Thanks a lot. I don't know if it matters but I have an iPhone.

While I love Cafemom Mobile, is it possible for you to fix the issue with pictures in posts? Only part of the picture shows up and we are not able to scroll over to see the rest or make it smaller. That is the only issue I have so far with Cafemom Mobile.

Hi,


Thank you for the feedback and suggestion for CafeMom Mobile.


I will ask our tech team about this and share your message.  Hopefully, it's something easy to fix:)


Thanks again for your message and for being a member of CafeMom!

Unfortunately this is a result of how the iPhone deals with large images. We'll add it to our mobile "to do" list, but we're not sure if we'll be able to fix it.

Hi,

We try not to lock or delete posts on the group.  If inappropriate replies are made, we'll try to save the post from being locked or deleted by removing the rude replies (personal insults).

If the OP is making personal insults or if the rude replies continue, we may need to lock or delete the post.  We usually try to lock posts rather than delete them so members can go back and see what was said. 

We undeleted your thread about putting wine in a baby bottle and locked it. Now, you can go back and read the replies.

I hope that helps!

Let me see if I could help.

You click on 'Add a Post' from the forum.

All the way in the bottom, you click on 'Add a poll'

Write the question, then click on 'add another option.' Write your options, then click on submit.

Hope it works!
