    I follow a forum on RC models. On my laptop I can have 20 odd posts but only 12 or so show on the iPad with no particular pattern for the missing posts. Any reason why?

    Are you using a forum-specific app or Safari and accessing the Forum website?

    Sorry if I have confused things. I am accessing the forum through Safari. I found the site and created a bookmark.

    The iPad identifies itself as a 'mobile' device when using Safari. Some websites can behave strangely if they have not been optimised for such a device. I sometimes use another browser, iCab, which has the option to 'pretend' it's a normal PC browser and that gets rid of the problem.

    There are other browsers too that can do this but Safari, unfortunately, cannot.

    Ditto to using icab. I use that all of the time. No problems.

    Thanks for the info. It looks like I would need to load icab to browse this forum and I am not sure if I want to complicate things to much.

    Thanks again.

    Took the bull by the horns and loaded ICab. Problems now resolved and so much a better browser that I have made it default
