1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

IPF problem!

    For some reason this site is the only place on my iPad that will not turn to landscape or any other way I turn mp iPad 2 ! Any ideas? All are welcome. Thanks, Squib

    If you go to settings and check the forum reading options, you likely have the portrait lock on. To get to settings, tap the more button at the bottom right of the screen in the app.

    What an odd setting to have. I wonder what the reasoning is.

    It's probably something that's built into the basic V Bulletin software used to create this forum.
