iPhone view blowing up

Browsing this morning, chowhound thread pages expand to show only a fraction of the page on the screen and cannot be shrunk to fit. This is happening about every 3 or 4 pages and the only way to get out of it is to move to another page.

ETA: this also affects the message board indices.

  1. Not happening on my iPhone 5. Visited a few different boards and all is as usual.

      I'm on 4S and have not upgraded to the new iOS.

      This popped up instead of the thread I clicked,

    2. Still happening with the new design though with less frequency. When the big font size appears, clicking on any thread today goes to
      and renders a 404 error message.

      1. Personally I have given up trying to view the new format on my I-phone 4s.

        1. Hi Melanie.

          We've been unable to reproduce this but will keep trying. The next time it happens, if you could provide more details (e.g., what thread you tried to click on, if you were logged in or out, what you'd clicked on just before that) it might help us track down the issue.

          Thanks, and happy new year!

            Still blowing up in size occasionally, the threads are not redirecting to either of the urls I posted earlier as of a few days ago.
