My list doesn't scroll down like it used to! I can go as far as the smiley with the zipper going across it's mouth! Can you check with IT to see what they suggest for correcting this problem?

It's not a technical issue TOD - I can do it:



so it's got to be a problem at your end?

What are you using to access SR - computer or phone?

If you can't drag the bar all the way down like I did, make sure your browser bar (at the extreme far right hand side of the page) is scrolled right down to the bottom of the page as well

If that doesn't fix it, try getting out SR and emptying your cookies, then logging in again.

That fixes 95% of all glitches

Nope! That didn't fix it either!
Even after I login your signature picture at the bottom of your post disappears!

Out of curiosity? I logged in on Jethro's laptop to see if the problem was only on my desk top computer!

And the answer is No! It's on his lap top also. The two boxes for the wrap around brackets have also had X's in them for months.

Kaily, I responded in your thread in "trouble shooting". It is possible to enlarge it. And it's easy to do.

If anyone wants to send a PM to someone but they're not online to click on their name, click on your "private messages" at the top right and then in the list on the left, click on "send new message" and type in their name and then write and send the message.

I think Tinypic can be a problem with this. I use postimage.org and have better luck and that site also resizes, if desired, at the same time. It converts to https://


I am only posting what I think Dee said and meant but there may be a better answer. (See? Dee? I really do pay attention, lol)

Desktop view for Iphone

the desktop button is currently not functional.

thanks for the work around Lorax

to get back to the mobile display version of the site (on any device in desktop view) scroll right down to the drop down menu at the extreme left hand bottom of the page

On my Samsung android, the only way I can get desktop view is to click on the three buttons upper right, and choose "desktop" from the drop down menu.

The actual Desktop link on the site doesn't work at all on my phone.

Hope this helps somebody who is struggling with this.

Thanks Dee, for this handy, dandy thread.
