[resolved] Mobile Phone Opt Out? Button somewhere?

    I would really like to kill whatever code is causing buddy press to look so terrible on my iPhone. Is there a way to opt out of the mobile design? Or are we forced to have our sites look this badly? I wish I had something positive to say about it. I just don’t. It’s causing my site to have double banners. The sign in is at the bottom of the page. It isn’t user friendly. People can’t figure out how to log in on their phones. It didn’t make any sense to change. I’m sure someone worked really hard to code it and I’m not trying to be a jerk – I just don’t like being FORCED to use something I don’t want to use. I want it to look normal again.

    Why isn’t there a radio button to click if you want to use the mobile design?

    I want my site to look exactly like it does on my computer.

    And you can’t get to the dashboard on your phone anymore. :(

    @zkwc are you using the bp-default theme or a child theme of bp-default theme?

    @mercime @zkwc I have the same issue. I am using a child theme of the bp-default theme. Any advice gratefully received.
    Thanks

    @zkwc @solarprestige add this to your bp-default child theme’s functions.php file

    `remove_theme_support( ‘bp-default-responsive’ );`

    @mercime Many thanks for your swift response. I’ll give that a go.

    I have put this code into an empty functions.php in my child theme and nothing has happened. Do I need anything else? A hook of some sort? Or does that code sit alone within opening / closing tags?
    I have looked around the net and tried a few things but nothing is working. I am a real beginner when it comes to php (and most things really :-) ) so I imagine this is something quite obvious.

    Install this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-extended-settings

    Has option to turn off setting.

    @mercime just putting remove_theme_support doesn’t work. You have to add it to a certain action.

    Thanks, I’ve activated that plugin. The toolbar has reappeared which is great. However the layout on my iphone now has column on the right-hand side (I use a child theme of the default theme) taking up most of the screen with the main body just a thin sliver on the left.

    Is there a simple fix to this or does this require editing the css? If any code needs changing, any info on where I should be looking would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks in advance for any pointers.

    Is your theme a custom them or BP-default? If its BP-default you have to force a width. Fluid widths without responsive layout are a small screen nightmare. Have you considered another responsive theme or BP mobile plugin?

    Useful information.
    I’m using the BP-default theme. I’ll have a play around and then most likely use the plugin.
    Many thanks @modemlooper

    @modemlooper – unfortunately it breaks profiles when I use it there. :( Fatal error: Cannot access empty property in /var/www/vhosts/figuremodels.org/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core/bp-core-template.php on line 823

    but how do you tell it to disable the mobile view on phones? didn’t see that part.

    If you are using bp-default you can install BP Extended Settings plugin. There is option to turn off responsive css. You will still need to add some css that forces a minimum width so the content doesnt get scrunched up.
