Liking on a smartphone

I've finally entered the 21st century and taken up a 4G mobile phone.

It's a budget Huawei P8 lite that works very well.

I've successfully logged into MHF, it recognises and remembers me, and I'm able to find my way around the forum. But as yet, I cannot see how to 'Like' or 'Thank' a post. Nor can I see a way to "Copy" an earlier post into any reply I might make.

Any ideas please?

You should be able to select full site John, then you'll have all the twiddly bits.

The full option will be on the left bottom of the page in a drop down menu.

I did say it's a budget phone, Kev.

Using your thoughts, I've had another look and have the following:

1) Inside each post, and to the right of the post number & time posted, there is an empty square box. If I click it, it adds a white tick inside a blue background. No idea what that does.

2) At the top right there are three dots, which when clicked opens a VS box offering "Unsubscribe" "Refresh" and "Settings". The settings option offers thread sort order, online user sorting, Items per page, Theme, Font size, Attachment preview, and the Landing page of either Forms Index or Active Topics.

3) At the top left are three horizontal bars, which when clicked offer (under my user name) Forums index, Subscribed, Participated, Active topics, New posts, Private messages, Who's online, Sign out, and Exit Enhanced Mobile View. (Possibly the last one suggests that I already have the twiddly bits......but they aren't visible to me.)

4) At the bottom of my mobile there are no visible post options.

I've typed this on an old laptop to watch what happens when I click the mobile buttons, but no success yet.

John, if you can bring up the MHF pages it shouldn't matter what phone you have.

I get these

on all of mine and the tablet too.

I recognise the boxes you have attached Kev.

It can only be that the 'like' and 'thank' options are hidden in a sub box as clicking the empty box referred to in post 6 in this thread does bring up various options (including "REPORT POST") so I must be in the right area.

This is what I see John, and this is a cheap phone too, a Xiaomi Redmi 4A

Thanks for attaching the screenshot Kev. I now realise that I am only seeing a "light" version of MHF as I have none of the images and only text and text boxes.

I'm going to have to try harder and find out how to obtain the Full Site on my mobile.

Many thanks for trying to help. Much appreciated.

ps This post was typed on a laptop.
