Hi I got a small problem.

I'm on my phone about 50% of the time I'm here. I use the Quick Reply box because obviously.

I dont know of its my phone or the browser or the site or what, but every time the Quick Reply box pops up, about a quarter of it is cut off from the screen on the right side. It makes it so I cant see the far right side of my posts. Even turning my phone sideways does nothing.

I also can't move the box. Putting my finger on it and trying to move it does nothing but highlight text.

If anyone knows whats causing this or how to fix it that would be great.

That happens to me too.  I disable the Quick Reply (Options > Posting > Enable Quick Reply dialog) on my phone because it is worse than useless.


Yeah, this has been a thing needing fixing for so long. I've been crazy busy lately, but I'll see what I can do.


Yeah I specifically dont want to disable it


take your time my dude


just a humble recommendation,

I don't use the quick reply dialog box because the regular interface doesn't have this issue and I'm on fone most of the time.

Whatever reasons you prefer the QR dialog box, hopefully you can have an easier time using the regular interface until the QR can be improved.



even though i said twice i specifically want to use the QR

but thanks


plus it should be fixed anyways


Oh... Me too, this bugs me too :(

I've looked into this, and I think changing the
$("#quick-reply textarea")
will solve the problem.  (The issue seems to be that
is less wide than its child table.)

Here's a userscript can be used to test this.  It works for me with GreaseMonkey in mobile Firefox.

// ==UserScript==
// @name         Ponyville quickreply fix
// @namespace    http://tampermonkey.net/
// @version      2019-05-30-2245
// @match        http://ponyville.us/*
// @grant        none
// ==/UserScript==

(function() {
   'use strict';
   function repeat_periodically(fn_callback, period) {
       setTimeout(function() {
           repeat_periodically(fn_callback, period);
       }, period);
   repeat_periodically(function() {
       var qr_textarea = document.querySelector("#quick-reply textarea");
       if (qr_textarea) {
           qr_textarea.style.minWidth = "300px";
   }, 500);

Maybe when Thorax-senpai has some time, he can try changing line 738 of
to replace "360px" with "300px" and see if that fixes it on mobile?

#quick-reply textarea {
   width: 100%;
   min-width: 360px; 300px;


I did do this btw, you may need to clear phone cache if it's not immediately apparent.

Still could be improved a lot, but at least the box is on the screen.

Sigh, I wish I had more time, I'll be honest that I haven't had much motivation for working on the site of late. The codebase is really kinda gross tbh!

thanks much Thorax. It works perfectly now. I appreciate it.


How major a project would it be to replace the code base?

You can only untangle spaghetti for so long.


Jeez, I don't want to think about it. I'd probably just find a newer or better opensource chan codebase and migrate to that if it came to it.

...well... Zeke's working on something for us. Maybe we should be early adopters. i had no idea t+3 software was so bad. ....i cannot even remember how Foreground and i picked it.

If i was involved, it was probably something like "oh, this one's popular!"


Gochan still has a long ways to go before it reaches feature parity with the variant of Tinyboard that we're using now.

I was only trying to scare you.

(Oops sorry humor)
