In Geospatial Portal 16, how to force the portal to use other layouts in Mobile devices

Hi team,


Our client would like to use other layouts than Mobile layout in mobile devices, so they can display live search component. I have tried on my local environment. My workflow is:


  • In the portal instance web.config, remove the Mobile layout from the Administration Console template and change the mobile template name to other layout such as Full.aspx.

  • In the Setup.aspx, remove the Mobile.aspx entry

  • Clear the portal instance folder in Temporary ASP.NET Files folder.

I use "Mobile Browser Emulator" extension on Chrome to test and it shows ok.

However, I still see stylesheet and javascript files for mobile layout generated in the portal instance cache folder. So I wonder whether my workflow is good enough, or there are other places referencing the Mobile layout that I miss.


Appreciate all suggestions and ideas


Kind regards,
