  • How much of Fandom is available on the mobile site?
    • All Fandom wiki communities are available via the mobile site.

    • Most pages with layouts of standard text and photos render very nicely on the mobile site. Certain pages, however, are too complex for mobile-friendly presentation, and will appear less gracefully (e.g. multiple column layouts). Infoboxes can be optimized for mobile display by using the newer portable infobox markup.
  • What is the best way to view photos?
    • When you're on an article page with lots of great photos, simply wait for the page to finish loading, then click on any photo. This will open a photo viewing window, which allows you to click or swipe through every photo on the page.
  • Can I switch between mobile and standard views of fandom.com?
    • Yes. At the bottom of mobile pages is a link labeled 'VIEW FULL SITE'. Tap it to reload the same page that is served to desktop web visitors. If you want to switch back to the mobile skin, go to the bottom of the page, then click on the link 'VIEW MOBILE SITE'.
