Searching seems to be a problem for me when I'm browsing on my iPad too, but it fixes itself every now and then. I think it depends on the ads that are showing at what time, although I could be completely wrong.
As for the member profiles being squashed, close the sidebar by tapping those two little arrows in grey. The sidebar isn't a biggie, anyway.
Edit: next time post questions like these under Network Support!
Thanks for the reply
I didn't even notice the little arrows but it works so thank you.
Also I wasn't sure where to post, I'll be sure to research before posting, I am guilty of posting in the wrong sub often....my bad, but thanks for the advice, I've not got search to work yet, but I'll keep at it.
