I am using an older iPhone which can’t be updated above iOS 12.5.5. For some time now I have had problems browsing the Community Site; e.g. the system wouldn’t recognize a visit to a thread with new messages. The ‘new message count’ would stay put, the software wouldn’t remember the last visited post on a revisit to a thread, etc.
Today I have noticed that the Community Site doesn’t visualize on my phone at all. The browser (tried with Safari and Chrome) simply shows a totally blank page. I have deleted the browser cache on the phone, have rebooted the phone, but to no avail.
So my question is, have the site admins recently done any updates on the Discourse software or components used for the Community Site which would explain this? Have maybe other users noticed problems with the Roon Community Site on (older) iOS?
On my laptop and iMac the site shows ok. This is only a problem for older versions of iOS, it seems. And it is very unfortunate, too, because while it may be understandable that some newer versions of apps won’t run on very old iOS releases, this I never have encountered with a web site. From one day to the other, I am not able to access the Community Site on my cell phone anymore.
And as @Mike_O_Neill says, there have been problems for a couple of months, but now it doesn’t load at all. I would love to hear back from the site admins, whoever that may be.
Hi José, same here. The Roon Community site is the only one I have found that wouldn’t work on iOS 12.5.5. I suspect there was some update of the underlying Discourse software which broke compatibility with older iOS.
Tagging @support as no site admin seems to follow this category…
Thanks for bringing this to our attention! We have just upgraded Discourse to the latest version, if you were having issues on iOS 12 with Community, please refresh and let us know if its working now, thanks!
