I think that must be it, I was viewing the normal desktop version on my ipad. I got the the github from the link in the forum, and that link came up in the ipads safari browser. I've now found a github app, but sad to say it will not install as it informs me that I need IOS 14.0 or later. My ipad air (quite an old version) is at 12.5.5, and it appears that its as up to date as it can be, and a new ipad is required for later versions.Could you please post a screenshot? Is your browser using the mobile or desktop version? (The "right panel" you mention makes it sound like the desktop version)
As my very first ipad, the original one from when it first came out (doing service as a security camera viewer), conked out just last week I was thinking of getting a new one anyway.
