Technical Note on the Site’s Mobile Theme

Which is that for some people there’s a UI bug that puts the “Exit Mobile Version” banner over the “Post” button when you want to leave a comment. I verified it being an issue on Android; I haven’t checked it elsewhere. I’m looking into it to see if I can fix it.
In the meantime, if you experience this bug in mobile, the simplest workaround is to exit the mobile version, and then leave a comment using the non-mobile theme. The non-mobile theme should still format to look legible on phones and tablets, and the comment functionality is not obscured by poor placement.
I’ve just checked and it’s the same issue on my iPhone – so at least it’s a general issue rather than being OS specific .
Partially hidden on Android 10 and Brave browser. Minimizing keyboard uncovers it.
Hmm, not an issue on my Android phone. “Exit mobile version” is a good inch below the “Post Comment” button. I had to scroll down to see it.
I think I recall this happening on my iPhone once but I think I was able to post by turning my phone to landscape mode or some such.
On a totally unrelated topic, two chapters in on Redshirts and the wife already had to ask me why I was laughing at her. I explained that it wasn’t about her.
On my iPhone 12 Pro. No problem here.
I can post if I hit the enter button through all data fields.
I have an Android phone, and the “Exit mobile version” is directly on top of the “Post Comment” button. But I’ve easily been able to comment by exiting the mobile version, and usig the non mobile theme.
Okay, it shows up on my Galaxy S10+. Huh. Except now it isn’t. I don’t understand what the deal is; seems to vary arbitrarily.
I have this problem every time I check. I have a Moto g7 play. Keyboard up, down, doesn’t matter.
