I can't answer any of those questions as I don't use my phone to access CT any more, due to it not showing all (and in many cases, none!) of the posts in a thread.

You are referring to the app, which is no longer supported.

My comments were for those referring to issues when accessing the full site using their phone.

You can use Tapatalk instead of the app.

If it's no longer supported, why not remove it from the App stores?

That has been an ongoing battle with Google. It is not as simple as you might imagine. If you look at the app in the store, you might notice it does not have our company name under it, hence the difficulty removing it.

They will continue to work on that issue.

That being said, this thread is NOT about the app. It is about mobile users accessing the full site rather than using Tapatalk or enhanced mobile view.

Face it - mobile access is hosed, and posting has gone down because of it. Full view, enhanced mobile, Tapatalk, they all have significant problems.

That's not done, because it would screw up every thread you've participated in.

The simple answer is just don't come here any more. Though I'd hate to see that happen. I get a big kick out of looking at your work.

Re: Use Of Mobile Site On CT Has Popups That Hijack Browser


From what I can tell, the issue only happens when trying to view the full site from a mobile device. They are blocking them as quick as they get through.

bytor, have you tried the Tapatalk app to prevent that?

So why is this the only place on the whole interweb that has this problem?

I still get the same pop ups as day one, I don't think they have ever been "blocked".

Unuseable on iPad. Too many popups. This is only site I have a problem with. You need to fix your site. This has been going on far. Too long. I'll check in periodically to see if problems are resolved. Otherwise I'm out.
