Two things: viewing signatures with smartphone browser and ads

I sort of recall something about not being able to view some things about a person (location, signature, whats in the bag) when using a smartphone browser, is this still the case? Or is there a way i can activate a desktop view with a phone browser?

 

second thing: I’m getting an aggressive popup that I’m fairly certain is a scam, is there a way to block it? Screenshot image attached.

There isn't, because the site is responsive, so it just displays what fits on your screen based on the defined styles.

I'd enable signatures on a mobile device if I could, but with children of the default theme, that's not really possible.

A wider view like you can find on a tablet often displays everything (including signatures).

You can't block it, but I report these URLs to the ad network and they're aggressive about removing them.

They're really frustrating, and I understand that. The best thing you can do is what you did - report it to me, so I can report it to them.

Thank you.

Not sure how to block it (though Google settings detail might work). BUT do NOT respond to that ad. I did, on my phone...It takes you through questions. Next you know, you are having many, many junk calls. Best, -Marv

Yeah, I don’t even hit the x in the upper corner of those popups. If I can’t back out of it I open up the page history and kill the popped-page from there.

One thing to do with these is to just go up to the top and type in “the Sand Trap” and reload the site home page. An Apple forum suggested this as it is supposed to bypass what triggered the pop up.

Word is version 4.4 will allow the option of showing signatures on the mobile version of the site.

I'll consider enabling that when 4.4 is available.

Thank you. As a mobile phone user the two things I miss over the desktop version is seeing people’s location (when they have it) and seeing their WITB lines.

Helps when looking in the for sale area “, and for when wanting to join an outing or get a round of golf going with one or more others.

This is now enabled.

We'll give it a little time to see how it goes. I wish it was a per-user setting that you could configure…
