    What exactly do you mean by "auto-zoom"? double tapping on the page to zoom?!?!

    sorry i was rushing out of the house and typing at the same time, let me explain. What i meant by "auto zoom" was like when you go to jaillbreakme.com for instance its already zoomed to where the content is but when i upload my website to my server(with that code in it) it doesn't work. BUTTTTT when i uploaded it to free-webs it worked without a problem. Is there something i need to do in my server config or anything like that to make this work?

    If you mean that your content is located at the top left corner of your screen, try adding this line in:

    PHP:
    <meta name "viewport" content "width = device-width">
    This should make everything in your website the width of the device you are using. If it doesnt work, send me the source code and i'll check it out!

    Could you also PM me the link to this website so that i can see it? thanks!

    I'VE DISCOVERED SOMETHING!!!! OK ive been toying with my website a little here and there trying to find my issue. well i found it!

    I use No-Ip for my ddns and i use Godaddy for my domain needs.

    Lets just say my site is http://tylersipod.sextonhosting.com(its not) and using godaddy i forward it to http://tylersipod.no-ip.org (again thats not real either) so when i visit http://tylersipod.sextonhosting.com its like the
    Code:
    <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width">
    isnt even in the html but when i visit http://tylersipod.no-ip.org it works fine

    so in other words ive narrowed down my problem to godaddy. is there some setting i need to change on my godaddy account orrr something else i need to do
