Search feature on mobile

Hi, i am an active user of this site and love it!

Only one thing drives me nuts and that is the search button doesn't work right on my mobile.

I almost never log in on my desktop since i am usually at work while on! Lol

Anyway when i hit the button it opens the search box as it should but i have to select the text box to write anything. When i select that box everything (to do with search) disappears. I can't ever search anything.

I have used the Autoguide app but i dont really like it because you lose all the sig pics and avatars which i like to look at!!!

I guess if there isn't anyway to get it to work right i will just use the app to search but i wanted to ask first and it also might help with some of the repeat questions!!!

Thanks!

None taken. I love mine and I've always had good luck with them! It must be the Autoguide App itself. You can search for something in the search bar and it will return results that are so completely off base, it makes you wonder if it simply does an "I'm Feeling Lucky" search and pulls up random threads.

I'm chiming in and tell you to go @&#* or something... LMAO!!!

It sounds like a problem with the mobile browser not supporting the scripting for the search dropdown. It works fine on my mobile phone as well, so it's likely phone specific, so unless you can change that, not likely there is much we can do on this side. Sorry about that, bud.
