Mobile user access
Mon, 11-12-2012 - 11:31am
While I can read replies and reply only via the quick reply, I can not access all the messages on any board if they do not appear on the front page or are in the top ten posts. When I was on the home page : my screen name does not appear at the top of the page, showing that I am logged on, however, I must be since I have the ability to do a quick reply. When I clicked the hyperlink to sign in the whole page became a sliver on the left side of my screen and locked up my iPad. Will we ever as mobile users be able to access the site in the classic version/non mobile like pre change days?

Hi Elle,

Erin is out for the week but I did contact her and she asked me to let you know that her comment was in reference to your question. She will be back to iVillage next week.:-)

Hi Shywon, This has nothing to do with pages loading. The blue hperlink goes nowhere. This is the link and shows nothing for me, let me See if this copies. Ok this is what I see: BOARDS Skip to main content Menu

 Hi Erin, Thanks for your reply. How do I share a lock up? Honestly, I am patient, take changes, and have no frustrations when openly am aware what my future holds. I have been through more changes than I can remember, even one where I paid for a full membership at ivillage via subscription. I find your confession   "if there will be access via mobile devices" to be disappointing/disconcerting.  Especially when ivillage has been/is advertising, what I have been waiting for at least two years " for the coming soon ivillage app". What is the technological plan for ivillage?

Elle- I can read the second page and beyond on my phone, but it takes quite awhile for the page buttons to load. I usually end up scrolling all the way to the bottom to find them there. I've also noticed that it will jump to the first unread as long as it's on the first page. Beyond that, it won't. It's also slow to let me type at times. (This page is STILL loading for me, and I've typed this whole message and proofread!)

I'm sorry for the frustration. I'm an iphone user so I know personally where you're coming from.

I know they are aware of the issues with the mobile site but I don't have an update as to when it will all be fixed or if there will be access via mobile devices.

What I do is just hit quick reply and then it forces me to login and I go from there. I haven't had any lock-up issues going that route. Can you try and let me if you experience the same lockup doing it that way?

Again, I am sorry for the inconvenience and frustration.
