Signature not showing in (Mobile view) topic post

Postby maartenl945 » Sat Jan 23, 2021 10:25 am

Hi, my signature does not seem to be displayed in my topic post. Is there any reason for that?

What am I doing wrong ?

Regards,
Maarten

Hi Maarten - it's showing up for me... do you not see the same thing? I've highlighted it in the screenshot below:

You should also see it in the 'Signature' section of your profile user overview page here.

Hey Eddy thanks for replying and that’s good to know. I’m not seeing it myself but maybe that’s because I am viewing the forum on mobile then.

Regards,
Maarten

Ah, yes, indeed that will be the reason. No signatures appear on any posts when viewed on a mobile. In my case not even when I ask Firefox for the desktop version of the site, so I assume it's something to do with the user agent identifier in the HTTP requests :thumbup:

Recommend Tapatalk forum app

My memory is a little hazy, but I do recall the WebDev team deciding to omit the signature on all Forum posts when viewed on a mobile. Why? To shorten the length of topics and reduce scrolling.

That's why you cannot see it on your phone. I and others use Tapatalk forum app to view the SOS Forum on mobile, as it is a nicer experience -- they are a bigger company than us and that app is their life's work.

I would heartily recommend installing it and giving it a try. (You can use it for all forums, of course.)
