Every time I try to access the weather for Yeppoon Queensland on the desktop using Google Chrome etc it just reverts to the mobile version and nothing seems to change it.

I cannot even contact Weatherzone about it because when I do that it redirects to a mobile version of weatherzone's main home page.

What is going on ?

Hi Vinnie,

There was a problem during yesterday which resulted in redirects issued to mobile devices being cached and issued to other (desktop) users.

It looks like some of these redirects might still be floating around in caches (proxy servers, browsers etc.).

We'll look at this, but as a short-term workaround, you could try appending some dummy parameter to make the URL unique to get around your browser cache. Like http://www.weatherzone.com.au/qld/capricornia/yeppoon?1

Thanks for that though for some reason now the data for latest weather is stuck at 8.50 EST.

Yeh its happening for me too. I keep getting redirected to the mobile site. Both in internet explorer, google chrome, work and home computers, and my iphone. Kinda annoying...

I tried to message them on Facebook but seems some bot thing is set up to automatically respond when you ask stuff on Facebook PM.

Folks,

This root cause of this issue is now fixed. There may be some rogue redirects floating around in browser caches so if the problem persists I can only suggest restarting your browser or clearing its cache.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
