I need some help i can't seem to join any Steam groups anymore - i tired both though the app and website versions but no follow or join buttons for any group - anyone know what is wrong or what i did wrong - thanks
Also when i go into a group i do follow the drop down menu does not always do anything like announcements it does not change but then i go into discussion and then back into announcements then they will come up - anyone know why?
i did like how the groups used to look anyway to change them and remove this drop down menu because like i said it does cause me a lot of problems
how groups look for me when i am not joined but also looks the same with ones i am a member of - https://imgur.com/a/DxWEXfo

Is it a persistent problem (for more than a day) or something just happening in the last couple of hours?
If the latter is true, I would assume some hickup with Steam's servers.
no idea as i only wanted to join another group today and not for a while before
I would assume some problem with Steam and try again in a day. If it is persistent, investigate further.
Weird in my browser (Edge/Opera/Firefox) there are no drop down menu.
And the button for joining is also where it should be?
Do you mean with app and website versions both on your smartphone?
not smart phone i don't use smartphone
would it be possible to show me how yours are like
Left is in Browser.
Right is in Steam Client
Edit: Picture will delete itself in a month.
thanks not seeing it like this - this how until a little while ago it looked but now it looks like
edit: says link contains 18+ but does not it is safe
That is how it looks on my mobile (smartphone browser) by default.
Try clicking on the three bars in the top left corner.
There you should be able to change it to desktop version.
thanks will try this later
on the app or website?
On the website when it looks like this i know 100% that you can change it.
For the Steam Client (PC) on the other hand i do not even know how it is possible that it will look like this. So i can not tell.
i had this issue on the website version but not on the app. Basically, I was somehow using the mobile version on the website, had to use the dropdown and found it in there.
any chance you could show me how your groups look now when you go int one please
How many groups have you joined? Iirc there is a limit and for groups unless something changed. I think 1000?
Chances are it's nothing but steam going crazy or a cache /browser/phone issue but just throwing an extra idea out there
not many maybe less than 20 groups
here is how my groups look when i open ones i am not joined with - https://imgur.com/a/DxWEXfo
it is a safe link with no adult content (it might say it has some but it doesn't)
Yup you're 100% on the mobile version by accident
really looks the same on my desktop app version also - how can i change it back?
use a proper browser
The mobile version can accidentally be set on a desktop browser even if you're not on mobile. The answer according to reddit (the subreddit is private but the google preview showed the answer) is that "You can go to the menu on the left and click view in desktop mode.". The menu should be three lines on top of each other and looks like this:
thanks that has worked great
Click on the menu ( the upper left icon of the 3 lines) and then View desktop website
If you want to change back to mobile view even on desktop, scroll all the way down and there will be a button View mobile website
Hmmm do you have ad block? Maybe somehow an element getting blocked by adblock?
Probably not the issue, but I once blocked an element on a site with uBlock element picker. And because in the code it was connected to an element higher up on the page, it blocked that as well without me knowing. Was on another site than on Steam for me. If you have nothing manually blocked on Steam you can disregard this, probably not the issue. But wanted to mention it just in case.
well i dis abled the ad block on brave and it looks the same on Steam though the desktop app as well
group limit reached ?
no i only joined 8
1) What happens if you open it in Microsoft edge, does it work?
2) have you tried clearing your browsers cache
3) Is your steam client standard, Ie you haven't tried adding an adblocker to it
4) You haven't hit a switch in your browser to only view the mobile version, perchance
it looks and acts the same on the desktop app version

change browser, Brave have a lot of this problems, I remember something similar with HB page some time ago.... using chrome now
i told her to use a "proper" browser but there was just an ? as reponse
must be something from Brave, a use a lot of browser before, safari have problems sometimes, seaMonkey and IE too.
best for me are Firefox (used for years until 2015) chrome (most used now)… Opera runs well, comodoro dragon runs well.
I don't remember another, but tried others for sure.
someone recommended me Vivaldi, but I didn't try it yet.
if I don't remember badly, Brave have some "pay you for using it" with their own "coin/money", maybe is something related to that, have their own ads, or something like that.
I'm using chrome now, even if it's eating ram like a beast, better performance, and, at least for me, it's faster than Firefox nowadays.
