    That’s great to offer this. Well, no I don’t have an iPad and won’t be getting one for ages, if that. I have other financial things to look after that are greater priority.

    Wish I knew what the full effect looked like when I change and customize the settings as explained by WordPress.

    But for certain someone there loves the bright blue for a colour iPad skin. So I changed it to neutral and have no idea what I did..was the font light or dark? So we need to know the default settings for those of us who don’t have iPad but want our blogs to still look decent on iPad.

    Thank you. :)

    The blog I need help with is cyclewriteblog.wordpress.com.

    I disabled this iPad feature until they work out things… It is cool because it let’s users flip thru pages… However, there is no way to subscribe by mail/rss/etc.or share via twitter…

    Well, I don’t know about the iPad, but the mobile version of your site looks just fine on my iPhone, and the browsers are the same, so the only difference should be that the stuff will be a little larger when viewed.

    maidiebike, if you have Safari installed on your computer, go to Preferences -> Advanced and check “Show Develop menu in menu bar.”

    Then, go to Develop -> User Agent and select “Safari iOS 3.2.2 – iPad” and load your blog. You’ll have to approximate the swiping gestures with click/drag, but you should get the general idea.

    thesacredpath, we actually launched a special iPad-only theme separate from the mobile theme. It’s pretty cool: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/03/23/ipad-onswipe-theme/

    Thanks for the link to release statement…. Theme is snazzy ….

    I guess this theme does not support subs option features…. Email… Rss…. When I view my pst, only Facebook and Pressthis sharing buttons are visible… Twitter button is not visible…. Waiting to enable this theme until I see it was addressed ….

    Hi. I have a quite serious issue with the way my theme (White as Milk) appears on the iPad. My blog depends on a very clear distinction between text I write and text I quote. White as Milk indents text that is quoted. It’s clear what is me and what is not. With the iPad version there is no difference in the way text displays – which makes a complete nonsense of the blog.

    Solutions?

    Thanks!

    OK … I guess the only solution is to turn off the iPad display altogether in preferences.

    Is up up to the creator of each theme to create an iPad version of that theme that mirrors its features? Are we going to get some choices on this eventually?

    Agreed

    As this is a brand new feature perhaps contacting Staff directly is the way to go. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    You can disable the iPad theme at Appearance -> iPad in your Dashboard.

    Thanks, mac. My partner has a Mac, so he’ll be trying it out based on your advice.

    You’re welcome!

    You can also do the same trick using Safari on a PC.

    I have an ipad. It was a present, which is a good thing, ’cause if i had payed money for it, it would hurt. I had hoped to get a usefull tool, but got a frequently malfunctioning toy. The craziest thing is, its not the pad itself, but the enforced format that gives me most of the problems. Many site administrators, also in wordpress, believe the format is an advantage for ipad users. I experience that this is not true. Links can not be reached at all or are practicly unreadable (try scrolling through some 500 comments every time (every time!) you check a link). Zoom features are KO. Normal browsing doesn’t work. Even the ipad request page is a disaster, because it mostly fails to pass to anything but home pages. Can anyone please tell me how i can switch it of, its driving me crazy. How can i get my ipad to not be id’ed as an ipad and forced into this nightmare of misprogramming?
