    When I visit BHW from iPhone or iPad, it always show in mobile mode, which is missing many function than the PC mode.

    I had try to click on the PC Mode link but no result.

    Any suggestion to view in normal mode on mobile? Thanks.

    Same problem here, not able to Thank anybody, give rep, or see the details of who's replaying.
    I found a solution though ... If you have a jailbreak iPhone, look for UserAgent Faker in Cydia, it is a SBSettings plugin that ... fakes the user agent, lol. When enabled, the Safari browser identifies itself as Firefox (funny enough google and BHW displays the desktop version of the site, but Wikipedia somehow still knows it's a mobile device).
    On the down side, I'm using iOS 4, so it may not apply to earlier versions, but when I enable/disable UAFaker under SBSettings, the phone goes into safe mode, but a quick springboard restart takes only 5 seconds, so it's not that big of a deal.
    OOOHHHH, almost forgot, the biggest issue is that I cannot post on BHW for some reason, when I click on the text area to leave a reply, it just doesn't pop up the keyboard. LAME. If I need to post something from the iPhone, I have to go back to the mobile version.

    Have you tried using an alternative browser such as opera to see if it makes a difference?

    Yeah, Opera for iPhone sux big time.
    Although it's not my deal, but I never understood why people don't like jailbreaking their iPhone. I can understand my boss and pol like him, have money (like buying the TomTom GPS app just to try it) and are big Apple fans, but I can't afford that. Jailbreaking is done in 1-2-3 steps, actually in 1, lol, just download the software and push a button, that's it. Plus whenever you want, just restore it with iTunes and is the same as new, no traces whatsoever. I even returned a jailbreaked iPhone to AT&T, after about 3 week after I bought it, it went dead, bricked itself and I couldn't do anything ( I've read on forums, it happened to a lot of people and it's not jailbreak's fault). Apple didn't say anything :) The bottom line is, for me, jailbreaking bring is too much, to let it slide by, but it's really your choice.
    On a side note, I found a website, an online anonymizer that would fake the user agent and display the desktop BHW, but can't remember which one it was. Not that I'd trust that site with my BHW password, lol.

    There's some app (I think it's called attomatic) that fools the site into thinking the iPad is a desktop.

    Thanks for all suggestions.

    But I just like to know if this is a bug of the forum program? I really appreciate if there is a fix on this issue.
