    It is a favorites feature ... most of us dont like it ...

    But it should only be on the home screen now ... if you go to a particular forum it should NOT be there ....

    It's on every page....it scrunches up all the messages to the right of the screen making them very hard to read

    When I view the website, I can see everything fine, but then when I log in to my account, suddenly the page is only viewable down the right half of my screen, both in portait and landscape modes.

    It's especially annoying as I lose some abilities such as 'New thread'...

    Any ideas?

    yeah it sucks. the only way round it as far as i can see, is to just log out of the forums and browse. kinda stupid really, cos if you want to contribute, you have to log back in again!

    SORT IT OUT PLEASE MODERATORS!

    Moderators have no control over that. But, I'll remind Rob of the complaints and see what he wants to do.

    I'm having this problem as well. Logging in jacks up the mobile view. It disuades me from being a poster and makes me just want to lurk so the page looks better!

    Viewing these forums as a lurker was great. The mobile site was fast, and very usable. Once you log in though, you can only see half the screen on the Hero because the left side is some "My Android" feature that's completely whited out. It makes it much less enjoyable to use the website while logged in!

    Any tips to get rid of this "My Android" sidebar in androidforums mobile?

    I posted the same thing a couple days ago. It sounds like its being worked on, maybe... I sure hope so... that waste is so... wasteful.

    its been mentioned by many people, myself included. its ridiculous that they haven't done anything about it yet. a mobile phone forum that can't be accessed on a mobile phone???? apparently its 2009.....

    Does someone mind taking a couple pictures or a video of the problem? I've been trying to duplicate the issue but can't - so I'm not sure what to fix?

    Try it now. May need to log off and back on.

    Rob turned off the mobile version, should be full HTML now and not half mobile-half jacked. If still jacked, see his reply above this.

    Hey spenspuma, are you using the web browser that came with your phone or are you using some widget for web

    Does this mean there is no more mobile version of the site? I prefer using mobile. Thanks for your attention to this though guys.
