    The pc mode doesn't work properly when using a iphone, can this be fixed?


    I like viewing as a proper website, not the mobile version

    There are appstore browsers that let you fake your User-Agent, I use Atomic Web. The downside in Atomic Web is that you can't write a post - for some reason it doesn't see the post box as a text box. I've just been switching back and forth when I need to, then using Safari to write my posts.
    I just checked cydia - if your device is jailbroken then you can install the "User Agent Faker" from the BigBoss repo.

    However, I'm definitely for getting it fixed server side, there can't be much to it.

    Awesome, that was fast. The only problem is now I don't see anywhere that I can easily switch to mobile mode which is much faster, I do like having the option.

    Just a suggestion, possibly add two good size buttons (large enough to click without zooming way in) at the top of the page if an iDevice is detected, one to "Switch to Full Theme", or "Switch to Mobile Theme" depending on the current theme, then the second button, "Don't Ask Again This Session".

    Cheers

    That works in Atomic Browser but not Safari.

    So you're able to switch between the mobile theme and the default black theme in mobile safari?
