On my iPhone, when replying to a thread, the little menu above the yellow that gives options for bold, italic or to link to a website etc has disappeared. I tried to link in the old way and “click here” did show instead of the long link name, but is this just me, or is there a change. Can’t copy and paste so easily

I have the same on an Android phone. Also the second pane that shows the post has gone.

I have never had the Format Option on either of my Samsung phones.

I assume that they are not easily available on the Mobile App for "space" reasons.

In my last posting, when I clicked on the red " post" button. I was given a blank screen, it then gave the option to resend the posting. I declined and had to open TA again to check the posting.

On IOS/Safari it is worse in that you can’t review and correct text - the yellow bit is what you type into so there is no white box to go back to. When I post a white, blank page appears . Please, Techadvisor , sort this out. No little icons above the txt box either.

What is Markdown?

If you wish to add bold or italic characters, add a hyperlink to another website, a heading or a horizontal line, simply use the relevent icons above the text input field.

A preview of your post will appear in the grey box below. If you make a change and you're not happy, simply press the back arrow icon to undo.
