Hi,

It is a bad idea to remove it, but if you still want to do that, then add this js code with placement on all pages:
Code:
if(_userdata.tpl_mobile){
window.location.href=_userdata.page_desktop;
}

Note:This is not going to work if the user has javascript disabled in the browser.

Hello,

When you say 'improve', what exactly do you mean by this? What do you want it to look like? Forumotion has made alot of steps to allow you to customize your mobile theme (founders now have access to the mobile templates for their forum, for example), but you have to know a bit coding to do it though and there are still limitations.

Well I don't know if you've visited are forum on mobile but the display is awful. Things don't fit the screen properly, hard to read etc.

Also as far as I'm aware all are users who use mobile to view the site have it turned to classic view anyway.

I will check out those templates 😉

I actually am on a mobile device right now, as I use my phone 90% of the time to browse the web. I personally do set all forums I visit to classic version just because I know I will have no problem getting around the site using my phone. The mobile version is somewhat basic, but thats the point, as most, if not all mobile versions of sites try to keep to the basics, because thats what works the best for mobile devices.

It is possible to customize the mobile theme itself though, you just gotta know how to code a bit and you can design a pretty nice mobile thing. Now to be clear by customize I mean primarily the design if the mobile theme, the functionality of it you can changed that much (you can do very stuff to it but not much).

So depending on what you mean by improve, yes it is possible to customize the mobile version/theme of the site if you know a bit of coding (more specifically html), if you mean the design of the mobile version. If you mean improve the functionality of it, then customizing this way would be very limited in terms of what you could change, add or modify to it.
