Getting some technical items cleared out today. I've set up a backup of my micro.blog and now I am playing a bit more with the viewport setting here, let's see if this helps. Changed the template to just set the initial view, removing device width. Changing to .5 went in the wrong direction. Let's double and see what happens. Now, back a little bit. And a little more. Now with a personal copy of the CSS.
I am getting closer. Now it is rendering nice on my iPad mini, but not so on the iPad Pro.
And boom! Success after bumping up max-device-width to 1024px. Now this site should be rendering correctly on all size tablets.
Do I need to republish all pages? Going to anyway.
