Hi,

Since a few weeks the layout of pages on www.gamedev.net are not readable anymore, meaning the layout is completely messed up.

Frames zoomed in, other frames missing.

 

Anyone else have this problem/ how do I solve it?

(maybe some setting or it's trying to load a 'mobile' version of the site)

Does the layout still look at all like the non-mobile version of it?   I know the right hand column is removed if the browser resolution is lower than 1024px.

=P whoa.. that does indeed look like crap. It's definitely Safari related.. looking into it.

UPDATE: Any better?

No. Still looks the same for me.

Is the page cached in your browser (can you hard refresh?)   I'm on OSX right now and I can scale Safari to any size now and it is working well.

Sorry, still the same problem.

edit: to be clear, I wiped my history then tried a new page that I know I haven't visited on the ipad yet.

It looks mashed-up on iPad, but Chrome on my Win7 works like it should!

Chrome on iOS isn't really chrome, it's just a reskinned safari with your chrome bookmarks, etc. The rendering engine is completely different to desktop chrome.

Looks the same in Safari on my iPad too, practically unusable.
Under Chrome it looks better (see sednihp's screenshot) and is usable but everything is chunkier as of the past few weeks. Before that it looked fairly similar (if not the same) as Chrome on my PC, which I preferred. It's almost as though it is trying to be a mobile-optimised version of the forum except things just aren't laying out correctly.

How about now?

Cleared the cache, but it still looks the same... Takung up about half the screen, with huge fonts and zoomed images.

I could be wrong, but I get the feeling that the site is detecting Ios, and attempts to display something that might fit an iphone screen. Does anyone have an Iphone to try with?

I still have the same on IPad (1), no iPhone though

I tried it on Chrome, Safari (both Windows and OSX), Firefox, and a Iphone/Ipad simulator and can't reproduce any of the problems anymore.   What pages are not working for you guys?

I misplaced my iPad for a few days but it is now back with me and I am happy to report that GDNet appears to render, layout and function as it used to on both Chrome and Safari. I am in fact making this post on my iPad 3 :-)

I haven't taken any deliberate action to make it work for me, it just worked.
