    Do you have any outdated templates?

    It looks fine on my PC and tablet.

    Is this just your iPad or everyone's?
    If just your own then it's more than likely a browser/cache issue.

    I don,t

    In all ipads, but when I refresh the problem is solved. When logging out and logging in the problem appears again.

    Thanks to @Chris Deeming for confirming this - I don't have an iPad so can't help unfortunately.

    Moved to bugs at Mike's request so he can have a look later.

    It breaks when the responsive theme kicks in. Initially loads fine, and then goes all funky.

    I've had a closer look at this via Safari's Web Inspector tool via the iPad to my laptop Safari client.

    As I'm clicking on elements, in the Safari Web Inspector, they are highlighted on the iPad. Sometimes, that highlighting causes the page to display properly.

    Other times, just scrolling up and down seems to bring the display back.

    Elements that are hidden are still there. e.g. the search box. You can still click on the search box even though you can't see it and then the search drop down appears properly.

    My conclusion is, the CSS and HTML must be loading correctly and I certainly can't see any obvious issues. Via the various web inspector tools, I cannot see any events or network activity being triggered when the display starts working.

    I haven't looked at it in great detail, but right now there's nothing obvious causing it.

    Something Mike mentioned, does it happen if you choose a LTR language?

    Chris D XenForo Developer Staff Member

    No. It seems to be RTL specific.

    Just to add. I have an RTL language installed at my website albeit just English but set to RTL), and that always works fine on iPad.

    So, I wouldn't go as far as to say it's a general issue with RTL but more specifically that particular language.

    @macara did you create that language pack yourself or is it in the Resource Manager?

    On my iPad mini XenForo displays and works fine; I haven't encountered any issues. This may be a browser issue WRT RTL. When I visit your site on my mini in landscape mode I get the same display as you do, if I rotate to portrait mode and back your site looks and works fine.

    Not sure what's happening there, but I have no problems on my RTL board (1.2).

    Is that with the same Arabic language pack? Or some other RTL language pack?
  17. Moshe1010

    Moshe1010 Well-Known Member

    No, this is with Hebrew (which is also RTL).
  18. Chris D

    Chris D XenForo Developer Staff Member

    For testing purposes I have installed the aforementioned Arabic language on http://xenmediagallery.com.

    So far I cannot replicate the same issue as the original poster. This is beginning to suggest to me something specific to their environment. Style, add-ons, server software etc.

    i used to have a problem similar to this from the laptop too ,
    i think jack said once it is from java not loaded in the right way.
    this sort of problems used to sort them self by them self
    it stay for some times ( up to two days ) then get it self sort out

    i never figured it out and it had not happen again for long time now without me doing anything !

    Chanks @Chris Deeming.

    I suppose the next step for @macara would be to try it in a default unedited style with all add-ons disabled.
    If the problem isn't reproduced then it is either style or add-on related.
