How can I access the site on mobile?

I'm currently restricted to accessing the site on a desktop because I have no clue how access the site on mobile. Is there any way I can do this?

Just go to it like you would go onto any other website on mobile? That's how I go on MLK on my Android.

I guess you might get confused because a prompt shows up asking to download a paid app that apparently is used specifically to browse forums on mobile devises. Just decline the offer and MLK will load up normally. If that's not the problem, it will help if you will describe exactly what is happening that is preventing you from getting onto MLK on a mobile device.

BTW: I just checked on my Android, MLK works fine on there.

^ I've only got asked about the app thing once. What I'm asking about is if there's a mobile version of the site because all I get is the desktop version on my phone. If not, then this was a stupid thing to ask.

There is only the desktop version. Very few websites have mobile versions, and those that do usually have a thing in common: they hire someone specifically to manage the mobile/desktop versions.

I find using desktop sites on mobile to be annoying, so I rarely do it, unless I really like the site. I was just curious if there was a mobile version of the site.

I prefer the desktop version myself and always put every site that does have a mobile version into desktop version on my phone if possible; however as said, this site does not have a mobile version, so unfortunately if it bothers you too much to use the site on mobile, you'll simply have to not use it that way. :/

I always prefer the desktop version of a site and hate when sites try to give me a mobile version. People should be asking for "mobile friendly" desktop sites, which MLK is not. I'm limited by the forum software, really. Unless/until phpBB has an official mobile-friendly theme that I can extend, it would be too difficult to make a new theme from scratch.

Alright. Noted. I was just wondering if there was one. Could this thread be locked, since it no longer serves a purpose?
