Can we get rid of profile links under topic links?

Postby Trail_Blazer71 » Mon Mar 07, 2016 1:13 am

This may seem trivial but it really does happen every time, I accidentally hit the link for a user's profile when I'm trying to view a post. The placement it bad, too many links too close together. And this is on a tablet, on a phone it would be worse. I KNOW I'm hitting the topic, but somehow it clicks the profile so I aim even higher and then it clicks open the profile of the poster of the topic ABOVE the one I'm trying to look at. I have to zoom way in over and over again to view topics in my browser. Guess what feature of this site I've never once wanted to use? Looking at someone's profile.

Try increasing the zoom on your browser.

It's cheaper to fix what you have than to buy someone else's problems.

The next version of the forum software is a little more mobile-friendly, in my opinion.

Just a tip to tell you how I avoid this problem. Try clicking the link between the user name and the subforum link.
