Agreed. Hopefully they can iron it out for us.

I mentioned this to Cricket and she said LJ’s is still not mobile friendly. I’m having the same problem, I assumed it was because of a new phone ( IPhone 6) but a lot of folks are having the same issue, works in landscape mode but not in portrait. Some changes had to have been done to cause multiple platforms to screw up.

I noticed the same issue on my galaxy today. The ads still work though.

I prefer desktop sites. Hate mobile versions.

If you turn the phone sideways it becomes “normal” again but yea I noticed the mix up yesterday afternoon or so. I found it more than useable in the past on my iphone.

I don’t use my phone for LJs…It sucks, and always has…it works much better on my iPad Air….Bigger and clearer, and that’s all I have to say about that.!!

I just looked, they have tried to make it more mobile friendly since my post in March but it still looks like crap because 80% of the page is ads and yes I am logged in.

That’s the whole point.
Of the ads, that is.
This used to be a forum where people with a common interest could get together and talk and share ideas and such.
Now it is just another platform to shove a bunch of advertising crap in our face.
And some times the ads don’t even have anything to do with wood working in the first place.
Getting to be a huge time suck for me.

I agree. I use it almost exclusively on my phone, and it has been just about unbearable these past few days.

I use LJ’s almost exclusively on my iPhone. To help Cricket et. al. here is my phone info: ATT iPhone 6+, software version 8.3 (12F70). Still normal when in landscape but as others have mentioned it is unusable on any part of the site when in portrait mode. The site has worked previously on my current phone, I can’t recall if it was messing up on the previous version but I do know it hasn’t worked in portrait since I updated to the current version iOS.
