Ability to use desktop layout on phone

I prefer to handle all of my furry business off of my phone. While the mobile layout isn't horrible it is super buggy for me. It would be really nice if there was an option under account settings to always use the desktop layout.

Since FN uses what is called responsiveness to show an optimal layout for your screen no mater what without showing a separate site. Since responsiveness isn't really something that can be just "toggled," this most likely couldn't be done. In terms of web development, this is the easiest way to provide a consistent mobile experience.

I am having the same problem. I change user agents and use the request desktop mode but this site still serves the broken mobile version. Please add an option to veiw the desktop site. Here's a screencap showing the broken layout here.

Under review

The site has undergone significant changes; right now, the width of the window is what kicks in the mobile style, and that style is much more functional. Are you still having issues with this? If so, we can discuss possible solutions.


For now, I believe the site changes have helped the core FN website on mobile, and it's at the point where it works well. The support site was designed by another group, though, so we don't have too much say in the way that it's designed for mobile.
