I have been getting some questions about how to find things on the mobile device and figured I may as well share the information publicly in case it’s useful.
Where’s my stuff on a mobile device?
When you are in landscape mode on an iPad or tablet, you typically get the whole site looking like it does on desktop. I say “typically” because the site auto scales based on the screen of the device you are using.
When you are in portrait mode on a an iPad or a tablet, you get the layout for mobile/phones.
In the mobile version, you have nearly all of the same items as the desktop, but you find things in different places.
You have the same navigation items in the white bar at the top that you have on a computer
Most of the right-hand side items on desktop can be found at the bottom of the page on mobile, after the last comment and the comment box.
Items in the category bar are mostly found in the “hamburger”, which is the 3 lines toward the top on the right.
Between the stuff that’s on the bottom, the stuff that’s in the “hamburger”, and the stuff that’s in the white bar at the top, you have the same capabilities you have on the desktop.
Hot Tip for Navigation on Mobile Devices – White bar at the top
Up Arrow – up to the header at the top
Down Arrow – all the way down to the header
Left Arrow – previous thread (but you don’t see the name of the thread, you just go there when you click)
Right Arrow – next thread (same thing, no thread name; this is transportation to the next newest thread)
COMMENT in the white bar at the top
– takes you directly to the box where you can write a comment.
– it can also be used to take you to all the stuff that’s on the right-hand side on a computer.
REFRESH in the white bar at the top
– this is handy on mobile where you might have to swipe multiple times before you see the browser refresh button
– on a desktop computer, it’s faster if you refresh in the normal way, but this REFRESH still works
Plus a Tweet for Fun!
Here you go
🎶 3 eggplants peeled and thinly sliced
6 cups of spaghetti sauce is nice
1 package of some shredded mozzarella
Breadcrumbs are an important part
The ingredient love comes from the heart
Make the oven 350 to cook your eggplant parma 🎶 pic.twitter.com/vKZGxoNJK6
