Hello! Happy to say this should be working now. 🎉 There is a link at the bottom of the page if you need to switch between desktop and mobile. Thank you smile

Yay yes it is there now, thank you, and I also now have a bell
What a day eh !! 😂

Thank you. I'm on mobile but I swap to desktop to completely log off/sign out, & back again.

Lisagran Wed 23-Sep-20 16:23:19

Thank you! Off to hide all the Games threads grin

BlueBelle Wed 23-Sep-20 17:02:36

Yes what I m off to do * lisagran* I wish there was an easier way its so long winded
LaraGransnet any easier way to remove threads from your news feed other than changing to the desktop mode and doing one by one back and forth .

Hooray! 👏 Thanks Lara

Oh, that's useful, thank you! Lisasgran and Bluebelle - how do I hide threads?
I have a bell too if that's any good to anyone?

BlueBelle Wed 23-Sep-20 18:45:51

Well it has all actually changed but.what I ve done now is changed to desktop pulled up my newsfeed and on the right it now says unwatch which I ve clicked on but I ve no idea if that will get rid of them permanently or just till someone else plays a turn then change back to mobile

If anyone’s found a better way please let me know they are so annoying if you are not interested in playing Games

Switch to “mobile site”, click on a thread you don’t want to see - at the top of the thread on the right is a red arrow - click on that which will give you a number of options - click on “hide this thread”

Presumably this doesn’t apply to iPads?

BlueBelle Wed 23-Sep-20 22:02:58

No lisagran that doesn’t work at all
I m on an iPad and no red arrows at all
That’s how you used to do it by going on desktop but that arrows gone now so that doesn’t work
Any other ideas ???

Lisagran Wed 23-Sep-20 22:23:53

Switch to mobile, as I’ve just done, and you’ll see the arrows.....

Lisagran Wed 23-Sep-20 22:24:24

(I’m on an iPad)

BlueBelle Wed 23-Sep-20 22:47:30

Sorry lisagran I m on mobile and no arrow we have to change to desktop to get the arrow which is a pain and then seems to only remove it temporarily

JackyB Wed 23-Sep-20 23:57:35

Where is the arrow on the desktop site? I've only ever found it on the mobile site.

BlueBelle Thu 24-Sep-20 06:38:32

I think this depends what tablet you are using
I m on an iPad and there is no arrow on the mobile site however if I change to desktop site it is on the top Right hand side jackieB

Great news! Thanks for sorting it.

I am on my iPhone and can’t find where to change between desktop and mobile. I don’t know which one I am on and the text is too small because of info and adverts on the right hand side.

I know it used to be at the bottom but I can’t see any indicator of desktop/mobile.

I am on desktop at the mo and if I click on Watch Thread there is no option to UNWATCH it. (I too am talking about all the games which fill up the site early in the day). I saw the arrow on mobile phone site but it did not move at all.

Lisagran Thu 24-Sep-20 10:39:46

I think that’s because you’re not ‘signed in’ mary51?

Lisagran Thu 24-Sep-20 10:41:53

Coolgran on my iPhone, it’s right at the bottom under the Gransnet logo

mary51 Thu 24-Sep-20 11:14:43

I've just hidden about 10 games so hope that works.

mary51 Thu 24-Sep-20 11:16:35

Seems to be working!
