New layout doesn't work on a phone

No paragraphs, and (less important) no smileys

Apart from late evening, the only time I can connect is on a phone.  If I post on a thread by phone, it comes out as a stream of text, without the paragraphs I've put in there to separate comments on what different people have posted.

There are other rather irritating differences too, but that's the biggie.  Is there no user acceptance testing before something on here goes live on here?

Hi Hash

that was fixed before launch, but not uploaded, sorry. It should be live tomorrow.

I appreciate it might not seem so, but we had a long and unusually positive public feedback period before we rolled out these changes - honest! We also did a good deal of internal testing, but when we do miss things we aim to get them fixed as quickly as possible.

Other issues (iPhone 3G):

Repy doesn't get submitted. I've submitted 3 replies so far that have gone missing.

Edit nothing to edit, all text disappears leaving blank box to edit.

Hi both

line breaks and editing are now working from mobile - thanks for your patience. I've posted a list of all the post-launch fixes on this page

Tim: which version of iOS are you using please? You can see it in settings > general > about

Hash, I forgot to say, you can still use text equivalents of smilies from mobiles, and they'll get rendered as graphics. Here they are:

Well, the 'ignore' function seems to be working ok, since RW appear to be ignoring me
