Thread: Switching mobile/full view

    Switching mobile/full view

    I've switched my view on mobile (iPhone, Safari) to the full desktop version. Is there a way to switch back to the mobile view without deleting my cookies?

    I am not sure, but have you tried the Tapatalk app? It works well for interacting on the forum.

    Hi Dudley,

    If you scroll all the way back down on your phone, you'll see this option:

    Open it and select Default Mobile Style. That should get you back to the regular phone look

    Thanks, Kyonin, but the only options available are Default Style and Treeleaf Minimalist. No mobile option.

    Thanks, I have tried it, but I don't think there's a view for "all new posts", or at least not one I could find.

    On Tapatalk I go to Treeleaf Zendo, then find the "unread" bar. It takes a little searching around at first.

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).

    Hey Dudley,

    At the bottom of your page, do you have this option?

    No, and looking at that screenshot, I'm wondering if I'm on the right site at all. I don't see any of those options. I would attach a screenshot but I think trying to figure out how to do that from my phone would drive me to break the first precept (the ninth is already right out).

    Hmm, not sure then. Maybe just clear the cache on your Safari browser .... remember, it too is impermanent. =)

    I figured it out! (I think)

    So there are three different views, two if which we can easily switch back and forth between, one is a little more difficult (and this is the heart of your issue Dudley):

    1. The default vBulletin "mobile" view - this is "mobile responsive", and uses font sizes and such so it is easy to read on mobile, but it has essentially none of the custom Treeleaf elements (logo, FAQ, donation button, etc.):



    2. If you then scroll to the bottom and hit "Full Site", you get the desktop site with the "Treeleaf Minimalist" theme. This is basically the desktop site squeezed into a small viewport and has the custom elements (logo, FAQ, donation button, etc.):



    3. If you then scroll to the bottom again, and select "Default Style" from the dropdown on the bottom left, you get a theme that looks a lot like the mobile responsive default (no Treeleaf logo, but does have FAQ, donation button, etc.):



    You can use the dropdown at the bottom left to switch back and forth between "Treeleaf Minimalist" and "Default Style" (#2 and #3 above), but there is no way to just go back to the mobile responsive default. What I figured out today is that this is because when you select "Full Site", vBulletin sets a cookie in your browser that basically says "I want the desktop version of the site". If you just delete this cookie, the site goes back to the mobile responsive version (#1 above).

    The good news: in Safari on iOS this is easy to delete by going to: Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data:



    The bad news: it will clear your browser history and cookies from ALL your websites (so you'll need to log back in, etc. everywhere).

    Pshew, so Dudley, long story short, try going to: Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data, and see if when you return to Treeleaf, it is the mobile responsive view.

    Gassho,
    Sekishi

    As a novice priest-in-training, this is simply an expression of my opinion. Please take it with a grain of salt.

    Wow, that was an incredibly clear and detailed explanation. Thank you! Are you available for QA work?
    I did clear my cookies and that did restore the mobile view.
