Bad URL in DPS browser - fine on desktop

Jul 27, 2012 9:59 AM

Tags: #mobile #url #facebook #redirect

Why is it that when we use the following URL:

 

https://www.facebook.com/kelleydirect/?m2w

 

...in a web overlay (with the intention of circumventing the redirect to the facebook mobile site) yields the error,"The page you requested was not found". Put this URL in a desktop browser and it resolves fine.

 

Any ideas why this error occurs in the DPS browser?

 

 

Also, any workarounds to preventing the redirect to the mobile site?

 

Thanks,

-Mark

    You have to use the mobile version.

    You are getting this because the site is redirecting the DPS browser to a mobile site, which is not allowed by DPS. You need to find the mobile version of any site that you are linking to, and use that link.

     

    In this case the link is: https://m.facebook.com/kelleydirect?_rdr.

    Acceptable or not, that’s how it works and has always worked.

    And yes, you can launch the regular browser. Look in the hyperlink overlay panel. It’s self explanatory.

    The browser is redirecting because that is the way that Facebook handles browsers with mobile user agents. Try Bob's method.
