The mobile view is very different from my desktop design and I hate it.  I've clicked the option to have mobile users view my website in original desktop version but it's not working.
It even looks different between my husband's iphone and my droid.  On his phone there are large gaps where there are none on mine.  Help!! 
Why doesn't that option to only present my website in desktop version work?  I especially want to have the option to enlarge the photos, which mobile does not allow. 

thank you!!

I am sorry but the option to not display the mobile version has not been added just yet. The option displays, but the code behind it is not yet ready.

Your mobile version looks good to me on my Android phone. The photo gallery images can be clicked on and englarged and scrolled through. Can you get us a screen shot of the iphone with the gaps?

Here is a screen shot of how it looks on my husband's iphone.
I also can't figure out a way to add a menu bar at the bottom of the mobile page (so people don't have to scroll all the way back to the top)
It also doesn't download the larger photo that I have under my photo gallery on the desktop version.
I can't reconfigure the text on mobile so that it looks better.  And the gray box around the text that I added is too tight at the top of my text and I can't seem to adjust it.
I would be SOOOO much happier if my clients could just see it on their phones in the desktop version.  Why do you have the option button for desktop or mobile if you only offer mobile??

thanks for responding Drew.  I do appreciate the help.

Posted this on another thread, maybe it can help...

You can hide something just in the mobile version... There is a little eye that hides it only in mobile, it's on the right and it looks like a little eye. So I did and then took the same image and used it as the background on the text box with the lettering CAT.

When the advanced menu comes up, go to Style and enable "Mobile Custom Style" with the little slider. There you have a whole bunch of options, including background image. You can disable "Mobile Custom Style" again by clicking the slider on the top of next to the Mobile Custom Style [?]

Also, you can find all you have hidden in the menu on the far left in settings. There you will find a section called "HIDDEN ELEMENTS" - Click the eye of the thing you want back and bobs your uncle.

I must say, the designers did some really smart and cool things with this new builder. The more I learn, the more I'm liking it. Even when something doesn't do what I want, so far I've been able to find a temp work around. It's a credit to their work.
