, it was (and is) suppressed.

@Simon, could you also let us know what phone OS and browser you're using and whether you've had similar problems with other sites/forums?

Actually, this is quite frustrating, as it seems there isn't even a Search facility when using a mobile. Smiley Sad

Is it me, or has the Mobile interface now gone completely?

Hi Simon, you are right, we noticed some errors in the mobile interface and disabled it for now. It'll be restored after the fixes are in place. Thanks for bearing with us!

Anything further on this, @AniaC ? I noticed the mobile interface came back, but has gone again. Smiley Sad
