I've been doing some Google searches from my phone recently and several hits are from the gz forums. 

The problem lies when I try and open one of the search results, it redirects to the mobile forum front page, not the search result forum post. I then have to search for it again. 

Is this a known issue?

Hi, I'm still having this issue. In fact, I don't think it's ever worked properly for me. All of the Geekzone google results redirect back to the Geekzone mobile forum homepage. Currently on iOS 8.3 with Safari.

Is this still a known issue?

Can anyone else reproduce this, or is it just me? I'm on stock iOS so would be surprised if others don't have the same issue...

I just tried using Chrome as iPhone (using an add-on to change user-agent) and my Google searches all returned mobile URLs and all directed to correct pages.

Even if I use Geekzone desktop on your mobile Google still shows the correct mobile page.

And just like that, it is working. I can only assume I struck it unlucky the few times I have tried this the past. All appears to be working as expected now. Cheers.
