Using a tablet to access router forums

I just bought a Samsung android tablet. I quite like it and am using it more and more to replace my PC. I find though that when I come to this site I get a different presentation. The threads are listed but there is no banner with the usual headings like Home, Forums, Active Topics, etc. This makes getting to the current stuff slow and cumbersome. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm a poor person to ask but it may automatically be defaulting to a mobile device type format. Check at the very bottom of the page and see if you have an option to change formats. If it's not there it may be part of a menu that may be indicated by 3 bars or 3 dots. I still prefer the classic version, the original. When I have to access with my Iphone there is a way around the default that I use. If we can't get an answer in the Lobby then repost under the Site Help heading. That way Admin sees it and the experts can join in to help.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Request desktop version usually is in the menu.


I don't like the mobile version either!

I bet it's the smaller screen.

Had the same problem on a Kindle HD 10. Cleared the browser's cache and it went back to normal.

Thanks for the suggestions but no luck so far. John I can't access the screen you suggest. Gene the browser clear doesn't help either. Basically I have a screen with no menu or ways of making a change.

Dennis , seeing as this tablet is new , are you logged in to this site with the tablet?
I know it sounds like a dumb question , but there's a possibility you could be making these posts with a desk top computer in the mean time

If at first you don't succeed , then skydiving is not for you
