Sooz - a couple of things - maybe. I say "maybe" because I'm not familiar with the Apple environment so could be way off beam.
Firstly, rather than use the app or the browser on a desktop PC, could you navigate to http://www.whodoyouthinkyouaremagazine.com/forum/
using the Browser
on your iPad (Safari is it?) and logon to the forum there? It may not be sized very well for reading on your iPad but the Forum App isn't any better from what you say.
Secondly, your IP address will easily tell the world that you're in NZ - they are, and always have been, allocated in ranges.
Rosemary, it seems to me that you need to get back to your contractors and tell them that their app is simply not fit for purpose
, at least on an iPad Mini - no forum app should have its user content drowned to the extent that Sooz is finding. Whether it's been sized incorrectly or what, I've no idea, but if it drives anyone away, then it's totally failed. Not least because they can't sell advertising space on a departed user. Please note I'm just trying to find some words that will help you deal with the techies at the other end, based on what little I can work out.
If anyone has any better ideas, then I'm sure we'd all be relieved!
