Not this one, boss, sorry!  ;)


I get the impression from the above posts that other members switch it over to the desktop version, too.

However, both versions work fine.

I just prefer the normal version, and get a bit peed off when my device decides it'll show me the red version.

Only Me has already explained that one mate......  Your browser or cookies are basically forgetting that you've selected the Desktop version (perhaps you're taking a long time to read a page?!  :D ) and so it resets and you have to click the button at the top again.

Oh, ok... I did see that post, but it's not a language I'm all that familiar with  :worried:

Mine often loads in the mobile view, but refreshing it reverts it to the desktop view. Cookie expiry must be very short, it's not when you close the browser. Of no consequence though.

Hi

I've had it switch to mobile view from desktop whilst going back to the unread list on my iPad.

Cheers

Yes, I prefer the desktop version.
Works better for me than the mobile one.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

What sort of tablet are you on Mick?


Not so much a tablet as a heat seeking suppository! :worried: :worried:

I certainly know that "feeling". Anyway, moving on...............

Personally I'd love it if there were some user option in the forum software along the lines of "always show desktop version regardless of device". It's not too annoying but I've never found a way of getting it to always come up as the desktop version on my phone.

In Safari on Apple devices this ongoing niggle has gone away for me since iOS 13.  In settings under Safari there’s an option to request desktop versions for ALL websites. Although not specific to this forum, it does make it a lot less irritating for me :thumbsup:

iOS 13 has broken ‘tap to zoom’ though, which I use most on this website! Hoping Apple fix that soon, it’s annoying!

You can select from “profiles”  then “look & layout” what themes you want to use and what colour you want the mobile view.... caveat you break it and i have to fix it will
