    I look at BM on my iPad and the last few days a bloody irritating sign comes on saying please rotate you device. I know it goes when I turn the iPad sideways but then I have to hold the damn thing.

    Does anybody know of a way I can go back to looking at BM normally?

    Turn your iPad sideways go to Settings / General / Lock rotate and tap. To unlock do the same again

    The bloody thing has started doing it again. Locking the rotate no longer works and in some respects has made it worse as I have to unlock it to get rid of the screen.

    This only happens on BM though so surely it must be something unique to this forum.
