problems opening on tablet
« on: December 19, 2012, 07:27 AM »
Hi there, any suggestions for opening up this site on the samsung 2.7 tablet. Not opening up for me. Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone know why it's giving me problems? Does anyone know of a solution? Help!!!

When you try to load the page does it look like its loaded but the page is just blank?  That is a problem I am having on a new 7" tablet I just bought.

Other pages load just fine but not PTS.  I downloaded a couple of other browsers from the App store.  I finally got the page to open in FireFox but then when I went to other pages or links I got the blank screen again.  I then tried Opera mini and after playing with the settings a bit I finally got the page to come up and links to work.

Um.. Guys?  We need to know more than "It just don't work"   That's sort of like saying "The white car at the Superbowl won't start"  ok.. do you know how many white cars there would be at the Superbowl?

What Browser are you using, what edition is it and do you have add ons might help

Im havinG this problem as well. Everything was working fine but then suddenly it stopped working sometime yesterday evening. And Philo, the sarcasm isnt aporeciiated, i know youre trying to help but please go about it in a better manner considering you're a moderator. And to answer the question: im on an iPad 3, using safari, and on ios 5.1.1. I have not made any changes that would suddenly cause the site to stop working, its literally a blank page. Ive tried restarting, clearing cache cookies and histories to no avail. Currently im using skyfire which is a different web browsing app. I dont like this because its slow. And the snowflakes falling on the homepage make it slower.

Yep, seeing this one: I'm on Samsung Galaxy Tab. I used Mozilla for my Browser. the other night it was working perfectly well even though we got the snowflakes and all that. Then next day, can't go online using it.

Apparently this is a known issue with Tablets. I found these "fixes" off site:

  • The problem could be the browser. Try an alternative browser like Dolphin HD to see if you're experiencing the same problem.
  • Are you using Quick Controls? That would explain the blank white screen because it displays without any tabs if there is not a page preloaded. Use the thumb control to open a new tab or select a bookmark.
  • I have AdBlock running, may have something to do with it.
  • Also note that Android versions below 2.2 won't play Flash.

I know Flash did update recently and personally hate Flash. I've had problems with other browsers and Flash before.

It wasn't sarcasm.  It was intended on being a joking comparison of how little information was given about what was wrong.  It is equilvent.  Saying  tablet and white  car says the same thing and leaves the person trying to solve the problem puzzled. 

 Sorry. that you did not understand that.

Since I have created a problem I will bow out of this thread.,

Virtually every website uses Flash, so I doubt you don't have it.

I think so. I think it's when Mr Admin disabled something. I remember it when every thread I went to, there's snow flakes, but now there's none. Just the main page. When Mr A, did that, I can't go to PTS via tablet. :(

the ios software used for the ipad and apple devices in general is different than whats used on comps and anderoids. apple is at war with flash, theyll never use flash.
