Main TSP site ‘stuck’ on mobile version with iOS

(1/2) > >>

Bartman01:
When I visit the main site (not the Forum) from my iPad with Safari I am presented the mobile version of the site instead of the desktop version. There is an option in Safari to request the desktop version, but when I choose that it still gives me the mobile version. The site really should be updated to a responsive design based on actual screen size and to honor the desktop version request from the browser.

Mr. Bill:
Agreed.  The main site uses a theme from 2011, and the mobile version looks like something designed for flip-phones.  I'll nudge Jack about updating it.

In the meanwhile, give this a try: Way down at the bottom of the screen (desktop or mobile), there's a little icon for switching modes:


Click that and see what you get.  The software is supposed to remember your choice.

Bartman01:
Thanks, didn’t see that button on the bottom. That does switch it to the desktop site.

Mr. Bill:
Good, I'm glad that worked.

Further news from the "Why did I open my mouth?" department:  Jack has hired me to replace the theme with a modern responsive version.  With luck, it'll be working a lot better fairly soon.  Or I'll be placed in a nice padded room.  We'll see.
