    I can no longer view my user profile via the mobile site. I can see others profiles just fine. I tried viewing mine on my iPhone and on my iMac (mobile site) and it acts like it doesn't exist. I was able to view it as recently as a couple of weeks ago.

    Would an admin please assist me here?

    Thanks!

    I've confirmed that the problem occurs but I can't find any user that it affects other than you! It's usually nice to be treated as if you're "special" but in this case I don't know what makes it fail for only your account and only in the WAP profile display.

    You might check if your profile privacy settings affect it.

    I checked all the settings in the User CP and in the WAP and there wasn't anything that I could figure would affect it, nor did I make any changes between the time it worked and stopped working.

    I'm no programmer, but I have to wonder if there is something corrupted in the php somewhere...

    If it helps or makes a difference I get the same error when I try to view pdot's profile via the mobile site. So now I'm not the only one.
    Thanks!

    Thanks. That's a good clue, but we still haven't found the secret.

    It's been a while since I've tried to view my mobile profile and I tried it again last night. Lo and behold, it's working again!

    We can't pretend to be brilliant about it. We made a change for another problem and it may have fixed this one too. All's well that ends well.

    Just another note regarding the mobile site. When/if there is an update for it and it's possible to configure, I'd like to see the mobile site mirror the Spy preferences. Meaning when I view Recent Posts on mobile, it will not show any forums that I choose to ignore in the full site Forum Spy.

    I want to add another bug to the mobile site software list. Polls appear only showing the results and doesn't allow you to vote or see it before the results.
    This one is just an example I found and not one that I cared to vote it per se.

    I'd like to add another strange thing I noticed on the mobile site in recent days.

    I could have sworn that there used to be a Report button on posts, but now I don't find it anywhere. Was it removed, or was it never actually there? :confused:

    I just want to keep adding these little things for the day when the mobile site gets updated, that these things can be fixed. :)

    I wish I would have seen this earlier, I've never been able to view my profile in the mobile format - That said I haven't used the mobile format in months, I just use the full site to ensure a consistent experience.

    That's actually Intell's signature. He seems to take much joy out of fooling people with it.

    Well he certainly got me with it. I went ahead and amended my earlier post to remove it.
