How to force Blogger to show desktop template on mobile devices?


When a Blogger blog is viewed on mobile devices, Blogger by default chooses a mobile template to display the blog. Now, mobile templates are great as the display is optimized for mobile devices' screen. The blog posts are nicely arranged to fit the mobile device's screen. So it is so far so good to view and navigate Blogger blogs on mobile devices.

But if a blogger does some customizations by adding widgets or adds advertisements on Blogger blog, then there are some issues. If a blogger opts to show Google Adsense automatically, then yes, some of those ads appear on top as a banner as well as at the bottom of the page. But if a blogger ads Google Adsense code or other advertising platform code in areas where he wants to display, it does not appear on mobile devices. This can be an issue. As we know, more and more internet users are on mobile devices, chances of those ads getting seen are minimized. If you can to let the blog appear as it appears on desktops to mobile devices as well, then you need to force Blogger to use desktop template.

    This forces Blogger to show the blog as it is viewed on desktops. All advertising code and customizations done are displayed as it is. The Blogger template will adapt to the screen size and show the whole page. The reader may have to zoom in to read comfortably. The texts should adapt accordingly except for the picture. Pictures will stretch out of the screen.

    If the current Blogger template does not adapt well (like custom Blogger templates), try using Blogger's default templates.
