Can't view spoiler tags on android

Postby Diadem » Sat Sep 01, 2012 9:29 pm UTC

I sometimes browse these forums on my mobile phone. Since yesterday, I noticed that I do not seem to be able to open spoiler tags anymore. They change colour when clicked, as if opened, but nothing else happens.

In the past I never had any problems. I.m not quite sure when it last worked.

Has there been some change to the way the forum handles spoiler tags lately?

Seems most likely to be a browser thing. I use the Dolphin Browser on my phone, and spoilers work fine for me.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Possibly, my phone is certainly not the latest model. But I changed nothing on my end, as far as I'm aware, and it used to work before. So logic dictates that must be due to a change on your end.

Spoiler tags work fine for me. Samsung galaxy s3, ICS stock, stock browser.

what browser are you using? perhaps it auto-updated and the most recent update has a problem with the spoiler tag code?

We've been running the current version of phpBB for a while now, and I'm not aware of any other changes that would affect that functionality.

Are you looking at pages with jsmath on them? Because your phone won't open a spoiler until the jsmath has finished running.
One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision - BR

It turns out my phone had switched off javascript. Not sure how that ended up being off, perhaps I hit the wrong button somewhere, but switching that on again solved it.

I didn't know spoilertags were javascript though.
