Right before Christmas, I started to notice a change in how the blogs I read appeared on my iPad. After some research, and by leaving a question on the Blogger product forum, I was able to determine that Google had made a change without any announcement. All iPads users were now only able to read blogs in mobile view. This means I cannot see your full web version, including your sidebar, unless I scroll down and click through to that choice each time. Tedious, to say the least.
There has always been the option to disable mobile view, so readers with iPhones can see the full version of your blog. I had done that previously, but now it also applies to your iPad readers - 13% for my blog.
Blogger users can disable the mobile view very easily. Under your dashboard, click on Template, then the gear under Mobile view. Choose option to show full web version on mobile devices.
Have a great weekend! After seeing some of the pretty Valentine crafts some of you are making, I plan on getting some supplies together this weekend and attempting a couple projects.
