[Plugin: WPtouch] Problem switching to desktop theme when using special mobile home page (2 posts)

    I'm using a premium theme that sets my home page to a custom layout (that is not mobile friendly). I created a new page to serve as my mobile home page and set it in WPtouch settings.

    WPtouch correctly displays my alternate home page on mobile devices. However, if I switch to the desktop view, WPtouch reloads my alternate home in the desktop theme instead of redirecting to the real home page.

    Just to clarify, on a mobile device, myblog.com redirects to myblog.com/home-mobile in the mobile theme. If I use the control at the bottom of the page to switch to the desktop theme, it stays on myblog.com/home-mobile instead of redirecting to myblog.com.

    I assume it is a bug in WPtouch. Can anyone suggest a workaround?

    Hi Jim,

    It is not a bug per se. WPtouch Pro includes a feature which allows you to select where users are redirected when switching to your desktop theme. You can select "Same URL" or "Homepage". When selecting "Homepage" users will always switch to your site's homepage - myblog.com.
