All mobile users suffering with "changes",

I have placed a non-invasive page at this link
http://54.186.67.66/ddo.html

There are more sophisticated ways around this issue, but I believe this one to not break the TSO of the site, and fit the bill.

Try it out on different devices, and let me know if you have issues.

Extremely impressive. There's just one problem:
It doesn't work right.

I have three options out there right now. Anyone willing to try and report device back would help.

http://54.186.67.66/ddo.html
http://54.186.67.66/ddo2.html
http://54.186.67.66/ddo3.html

Report back
1) Device.
*) Ipad/ipone/surface pro etc.
*) browser (if you know it)
2) Experience.
*) If it didn't work, use some words to explain what that means.
*) If it works, but is chopping off, or styled funny, explain or screen shot.

None worked.

1) nexus 4
Chrome browser
2) the width was about right, but the page was mostly blank. It just had the header and them some words "debate.org is a free online community..." After that it's just a bunch of white space.

Let me dig up a actual Android device - I was testing on emulators for android. Hold tight.

"The right is slightly cut off though." Is it scrollable? How much is cut off? Like can you see your profile pic?

It only cuts off on certain pages, like the homepage. Yeah I can see it.

Yeah. It's not a problem though.

Whenever I click add reply on a forum post, it directs me to the bottom of the screen instead of the top, so I have to scroll up. That's all though

Does it resize as it is doing this? Does the screen just scroll to the bottom?

I will be making no more changes unless I hear back of issues with one of the pages.

Let people know. I will leave the pages up until the site issues are resolved to peoples satisfaction (or I am asked to remove them by the site admins).

Removed all JS resizing, and just went with very high page. Seems to work well on all devices.

There seems to be a lot more added space below...if I scroll down I keep scrolling past lots of white blank space to get to the bottom.

The simple solution to the bottom cutting was to just set height to like 12k px. I was resizing with JS ans stuff, but it is just a quick fix thing, so...

It appears that this is getting some use. One complaint has been about the very tall page size. That is a problem with detecting the contents height. I have updated DDO2 to allow users to manually change the height of screen.

http://54.186.67.66/ddo2.html

I may fuss with it over the weekend, let me know how the resizing works.

Cross domain scripting leaves me with very limited tools, but I have updated this hoping to address two issues.

1) Page height
* At the bottom of the page, you have two buttons to shrink or expand the page

2) Internal links
* If you click on a internal link that referenced outside the site, it will break out of the page. No resolution for this.

3) Links at top of page.
* Attempting to make nav a bit easier.
