Teaandcrowns here—I’m currently myself on mobile at work with awful internet connection. I’ll try and take a look at some stuff when I get home on my laptop, but I admit I’m not really familiar at all with android os. I will see if there’s anything I can do, though! Theadamantdaughter may very well put it all up on Ao3 for us, so if that works for you with her other threads, that might be the best answer. I’ll try and see if I can’t figure out anything else in the meanwhile.

No worries. I’m not terribly bothered by it. When I saw someone else was having the same issue I thought I’d speak up just to say hey it’s not an isolated event. Although I admit it makes it difficult to catch up on the threads I don’t really mind doing it the hard way (when I find the time) because I’m enjoying them so much

Still, the whole point of the links was for ease of access, so if they’re not doing their job, I want to fix them, or at least provide a working alternative for anyone else having the issue, since it does seem to work for others.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any answers–most of the android stuff I could find was more about how to open links in any app, or how to add links to your mobile tumblr.

Tumblr doesn’t seem to have a different mobile redirect (like m.teaandcrowns.tumblr.com etc) like some sites have, so I can’t even add a second link tailored specifically for mobile users.

Sorry I couldn’t come up with a better answer! I wonder if it’s something with my theme, or a random broken… redirect…, or even if it’s more to do with the android version of the app? From your screenshot, it looked as if the links I have in my description (and the formatting) weren’t working properly, either.

The best thing I can suggest so you don’t have to go digging through our tags is to copy the link (because it’s the direct link embedded in the text) and copy (or select it to open) into a browser outside the mobile app.

I wish I could have fixed it for you and @painting-serenity and anyone else having issues.

Hi there! So I started reading perfect places and I love it! But anytime I try and use the ‘past’ or ‘from the beginning’ buttons they always just lead to the top of your blog and not anything fic related. I don’t know if that’s just me but you might want to check your links just in case!

Hm, that’s really strange. I just checked the links on the most recent ones and they’re working fine for me?

Here’s the beginning, for you, though. And if that still doesn’t work for some reason, there’re links on the side of my blog, or it’s /perfect-places-i (or -ii, respectively) at the end of my url, if it’s easier to cut the middleman and type it manually.

Sorry for the technological hiccup, friend–and thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy it as much as we’re enjoying writing it.

I was having the same problem. To get caught up I had to search the perfect place tag on both blogs

Are you on desktop or mobile? If you right click/hold down on the links, what does the url that comes up say?

@painting-serenity, same questions

I’m on mobile. It happens on both Perfect Places and Villains. Regardless of if I hit past or from beginning, it just takes be to the top of your blog. If I hold down on the link it only ass me if I want to copy it

Are you on an iphone or android? I tested it on mobile safari, ios tumblr app, and had a friend check on chrome on their android and it all checked out.

Does the link provided in the original ask work for you, or are you having the same problem?
