Bugs on the mobile version of the site

Postby NeatNit » Sat Feb 10, 2018 8:41 am

I'm using the word "bugs" loosely, as these are just bad design mostly.

The first issue, this one is super annoying - comics that link to Soonish like this one make it impractical to read the title text. Normally you tap the comic to view the title text, but here tapping the comic also takes you to the Soonish page, giving you at best a few seconds to see the title text before the page loads.

The second bug just happened to me for the first time today, it seems you added more ads, now the X button for the bottom-of-the-screen ad doesn't work anymore, because there's another ad right on top of it.

It just keeps getting worse. The title text that pops up when you tap the image is centered off-screen, so you can't read the text. The problem persists in horizontal mode. The usual press-and-hold method of reading the title text has been disabled. And smbc-comics.com doesn't accept requests to display in desktop mode anymore, so you can't even get around these problems that way.

It's just one shitty design decision after another. Hell, now even the desktop version of the site has overlaying ads that obstruct your view of the comic. It's like Zach's doing his damnedest to make his comic unreadable and his site unusable.

I gotta tell you, I'm not getting the issues you described.
