Behaviour using desktop user agent on phone

Post by v12mike » Mon Jun 19, 2017 6:04 pm

After upgrading from 3.1.10 to 3.2.0 it has been noticed that the behaviour regarding desktop user agent has changed.

On 3.1.10, if a mobile device (e.g. a phone running Opera or Firefox or Chrome browser) was configured to use the "desktop" user-agent string, phpBB would serve a page looking pretty much like the large-screen page.

On 3.2.0, on a viewtopic page, it now (regardless of the user-agent setting) omits the postprofile fields to the left of the post body, making the page look like the mobile page not the large-screen page.

Is this an intentional change or a bug?

Both 3.1 and 3.2 change the display page based on the window-width, not the user agent.
