Can I request the ability to view the full desktop site on mobile? I like the look of the mobile, but I’d still like to be able to view the full desktop version without getting on the laptop. If that feature isn’t available through the platform I understand.

Which ones are wrong?

I'm going by this; http://www.vikings.com/news/article-1/2 ... fd90bd3866
Dates are correct but the game "description" is wrong. The 49ers game is Week 1, for example.

I really like the calender though. But perhaps make it slightly smaller in terms of height? Maybe list start and end dates in the same row.

Hmmm ... I'm showing the 49ers as the Preseason week 1 game at the top.

Unfortunately I don't have the ability to edit the calendar in that way. If there is a start and end date (rather than a game that has only one date) It will be shown the way Minicamp and Training camp are.

I have implemented a draft/auto-draft system.

You can now save your posts as a draft at the bottom of your reply. Additionally, drafts of your posts are automatically saved every 20 seconds so should you accidentally close a window or time out your work will remain mostly intact.

Well, what I see is the first four games are preseason against the the 49s, Packers, Bills and Rams. With the corresponding dates Sep. 9th, 16th, 23rd and 27th. Maybe it's my computer.

I don't know if it's your computer necessarily because the plugin is new but those are the dates I'm showing.

What dates are showing for you?

Yes that is what is showing for me as well (49ers as preseason week 1), but the matter of fact is that in reality the 49ers game is the first game of the regular season.

The dates are all correct, it's just the preseason/week description that's wrong.

Ha ha! I was treating weeks 1-4 like preseason. I see now. Thanks!

The feature isn't available via the website but some browsers allow you to. In chrome if you go to your settings there is a checkbox for "desktop site" and you can do it there.

The desktop version isn't designed for mobile though so things might not display properly.

I'm late to the game on this thread. As with any change, it will take some getting used to, but well done.
