Yes, The drop down menu simplifies the mobile screen view a lot. So Im not sure how to do that.
Also I have white font on white background. For some reason my install has a white background to the menu area as it stands right now without it being a drop down. This can also be seen as a white bar above the menu options in the full screen view version.
Here is my mobile device version as it stands right now. the white block in the middle has text that you can click but you cant see it until you touch where you think the text would be on the screen.
