    OT: How to force desktop mode for viewing TF

    Sorry, not sure where to post this: For some reason, all of sudden, TF now displays on my tablet in Mobile Mode, and I can't find a way to force it so that I can view it in Desktop mode (the "Request Desktop Version" in my Samsung browser has no effect). I don't see an option anywhere in the forums to force it to Desktop mode.

    Try changing the Style in the lower left corner of the page (to the left of "Contact Us").

    Unfortunately, that doesn't exist in Mobile mode. Let me get to another machine so I can attach a screenshot.

    I get the same layout when I use Trackforum in Opera. Chrome and Firefox are normal. For what passes as normal around here

    Yeah, that "Mobile Style by Dartho" isn't even one of our options.

    Clicking the link brings me to http://twf.com.au/ which is some forum for a rugby team.

    I had this happen once before on my desktop. I deleted my internet history/browsing data. I've had no problem since.

    I cleared my history and restarted my tablet. That didn't do the trick, but logging out of TF and then logging back in fixed it.

    This just happened to me, when I clicked on an image someone posted in a google search (Clark / Vollstedt thread).

    Interesting - it has TrackForum content, but it's not our ads.

    I've had this happen to me a few times and each time it was using a Google search to view an old thread.

    It's a bummer to fix. I had to delete ALL my internet history and restart the laptop.

    Heck, I'd like to get mobile mode on my phone, but can only get desktop version. Any suggestions?

    So is rugby domed too?

    No, I don’t think they are domed. I think they like to play outdoors...
