Does your S4 kick you into the "Mobile" version of the site? If you scroll all the way to the bottom you can find a button to switch to it (or vice versa).

If you can post a screenshot that would help, too. I don't know what the site looks like on a GS4. The mobile site is quite nice on even smaller screens, though…

will do. Its like the pixel sizes are about 10% to big, in effect.

I almost bet you will see frame sizes set to a certain pixel size, but if that number was changed to "100%" It would find the edges just fine. Im not a code monkey though. Just something I learned in self defense on my website.

So what does that mean in terms of setting up a workable interface on my phone?

So what does that mean in terms of setting up a workable interface on my phone?

I don't know. That's not how the mobile site works on my phones, of course, and this is the first time we've heard of this problem. Can you not pinch to "zoom out"? Does the GS4 zoom in so you can better see the text you're typing or something?

I'll report this with the image(s) to the Huddler folks and will report back here if they have anything to say. Thanks.

You can scroll to the bottom of the page and toggle between desktop/mobile. Maybe for now you'll like the Desktop version more on your phone. I doubt it, but if it's causing this problem all the time, perhaps…

Its just the random variability that makes me crazy. A person can get adjusted to a non moving screen but this is randomly random. Advanced tech growing pains.

The access i have is through google chrome browser on my phone. Im getting a message that the rich text editor is not compatible with my browser if that helps.

@trickyputt here's what they said:

Hey Erik, thanks for reporting this. I've been playing around on Android 2.3 and Android 4.2 to try to reproduce this issue. I'm afraid I haven't had any luck getting my phones to show this same issue the reporter's screenshot.

The only thing that comes to my mind that cuts off the mobile site like that is if the user has preference settings for the auto-rotate set to off. I've seen it where a user will have this feature turned on and turn their phone screen from horizontal to vertical very quickly. The phone does not render the now-vertical site properly causing it to look cut off or bleed over the edge. Could the user give TST's mobile site a try once more but with the auto-rotate feature turned off?

Again, I would be happy to look at this again if the user can provide steps for me to follow to attempt to reproduce.

If you could try that or provide any more details, we'd appreciate it.

I bet thats something like it. The majority time i type im in a vertical mode as it allows the visibility of typed txt to less gun-port-ish.

I have an HTC One, viewing the mobile site in Google Chrome as well and have the same problem. I have to "pinch" the screen as Erik said to zoom it back out when typing.

I cant snapshot the screen in horizontal mode, but imagine looking the wrong way through binoculars and you pretty well have it covered. The hassle factor is so high I would rather not use my phone and just hit the site when I am around a pc.

    • The course with my absolute favorite greens is Eaton Country Club which, despite the name, is far cheaper golf than most courses. A membership is something around $100 a month with no initiation fee or food requirement if I remember correctly. Play golf once a week and you're paying only $25 a round with cart for 18 holes, which is a far better deal than any other course in the area (the 9 hole course I work at is the cheapest in my city at $25 for 9 holes with cart). The greens at this course stimp between 11 and 12 on a daily basis and are the smoothest that I've ever set foot on. Their maintenance crew is fantastic about fixing every little imperfection in the greens. They go over them with a fine-toothed comb every evening to fix anything on the green.  I know there must be some kind of limit to how much play a green like this could sustain, but the course has looked this way every time I've played it (including weekends, weekdays, and such). It's not an enormously busy golf course though, and I don't think it would work on the courses that regularly see 200 or more golfers. I would be willing to bet good money though that, given equal traffic, good maintenance will definitely produce a much higher quality putting surface. The course I used to work for had two people assigned to fix ball marks on the course once a week, both of which had issues with their backs that made bending over for any extended period of time uncomfortable. The greens at that course clearly showed it, with unfixed or only partially fixed ball marks marring every putting surface. The course I currently work at has a maintenance crew that fixes marks whenever they're out to water as well as marshalls that are assigned a couple of holes to maintain during their shifts and I notice that the greens here have many fewer ball marks across the greens. The maintenance crew is also diligent when it comes to regularly verticutting, needle-tining, etc. all of the greens to ensure that they're in top shape. They water the greens up to four times a day depending on the weather conditions as compared to the old course only watering in the evenings and sometimes mornings to save money. As a result the greens at my current course are much more lush and smooth than those at the course I used to work and play at, and I know the difference is the care and attention to the maintenance of the greens (they have similar player traffic).
    • To clarify, I have a push cart. I don't have an umbrella, yet. That probably would have done loads of good keeping the sun from beating down on me. I've got one picked out, but just haven't pulled the trigger yet.  Shooting an 86 was a "decent" to "good" round for me. I felt like I played well. My ball striking was above average today. I had 7 GIR and 7 nGIR. I had 37 putts today, which was my score killer. Oddly enough, most of my 3 putts were on my GIRs! I say this because in the super heat I would think that ball striking would be the first to go, but it didn't for me. Putting was mainly because I'm still working on breaking old habits I had with my old putter and moving to my new putter. Lines were always spot on but I would go back to "popping" the ball like I did with my old putter and would lose it way past the hole.  Definitely need to pick up that umbrella. I imagine that would help a ton. I'm 28 years old and in pretty darn good health/shape and I would have probably died had I actually carried my bag today... lol. Even my lighter "carry" bag.
    • For irons, last year at a Titleist fitting they said I should get the AP1's with the XP 90 gram shaft with a +1/2.  This year I did another free open fitting and they said they wouldn't need to adjust the shaft but I don't remember what shaft they recommended.  Just got fit for a driver last Thursday but i don't think that helps. Scheduled a fitting for Saturday afternoon but who knows if the clubs will still be available then. 
    • I would say nicer golf courses tend to have better greens because of the money it takes to maintain them.  I would say that greens that can routinely hold up to being cut short probably have a healthier denser grass with stronger root systems that allow it to resist damage from pitch marks. I've played on course in Dayton where a pitch mark will just tear up the green versus another course where it just leaves a slight indentation. 
    • Give that man an icy cold beer, stat! I'm relatively young, and I'd take the cart for the breeze between shots and holes as well as the portable shade. What's the point in suffering unless you are practicing for competition in similar conditions? For anyone, I think the physical metabolic toll of moving all that water through to stay cool would tend to lower scores. But you do get longer drives than typical playing conditions, and you may feel extra limber. Older folks face potential heat stroke risk, because they aren't as efficient with heat regulation as a healthy adult. If you are healthy and that's your only day free to play, why not.
