Unselected forum hyperlinks are small on mobile

Post by Thunderforge » 18 Apr 2018, 18:26

When browsing the forum on mobile, links that have not been selected are small.

As soon as you tap that link, it gets bigger, often shifting position if it no longer fits next to adjacent items (if the link moves, then you have to tap it again in its new location).

This also happens in forum posts as well, not just the navigation links. Here is an example where I have tapped the first link (and am in the process of being redirected, but did not tap the bottom link.

My guess is that the CSS for mobile is messed up such that unselected hyperlinks have a smaller text size than selected hyperlinks.

Hi,
I've tried to reproduce it on android version of Firefox and Chrome, but "Mark forum read" links have normal size there. Are you using Safari? Could you please check if you see same small links on FF or Chrome on your phone?
best regards,
Lukasz

Yes, I am using Safari (the default iOS browser). I iust tried with Firefox and get the same error. As I recall, all browsers on iOS ate required to use WebKit under the hood, so it’s not surprising that they behave the same way.
