G'Day Gang,
I have just joined Permies and would like to know if there is a way to automatically set viewing preference to non mobile.
It seems when I first visit the site I have to scroll down through mega huge text to get to the view normal page.

Hello Dennis,

here is something you can try. (I actually never tried it, so I don't know if it works on permies.) For some broswers, e.g. for Firefox there are plugins, which can modify the "Default User Agent" of your browser. Most web-pages use this "User Agent" to determine if you are using a mobile device or not. The plugin adds a small menu to your browser, that allows to switch to some known "User Agent"s. Switch to some Desktop-Browser and you should be done.
But be reminded, unless you switch the "User Agent" back to 'default', all web sites, might be fooled to think you are running a desktop. (And behave accordingly)

good luck
