Hi all,

I have noticed recently that I am unable to access the main stuff.co.nz desktop site on my android phone.

No matter what browser I use, or what user agent type I select, I am always redirected to i.stuff.co.nz.

Even hitting the "view desktop site" button at the bottom of the page does nothing but reload i.stuff.co.nz.

Is there any way I can get access back to the main site, or am I stuck on the "smart phone" version which has quite a bit of stuff missing.

Cheers

On my Nexus 5 selecting "view desktop site" works correctly, and selecting "view smartphone site" correctly changes back.

If I press "view desktop site":
1) the page goes blank and "www.stuff.co.nz" appears in the address bar
2) the page starts to load
3) the page blinks again before any content is displayed and "i.stuff.co.nz" is shown in the address bar
4) "i.stuff.co.nz" loads correctly

It looks as though the button works correctly, but then some sort of automatic redirection sends me back to i.stuff.

This is the same regardless of if I have the browser set to "request desktop site".

Probably a dodgy cookie.
