Top LDDb buyer/seller here...

Many other members & friends have asked me to speak out on this monstrosity for quite some time.

Curious if this nightmare will ever be solved?
-My laptop just doesn't fit well in my pockets. I have 2 cell phones, 1 a LG & the other a Samsung -both top of the line models...neither work for making offers. I hear the iPhone doesn't work either, according to several members.
(I know a FEW smartphones may work on making offers or counter-offers, but we're talking in the LOW 10 percentile)
We're all on the GO, or busy at work these days etc... Not much time for laptop breaks during the day, especially for something simple as making a best offer.

Julien, Anyway we can get the offer function to be formatted like ebay, where we just punch in the price number...!!?

While I don't care too much about the phone issue I totally agree with making offers to make it easier and rounded number.
This whole percentage thing is very odd and cumbersome.

It would be nice to make a round number offer, every time I have tried to make offers they are off track.
Also what about doing the payments like Discogs??
I don't buy from that site much but just made a purchase yesterday and was able to pay directly from their site into paypal from a link but going
straight to the sellers account.

Would be nice to make things easier on our end if you can make it easier internally.

That's a good question.

Looks like it could be somewhat easily added:

https://www.artodia.com/phpbb-styles/mobile/

Will look into that if it can be a quick win.

Mobile integration isn't fun ... but:


To be tested ASAP.

I personally don’t care if I have to go to my computer to do some LD power buying/selling. Phones are toys so when they frustrate me (constantly) I just keep that in mind. “If I were really serious about what I’m doing right now my computer would be closer”.

I’ve been using this iPhone on this forum for years, btw. It’s not perfect, it never will be because it’s a touch screen toy. I wouldn’t bust my bees fixing this “issue” if I were you, Julien. :)

It took so lon the patch doesn't exist anymore, but after trying 4 or 5 sliders that are touch-screen compatible while not depending on jQuery, I finally got https://www.cssscript.com/clean-mobile-range-slider/ to work on touch screen for best offers.

Before (the same design I wrote 15+ years ago):

Could you give it a try?

Let’s hope this “monstrosity” will be fixed and our collective “nightmare” will end.

I honestly don't know if it's worth your time trying to fix issues related to using phones.
Bigger sites than this have issues (attachments are a common one) and even after some things are "fixed" the same problem can come back, or other problems can arise down the track after changes/updates are made to the site.

It's actually specific to iOS (Mac, iPad, iPhone, etc.).

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41869122/touch-events-within-iframe-are-not-working-on-ios

It should work now. Tested OK on iPhone 8 Chrome and Safari.
