Problem with trying to load earlier stories on ilounge homepage from iPad

I was wondering if it is my iPad, or the site? Looking through the main page on ilounge, and tapping previous articles does nothing for some reason. I cannot read any articles except what is on the first page. Anybody else having this issue? I don't have it on any other site.

Can you give some URLs so I can be sure I am looking at the same pages?

I'd like to see if this is universal.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

It's the main lounge home page. I click in All things iPod, iPhone, iPad and Beyond | iLounge. I read the stories scrolling to the bottom and then tap "load earlier stories". Nothing happens, the color turns to gray, nothing loads.

Just tried it on my iPhone 6+ as well and the same thing happens. Screenshot attached.

It appears that Safari does not support all AJAX functionality.

I found a number of articles on this. The page you are referencing uses AJAX to add more content below the spot where you click "Load More Stories".

I can't do much with that as I have no access to that part of the site. I can forward this to an administrator.

Just to bump this thread up a few months later, am I the only one that finds it a little odd that I cannot read all the stories about iPhone and iPad.....on an iPhone or an iPad? Seriously, this is the only blog of any type that I visit which I cannot navigate around....I've been a member for 10 years and used to love this site, now I barely visit because I cannot get past the first few stories. please fix this.

Hi and thanks for the report. We've been upgrading a few back-end components of the site, and as a result haven't really gotten a chance to look at this one yet. It oddly doesn't seem to affect all users, so I haven't tracked down the exact cause, but I have managed to reproduce it in some cases. I've bumped up the priority and will try and see what I can do about fixing or optimizing that chunk of code.

Well, I'm happy to report that after sacrificing a few woodland creatures under the full moon and reading their entrails, the problem seems to have been fixed. Turns out there are some seriously obscure Javascript differences between the iOS version of Safari and the desktop one, but the fixes are pretty much voodoo magic.... Many other reports of folks having similar problems all ended with statements like, "I don't know why this fix worked, but I'm just going to go with it and not question the magic."

At any rate, please check it out and let me know if you encounter any other issues.
