Problem accessing Forum with my mobile

Post by Webber2011 » Mon Nov 13, 2017 10:57 am

Hey there guys, the last several days, whenever I try to access the forum on my mobile it says it's not available and may have changed web address.

I haven't seen anybody else bring the topic up, so I'm wondering what's going on ?

This is what I get every time I try to open the forum

I've tried googling F1Technical to see if the link I have saved to my phone has somehow been messed up, but to no avail

Any ideas peoples ?

First time I hear about this.
Problems probably started since our full switch to https, but I cannot reproduce this.

Did you try to use another browser on your mobile? Or reset browser cache / cookies?

One of the things I've noticed is that the rating system doesn't work on mobile either. when you click "recommend" or "rate down" nothing happens.

I had not able to connect via Tapatalk on iPhone/iPad for the last week or so at least, but it is working now, FYI.

Hey there Steven, thanks for the reply mate.

Yeah I did reset the browser/cache and all a few days ago, but I just kept getting the same.
Anyhow mate,
It seems to be working fine now though.


I have a pretty new phone, but a cheap one, an OPPO
It updated overnight as well, so maybe something was going on with my browser that needed fixing ?

Anyhow, thanks for all the replies.

P.S. I can't recommend or downvote while using my mobile either never have, but I don't think it really matters.
Probably saves people from making rash decisions :lol: :lol: :lol:

Confirmed on my Android with Chrome: not working.
When emulating a mobile device with touch in regular Chrome, things work, so this will be a PITA :)

Hey there Steven

When I try to access with the default browser on my android I still get the same thing, but if I use chrome there's no problem

I'm no expert, I know very little about how you would go about fixing something like this

But maybe this info will help you guys sort it ?

Cheers
Simon 😉

I understand that as of Android 5, Chrome is the default browser. I think there is little to no maintenance being done anymore on the Android Browser, so actually I don't know how important it really is if it's only in that browser.

However, on my phone, it didn't work with Chrome either...

So I just checked my phone.

It's telling me the chrome version is 62.0.3202.84, I have no idea if that's the latest ?

To be honest, that number looks more like the Honda's newest engine update :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey there to anyone that's listening.

One thing that has come up in this thread is that you can't upvote from mobiles.

I found a few comments in the 2021 engine regs topic that I really thought were worthy of a thumbs up today on my way home from work, but it alas it still doesn't seem to function

Not a huge issue, but it still seems impossible.

Can that be fixed easily ? ? ?
