I'm trying to switch to Metallic skin and it works on my laptop but not on my iPhone. What's the deal?

Nope. I use metallic, but it's always been classic on my phone

What doesn't work about it?

They're all fine on android apart from not being able to open spoilers on the mobile specific one.

I am asking what specifically doesn't "work".
Is it exclusively the Metallic skin or skins in general?
What happens when he attempts to change it, does it do nothing, generate an error, refresh on the default skin etc?

I then made comment that skins are fine on my android with the exception of spoiler buttons that you cannot click on.

Yes, on iphone, it automatically reverts to the basic skin

None of the skins work on my iPhone. You switch it to Metallic (for example) and the page reloads and now it says Metallic in the lower left corner but the skin has not changed, it's still the normal black and red.

As an aside, the metallic skin could use some fixing up. Sometimes the page #'s don't show up when you're browsing a forum because it's grey text on a grey background. I don't need lots of fancy skins but it would be cool to have a light skin (i.e. White background) that's done well.

Ok, I will have a look tonight. I just got back into town. I think the real issue is that iPhones are fucking garbage.

You mean like the Default skin?

Why it's working on Android perfectly and not working on iPhone is a little above my head. I emailed Xheliox and Raj to see if they can help.

Thanks for the effort GBF.

Yes

wait, I only just realized what you meant. in my head I have been thinking "default" was the red and black one. You're correct though, the "vB4 default style" is a nice light skin that suits my needs so nevermind on improving the Metallic one.

however the issue of only the black-and-red skin working on iPhones still stands.

Or am I?

I can't fix anything anymore. They took all my superpowers away.

Dark red should be the only skin allowed.

I love that people still love Dark Christmas.

My Christmas skin seems to be the only one that managed to not turn to hot garbage.
