I've been unable to view any of our php pages on my phone (Android, with Firefox, Chrome, and DuckDuckGo) the past couple of days. I can switch to "Desktop site" and it works fine, but the mobile version just displays the off-white background of the site and no content.

I just tried Silk on my Kindle Fire, and it had the same problem. So that I could see the source code, I installed an extension for showing the mobile view on my desktop Firefox, and the source stopped very early in the BODY section. It has something to do with showing ads.

In the ads file that got included for mobile, I had recently replaced the AD heredoc identifier with ADZ, but some had used 'AD' instead and so hadn't gotten changed to ADZ. After fixing these, I got it to work in mobile.
