Can’t switch site

I prefer the mobile site for reading threads, but the desktop site for writing posts. Today I just can’t switch to the desktop. I’ve tried with my old iPad as well, and that’s the same. Anyone else having problems?

I have found that the words 'desktop site' often take a long time to load at the bottom of the page so have learnt to be patient and I can eventually scroll down far enough. Hope this helps.

I can't either.
I got the Error message when I tried.

I agree, it is a pain.

Couldn't access at all at 19.22

I was on the Say how you are feeling thread.

I’ve only just found that I also can’t switch sites, and only discovered it when I wanted to ‘Hide’ a Games thread. To do this I have to switch from desktop site to mobile site, but I seem to be permanently stuck on the Mobile Site.
What’s going on?

Fed up (on Mobile site) everyday there seems to be Bad Gateway messages.

This is my third attempt to post on this thread!

What is going on? I have no problem accessing MN.

I would be very grateful if HQ would take the time to explain.
Please do not ask me to take a screen shot for you to show your techies

I reported my own post of 19.24, to highlight the error message. I wonder if anyone will respond. 🤔

When I tried to contact GNHQ, the site was down! grin

Marydoll Mon 18-Mar-19 19:57:22

I got a message from HQ, saying There is a bit of tech fixing going on which may have resulted in a few seconds drop out here and there .

Thanks for a fast response. smile

I can’t either I was trying to get rid of a game thread and it wouldn’t change to desktop to do it

Charleygirl5 Mon 18-Mar-19 21:32:59

I had a two hour break but it has not improved.

Apologies - we have had a couple of tech fixes this evening which have meant occasional blips.

To switch between sites the easiest way is, as others have said, to scroll to the bottom of the page and click mobile site or desktop site respectively. If this isn't working just drop us a line and we can look at it for you - but any difficulties this evening might have just caught tech while they were doing their stuff

Now I can't send reply to a PM.

I get a strange message with a line of script.

Marydoll Mon 18-Mar-19 23:41:04

This is the script, I'm getting, when I try to reply to a PM.
For some reason, my PC has reverted to the mobile site!

Tuesday a m Still can’t switch mobile /desktop

CariGransnet (GNHQ) Tue 19-Mar-19 07:33:22

Aha - thanks for the above - most useful - we will get tech to take a look asap

Auntieflo Tue 19-Mar-19 07:56:51

Yesterday, Mon 18th, I couldn't switch sites on my IPad. Today, Tues 19th, I am on my ASUS tablet, and still can't switch sites.

Marydoll Tue 19-Mar-19 08:12:35

I posted a message about ten minutes ago, but it's not been posted.

The PM, I eventually manged to send last night, has has been delivered fifteen times ! I was going to apologise to the recipient, but I don't think I will risk it. grin

Your poor techies will have their work cut out today!

Cari, they may be interested to know that I can switch sites with no problem on my PC, but the mobile site seems to be more problematic.

annsixty Tue 19-Mar-19 09:19:02

I also can't switch sites, it is very. frusrating.
No pm,s seem to be going if I have had any sent, I am not receiving them

Greenfinch Tue 19-Mar-19 09:22:44

Can't switch sites either and keep getting Error message.

CariGransnet (GNHQ) Tue 19-Mar-19 09:22:50

Right we have tried something now - please let me know if the issues persist (if they do we will look at other things)

Nelliemoser Tue 19-Mar-19 09:30:37

I have probably added to poor Cari's troubles by still trying to get gransnet to work on my tablet.

xxx Cari.

CariGransnet (GNHQ) Tue 19-Mar-19 09:50:56

Marydoll Tue 19-Mar-19 10:52:26

Oh, we are not easily pleased, Cari! grin
It must be so frustrating for you.
