Topic Replies with mobile units
« on: November 01, 2011, 02:38:20 pm »
I'm going strange places on my Android phone when I click the email link to see what a fellow COGger has posted.  For example, charlie gary's post to 'Tools' - the link sends me to the forum registration page as though I wanted to access something off limits to my membership.  No problem accessing the post on the desktop, though.
For example #2: topic reply to 'Wrenching Session: Advance notice' by BBerry - the android link sent me to the topic but I could not see BBerry's post.  And cannot see it on desktop version, either.

Hope this information helps clear up a gremlin or two in the website.  For the record, I go to strange places enough on my own and usually don't need additional assistance...   ;)
TCARS, y'all

In this case I think this area for Website is referring to the www.cog-online.org web site for COG member services and not the forum.  I assume you are talking about threads in the forum not reading correct on your phone.

PS:  IT is out of town for a few weeks.  We may not have much to offer you till he gets back.  I know I know nothing of Android.
 
PSS: Can you send links to the offending posts please.

The post by Charlie is in the Humor Mill which does require you to log in.  I had the same result on my phone.

The other link opened fine but I see no BBerry post in the thread with either the desktop or the phone.  Not sure about this one.

Ok. Same results I had.  Thank you for verifying that I was not crazy (entirely). Did not have to register into Humor Mill from desktop, but I can understand why registration might be a good thing.
