Using the desktop site on a mobile browser

I use iOS Safari to browse the web and for the first time today when I load the page the mobile site came up. Thing is, I'm not so fond of the mobile style as it takes away some of the features (e.g. chatbox), and when I try to load the desktop site it redirects me to the mobile site. Is there anything that can be done to get around this for the iOS and Android users who may not prefer the mobile site ?

Yep... I configured my Thunderbolt to only use the desktop to view all websites since I have no reason to use the mobile versions. I also set up my phone to use 4G only so the desktop view makes a lot more sense with such a fast connection. You have an iPhone though so I don't know where to go. In my phone, when I go to the web, I go to the menu options and then go to "more" and then "settings" and there's an option there to disable the mobile view. Start with that if you have that set up.

So...anything to resolve this issue yet?

 

You'd be better off sending Harry a PM about it. I only know what to do for non-Safari devices.

Is there a way to see the full site on an iPhone without switching browsers?

Nope because there's no way to change the iPhone's user agent string. (unless you jailbreak)

O damn. That browser you posted is it any good?

I couldn't tell you (I don't own any Apple devices). I just looked for one that you could change the user agent on.

I used it for all of about 30 seconds before deleting it. I'd rather use the mobile site then that browser.

Unless you have a crappy cell phone, quite frankly the normal site should work just fine. I have used the regular site with my Thunderbolt without any hiccups. :cool:

I totally disabled the mobile site until I can get the issue with the subdomain resolved.
Great, because I originally could only get the mobile site (G1 Phone); then, after you did something, I could get the regular site, but a few weeks ago, I started being able to only get the mobile site again. Now, I see the regular site again.

You can now select the "Mobile Version" of this forum on the footer of the site. You can then switch back to the "Full Version" of the forum on the header of the mobile version. This way seems to be the most practical to use. Enjoy!
