IMPORTANT NOTE: Yes, I’m aware that some users have issues with not being able to swap between mobile and desktop themes. There are a few reasons that this can happen, so please try these steps before leaving comments about it:

  1. Clear your cache if possible. You might have the wrong version of the site cached, and your brower is simply serving you the old cached version.
  2. Turn off any ad blocking extensions that you might use. I’m not entirely sure why this works – my theory is that the adblock extention somehow is blocking the script that swaps between the themes – but I’ve had people say that doing this solved their issue.
  3. If neither of those work, please leave a comment with your user agent. This website uses a caching module to cut down on resource usage. For mobile browsers, I have to manually block those user agents from being served a cached version of the web page. So for example, if you’re on a phone but it’s not a user agent that has a caching exception, the site may try to continually serve you the same version of the index because that’s the version the site cached last. The cache is automatically renewed every so often, so this is why sometimes the problem seems to solve itself. Leaving a comment with your user agent will allow me to ensure that your mobile device is exempt from being served a cached page; and if the error persists even with your user agent as an exception, I can report this error to the mobile plugin developers. If you need help figuring it out, please visit What’s My User Agent and copy/paste the results.

Anyhow, on to the original post:

A few of you have sent me emails wanting me to make a less data-heavy, more streamlined version of the site for people browsing by phone, since the normal site can be a bit unwieldy and costly for mobile users to browse.

If you’re a mobile reader, you should already have noticed that this has been done! Now, for both creepypasta and crappypasta, the site should auto-detect that you’re on a phone and give you portable version of the site.

 

 

If you don’t like it (or if you’re one of those unlucky people whose browser likes to randomly show you mobile versions of sites for some reason), just scroll down to the bottom. You should see this:

 

 

As you can probably surmise, hitting the ‘off’ button will magically transport you back to the original version of the site that you all know and (hopefully) love. No need to freak out or leave panicked comments, it’s okay! You can get back to normal with the click of a button.

Now, for mobile site navigation, it’s pretty simple. Hit ‘Menu’ and you can easily access all the pages, tags, and categories that you’re used to. Unfortunately, plugins like popular posts, random posts, recent comments, etc can not be accessed via the mobile theme at this point. Sorry.

 

 

That’s about it. I just wanted to announce this so that you guys know that I *do* listen to your feedback (and also to calm some of you who are getting the mobile theme and freaking out about the ‘new creepypasta’). Now, I don’t actually have any sort of decent phone for web-browsing myself, so I’m having to rely on previewing this through developer tools in Safari. If you find that anything is ridiculously broken, please do let me know.

And please don’t neglect the original theme when you’re browsing on PC. Even if you don’t click anything or buy anything through our affiliates, those ads are what pay the hosting bills! Without them, there would not be a site. That’s the sad truth of the internet.

    On my blackberry it does not and has never showed a mobile theme. I don’t know if it’s even possible on blackberry, because it’s such a crappy phone, but could anyone past the link to the mobile site?

    Thank you!

    LOVE THIS
    My only complaint is the change in color scheme
    But it’s a pretty minor complaint.

    Merrell – It should be auto-recognizing Blackberry phones. There’s no link to a mobile site, because it’s a theme/plugin doing the heavy lifting here and not an actual duplicate site (duplicate content tends to make Google sad, so I’m trying to avoid that). But Blackberry user agents ARE supported, so I’m not really sure what to do for you, I’m sorry! Is there a cache that you might need to clear?

    apocalipserider – Um, considering that you gave me ZERO information to work with, I’m not sure how you expect me to help you. Maybe you could start by telling me what kind of phone you’re having problems accessing the site on?

    Remember that some of you might have issues connected to your phone settings, which I can’t really do much about. If you tell me the exact phone/user agent you’re using and have ensured that it’s not just your settings causing problems, leave a comment with the user agent and I’ll make sure it’s added to the list of agents the plugin recognizes and redirects to the mobile version.

    Beyond that, give me some time to look into this. I’m not familiar with mobile browsing, so this is kind of a steep learning curve for me here. Please be patient/understanding, thanks.

    In regards to the color scheme… I can’t really win. People send me emails telling me how much the darker scheme sucks all the time, too. I can’t do anything right, I get it =P

    notes from someone who spent 24 hours on mobile :

    when you click on a pasta, read it, then click back, it starts you at the top of the page, making you scroll through everything you just read to get to where you want to be. i don’t understand making web sites, but if some sort of place holder could be implicated, that’d be nice.

    also, it crashes once every few hours. which is creepy scary. reading a story, then the screen goes black. the first few times it happened i shat brix. I’m currently building a house

    thank you creepy pasta

  • Hope i dont sound to mean

    Ive been creepypastas for a while and I mainly use my iphone and I am so happy you added the mobile site. But there are many bugs and glitches and some questions I have.

    First off when are you going to add popular and random posts? That was a great feature of creepypasta.

    Second About the crashing, when you load the comments depending on how many there are it will try to load all of them at once and crashes the browser. Most mobile browsers and apps load only so many at a time just so this doesnt happen. Even with 61 comments my phone cant handle not to mention trying to load candle coves comments.

    And last, about the color scheme. I think its fine. Yes dark adds a somewhat more creepyness but this works just fine an makes it easier to read. If you want scary go listin to mrcreepypasta or even worse watch marble hornets entry ####. Thats the scariest video on the internet. I would not suggest watching it alone at night.

    And a suggestion is try to add more to the menu but I like the mobile its very user friendly

    There is SUPPOSED to be a way to switch back to the mobile theme in the footer, but I’m not seeing it either on Safari iPhone developer.

    I’ve tried to contact the people who run the plugin that I’m using, but so far no response. I’m not paying for their “pro” version so helping me is probably not at the top of their to-do list (and before you guys get on my case for not paying for the better version, I simply don’t have the money for it, sorry). The fact that I’m using the free version is also why I can’t add any of the plugins from the desktop version (ie Popular/Random Posts) – I can’t mess with the mobile theme at all beyond what you’ve seen already. Same goes for messing with the comments, I don’t have any options to change those settings.

    So for now, I guess just stop switching to desktop on your mobile if you don’t want the desktop theme?

    Also, are you able to clear your cache on mobile browsers? In the Safari iPhone thing, I can do that and it will take me back to the mobile version once I reload the site. But like I said, I don’t have an actual mobile browser to test it on so I don’t know if that’s something you guys can actually do.

    Only note I would like to add is that it would be cool if we could see the rating for the pasta before having to click on it. Other than that I love the mobile site, keep up the good work!!!

    I have no clue why. But now when I read a story on my pc of the home area it sends me to the mobile theme. I then can’t switch to pc because the button just refreshes the page still on mobile.

    I know this post is months old, but I have no clue how I should submit this issue. Oh well.

      Just to clarify, when you hit the button at the bottom of the mobile theme, it still shows you the mobile theme?

        Yes. It reloads the page, but the mobile theme is still on, And the button shows it as on. The moment I press the button it turns shows “off”, but the page just resets and the mobile theme is still there. And the button is back on.(Okay I wrote that rather poorly)

        I have to say though. The whole thing has gotten stranger. Now it is no longer doing this. I tried about four or five stories that day, and all did that. Today I am browsing stories with no problem.(To clarify ‘no problem’ I mean it does not even start me on mobile theme in the first place. Which is good.)

      I’ll pass this on to the developer of the plugin I’m using to handle the mobile theme, however there may not be much I can do personally until they respond. What user agent or type of phone browser are you using. if you don’t mind my asking?

      I’ll work on some more true story posts, glad to know people like them!
