Reference: Don't use mobile theme on iPad

This was ok for a while, but just this morning I started getting the mobile theme on stackoverflow.com on my iPad again.

I have an iPad 1, and I recently upgraded it to iOS 5 -- but I was getting the regular theme after the upgrade until today. (I had the site open in the browser with the regular theme, but I got the mobile theme when I reloaded or opened a link.)

Did something break in the last day or so?

And is there a way to select the mobile theme vs. the regular theme, regardless of what device you're using? (Yeah, that's two questions.)

Can't you specify which to use in iSafari or iWhatever? I know I can specify a moble/desktop preference on my windows 7 phone. Perhaps the update added this option (if it wasn't there before) and now you have to configure it? –  Won't Oct 19 '11 at 17:50
    
Two downvotes a day apart. There must be some reason for that. Would someone care to enlighten me? Is it because I asked two questions? –  Keith Thompson Oct 20 '11 at 20:21
    
Downvotes are different on meta. However, I'd suspect people downvoted because it was a simple answer. –  Won't Oct 20 '11 at 21:05
    
@Won'tಠ_ಠ: I understand that downvotes are different on meta. But it was a real problem that I ran into, others may also run into it, and the solution (workaround?) isn't entirely obvious. (And I still think that something changed on the site to trigger the problem; it's possible that I accidentally tapped the "mobile" link on the footer, but I don't think I did.) Oh, well. –  Keith Thompson Oct 20 '11 at 21:20

Yup, there's a link in the footer.
