Updated website on laptop is perfect, on mobile it's all messed up!

Hi all,

I updated my site from RW6 to RW8, the latest version, 8.1.7. On my laptop it looks and works perfectly.
In the simulator it looks good (on most pages), but on my iPhone 8, it’s completely messed up, stacks are missing, buttons don’t show, and size proportions are wrong.
Please take a look on your mobile: https://popenoemethod.com

Some pages are ok, many are not. I’m using the latest Glide theme. “Use responsive layout” is checked for all pages. “Stacked columns” is checked when there’s more than one stack. So many problems. Is there something I’m not doing that I should be? Please advise if you can. I’m not a super tech guy. Thanks in advance! Josh

Well, I figured out the problem, most of it anyway. The browser cache on my phone was full of the old site, and that was screwing it all up. Cleared the cache, and that did the trick. Still have some questions about how the mobile layout is supposed to work in RW, and after I do what tweaking I can, I may be back with a question or two, but for now, disaster averted! :slight_smile:

If you’re going to view/test a site/page on a mobile device then ALWAYS open it in a private window, this way the browser wont cache the page after you close the window.

Private browsing on IOS Safari:

  1. Tap Safari to open it.

  2. Tap the new window icon in the bottom right corner (it looks like two overlapping rectangles).

  3. Tap Private .

  4. Tap the + button to open a new window.

“ALWAYS open it in a private window”
I did not know that Paul :wink:

I use a stack to prompt viewing in landscape on one particular page…

There are some times (a calendar) when it will never look good in portrait.
There are other similar stacks I think.

That’s a great tip, Paul, thanks!
