[Theme: Patchwork] Trying to cut off the mobile view

  • I am using the patchwork babycakes theme. I want to disable the mobile site feature. I just want my site to be viewed like a regular website on mobile devices. I have been taking pictures with my iphone and then uploading them onto my blog (www.sew4generations.com) from my computer. When I view the blog on my laptop, all pictures are correct. However, when viewed on my iphone or ipad, several of the pictures are upside down. Also, the font on the blog is different in the mobile view and is difficult to read. I would like to turn mobile off, but can’t find where to do that. There is no option on my dashboard under appearance. Thanks!

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Ok, it gets even more weird. I switched to the default theme, and viewed it on my laptop- theme changed. I then went to my website on my phone, and it’s still the patchwork theme (and my pictures are still upside down).

    Are you using a mobile plugin?

    Yes, the wordpress mobile pack. Is there a way to change a setting with that plugin so that the view is always a desktop view, not a mobile view?

    I deactivated that plugin and changed the theme- still showing up as patchwork on my phone…

    Have you tried clearing the cache on your phone?

    Does your mobile ISP run a web cache?

    Actually, I just looked at my iPhone and it’s still Patchwork – but I get that on laptop as well.

    Looks like you have caching enabled on your site:

    <!-- Dynamic page generated in 0.510 seconds. -->
    <!-- Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache on 2013-06-17 10:56:55 -->

    Ok, I’m new at this… you’ve lost me. What is caching? Do I need to disable it? How do I do that? Do I need to change something on my phone. I really appreciate ya’ll helping me with this.

    Under plugins, find SuperCache – clear the cache and deactivate it.

    Try re-building the cache via the settings page for WP-Super-Cache.

    Evidently the pictures are just upside down on my phone. I had a couple of other iphone users check and everything is right on their phones. Evidently my phone is reverting back to how I took the pictures. Annoying, but ok as long as it looks right to everyone else.

    You might try clearing the cache on the iphone – and/or making sure you use different image names when you put them on your site.
