Currently it is quite difficult to see the name of the person who created, answered and updated the question and/or answer.

With mobile device such as Jolla phone you can only see "Asked" info bar with date, but no link to question history.

If question is updated, then you get also "Updated" info bar with date/time and link to question history, which will indicate first time who has made the question.

Would it be possible to update the askbot in reduced width view in such way that both asked and updated info bars would show information as follows

Asked by name xx minutes ago with link to history

Updated by name just now

Updated to create the Updated info bar and to see question history with mobile device (less than 800px width)

Just noticed that updating the question with mobile device doesn't offer the Minor edit check box, thus decided to make the updated with laptop/Google Chrome.

Please note question and discussions here: https://together.jolla.com/question/11994/together-zoom/.

I believe all together display problems noted in the forum could be solved easily when zoom would be allowed and items would not be forced any longer to disappear depending on screen width.

The asked/answered/updated elements now show the user info also on small screen.

Yes, using on mobile is much better now. Zooming is working and you can also see who asked the question on mobile.

@Keto Thanks for the updates they are making the updates now much easier.

However the comment box with jolla in portrait orientation is only three rows, which is not much.

Is it possible to set outgrow for the question, answer and comment fields?

Also the scrolling through the text in edit mode is not working making edits with jolla virtually impossible.

by the way when these updates became active as I lost today answer when I updated it?

But minor edit box is no visible, which is good. Personally I would check it by default to avoid the alerts.

But in any case thank you for the implemented changes until now.

Should I close this question as answered now?

Feel free to close if you think that the changes satisfy the topic of this question.

"Minor edit"-box will be probably checked by default for comments in the future, but I haven't exactly decided how the whole comment edit notifications issue will be fixed.

Not being able to scroll the editor box is a separate issue and we'll look into that.

Ok thanks - Now the zoom works and the person info is available so the question is answered in that sense.

However I noticed that with Jolla and portrait orientation the character counter pushes the cancel button under the add comment button and it will not work until the character count is below 100. I checked that even the button position changes again after -99 characters then cancel button works.

Perhaps new question for this issue would best solution.
