I have been posting about this in the About Forum and it was suggested I place it in the Tablet Forum so here is a link to that thread and my last post there. While I'm doubtful a resolution is available short of doing some tweaks to the site programming I also have to keep in mind that there are some very smart people here and maybe one of you knows what the heck is going on.

The thread link

My last post in that thread:

I don't think it's a problem with the tablet.

I say this because if I go to the main City Data page it's huge. If I click on Desktop Version everything looks perfect. It fills the screen from side to side at an expected resolution.

If I click on Mobile Version everything is huge again. Clicking on Desktop brings back a nice screen.

If I click on the forum link while in desktop mode the display comes up extremely small. On my 10" tablet it's about 2 1/4" down the left side in both portrait and landscape mode. Note: This is inconsistent. Sometimes it's like this and sometimes it's huge.

If I click on the forum link on the main page while in mobile mode the screen remains in this huge format and the only thing gestures can do is make it bigger. It won't display smaller. This is what I get whether I'm logged in or not.

All of these tests are done with me clearing cache and cookies between them for a balanced evaluation.

All this screams programming problems. This from someone who has been in the computer business for over 25 years and been a programmer for a good part of it.

I've had wierd resolution issues with this on my tablet, too. And my phone.
One post will be normal size but one of the replies to it will be super small. The next huge.

I was told in the about forum that since I was the only person with the problem the programmers would be too busy to look into it so I guess it's just too bad for us.

Hmm. Just tried it on my p[hone and it looked really good. Shockingly good. Couldn't get it to do what I posted above. I will try it on my tablet.

Mine worked great on my tablet until about a week ago then all this weirdness started. Earlier today it showed the header down to about the post a reply button normally and everything else was huge.

Totally screwed up.
