DC on the smallish screen
« on: July 12, 2018, 03:20 AM »
DC looks good in portrait mode on a smartphone screen:

In landscape mode though, the advantage of the wider screen is negated by the amount of space taken to display the user info:

On my older lower res phone, the user avatar didn't show in landscape mode, so I presume the threshold could be adjusted to cater to higher res small screens?

Second point:
you can see in the first shot that the quoted text is wider than the screen. This is because of a url.
=> Wondering could a line be allowed to break at a "/"
If so, would allow longer urls to wrap. Or that the url be shortened to page width by just showing dots in the mid...dle of the url?

I will post a link here to see if that is 'shortened', and if the problem is just links in quoted text:

The link is shortened, but is still wider than the screen.
EDIT//
and is quoted shortened, but again, still wider than the screen.

Thanks for the report -- these are things I think I should be able to fix pretty easily.
