🔧 User Avatar Missing on Discourse Mobile

Since the upgrade I did this afternoon (Sunday 29th) there is a problem with the UI on mobile.

Depending on the theme you have selected you may or may not see this, but I think most of you will experience it.

There is a space that appears where once the avatar of the last poster was displayed.

Can you let me know (sensibly please) if you are seeing the space instead of an avatar?


  • Yes - I see the problem - no avatars are displayed and I see a space instead
  • No - I don’t see the problem - I see avatars just like I always have

I can do a quick fix to remove the space but the avatars still won’t appear. Once I know how widespread it is I can investigate and raise it with the Discourse folks.

I done my vote wrong. I can’t see avatars. I just didn’t realise I couldn’t see them until I looked. After I voted. I think I’ve been Corona’d.

@Goatboy are you on a wide display - tablet?

Can you send a screenshot?

I see avatars to the right of the text if I minimise my screen

That’s on my phone

Sorry, took me a while to close all the snuff porn.


It looks like your phone has a wide enough display to be using the widescreen layout (which doesn’t have the same problem).

If you get a moment, can you close the browser tab and then go into sotonians.com again afresh.

Does the screen look the same as the image you posted?

As an example, this is what a widescreen layout should look like at the moment…

Exactly the same if I pinch it down in size

Ah shit. Me too. Doh

But if I just open it as is it looks like screenshot above

As you can see from this your phone is wide enough to be using the widescreen format so this doesn’t apply to you. Ta.

It looks like everyone on a narrow enough mobile is likely to see the same problem.

I’ll have to take a look tomorrow after work.

Is this a Corona?

Why are you only interested in mobile devices? My laptop, running Firefox, has the same issue. It also doesn’t show the list of frequent contributors to a thread on the right side of the screen.

Same issue or similar?

Screenshot please?

God, it’s always want, want, want with you, isn’t it bach?
