Seeing as it doesn't get used as it should should we scrap it?

Re: Bug Tracker

It still gets used by people submitting bugs into it.
It just seems the bugs aren't picked up and dealt with.
For example: https://www.fiatforum.com/project.php?issueid=174

Exactly, which is why I think if it was a proper forum section like this it would get looked at/discussed more.

Except that yours isn't a bug, it's user error

I've replied with the solution.

No, it's a bug.

If you go to www.fiatforum.com on a mobile device, you get the mobile site (and the URL stays as www in the address bar).

On that skin there is a link - "PC Mode".
If you click on that it changes your skin selection to the full desktop skin.

The next time you again go to www.fiatforum.com (just like you did before) the skin is still the desktop one, and there's no way of changing it back (short of deleting cookies)

Yes, going to m.fiatforum.com will fix it, but where does it say that on the desktop skin?
There is a clear link to go from mobile to desktop, but not the other way.
It's all very well there being a way to do it, but that's bugger all use if you don't know about it.

Re: Bug Tracker

Yes but again, it's not a bug as it's not something that's there that doesn't work, it's something that's not there that you'd like added, and therefore should be in Site Ideas.

I would disagree.
It's a setting that the website software allows you to apply, but not to undo.
Therefore it's a bug within the overall skin function.

At the end of the day though, it highlights the fact that I reported this via the bug tracker in April, and it's taken until today for a fix of sorts to be suggested.

The bug tracker either needs every bug to be replied to by the powers that be (even if it's just to say "we can't reproduce this so it's not getting fixed"), or a better solution needs to be found.
It serves no purpose at the moment if issues reported in there are just ignored.

Re: Bug Tracker

i disagree.

its an issue with the mobile browser on your phone, that a lot of websites have as well.

ive got loads of websites that direct directly to the www address instead of the m site after ive told it to go to the main site. its the storage of cookies and preferances on your mobile.

best fix, m.fiatforum.com or clear your mobile browser cookies

I'm sure @ben could put a small button somewhere up top.

You're missing the point.
It's fine that the site redirects you to the mobile site when you go there on a mobile device - that makes good sense.
The point is that there is a link you can click to get to the desktop site from there.
Once you've done that once, you will always see the desktop site on your phone - the mobile redirect is over-ridden by a cookie.
The choice of phone and browser is irrelevant - it's a value stored in a cookie, so will affect any mobile browser the same way.

Yes, manually typing m.fiatforum.com will fix it, but I didn't know that, nor will 99% of people who find themselves with this issue.
Clearing the cookies will fix it to, as I mentioned at the time, but that's a ballache to do just to reset a site skin.

If there is a clear link to change the preference one way, there should be a clear link to change it back the other way too.

Re: Bug Tracker

blame the industry, some thing like the M should have been made standard for every mobile version of a website
