I've not had a problem viewing on my phone (not Apple or let fancy though!)

Believe me, you are still with us, I see no fading around the edges, your invisibility cloak must need pulling up n over your titfer

Lindsay,this problem is not going away,it's getting worse(for me at least,lol)...and i'm paying to not be able to share with people..crap service..

I'm on an iPad Pro and I can't see your profile... I have no probs seeing other profiles.

Jinx, I've just taken a couple of screen dumps from my phone and put them in an album on my profile (called Pics for Jinx57)
I've used yours and Matts profile as an example - I can see them both, but your profile is the only one out of every one I checked that comes up as a half-width page. Everyone elses is full width, just yours reduced.

This is on an iPhone SE btw.

Hi Jinx,
today I've tried on the new site to view your photos from last weekend. That album or any other would not open using my iPhone 6S plus !?!

RIIIIIIGGHHTTTT...... I think I found it (big thanks to Panuno for making screenshots!)

The problem, I think, was that in your write-up you listed a load of words separated by commas... but with no space after the commas!
For example:

Now, on a desktop / normal monitor it viewed fine
But on older iPhones with a small screen resolution, this stretched off the page. Because by default this looks to the browser as a long word (rather than a bunch of words separated by commas).

The solution was a small style change which tells the browser that it's ok to break up words to wrap onto the next line for write-ups.

The new site is not affected by this.

So, now both old and new sites should be ok for you. I'd like to hear from anyone if not (and please make a screenshot if you know how on your device)...

Old site:

new site:

Both work fine for me on desktop and mobile (Android, Nexus 6P)

Using a Mac Pro 3.1 2008 (8 core) running Mavericks OSX 10.9.5 I can see your profile clearly, however the 2nd line of the r/h column "Happen.Unusual.Garrulous,Emotive,Literate,Numerate,Tactile,Impulsive,.Born" overruns the column width, only a minor irritation, all photos are visible also. Hope this is of some help

It does appear to be struggling with the spacing of text though as my previous post shows.
Imola72 @ 02/08/2017 16:30  

I was having problems but seems ok now Jinx :)

jinx57 @ 02/08/2017 17:27  

Jinx why are you using apple? them americans carnt even make a decent motorcycle
dennyboo @ 02/08/2017 19:14  

I don't use Apple,it's people with Apple stuff that are having trouble with my profile/photos not opening..
jinx57 @ 02/08/2017 20:49  

And,sorry,Matt,but another report back by Apple user as 'no go'
jinx57 @ 02/08/2017 20:50  

Thanks Jinx that's why I aint getting any nods they carnt see me sorted
dennyboo @ 02/08/2017 21:50  

Jinx - new site or old site? What kind of Apple device (if iPhone etc, please ask what model number). I'll see if I can find a friend with the same model I can test with.
Matt @ 02/08/2017 23:27  

I'll chase it up...:)
jinx57 @ 03/08/2017 07:38  

Bobmatt....iPhone and Applemac...both old site and new not viewing.. I can try trimming out a few older photo albums (again) if necessary.. But had no effect last time I culled a few off..:(
jinx57 @ 03/08/2017 10:57  

No please leave your photos as they are. I need to find the cause of this myself as maybe others are affected also.

Can you get me some screenshots?
