Mortigi Tempo Mobile


Fly Wingless

Recommended Posts

So when I first got my phone, I'd go to MT and it'd load in a mobile view, much like how eBay, Amazon.com, and other popular websites have a format especially for mobile browsers. Well, it was actually pretty good, but at one point, I needed to go to the full site (since the mobile site obviously doesn't include some of the features that the full site does). However, I don't see a button to change it back, and despite several restarts, it has never changed back on its own. This is unfortunate, cause the mobile view was good for casual browsing and didn't use up as much data as the full site does. Do any of you smartphone owners know what I'm talking about?

Oh shit, I literally just figured it out. Derp. If anyone was curious, there's something at the bottom left that let's you pick.

 

Edit: now that I'm back in mobile view, it looks different. The thing where you change page views isn't just a link anymore, so maybe that's why I never noticed before.

It sucks cause even when I'm on the computer, it won't go to the desktop version. Even when I click the button to do so.

Same here. I used to have an iPhone and never had any problems like this. Somehow, even when signed in, the iPhone knew to stay mobile, and my PC, even when signed in, knew to stay on the Full Site. Then I switched to a Windows 8 Phone (just to change things up), and now this problem crops up. I wonder if the same thing would've happened on an Android device... Either way, since since signing in remembers your preferences, and since the "Full Version" link doesn't work, whenever I sign in, I'm stuck on the mobile site. If I sign off, I can get the full site back, but if I opt to view the mobile site while signed off, I have to delete my cookies to get it back to normal.

 

Sucks. I had a good thing going for so long (I view the site constantly at work on a PC, and constantly at home on my phone, but now that's all been made somewhat frustrating).

I have an Android. I never had this problem before either, so it might be something to do with the website (I hope). The fact that it affects my computer browsing leads me to think that, anyway. Though, I don't know what would've happened between now and a few days ago. This is pretty bizarre.

I'm 90% sure it's cause I clicked Change Theme instead of the Mobile link. It didn't used to refuse to change back, so that's the weird thing. I would've done it the latter way, but the stupid Dolphin browser puts that stupid sonar button in the bottom left-hand corner and I haven't been able to figure out how to get it the fuck out of my way.

This is the treacherous button--lower left, orangish square: http://postimage.org/image/px9frwh5n/

These are the options for clicking it: http://postimage.org/image/7plp7j6e7/

This is what the mobile version looks like, notice the lack of "Change theme button" once you get there, and the faded "Full Version" link (which is dead): http://postimage.org/image/xu7p5cwrf/

 

From what I've gathered, clicking "Mobile" gets you stuck in this mode on a PC/Mac, and the "Full Version" button no longer works, and there's no option to switch back because the orange "Change theme" button disappears. If you're not signed in, you can delete your cookies to get back to the full site. If you're signed in, unfortunately, the site remembers you and you're stuck forever. I'm sure it was a clever idea designed to be useful, but damn--it's one hell of an annoying feature in hindsight (given that this should be decided by the device accessing the site and NOT the user, as the user can access the site in multiple ways throughout the day).

 

Actually.. If the Change Theme button were present on the mobile site, this would solve most things (aside from having to flip back and forth every time I'm using either mobile or PC/Mac).

Yes, all of this. I never really understood why there was a "change theme" option AND a "use mobile version" button side by side, cause they more or less accomplish the same damn thing. Only the former apparently ruins everything. It didn't used to, though, cause I used to be able to "change the theme" without permanent consequence. This has to be a weird glitch or something. Maybe residual from when Jonathan had to fix the site after that hacker came around?

Haven't done any switching on the computer and I rarely even use it but like I said I have an iPhone

 

But now I see the change theme button next to use mobile version which I didn't realize cuz it was different in your screenshots but yes didn't it used to be the only way to switch from full site to mobile? I just assumed it was replaced
