I'm happy to announce that the mobile site no longer requires a special URL. We are using detection to give you the right site. While we've tested it ourselves and it seems to work correctly, please post in this thread if that isn't the case.
If you just want to check out the mobile site and don't have a mobile device, it is still available by direct link. Or if you are on the mobile site and don't want it, there is a link at the bottom to switch back (you will have to do this each session though; post here if that is a problem and we will look at other solutions)
We are using the role that wireless devices that are not tablets get shown the mobile site by default. This means your BlackBerry and iPhone will see the mobile site, but your iPad will not.
Can you try it again?
I added this to the file:
It's more specific than I like which implies it will break at some point. If/when that happens, let us know here in the Ranch Office and we can update again.
And of course, the URL coderanch.com/mobile will continue to force the mobile view.

javaranch.com does not have a mobile site. When you click the forums link, it should work.

Is it possible to get a screenshot of that? I don't follow what you mean. (Or a camera taking a picture of the screen.)
Seems to be a change in behaviour with the latest Opera Mini update, some other sites had to adopt, too.
