Mobile and Facebook formatting

Hi Yola, I've recently upgraded to Yola Silver to enable certain features, however when I publish my site to Facebook or mobile device it screws up the formatting and it does not look good at all, (seems to remove one of the background layers so can not read text + other issues). I have also noticed that when I publish my site to mobile device the site shows on my regular web browser with the mobile formatting, not the regular site. Again not pretty. So I have turned these features off for now just in case I am doing something wrong? Help!

Hey Amber

I'm an engineer that worked on the team that built the Mobile and Facebook Pages features.

We've noticed that HTML widgets are not playing nicely with our Facebook Pages feature - and Custom Site CSS isn't working well with Mobile or Facebook. This is because on average, this code is meant for modifying the style your regular site comes with, and so when it's added to a different style (Mobile and Facebook each have unique styles with unique width constraints) - it doesn't work very well.

Because of this trend, we'll be disabling HTML widgets and Site CSS on Mobile devices and Facebook. This will mean that the Mobile and Facebook versions of your site will be missing some content, but hopefully it'll just be content that was used to customize your original style.

The release that fix these issues is expected to go out in the next two weeks.
