    Ugh, iPad showing mobile version

    My iPhone displays these forums in regular real browser format.. My iPad shows me the mobile forums with no pictures. Can we please get a button at the bottom of the forums that says "go to full site" like many other websites.

    Do you have a setting you can change how the browser identifies itself? My phone defaults to mobile but I can change the "User Agent" to "Desktop". The browser tells the site it's a desktop computer and I get the full site.

    I dont believe so but I'll look, I will say that other sites that typically bounce me to mobile on my phone display as full sites on the iPad just fine, just not this one..

    The problem is simple to identify. You generally have to change your iPad once a month. Unless you are pregnant of course....

    I did some asking around and found out that perhaps these boards need updated.

    I'm still surprised that my iPhone displays full version but not my iPad.. Same operating system, same browser...

    Is it difficult to either update the forums (if that is indeed the problem) or add a "go to full site" button at the bottom? I dont particularly want to manage multiple browsers on my iPad if I don't need to...

    We do want to upgrade the OR software, however we need to make sure that the new version is compatible with our board theme. We also need to consider that the upgrade may cost money, and the installation will cost money. We will upgrade, it's just hard to say when.
