    I can't help but wonder if this problem isn't related to the new banners.

    I've been using Wapedia also - don't like it as well.

    Also have another one called Infopedia - no longer free, but was free way back when, when I first downloaded it. Don't like it as well as Wikipedia Mobile.

    Been having to use Wapedia as well. Not as good as WP Mobile, as I really rather have everything in one page, but at least I can read it!

    I wonder if it would require a webos OTA update or if its on wikipedia's end?

    I'm almost certain that this is a problem on Wikipedia's end. Wikipedia's mobile page has always worked well with the webOS browser going all the way back to version 1.0. I've been on webOS 1.4.5 for a long time but suddenly a few days ago, Wikipedia suddenly stops working when before it was working just fine on the same version of the OS. Nothing has changed on Palm's end. This would imply that Wikipedia changed something that broke their page.

    I tried checking the file on my Pre (/usr/lib/libWebKitLuna.so) that the iPhone spoof changes to verify this, but it appears to be a binary file or something else that I don't know how to read. I'm not sure how else I could verify it, but if it's correct it could also explain the issues with ESPN that some have reported.

    I'm going to note this issue and Wikipedia's information to the iPhone spoof thread, too, so the change-user-agent developer can look at it and adjust the patch accordingly.

    Well, how 'bout letting @wikipedia know again that this needs to be addressed asap? Twitter anyone?

    Yup it's not formatted correctly and not readable @ a glance.

    One of many site issues that will keep coming. This IS a Palm problem in the long run and instead of waiting weeks or months for a website that has no interest in WebOS, Palm needs to make their web browser able to work. This is a constant anoying embarrassment.

    You'll all be pleased to know this problem is also occurring in WebOS 2.0

    Yup. Palm has the least compatible WebKit-based browser out there and I really can't figure out what they did to it to cause things like this, the Digg redesign, the Google problems, etc.

    Not Palm's problem.

    It looks more like those sites are adding new files to their systems (CSS files to handle design) and they aren't setting webOS as an allowed download OS (based on user agent).

    Really? How would that explain something like PreFox working or the iPhone spoof patch not working? Well, idk what user agent string Prefox has actually...

    But it is really odd that the Digg page won't show anything with text on it and it's really embarrassing for Digg if the fix is as simple as a user agent allowance (especially since they now show the mobile site to Pre phones whereas they didn't prior to the redesign).

    This is a constant problem that only happens to WebOS. Please explain why this isn't happening to W7? The whole Internet snapped to it and made their sites compatible to W7 just in time?!? This doesn't happen to any other device, period!

    I would consider this Palm's problem due to the fact that wikipedia is part of universal search, and sold as a "feature" and the feature is now partly broken.

    These kind of things will always be a problem until Palm is taken seriously again. Using a webOS based phone is basically like using a 3.5" floppy disk at this point. Completely outdated and forgotten. HP just dragging their feet and giving the "in the coming months" excuse constantly is more than enough reason for me to move to the Evo as soon as they are within my price range.

    I'm tired of spamming companies to get things done for palm
