Changelog

In the spirit of BETA, here are the latest fixes and changes here at Beernews.org…

KNOWN BUGS TO BE FIXED:

1. Site Speed: Very slow on initial page load – more info here
2. Mobile layout issues still there on iPad in portrait orientation

RECENT FIXES:

12/5:

Fixed a bunch of mobile issues thanks to @vasuvasu
-1. For some iOS devices, content only displays on left 1/3 of screen.
-Note: If someone with iOS access wants to play with the CSS in their browser, I think the primary div needs to be made 100%. I’m not a responsive design expert though.
2. When clicking a link from the Beerpulse Facebook page on a mobile device, if there is any odd character in the url, the result will be a 404 ‘Error Not Found’ page. May be a Facebook bug.
3. When clicking a link from the Beerpulse Facebook page on a mobile device, the WPTouch mobile-friendly theme does not activate. Again, may be a Facebook bug?
4. On the WPTouch theme, images sometimes do not appear in posts.
5. On the WPTouch theme, there is no way to look at ‘beer’ posts (new labels).
6. The advertisements don’t properly fit in their containers on a mobile device.
