Mobile site buttons are resizing themselves after months of being set. They look very strange and some of the words are running outside the buttons themselves.  I keep going in and trying to put them back to their correct look, but they just go back - and randomly my site is -  www.womensclubglenridge.com

PLEASE - if you or your mobile site admins change something - you need to inform us all.  Like with Captcha - that messed up many of my pages.  Since you do not have a way to build a form, I have to use your Contact form for every event that needs to keep track of participants.. and for contact in general ... I had at least SIX pages messed up by that silly Captcha.. submit buttons covered... footer sections partially covered.. it was a mess

Maybe things should not change retroactively.  Like.. I could have gotten a message telling me the Captcha was now an option I could go back and put in... not just PUT IT IN!!!!

How about a section... blog or something to the mywebsites.action page that tells of all the things that have been added and is updated.  If I made a website last summer.. please tell me all the changes and new options you have added.

I will pass this idea on to the management team. I know the captcha was added as a hotfix, as too many spam messages were being submit, mostly by bots. We had to implement it quickly to protect the system from being flagged.

And when you fix it, it reverts to the previous, messed up version?

This morning I quickly had to change one of our events descriptions to Sold Out.  I published without checking EVERY button on the website.  When i looked on my phone there were multiple problems on my home page AGAIN (i fix them over, and over.  the attached is a screen shot from my Samsung S7 ... I will republish so you will probably not see this.  this came at a very bad time... while we are only 300 members we are having a three big fundraisers (dance, doll tea and house tour)... so there are MANY outsiders looking at the website.. which now looks crazy

I keep on enlarging the Contact Us button both by just expanding the button and also by using the Height in advance edit of the button.  Looks fine, publish.. looks funny... go back in and it is messed up again.. over and over and over.  this is happening to my other buttons as well.  they are shrinking down to just enough to accommodate the text.  I assume there is a new, required way to define the size, but I don't know what that is.

The section does not appear to maintain that increased size. If you increase the section in the mobile editor and place an empty text box at the bottom of the section, it should hold its size. I am reporting this to the development team

Thank you, I will try that.  My RSVP & Info buttons are also changing on the home and Event page.  I always had them with a more capsule shape ...lots of space around the words.  Now they down size to just accommodate the wording.  Since tomorrow I will be down to 2 events to advertise, I may just delete these buttons and re-create.  Maybe that will solve the problem.  I appreciate your help.  As I've said before, I am a volunteer so when I set something up and then it changes months later, I don't know how to determine what is going wrong.

nope.. put a blank text box under, and still messed up.  Then I added a totally new, unlinked button and it resized itself upon publishing.  I am using a Macbook air & Chrome to do my edits.  My phone is a Samsung s7 (not 6).   Thanks

Has the site been published since you noticed this? While it shows badly in the mobile preview, it looks fine on my phone. If you haven't published please don't. I have reported the issue to the developers.
