Description Alexis DeBussy 2010-04-16 05:54:26 UTC
As of today, Wikipedia mobile forces a redirect to the regular Wikipedia website. Even going through the process of setting Wikipedia mobile to default again results in a redirect to the regular website.

Clearing the cache, cookies, and history does not fix the problem.

Using Sprint HTC Hero running Android 1.5 using the default browser.

This morning the server had an issue that caused it to break.

The default behaviour of the server is that when the mobile
site breaks, it redirects users to the traditional website.

This issue existed for 1.5 hours (until I woke up and fixed
it... and hopefully fixed the root of the issue too)

You should now be able to enjoy the regular mobile site!
