Android App not showing original post, only shows summary post

313 68 November 7, 2017 at 09:36 AM
When viewing on mobile, the first post shown is not the original, first post. Rather, it is a summary post which, on PC, shows up as an abbreviated, or sometimes cleaned up and curated summary post.

This is problematic when the original post includes links to all items specified in the deal, whereas the summary post may only include some.

I've seen some posters provide a link to the original forum thread which allows mobile users to see that first post, but otherwise, I haven't been able to locate a method to see that first post.

Can a link be included to see the OP's post in it's entirety, or can the OP's post simply be included in the first position below the summary post?

Hi spacemanpack, thank you for the feedback! That is a feature that we have on the roadmap. Does having the OP displayed make you use desktop more?

Yes, because while I use mobile when it is convenient or just because, I still find myself going back to desktop to verify the summary post didn't leave anything out. This is especially true for free after rebate posts because I've missed deals because the summary post didn't include all the OP links.

Hey, just wanted to report back on progress.
In this thread in particular, I just wanted to say thank you because this text in the FP summary post alerted me to check the desktop version.

Note, limit one rebate per household. Please refer to the forum thread[link] for all qualifying items

Examples

Putting the word "Examples" in italics was nice. Unfortunately, clicking on the link "thread" didn't seem to work because it just kept reloading the same page on mobile.

But again, this is nice and I just wanted to say thanks.
