No profile or login/logoff access on mobile site Answered

I'm reading Instructables on my phone (Android, Firefox). I had the apparently frequent problem of being unable to post; the solution is to log off and log back in. On the latest mobile site, there is no profile button or menu item or any other way to reach log off. I eventually reached it by "request desktop site" - which is impossibly small for reading, but at least let me get to the profile and log off. The other thing that's inaccessible on mobile is this section - there's no Help, only About and Contact in the footer. I know the mobile site has to be more compact, but adding a menu item for things that usually sit in the header and footer would make it far more useful. Hmm, one more thing - there should be a category here for Website or Instructables or something - not about an instructable, but about the site itself. I'm leaving this uncategorized, since no category really fits. Hmm, ok, I can't - so I'll make it Circuits, which is the least bad fit, I guess.

One way to access the login/logout buttons on the bottom of the menu is to : pull up the menu, flip your phone horizontally == and then vertically again ||. This seems allow you to scroll the full length of the menu and see those bottom options. Just as a Hack fix until this gets fixed fixed.

Thanks for the bug report! The Login and Signup links are just under Publish in the menu, but are hidden behind the bottom browser bar. I'm seeing this on my iPhone as well, but they are only halfway hidden.

Ah. So it needs to be able to scroll up higher, then. Thanks, that's helpful - hopefully useful to the programmers, too.
