Hi,

 

 

 

Not sure if something changed in the last day or so, however when I now access the forums on my iPad it defaults to Mobile view and there is no longer a link at the bottom to revert to a Desktop view, which works a lot better on an iPad.

 

 

 

Cheers

The link is still there: 

 

 

Worst case visit using this URL to set Geekzone to desktop.

Sorry - wasn't being clear.  You are correct, the link is at the bottom of the Forums page, however when you click on it you are taken back to the GZ homepage, not to the forums page in Desktop View.  When you then click Forums from the GGZ homepage it again reverts to Mobile View so you end up in an endless cycle where you can't get the Forums in Full/Desktop View.

 

Hope that is clearer now.

It seems either your browser is clearing cookies in between. Have you installed an ad blocker, anti-malware with cookies cleaning functionality, or using a new network with filtering perhaps?

looks like I've solved it - it takes clicking on the "share" button and then choosing "request desktop site" to make the iPad default back to full view.
