:-X That's up there with "get rid of the Shuttle forum section! ;)

It's very popular and there would be riots of we got rid of it. People need help finding the forum section that shows where the discussions on that subject take place.

Looks great in desktop. :P

Yeah, I guess that makes sense. Maybe we could move it to the bottom of the article, so that it pops up at the end of the article on mobile?

I've noticed that issue as well. My solution would be to scrap the "See Also" bar. I don't think it's needed.

Edit: Well, maybe it is useful. Not sure if people use it or not. Is there a way to measure the clicks from it?  :P

Just rename the Shuttle forum section the NASA Historical section and add Mercury Gemini, Apollo et cetera to flesh out the section and rename the current historical thread to general historical.

Question about the mobile website handling of unread topics.

Do you use a cookie on the mobile browser to track last message read for a topic, or is the message number tracked on the server associated with my logged in id?

I often switch back and forth between my iPhone Safari browser and my Windows 10 desktop Chrome browser.  I have NO confidence in the mobile browser ability to position me at the next unread message for a topic, whether last visited via mobile or desktop browser.

This is something I think the <cast your favorite aspersion> Tapatalk application did, but I've been trying to switch off of that and use the mobile website.

Suggestions?  Chrome on iPhone maybe?  Or is there a setting in my profile I've not found ...

So, taking Chris' suggestion that this is the right place to provide my feedback ...

The mobile site doesn't seem to offer something equivalent to the "New" button that the main desktop site offers.

The "Unread Topics" on the desktop site includes a "New" icon that causes a URL like "https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=46644.msg1128440;topicseen#new" to be offered, with the tag ";topic seen#new" in the URL.

The mobile site doesn't seem to offer that, though I'd expect that is what the right arrow would give me on the "Recent Unread Topics" page would give me.  What I generally get there is a url of the sort https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=47004.msg1894247;topicseen#msg1894247 which isn't the same thing.

Help?

I'm getting the same link on the full site under the 'new' button and the mobile site under the right arrow. (and the same result, they are both taking me to the first new post in the thread).

The different url's you are seeing come from two different places, the first one is on a section page, while the 2nd one is on the 'unread' page. In both cases the link is consistent between the full site and the mobile site, as far as I can tell.

But since we are here, I'll mention that if there are no 'new' posts, there doesn't seem to be a way to go the last page of a thread on the mobile site.

Something's going on with the mobile version since the last hour. Mark's been informed.

There might have been a reset (my bad) to your mobile preferences which leads to you getting another "privacy" and/or "cookie" and/or "registration" page. After switching to the mobile theme (bottom of page) everything should be back to normal.

[edit]  I just found another issue which is resolved now.. should work again

Thanks for getting back to me.

Now I'm getting mobile mode on the front page, but not the  forums. Tried refreshing/click-mobile and using a new Chrome tab/click-mobile
