Wild Interface on a GS4

Recommended Posts

this thing is really hard to use. Heavy weight pages load funny, text bleeding past edges, no room to see the post I am typing due to the clutter of stuff thats not my post and the keypad overrides so much screen its miserable. what is the preferred interface?

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…

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?

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.

    • Same here with spin...too much emphasis and misinformation about low spin being the cat's ass.  I picked up a G30LST a few years back.  Ball just fell out if the sky.  Spin rates of 1500-1700.Even at 110 mph and 10 degree launch, positive AOA...without enough spin it goes nowhere. I got fitted for an M2/HZRDUS yellow and hit it a good 20+ yards further.  It carries further and rolls out with a better decent angle.  Spin rates are more around 2200-2300.
    • I've spent the week of Thanksgiving in Pinehuerst (at Talamore, actually) every year since 2007.  We've had a very few frost delays, and most years its really pleasant.  We've played in shorts lots of times.  Myrtle Beach will be about the same, or slightly warmer. Its a great time for either, not at all crowded, less slow play problems, easier to get a seat in a restaurant, you'll love it.  If you decide on Pinehurst, I can recommend a few good places.
    • I have these too, I like the look.  I really doubt that there's any advantage to be gained.
    • You could vote 0 if that number is closer to the percentage than 1. That's why there's a "0" option.
    • I'm still recovering from my golf marathon, but I'll write just a little bit now.  First and foremost, this was an absolute blast, thanks to the huge effort of the organizers, @mvmac and @iacas, to the sponsors, to the staff at Talamore and MidSouth, and to the attitude and efforts of all of the players.  I was lucky enough this past week to play with every one of my teammates (when I count my pre- and post-tournament fun rounds), and against every player on the West team except for @Golfingdad.  Ten matches total for the 2015 and 2017 Newport Cups, and I haven't been in the group with him once.  Fortunately, I've been able to play with him in Palm Springs a couple of times. I loved the matches, from watching @Pretzel and @phillyk bomb it almost off the planet, to watching my partner @bkuehn1952 sink every putt inside 10 feet (keeping the pressure off of me), to seeing @mchepp try to grind me to dust, one crumb at a time.  I enjoyed the mix  of personalities, the wide range of ages, over 40 years from top to bottom, the huge variations in our golf games.  I'm REALLY happy that the top end of the ages was victorious in the end.  I'm absolutely amazed that the end result was this close once again, although it may just be an indication that we all have reasonably accurate handicaps.   As someone mentioned earlier in this thread, a few of us blue team players talked about the challenge balls on Friday night, with most of it being less than completely enthusiastic.  As it turned out, however, I thought the challenge was pretty exhilarating, really ramping up the pressure.  Of course, my match on Saturday with @mchepp was nothing but pressure to start with, I'm not sure I needed to ramp it up any more.  You know, for us old guys, a heart attack on 18 tee wouldn't be a good thing.   Enough for now.  Once again, my thanks go out to @iacas and @mvmac, the sponsors, the venues, the players, and especially to @RandallT for keeping my lovely wife informed.
