Default Help - can't find user preferences

I'm new and was playing around with the look of the forum. Changed to Mobile. Now, my user cp doesn't access the page where I can change my preferences. Help! Send my a PM if necessary. Thanks!

Are you logged in?

Does it say "Welcome watercamper" in the top RH corner?

If I remember correctly the mobile version doesn't have the User Control Panel.

EDIT: It has the User Control Panel link, but the settings are limited. Log out and clear your cookies to get out of the mobile version.

Cheyenne - I sent you a PM with a screenshot of what I'm getting. There is no login info on this screen. Sikwan - I logged out. This allowed me to access the non-mobile page. But, If I want to edit my user preferences to get out of the Mobile setting, I have to log in which takes me to the Mobile page with no ability to edit my preferences. I'm in a do loop. Any other suggestions?

I also cleared all sprinter-source.com related cookies from Google Chrome.

Ok - so I went and cleared all cookies from Google Chrome. Didn't want to do it but did. Still can't get out of the Mobile setup. Any more advice? Is there an admin type person that can help? If not, I'll just start over with a different username.

Have you tried this...

http://sprinter-source.com/forum/sho...ghlight=mobile

I tried it on chrome. Clear my cache and cookies and it worked.

Also, do not do a refresh of the tab. Go to sprinter-source.com and then click the forum link.

I found a way to contact the website administrators last night and sent them an email. I'm hoping for a reply and an easy fix.

So sorry. I didn't realize that Sikwan was an administrator. Here's what I just did that didn't help.

In Chrome, click settings, show advanced settings, under privacy click content settings, all cookies & site data, remove all, done, done.
Under privacy still, click clear browsing data with the Beginning of time highlighted, click clear browsing data.

typed sprinter-source.com in the existing tab (didn't refresh), clicked sprinter forum, entered username & password, click login.

I got the same mobile screen and still can't access the user preferences. What am I doing wrong?
