  • I’d like to turn off mobile support for Twenty-Eleven, so that my clients site only shows up as it would in a web browser. Is there a function or something I can use to turn off mobile support?

  • Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress 3.2 theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues.

    For this reason, it is recommended that you consider creating a child theme for your customisations. Once your child theme is active, add a copy of header.php and try removing <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />.

    Right, I’m aware of that. I’ll create a child theme and follow your recommendation.

    Just wanted to say THANK YOU for this solution, esmi.

    Not realising that Twenty Eleven was responsive layout I spent 100+ hours on getting the site looking perfect in every browser, but didn’t check it on the iPhone (I didn’t have one at the time. I do now). Then realised it was looking horrible on mobile devices because I’d changed the layout from fluid to fixed-width in the CSS.

    Removing that code in the header has magically fixed the problem. Phew. I’ll pay more attention next time!

    Another thank you for this, I also hadn’t done any mobile testing (or intended to) but was surprised to see what a mess my new site was on my mobile, removing this meta tag corrected the issue.

    removing the meta viewport tag allowed me to do media quieries. Thanks, esmi!
