Login broken if scripts turned off


#1

This may be a fringe case, but we’re using Discourse in a low-bandwidth, low tech part of the world…

Accessing the HTML version on non-JS browsers (old phones) has breathed new life into the accessibility of content while away from high speed internet/computers. However, since we are a closed system (requiring login) we can’t figure out how to Log In using the noscript version.

Is there a workaround? On some phones that have JS capability, we can wait for the initial load, login, then turn off the JS… but that seems a bit cumbersome.

Discourse is a JavaScript app, there is no concept of a “JavaScript off” version.

That would be like saying “I need an app on my phone but I need to disable apps from running.”
