iOS formatting

  1. Hi,
    I've been creating my WordPress.com blog since 2009. It contains text, images and video materials.
    Recently I've found that the formatting I've carefully set up on my desktop appears differently on my iPad (iPad 1 version 5.1.1).
    The images I've included are selected as medium size and set to be on the left or right of the text with the text wrapped around.
    When I check it on the iPad the images appear bigger relative to the text and the text no longer wraps around because the images are taking up almost the whole width of the line.
    I've taken a lot of care with the appearance of my site and am frustrated by the fact that it looks so poor on a tablet.
    If it was the solution, I'd be interested in using WordPress for iOS but only if I could import all my archive.

    The blog I need help with is artsymbol.wordpress.com.

    This is just to be sure are you running the latest version of the app http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/08/09/wpios-3-1/

  3. As I mentioned in my earlier message, I'm not using the app.
    I'm simply concerned that what I produce on the desktop isn't what appears on the tablet.
    I would use the app if I could import all of my archive into the app version

  5. Hi artsymbol,

    The app is our recommended way to view and work with your blog while using any tablet or mobil device. It maybe a formatting issue with Safari on the tablet, for example. Could you perhaps take some screenshots so I can see some of the specifics?

    Cheers!

  6. Hi zandyring
    I'd love to but I don't know how to attach pictures here
    Thanks

    Upload it to your Media Library, then return here state what the file name is and Staff will examine it.

  8. Hi zandyring
    I've uploaded the two screen shots. One is iPad version and the other is Desktop version.
    The problem is fairly obvious when you compare them. This doesn't happen on the iPhone just the iPad
    I would be interested in using the app version if I could import all my previous work.
    Can I do that?
    Thanks

  9. Hi
    Sorry, I should have given the URL's of the screen shots

    http://artsymbol.wordpress.com/?attachment_id=8884

    and

    http://artsymbol.wordpress.com/?attachment_id=8883

    Regards

  10. Hi there,

    Thanks for these! I'll take a closer look and let you know what I uncover!

  11. Howdy! Thanks for bringing this bug to our attention. We've just made a change that should fix the image resizing problem in ChaosTheory. Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have further questions!

  12. Hi Sixhours
    This seems to have done the trick and II very much appreciate you people at WordPress taking the time to look into this.
    Thanks
