ColorWay
Disable Mobile Version (4 posts)

    Hi,

    Is there some way to disable colorway from defaulting to its native mobile version? It looks atrocious on every device I've tested (formatting messed up, pictures elongated like play-doh, etc).

    I use the WP Touch plugin which is far superior to inkthemes' automatically generated mobile version.

    Before colorway introduced their own "mobilization" feature, the site would load just like the desktop version - and it didn't look half bad (just not optimized for mobile). So is there a way to prevent it from automatically generating its mobile version?

    I did. They helped me out over at the inkthemes.com support forum (I highly recommend seeking help there over this forum for anything related to colorway).

    Here's the fix:

    1.) In WordPress, navigate to Theme Options/Editor
    2.) Open the header.php file
    3.) Remove this entire entry:

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=0" />

    This disables the theme from automatically loading the native mobile theme. It might work well for some people, but I've modified the theme so far beyond recognition, I must've screwed something up along the way. :P

    Also, you'd better make sure to backup your header.php before making any changes (I usually just copy the whole thing and paste it into a text document before modifying anything).
