I mentioned this in a comment in #5590, but that issue is primarily about Dominion so I thought it might be buried. In particular I wanted to flag the inability (via mobile) to choose the French interface of Archives Canada.

The Archives Canada issue is similar to part of what was reported in #5590, but in this case, playing with the Chrome element inspector, I think div.row is colliding with div.span12

As mentioned in #5590, it may be easiest to reproduce this (and try to see what's happening) by decreasing the width of the browser window of a non-mobile browser.

Bumping this to high, because making sure that the option to change the application interface language is included is essential before ArchivesCanada goes live.

Tim, FYI - we will be making the language option and some of the others available, but we may not make the login button visible in mobile - while the Bootstrap theme provides some native responsiveness, we have not built nor rigorously tested 2.x for description/digital object upload/administration/etc via mobile - the first goal of our mobile work is to make sure that end users can browse the application.

Thanks again for reporting this - I've reproduced it on my Android (Jelly bean) phone using Dolphin Browser as well.

This actually ties in with general responsive issues in both themes. E.g., if the browser width is reduced to 960px or less, the browse button separates from the search box in the header, the search box occupies the entire width of the header (nearly), and the login/main menu icons are no longer accessible. Screen shot attached. A client has noted similar issues in a custom theme:

The login button does not appear at the top of the page if the screen resolution is <=1280 px wide.

I was using a 24” monitor with a native resolution of 1920x1080, using both Firefox 26.0 and Chrome 32.0; interestingly, the problem didn’t appear in IE 8.0

Addressed the issue with the language links in ArchivesCanada, 1d42da56ad.
I think that the admin bar visibility problems in mobile platform deserves its own ticket.

Contact us, French links, etc are all available on mobile version now. Lots of other things to say about mobile, but going to close this issue for now.
