All of a sudden when I hit "comments' it just scrolls me to the black site summary banner at the bottom of the page.
I'm finding things difficult to read on my mobile. I don't know if I'm alone in that I access ToffeeWeb 99% of the time on my phone. I thought tablets were a dieing market?
I also was given the option to post a comment as part of the editorial team - which I took! Presumably just a glitch in the deployment.
I'm on a Samsung S10 using Chrome if it helps with any of the above.
Good work on linking with the Blue Room. My regular go to Everton podcast. And I'll certainly become a patron - I'd never noticed that option before.

Same thing if I hit “commentsâ€ it takes me to the very bottom of the website and I have to scroll up for quite a while to find the actual comments.

But well done Lyndon. ToffeeWeb is an important part of the 'Everton community' and being someone who hasn't Lived in Liverpool for 12+ years, is my main contact with fellow blues. You guys do a fantastic job and ToffeeWeb will forever be one of the first sites I enter whenever there is a free moment in the day. I've looked around other fan websites (usually when looking for fans views on opposition or a linked player) and ToffeeWeb web wins hands down in terms of usability, article quality and thus, quality of debate.
So more than happy to become a 'ToffeeWeb Patron' and help keep it alive.*
*Edit: when clicking on the 'sign up' link, it takes to a 'page not found'. So something to look into.

I guess I'll get used to the layout.

Alan (2), you shouldn't be seeing a strip down the left (a black one, I assume?) so let me know if it keeps happening even after you've reloaded the page a few or times or tried to browse around the site a bit.
Ernie, Fran, when you say you're having trouble reading the site, can you be more specific? It shouldn't look all that different, particularly on a phone.
I have an old Samsung Galaxy test phone and it initially displayed strangely after cut things over earlier but it quickly righted itself. You can send screenshots to that email address above in the OP if it helps.
I just realised the Edit button on Comments is completely broken for the time being.

I don't think the formatting within comments are working either. Eg italics, which I just tried to put in italics.
9 Posted 03/10/2020 at 08:01:52
On the plus side, the button bar along the top now works on my 9.0 'phone, which it hasn't done for a couple of years!

I access TW via my iPhone. Very disconcerting this morning my favourite site after pornhub has been hacked.

when composing comments, the text modifiers are not working (bold, italic, underline).
For some months there's been no EDIT button after posting comments, for me at least. Could this be fixed?

By the way I'm moving into the 21st. century and in the process of getting a bank card, who do I send my contribution to ToffeeWeb?
17 Posted 03/10/2020 at 11:05:47
Is TW full time these days?

Only joking by the way, keep this brilliant site going, not only does it keep us up on all things Everton, but allows us to communicate with fellow Blues across the World, long may it continue!
20 Posted 03/10/2020 at 14:07:10
Otherwise a really sharp improvement

Sorry to say, Lyndon, but at my 3 score and 10 I'm almost allergic to change and my daily couple of hours on ToffeeWeb may be drawing to a close. However, I shall just be out on the window ledge for five minutes thinking about it.

Many will have noticed the site and especially the Live Forum locking up toward the end of the last two games. I can only assume this is overload in terms of traffic, but is there something else we can do to handle the peak demand?
23 Posted 03/10/2020 at 17:26:49
Yes, Michael - stop Everton's scoring and winning spree!
24 Posted 03/10/2020 at 19:18:44
It is fantastic. Much, much better in my opinion.
Best fan site on the web keeps improving.
And yes, the Live Forum crashed on me two games in a row. My poor wife had to listen to me comment on every little thing. Save my wife, please, and look into the crashing of the Live Forum.

Michael and Lyndon, I thought my ToffeeWeb Patron thing renewed automatically. If it hasn't I will renew now. Unlike Dave, I have had a bank card for weeks.

Also the night you came over from Belfast to meet and greet Mike ( Gaynes) before a Derby game, you were not going to the game, on the Sunday, but to meet Mike and a few more Bluenoses, going home to Belfast the next day, I thought that was brilliant.
As for me getting a bank card, it's like waiting for a major operation, I hate change and don't trust these bank cards or anything modern, and the bank has phoned me recently to say my appointment, to sort it out, has been delayed because of the latest rules with the virus, does my bleedin' head in, wait â€˜â€˜til they bring the cashless society in, I'll finish up in a straight jacket!! See you soon Andy, hopefully.

I was looking at some LFC fansites today (just because its was HILARIOUS) and I was struck about how awful their sites are compared to ToffeeWeb. Great job
29 Posted 07/10/2020 at 19:02:39
As a case in point, the lack of class displayed by the headline of the article criticising Theo Walcott contrasts greatly with his own positive comments about Everton FC. I'm not saying that players are above criticism, but one would be forgiven for thinking this was a Liverpool or anti-Everton site looking at that headline. We on ToffeeWeb should have higher standards. This negativity just forces people away from the site.

Two wishes for me would be the ability to like other peoples' comments and it would be neat if each user, could see/find their own posted comments.
Keep up the great work!

35 Posted 15/10/2020 at 15:12:00
It's a great site though, rare to see the standard. It's a big commitment for sure, so thanks again.
36 Posted 15/10/2020 at 15:19:09
I'm sure it's age, but I'll actually post things, forget which article I've posted under, and then can't find the damn thing. It always concerns me if someone's replied and I look rude by not replying to the reply if warranted - if you get my meaning.
The edit button is like a waiter at a bad restaurant, it comes and goes as it pleases.
These are minor things. The site is superb. All these suggestions and notes to improve are simply the cherry on top of the sundae.
