Hello all,
As seen in a few threads, my phone seems to be struggling to recognize the @ username to reference posters.

I primarily post from phone, iPhone 13, updated iOS 17.5 or whatever. I use google browser.

It used to be no issue to type ‘@ username’ (no space) to tag a poster, but last week or so it hasn’t showed the drop down list of people to select from.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Fine on Google Chrome on the PC and on Android
So, to be clear, I'm not using the Google browser, but Chrome

Testing on iPhone 17.5.x w/ Chrome for @McBride11 - I got the username dropdown just there, though it did initially appear kind of “under” the keyboard so I had to scroll the page.

I think that worked : looked normal? Magician

Edit - ya sometimes a big scroll
I know what you mean - it wasn't working for me the other day for a couple of minutes but it cleared up. I remember hitting "Post Reply" and simply getting an "@ username" instead of the call-out and I had to edit the post a couple of times before I could get it.
