Am not sure whether am the only one having this issue. When travelling, I login here using my Phone. For a better experience, I use android's 'Chrome broswer' since it have the option to see a 'desktop site' version of a website on a phone. The problem comes in when am typing something on the forum or chat etc. When I type something and then try to delete, the action becomes shitty. I delete, and the word retypes itself...i delete again and the same continue repeating itself time and again. I wish there was a way I could record and send the video showing that.

I love my pets.

The editor we're using for desktops/laptops doesn't typically work on the phones. It ends up behaving differently based on what software keyboard you have installed. The default samsung keyboard would work but the google,swiftkey,etc would not on android so we took the decision to reduce the functionality on mobiles in this case. We intend to revisit this in the future though.

  

Maybe we can fix what ever is making you want to see the desktop site version on the phone if it isn't to do with the editor itself.


Could you please describe the issues you have with the normal mobile view?

I will try using the mobile phone directly, on both Chrome and Opera Mini and see whether I will experience the issues. Will surely let you know!

I love my pets.

Another concern that I'd like to raise since I'm using my phone is that the options to italicize, bold or make the font size bigger or smaller are not present.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Looking forward that you would address this in the future as most people nowadays opt for the 'handy' options. Thank you.
