The screen display for Our Poodle Forum is divided into three sections.  

On the left is the Navigation Pane.  

On the right is extra information such as the following:

  • Announcements
  • Welcome page
  • Recent Contributors
  • Related Forum
  • Information about other Delphi Forums

In the middle pane of the screen are the posts for the categories that are selected in the left pane. When you first visit the forum each time, any NEW posts will appear in the middle pane after the announcements .

You can change the posts in the middle pane by selecting different folders, or categories, in the left Navigation Pane.  Some of the selections are:  All, today, 2 days, 7 days, and more.

Here is a list of the different folders, or categories, available in the left Navigation Pane.

  • General Discussion (usually listed first)
  • Performance & Training
  • Introduce Yourself
  • About this Forum
  • Photo Albums
  • Poodle Food & Health
  • Poodle Grooming & Showing
  • Puppy Area
  • Rescue
  • Poodle Breeders
  • Poodle Videos
  • REFERENCE MATERIAL

Here are some screen shots of what will appear in the Navigation Pane depending on what you select:

If you select All and then click on the name of a category, you will see all the posts in that folder, and the indicator under DISCUSSIONS will change to Single Folder.

If you are using a tablet to view the forum, hold the tablet in the landscape, or horizontal, view in order to see all 3 columns.

I am holding the tablet horizontally, thanks !

it seems that I don't have a choice to select the different sections from the arrow.  I need to scroll down and go through every section, containing all posts in it, until I get to the section I want.  This is tedious and I am sure there must be another way.  I will find it !

I tap once in the middle of the words and get a pulldown menu. Then I can select Today or 2 Days Back or Unread. 

Here is an alternative method I may start using myself. 

Use the Advanced Search feature at the top of the middle section. Click on the magnifying glass symbol with the + sign next to it.

You can set all kinds of criteria, one of them is to search From: Today To: Today. The search results appear in the left panel. You just select a message on the left and the post appears in the middle. This works quite well.

This doesn't work, or doesn't seem to work on my ipad either.  It seems that the pull-down menus aren't accessible from this tablet.

There are usually a mobile version and a web version to a forum.  Is it possible that you haven't enabled this option in your setting ?  

As much as I would like to participate, I don't use my computer for this purpose and it is very difficult with my ipad.  There must be something we don't know, because Apple has a big part of the market and I don't see why such a recent platform would not be adapted to it.

Can you for the moment stop trying to use the pulldown menu and just use the Search function to get the messages for today?  I have put in a request with Delphi about this problem.  They might want to know your model of ipad and the version of your operator system.

Here are instructions on using the Search function, which you should be able to do on your ipad:

On my android tablet, I have the option of operating like the tablet was a mobile device (like a phone) or requesting the desktop version of software.  I have looked at this forum using both options and have not really found the forum to look differently either way.  So I do not think there is a mobile version of this forum.

If you have the ability to request the desktop version of the forum, perhaps that would help you.

I know that other people have used an ipad to view this forum. Patk uses her ipad to view this forum.  So I know it is possible.  I am sorry that you are having this problem.

I will get back to you when I heard from the Delphi help desk.

MOBILE VERSION OF FORUM

I asked Delphi Help Desk if there is a mobile version, and they said yes, but that it should switch on automatically with phones.  Otherwise, they said to go to:

 m.delphiforums.com to get the mobile version.

They also told me that ipads should work with this forum.  They will investigate further to see if they can see a problem.

Again, I am glad you are bringing up the problem you are having instead of just giving up and going away.  I am learning a lot from your questions.  

I am impressed by the quick responses that I get from Delphi Help Desk.  They truly want to help us.

So do not give up.  Try the search function or go to  m.delphiforums.com to get the mobile version.

I will get back to you if I learn more from Delphi.

Thanks!
