Ok, so all was well in my Techpb world. My laptop viewed the site in the desktop version, while my android phone defaulted to the mobile skin. I needed to look at someone's sig while browsing on my phone, so I went to their profile... couldn't see it. I had to enable the desktop skin (no problem, phone can do it, easy peasy done.) I switched it back to mobile after seeing the sig/link and turning down the guy's offer. When I went to the site on my laptop, it had decided to remain on the mobile skin... okay, so I switch it back to desktop and browse. When I go to my phone... yep, desktop skin.

WTF is going on?

also... can you please add an option to the mobile skin (or make a Mobile w/sigs skin) to view signatures?

It's called user agents. When you log on with mobile the system uses the mobile skin. With a PC you are sent to the regular skin. If you wish to change the skin then you over ride the system and you stay with your choice.

Keep your preference as the Desktop version. Power off your mobile then turn it back on and the system will do it's thing again seeing you are once again on mobile.

We pick up your system's signature and assign you to a default skin.
