    Can the "disable mobile" button be moved to the top of the page or the menu bar maybe? As it is currently at the bottom of the page I have to scroll down to click it. And what happens when you scroll to the bottom of the front page? More articles automatically load and the "disable mobile" link drops out of reach yet again. It's a frustrating game of tag.

    So please either move the button or disable the automatic loading of headlines.

    Just switch the user agent in your settings to stop it thinking you're mobile.

    Hey, you took my suggestion! One problem though...

    The disable mobile button doesn't work at all on iOS Safari. It works on Chrome, however. (iPhone 4S)

    It appears to have something to do with being too near the bottom of the page. It doesn't scroll or adjust to be able to tap the full button.

    I'm not meaning to be a pain in the ass, just offering my hand in testing it. I'm sure you guys gets lots of mobile traffic, probably from iOS browsers primarily? Anyway, thanks for the quick response.

    Whatever you guys did, I can actually post in the forums from my Galaxy S3 now, before when I went to sign on it would just take me to my user profile and log be out when I went back into the forums.

    So thanks for allowing me to post from work.
