Hello Bradley,

The Mobile publishing can be toggled on and off by navigating within the Sitebuilder and subsequently republishing after changing from one to the other:

Site ↴ Publishing → Mobile

Hi Bradley,

Getting back to your query: "........, is there anyway of disabling the enhancer to show the pc version ? "

You can do this by turning off the mobile publishing completely. If you do this a mobile device will try to display the site like the PC view. In other words not tune for mobile view at all.

The way to do that I described in my upper response.

I just reviewed that. It seems now that you can't turn off the mobile view anymore. Your only choice now is selecting the minimal. ie option #3

Sorry Bradley

Hi Bradley,

Could you share your website URL with us?  Then I can take a look at your site and let you know your best option.

Thanks for your help!

Is there any way at all to disable this horrible feature? I spent months on a site for my client that is absolutely ruined by this. I could not be more dissatisfied. I just published the site tonight and was horrified.

Hello Adam,

What is it with your site that you are dissatisfied with?

I can see a couple of issues with loading times but don't know what you don't like. Your small images are displaying quickly eg: Vang Vieng by the Nam Song.and the Hmong weaver

I think your expectations can be met with some tweaks.

Hi thanks for the response. You'd have to view the site on a PC to see the difference. I very specifically laid the site out in a certain way, but when all the pictures are stacked up for this mobile responsiveness, it pretty much makes a mess of things in a bad way. I considered and played with the "simplified mobile version," BUT it's not really doing what I want it to either. Surely there must be some way to override this. If not, they really need to make that an option--be it by click or by code--for users who have designs they need a little more control over. 

What is "Vang Vieng by the Nam Song.and the Hmong weaver"?

Hello Adam,

The images around the Rebozo are pooooossibly  pics of the Song River in Vang Vieng, Laos and the lady weaving appears to be Hmong minority(?) I can't see her full head nor the weaving detail, so guessing.

If the problem is vertical presentation on mobile devices this is the way it was designed. Generally users don't want to horizontally scroll and mobile presentation therefore places the elements in a vertical stack. I presume this is what you are referring to? If so there really isn't a code that will align the elements as you view them on a PC, in mobile devices.

Thanks again for the reply. I am feeling less pessimistic about this after some sleep, it was a long night getting the site ready and published. 

I am aware that one can enter some code

for example:

<script type="text/javascript">
  <!--
  if (screen.width <= 800) {
    window.location = "http://m.domain.com";
  }
  //--> 
</script>

to point to another site that I can optimize for mobile devices. Any thoughts on how this may work on Yola? Anyone tried something like this?
