Tables with 'phone' style have gone away!

Unread post by Mark Wilsdorf » Tue Jan 14, 2020 12:05 am

I've been maintaining a Web site using using H&M and PP skins for a good while, including the desk_tablet and phone table styles to show some content differently on those devices.

Suddenly none of the phone-styled tables are now visible when the site is viewed via phone. (I don't know when it happened, because I don't always test minor site updates by viewing on a phone).

I've tested the site using several different browsers (Chrome, Vivaldi, Brave) and it behaves the same way on all. Using an Android ver. 9 phone.

Also, I've set up a test page with minimal content: 4 one-row tables with only text and or text/graphics as content (2 tables for phone, and 2 for desk_tablet), and even on this simple page the 2 phone tables do not appear when viewed on a phone, while the 2 desk_tablet tables show up fine in a desktop browser. The page is here: http://www.goflagship.com/test2.html

I have not tweaked the skin for a long, long time, (not since Feb. 2018) so I don't think this is due to any changes I might have made.

Looks like some failure to detect the phone environment...what should I check?

Hi Mark,

Thanks for posting this. It is a very old bug that has never been noticed before. It's related to the xTables feature. To fix it, edit the hmwebhelp_main_phone.css file in the baggage and locate these lines:

Code: Select all

 /* Responsive xTables Styles */
div.xtable_datablock {
	width: 100%;
	display: none;
	margin-bottom: 0.5rem;
	}
tr.phone {
	display: none;
	}
Change the tr.phone { line to table.xResponsive tr.phone { so that it looks like this:

Code: Select all

 /* Responsive xTables Styles */
div.xtable_datablock {
	width: 100%;
	display: none;
	margin-bottom: 0.5rem;
	}
table.xResponsive tr.phone {
	display: none;
	}
That will fix it.

Thanks Tim, but that didn't change anything.

Hi Mark,

You probably didn't clear your browser cache. 8)

Yeah...I had refreshed the pages but I guess I was just refreshing them from the cache!

As always Tim, thanks for your years and years of excellent help & support. It's one of the things that keeps H&M a cut above the competition.

I've never posted a problem which you folks have been unable to solve/fix.

Hi Mark,

You're very welcome! We originally created Help+Manual for ourselves and so we try to provide the support we'd like to get while using it. We hope it shows. 8)
