  • [Forum] vBulletin's Mobile Style No longer stays selected

    When visiting my site from my phone, I switch from the default style to vBulletin's mobile style. Then if I click a link (say to a thread or forum) it changes back to default style. The same behaviour does not happen from my desktop. If I put my phone's browser into 'desktop mode' (where it sends headers/agent strings of a desktop device) this behaviour no longer happens. This also happens with the lightweight style I have installed.

    Any clues as to what may be causing this? Seems to me it would be a vBulletin issue perhaps?

    How about your style? Honestly, nobody really uses vBulletin's mobile style when yours is fast and friendly, lol.

    PS - I've been able to use it in some very awesome ways.

      Yeah, happens with mine too. its not a problem if you use a detection script. if you have no detection script running it seems vbulletin detects the mobile device anyway and decides to give you the default style whether you want it out not-pretty annoying after a short time.

        I can verify the same issue as Dartho on a test site running vb 4.1.9

        Changing to the xxxx vbulletin mobile style or Dartho's nice functioning Light style, vbulletin reverts you back to the boards default style.

        Why is vbulletin forcing end users to browse the vb.com site in their mobile style?

            I checked and missed that bug report, i didnt run a test site in 4.1.8, so that may be why.

            I will vote as that basically sums it up in my case as well, not running a cms either, voted.

            Left a comment as well.

                Some iphone users have been reporting this problem on one of my forums since 4.1.8. After the latest update android users are reporting it too.

                I voted in the tracker, thanks for pointing that out.

                  Just voted. At least I would have if it wasn't marked as fixed.
