This site on an iPad

4-8 weeks ago a technical change appears to have been made to this site. A consequence is that the site is virtually unusable on an iPad unless Javascript is turned off.

This results in the site being much more usable but with niggles such as being unable to use the world icon for posting links and no preview window.

The biggest downside however is issues with 95% of other websites not working properly meaning having to go into settings and switching back on Javacript.

Can anyone suggest a possible remedy or can the techies at PCA please please sort this out.

Is this the full desktop version,you get this by scrolling all the way down to the grey IDG ad and clicking the "click here for full desktop version"or are you viewing the very limited mobile version?

The mobile is fine but it lacks features whereas the desktop version is rubbish.

Mobile version.

Interestingly, having done a very limited experiment, I have found that the full site on the iPhone5 loaded quicker and better than on my iPad2. But of course the screen size meant that the full site was fairly useless.

Quoted: << retep888™ - I don't get any log in problems >>

Woolwell : I just found out that logging into the site isn't possible if << Private Browsing >> is enabled in Safari on iPad but no problem with both Macbook pro & iPhone's Safari on << Private Browsing >>, so I'm puzzled.

I hope someone from PCA picks this up and can give us an idea of when they will try and solve the problems

I cant sign in to PCA just the continuous loop with refresh page and start again.

Is there another way of signing in.

I found a tab to download Firefox but everything I have read says it is not compatible is that still the case.
