iPad/iPhone problems

Post  SFG in Chicago on 4/24/2011, 12:41 pm

I'm certain I have used my iPad to browse and post to the forums in the past with no problem. Today when I came to the site on my iPad it looked completely different. It's just blue & gray, some of the forum titles are missing, there's no place to log on and no way to post a topic or reply. It's pretty much unusable. I double checked I have the URL right. It's the same on the iPhone. I'm away from home so I'm borrowing a computer to post this.

Here's what the forums look like on my iPad:

that's how it always looks on my ipad. i think the forum must use flash in some way on the message board. if I go to the main page, i can see that in the usual green and see the top topics on the left, but if I click any of them, it goes to the gray version. i just use the back button a lot so I can view it the way I'm used to and if I want to reply, I have to go to my computer or use my app that mimics my computers screen.

it's taking you to a MOBILE site...you have to change a setting from what I have gathered that takes you to the actual site and does not re-route you to the for mobile phones site. My android phone was doing that blue gray screen and it sucks....I was able to go tot the settings and make the DEFAULT the website I enter, NOT allowing it to re-route me to the for mobile use site.

Thanks middle mamma! I just assumed it was a flash thing because most mobile sites have a link to go to the full site but this didn't have one. I am used to being annoyed on the iPad with the lack of flash!

So safari has no option to prevent going to mobile sites, so I googled it and found out if I download a different browser (like atomic) it would work.

So I downloaded atomic, then in the settings, I changed the option of it's identity from safari to firefox and now it works! Yay! That was completely annoying and now I'll be on the boards way more often annoying all of you!

Thank you! I changed the settings in my iPad browser to identify itself as firefox & that worked. I have to say the implementation of the mobile version of the site is terrible! Also usually mobile sites show a mobile URL but in this case it didn't, so there wasn't any way to force it back to the full site. Also IME most sites that redirect to mobile sites automatically also have a link to switch back to the full site. Anyway I'm back in business, so thanks again.

Atomic is the browser I use, and that's exactly how I fixed it too.

Sorry for the trouble guys.

I have no control over the mobile version. The forum was created using Forumotion and they are the dictators of those sorts of things. I agree their mobile push leaves much to be desired.

Yeah, the mobile version of this site blows. I downloaded atomic for my iphone to get around it. Thankfully my NookColor tablet lets me act like a PC so i dont have to worry about it.
