    Hi Tom,

    many of my blog readers are still unhappy with the mobile version.

    That is a result of my “heavy content” blog with a lot of important information in the columns.

    In mobile version, these columns move down and it needs a hell of scrolling to use them.

    Especially with big and high resolution smartphones as the iPhone 6 Plus it is annoying to be forced into the mobile version, where the “normal” desktop version would be much more userfriendly.

    Question:

    Is there any chance – now or in the future – to get an option to choose the “desktop version” on the user side?

    I am not asking for a general admin option like “Generate Disable Mobile”, because mobile devices are too different and for some, the mobile design is a Plus. But an option on the user side to choose the desktop version would be great.

    Another soltion-idea would be an admin setting, allowing to define the resolution of the smartphone from that (and below) the mobile version is forced. With such an option, I could at least exclude high resolution devices from the forced mobile version.

    Any ideas or hints?

    Thanks, Hari

    Hi Hari,

    Having a full on mobile version you can turn on/off per user is a little difficult, but there are options.

    The most used one is from the Jetpack plugin – it’s called “Mobile theme”.

    It will serve a custom mobile theme to your users, and give them the option to “switch to desktop”, which will switch the site back to GP.

    I don’t currently have anything similar planned, but it could definitely happen some day.

    Let me know if you need more info 🙂
