    That only changes my own post. What i need is a hint on how to disable enforced ipad formatting on other posts i.e. not being recognised as ipad.

    Try dig this. I read comments on a post on Fukushima nuke situation. Not exactly a just-for-fun blog. This is a scientific post. There is close to 500 comments on that post and seas of link references that all deserve checking. Links can no longer be opened in another page (function disabled in ipad format). Returning to the post after visiting a link forces me to swipe down for about ten minutes before i find the comment i was at. My own blog controls are disabled (bar is gone). Even if i try to keep two pages open with the same post, so i can at least get back faster, the capacity of the ipad forces a reload, which puts me back at the main post i.e. leaves me scrolling for ten minutes anyway. The side bar scroller doesn’t allow fast scrolling. Who invents such a mistake? Really, i have an ipad and get nuked off side by a format made for ipads. Help!

    We’re working on a front-facing toggle switch for users, much like what we’ve done for the mobile theme.

    Love ya! Looking forward to it for real.
    There’s one thing that still makes me curious. This site i refered to is from a guy that takes his thing very serious. Yesterday i tried to get him to see that his post is no longer readable for ipad users (technically sure, but practically zero). It’s as if he doesn’t get it. His posts were perfectly readable before this format hit. That post is getting cheered from all sides for being the one plain talk info site in a global panic, yet he accepts loosing all ipad users over its appearance. That doesn’t make sense.

    I love WordPress and appreciate all the work the developers do. I do think, however that releasing OnSwipe in this way was not the way to go. The toggle switch is exactly what is needed so look forward to that.

    I found the switch after complaining to wordpress though the support sight. Some of my readers don’t like the iPad interface, and currently the design options are fairly limited.

    It would be nice if wordpress made the option available to iPad readers whether they want to view the blog in iPad swipe or standard display modes.

    Is there a way for a user to turn the onswipe off? I use an ipad and one of thesites I like has the onswipe “on” and I really hate it. It should be user switchable.

    I was horrified at the mess this iPad version made of my own blog. I’ve just arrived at this forum and was pleased to see that there is a fix, which I will try out as soon as I get to my desktop computer. But I read that the fix will only work for my own blog – not for others I look at. This is crazy. For a start it should have been opt-in and not opt-out. But for the change to obliterate so many standard blog features is inexcusable. It’s dumbing down to an unacceptable degree.

    There is another fix for this shambles – use a different browser. The style on my blog is unchanged on Atomic Web Browser, which is much nicer than Safari anyway.

    Even though this has been marked as resolved, it hasn’t been…
    You cant just modify (and wreck) everyone’s themes when they are viwed on an ipad because you guys at automattic think it’s cool… This kind of stuff just annoys users, which is very uncool…. Rick

    What is keeping the unswipe switch? Ipad users need it now, not next month. Please, it makes some posts totally unreadable!! It simply requires too much swiping to follow them. Some posts are more than entertainment.

    Refresh, link side watching, comment, every step requires minutes of swiping!! Please…. try it! This is not a joke. If nothing else is possible, then just kill the format. It is not doing any good. All blogs and posts are quite readable without it. Ipad does not need this.

    The format massively reduces the possibilities for ipad users. Many features are no longer available. It corrupts the browser! It causes repeated app crashes on larger posts. Introducing this format like this is arguably wrong in every way. This is supposed to be an advantage for ipad users. It is not! It just isn’t!

    Hey, I’ve tried the iPad versions of several of the blogs I check routinely and found ti works well, however, my blog only loads the cover. With a swipe it goes to a loading page 1 bar that never finishes. Can you help me figure out what’s amiss?

    Don’t laugh, I’m not the most technically savvy guy on WordPress; but can someone tell me how to get the Launch Screen Image to work properly?

    I don’t want the cover display, and I don’t want the cover logo to show either. I just want the Launch Screen Image to be the first thing people see when they load my WordPress blog on their iPad.

    Thanks you guys.
