    I know its a WIP still but when reading bhw on my phone, the only times that the signatures appear are when you are reading bhw in landscape mode.

    This will also affect advertising as there are no ads shown in the mobile version so I believe this should be of great importance imho. What do you say @Diamond Damien

    The reason it's showing in landscape is because it would have to be scaled down to fit in portrait, and that would look terrible. I don't know if there's anything to be done about that, as signatures don't have any conditional sizing options as it wasn't designed for advertising, it's just been adapted that way. Good catch, though, we'll see what DD has to say.

    @bz earlier the signature used to open in a new tab/window, now opens in the current window.

    BHW - of course.

    The site design has gone dynamic from fixed, which is why it's different on different screens.

    We took the decision of usability and engagement over increasing $$$ when dropping on screen size. We had to sacrifice some aspects of the site design and ad space (for now) was one of them. As we still show ad's to over 96% of the BHW population (GA last 365 days based on screen size metrics) and we expect visits will grow with increased engagement. It's a real world number we are looking to increase so feel the 4% drop will be more than made up for by increased site visits.

    When you're staying on BHW it opens in the same window - when you're going off BHW it's _blank by default. This is an improvement we tested with the beta's and got positive feedback.
