How do I get Wikipedia to revert to launching in mobile view automatically?

It wasnt displaying something so I had to switch to desktop view temporarily and now it automatically opens every page in desktop view! Aghh! So annoying. These are things that shouldn't be problems.

There should be a "mobile view" link at the bottom of most pages.

One of mobile safaris weakness.

Just use atomic web browser. In settings. Set as identify browser as "desktop safari/desktop Firefox/Internet explorer"

Done

iOS is app centric, hence the Wikipedia app.

But then won't I lose a lot of stored info that speeds up my browsing and have to re-enter every password?

This would be the simplest way.

The "Clear Cookies and Data" option should do it.

The only downside is that cookies for other sites will be lost, meaning that you'll need to log in again to some pages etc.

It shouldn't make too much difference.

Clear your browser's data. That is the solution. Or download the free Wikipedia app. Both have been suggested already. I use the Wikipedia app, personally.

Thanks y'all, deleted cookies and data- worked perfectly.

What do you think of the new mobile wiki layout? It's pretty much the same but they completely changed the tabs
