Force rendering to Page view on client side

Hi, On the Bold browser (firmware is it possible to force a page to Page View (where default is set to Column View).


Certain pages we have in place only display well in page view, however we will be configuring our Bold rollout devices with Column view by default.


If we could specify pages to be viewed in Page View, this would elimate the need to re-work out site.


Thanks in Advance

Re: Force rendering to Page view on client side

You can't specifically force page or column views, but you can control the zoom level and width of your page.  This allows you to make the page view appear similar to how the page would look in column view.  Please see the link below for more information.
