    I recently built a client site using the Studiopress Fabric theme ( and when we try to open the site from a mobile device a .m is added in front of the url and the site doesn’t open at all.  It is just a blank screen.

    I am new when it comes to setting up a site so that it is mobile ready but I am assuming that the theme would work automatically?  Is there something I need to do?  Or maybe I can remove the .m extension so that site opens normally?  I appreciate any insight that you might have.

    The usual explanation for what you’re seeing is either a) you’re running a plugin for mobile (e. g., WP Touch) or b) you have redirects on your server (such as in an .htaccess file) that detect a user agent (such as a mobile one) and redirect the URL to the same URL with m. appended  to the start of it.

    If you know you don’t have a mobile plugin, reviewing server redirects would be a good place to start.

    Thankyou!  I was able to update the .htaccess file and the site is now working.  :)
