My mobile access alway redirect to mbllists.aspx RRS feed

  • Question

  • Public facing anonymous web site. When I tried to access using a mobile device, all aspx pages in Pages libraries were redirected to '/_layouts/mobile/mbllists.aspx' and all documents gave download error.  Clicking on images, they displayed fine.

  • It's because SharePoint is detecting the mobile browser and redirecting you to its version of a mobile site... turn it off in the compat.browser file.

  • Do you have a mobile version of the site, or can you just disable the mobile detection in SharePoint and call it good?

    following this post: http://www.khamis.net/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=51

    you can edit the compat.browser file so that the IsMobileDevice property is always false.  Nice thing about doing it this way is you can have one URL as 'desktop experience' and extend your WA to a new zone with mobile detection still on for those people who want to use it.

  • I don't have mobile version. I am wondering why it always go to the  mbllists.aspx.  Is that because mobile can't render web part page?

  • My "Mobile Browser View" was activated. I had to turn it off via /_layouts/15/ManageFeatures.aspx
