Question issues with android browsing / tapatalk

trying to find a good way to use this site via my android tablets.

BUT ,
if i use the built in chrome/ silk browsers,then the forum search facility is not usable - it is not possible to type anything into the dropdown box before it immediately closes.
Other dropdown boxes are very small and tricky to use, even on a 9 inch tablet.

If I use ( android) tapatalk - that app seem to ignore my set preferences for the forums I am not interested in e.g. the non english ones, so its UNREAD tab shows everything- and there are various other annoyances e.g. slow loading, needs multiple attempts to mark all as read,

so is there a fully functional mobile interface - it seems to me that a site for mobile reading should have one ???

The search does work. It's not closing, scroll all the way to the right and you will find a box just sitting there waiting for you. I use Chrome when searching and modding but Tapatalk for everything else.

Are you using the standard site, or the mobile one? (http://mobileread.mobi)?

HarryT,
I use the standard Mobileread on Chrome on my tablet.
I never have problems posting or searching.

I am using standard site ,android tablet, chrome browser.
The main search box is ok. It is "search this forum " that is not working. That opens a text box but as soon as I tap into it, to bring up touch keyboard, it closes.
As for mobile version of site, usually the site realises it's dealing with a mobile device and serves the mobile version by default ?. My android browser is synced to my PC browser for bookmarks etc, via my Google account
Update , search this forum works ok on mobile site but that is such an unpleasant basic layout, on a ten inch tablet. I would rather use the main site

Screenshot. I cannot type in the search box that has appeared below search this forum. Same behaviour with search this thread, the box closes when I try to use it.

Hmm, seems there is a workaround, I can tap the advanced search link option below the text box and that way get to a screen hat I can type on.
I still think the basic search box is broken on android chrome though

It's not broken just not supported. Chrome is like that though the last couple of updates have made sites harder to navigate. I also use the advanced link on my tablet but my phone has a much older version of chrome and it works like it's suppose to.

I hadn't even noticed the search with the drop down arrow before.
Yes, it disappears.
I just found a work around.
Long press on that search and open in a new window.

thanks for the confirmation - I had not thought of trying long press- but that is often the case with me and android UI ! - will try it thanks.

Yeah, it doesn't work on my tablet either (with Chrome). I guess I never noticed because I never use anything but the advanced search.
