"Request desktop site [/]" ignored
« on: November 29, 2016, 09:35:01 am »
Hi
Since the version change,  the "Request desktop site [/]"  setting on my (Android/Chrome) browser seems to be ignored by the site,  and pages are rendered in mobile mode.  Is there anything that can be tweaked please?
Mike

This would only happen if surfing in "PRIVATE" mode, where no session cookies are stored on your device or if your device is holding onto old cookies from the previous version
Try this..

Go to history and delete your cookies
Load the site (www.ngaugeforum.co.uk) scroll right to the bottom of the mobile app, select "Go To The Full Site", the full site will load
Then login and select the "stay logged in forever" button

Next time you start the forum it should load into full mode
