    Is there an update coming to the Android app to make it possible to read spoiler tag content?

    I was wondering if anyone could help please. I've messed something something up on mine and was wondering if anyone has an idea how to resolve it. Using a ZTE Blade.

    When I was checking Gmail, I clicked on a link within it to view a specific forum post. A window popped up saying there was an app to use for AVF I think. As I already had it installed I clicked on cancel. Now the link opens up in the browser and its a nightmare navigating. I'm, assuming it should open up within the AVF app not the browser.

    I have uninstalled the AVF app and put it back on again but no joy. Really annoyed that I clicked on cancel now.

    Any ideas please?

    Ever since the upgrade earlier I now no longer stay logged in on the app.

    Every time I re-open it I have to re log in which never used to be the case.

    Anybody else have the same issues?

    Is there a chance for a fix of the 'Post Prefix' in the android app so you can make posts from your phone...? As you cant select a prefix you cant post. No a big deal but would be a nice touch. In the classifieds that is sorry

    Otherwise thankyou for your hard time and effort. Makes my life easier :thumbsup:

    The classifieds when trying to make a post there. (wanted, for sale etc etc) because you cant enter the type of thread you are trying to post it wont allow it.

    Classified threads can't be started from the app because it didn't contain the rules check-box and auto-footer etc.

    Just a shame no one seems to have an answer as to why some signatures eg mine aren't visible via app despite having asked the question several times.

    I can't see any sigs at all. Period. Makes me think it's by design.

    Can you not turn the signatures On & Off via the Forum Reading Options and Forum Posting Options within the app settings?
    You can on iPhone.

    Sorry I already answered this previously.
    They are turned off because they are irritating and pointless.

    I'm talking about the regular signature as seen in the web format version. I can see your signature in the app version but not mine which features my kit list. Any ideas?

    That's in the normal browser access. I can see Sigs using a browser, but not the app. App settings for sig is whether you use one or not. But that's been disabled anyway.

    I think you looking at posting options not reading options - although I am on iPad I can't see it being that different between the two

    EDIT:

    This is my option page for Reading Options

    AFIACT there are no "read" options on the Android app. Sure there is the sig posting option, but nothing where you can independently turn off "others" sigs whilst reading posts, even though your AVF profile can be set accordingly.

    This is my point. I can see both Mr Incredible's and Brumhee's sigs but not mine! Assuming no one else can see mine either,
