I do have the anandtech bar which was originally on the left is now on the top right obscuring
the PM icon as well as the notification icon.

I
Try zooming in and out. That's totally borked for me.
I can zoom in and out but it's now hard to align the page to fit the screen size. The black anandtech logo is sitting in the middle right of the page as I type.

Same here but it is getting better.
Seems like it doesn’t divert to the mobile site. Desktop site on a mobile screen is wonky.

It's not the desktop site either, enabling desktop mode and you'll see all the side bars you get on desktop.

I hardly use smartphone to login/view anandtech forum, but Brave mobile browser seems working properly for me.

Brave is borked for me. Zoom isn't working and dragging the screen to the left has weird results.

No problem using old Samsung DUOS smartphone. Zooming and dragging to the left worked without problem.
Probably because of its low resolution (720x1280) ?

I fix the problem the following way.....
1. In the browser, pick the option to display Desktop view.
*Problem solved*.

Viewing picture in the forum seems broken to me as well. Tapping them zooms them to be bigger than the screen with no way of getting the entire picture in view.

Anandtech forum admins/tech support never once responded or discussed openly to any issue raised by users.

You can't expect anything being fixed in a timely manner. Even it's fixed eventually it usually take months.

It's really frustrating.

It's just odd that it started out of the blue. Like one day it worked fine, and then it changed the mobile website layout the next.

No forum update, no outage that I saw, just refreshed the page and it got all wonky.

I think it's some fancy javascript being updated and it got screwed up.

It's pretty easy nowadays to just update one javascript UI file on the server and it totally changes how it looks on the client side,
no need to update the whole forum software,
it's not a service anymore because almost everything executes in client's browser.
