    The Style options went through some changes.

    Have you tried the “Mobile” style?

    Yeah, me either for a tablet.

    I’m just using the desktop view now on tablet. The mobile on my iPhone.

    My iPad retained the tablet view, but clicking on style chooser doesn't give the option. :dunno So I just leave well enough alone with that, don't want to leave it and not be able to get it back.

    As I've said in other places here, I like the tablet view on my desktop and laptop because it eliminates the column on the left with Trending Topics etc and gives that space back to the forum content, without any other affect on the board. Scott Peterson asked for feedback via PM after the Dark thing was fixed, and I sent him one pointing out the tablet view being missing. He said he'd pass that on to his peeps.

    EDIT: Now the tablet view has disappeared from my iPad too, after bravely hanging on through the darkless days and for a day or so after. Now the text is all crammed together.

    Tablet view should be there. I'll put in another support ticket.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Scott. FWIW, I don't see Tablet View when I look into the Style Chooser. I only see four options, one I'd call "regular", and its "Dark" counterpart, then "Mobile" and its "Dark" counterpart.

    Where can I find the Style chooser?
    I prefer the tablet view also.

    I see it located at the far lower left of a page. Just above "About us" you should see a narrow-ish banner where a link resides labeled "The Gear Page" with a small icon that looks like a paint brush (looks like that to me :D). Hover over that and see if the little java pop-up thingy displays "Style Chooser".
    I don't see Tablet View back in there yet. Might still be working on it.

    @Scott Peterson , any news on this yet?
    TIA,

    I do my TGPing on a tablet and have had that option down below as far back as I can remember. It's there now.

    Thanks for the input, MoPho. I do not see it as an option, and I'm trying via a couple different browsers.
    Hmmmmm ......

    Please bring the tablet theme back. The sidebar is annoying.

    Please bring back the "Tablet Style" it was much better than the Mobile or The Gear Page Style.

    I also hope this gets fixed. The style being tied to account rather than device is a pretty annoying feature as the mobile view doesn't look very good (too small fonts, too much spacing) and the desktop view with the stupid sidebar gets cramped even on my 12.9" iPad Pro.
