moderated Proposing a change to Hashtag page display on mobile devices #suggestion


Sandi D <sandi.asgtechie@...>
 

I use an iPad Pro iOS version 14.3. The new display interface the Hastag page on mobile devices is cumbersome. When we had only a few hashtags it wasn't a problem but now we have them spread over 2 pages and heading to a third.

Mobile devices can easily scroll through a page of entries so I am not sure why a listing of #s need to be broken into different pages. That said, if there is reason for having more than one page, could you please consider putting a "next page advancement" button at the top of the screen? It's fine to leave the existing button at the bottom, but adding it to the top as well would be quite helpful. 

When I tap on the link to the Hashtag page and I am looking to #VO, for example, right now I have to scroll down through all the entries before I can get to the "next page" button. Having the advance button at the top, or allowing me a continuous scroll would be nice options.

Actually, I'd rather see those pages follow my "Items Per Page" preference.  It's still one of a few that only use 20 items.

Great suggestion, I didn't think of. I would prefer that over what the page currently offers.

Is this not an issue for others?

I have 193 hashtags on my main group and my preferences are set to 100 items per page. Rather than scroll down and do Next Page I sometimes tap/click on the Name column header to change the sort order. Most items that were on page 2 then show on page 1. I just find it a bit quicker that way.

Thanks Andy for that tip. I do have 100 entries per page already which is likely why the scrolling takes so long to get to the bottom and find the next page arrow. The reverse order you described works great! Once we spill over to that 3rd page it won't capture the one in the middle page, but for now it does what I need. 

Up until this year I have been able to enjoy the desktop website experience on my iPad and it's just frustrating to be handicapped by code that forces me into mobile website displays that make perfect sense when on a 5 inch device. My iPad Pro is the same screen size as my older MacBook Air but my iPad is easier for me to use and has a retina display. I was very content on the desktop view version before the rollout of the mobile-iOS display version and adaping to it has been personally difficult. 

Oh well, I will take the issue to a Mac centric group to see if there is some kind of iPad setting that will let me override the mobile iOS display and instead see the desktop OS version displayed. It was nice to have the choice of which display version I wanted but as in all things time marches on...

Not on an iPh but sometimes have a similar(?) issue of late.

Sizing IO to read a mag is someyimes a.wrong size for inserted or attached info, text ir chart/etc. Must keep a.closer.eye on tbis to make a better report.

I do find 99% of IO tonbe such a tiny font that reordering my settings to allow landscape mode, (which I turn on only for rare videos,) still results in a small font that I can barely stretch enough to read. No font setting changed have altered anything, so far. Makes me feel like I've lost all ability to function is this common ph-venue.
