    The screen has always been round but recently it has been square. Weird.
    What would cause that?

    Rounded corners I mean.

    So this is an IPF App question/issue? Not a hacking one?


    My corners are round ~ looks normal to me on my computer.

    I put it here because I think a tweak I have may have caused it.

    I am not sure though. :)



    That cat looks evil. :D

    Just noticed it myself. IDK if it's always or never been like that though.

    Hmm, it's still square to me. Maybe it's just the Safari iOS client doing this. Try checking it out on YOUR iPad, SweetPoison.

    Ok, just a guess, but I think it's the right answer.

    The corners are always square, more or less. Using CSS is is possible to create background images for each page element. The usual background element for the head has the top corners colored black, so that they look rounded. If the admins are fiddling with the site, or some minor glitch keeps that background from loading it would default to the background color (not image) and the corners would look square again. It's confusing because the background image and the default color are almost identical.

    If you look lower at the main page element you notice that it's corners appear rounded too, until you look very, very close. They are actually pointed. You can see this because the gray is not quite a perfect match for the boarder background, which is textured, making it impossible for a single color to completely blend in.


    Umm, never mind. Just realized it's the Safari header that is changing. So it would be a glitch in Safari, not the page. Same theory though, sort of, without the CSS and involving arcane objects and resources that I don't' really understand.

    The theory, or that I I'd made a boo boo. :D

    Played around a bit on a hunch. Still don't' know if this is what is happening, but;

    If you use the accessibility zoom feature it is possible to duplicate this. Very fiddly and I could only do it in portrait (landscape was too hard to adjust), but you can zoom just enough to crop the corners while still keeping all the status bar visible. I you had somehow accidentally gotten the zoom set to this barely two to four pixels enlarged view, then every time you accidentally did a double three finger tap you'd go in and out of this view.

    Lol, what? Even I didn't understand that. But at least we figured out the problem now.

    I am jail broken so I thought it was a tweak doing it.
