    Default Non-mobile version

    I opened the site in my iPhone today to see we have a mobile version.

    Everything is so truncated that I can't read any titles.

    I can't see a link that allows me to go back to the desktop version.

    Is there one? Thanks.

    I've made a small change to fix the width-constriction issue. Is it better for you now?

    I'll add a link from the mobile style to the main forum style soon.

    Yes, thanks, now I can see what the links in the little box of options all mean.

    Will the mobile version also have the option to "like" and "thank" soon?
    Will it have a choice about viewing your own threads?

    I'm sure I'll like the version soon - it's a change and it always takes a few uses before something new feels right.

    I'm having trouble with it on my iPhone (I'm not sure if it's been specifically done for iPhone though I have never had a mobile version before). Mine is pretty much unusable. There is no way to get back to the main page of a forum section after reading a thread - I have to go all the way back to the Home Page, then choose Forums, then choose Ask A Teacher and start from scratch.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Hiya,

    I've now made the main UE style the default for all devices, however you can select the mobile style in your profile or at the foot of the page. You should then be able to switch back to the UE style by selecting the "Full Site" option at the foot of the page.

    Hope that's a better user experience for you.
