Lightweight Style Options for "Lightweight Style"
Mod Version: 1.0.0, by dartho (Coder/Designer) dartho is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.6 Rating: (31 votes - 4.90 average) Installs: 429
Released: 26 Aug 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 2050
Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template  

Firstly - this is only of use if you have installed the Lightweight Style

Secondly - make sure you read the notes if you use the Mobile Style and the Mobile Style Options addon.

OK, now that the formalities are over, this is an add-on to the Lightweight Style It allows you to customise a few common parts of the style without needing to edit templates.

It also adds in options to disable some products when the Lightweight style is being used and optionally adds "Posted by Mobile Device" type text into posts created using the mobile style.

* Optionally adds links to default style (in footer or header)
* Optionally add 'Posted Via Mobile' message to new posts/threads (message can be customised)
* Optionally display "What's Going On" box in forum home
* Optionally display Style Chooser in footer
* Set 'Home' link URL (rather than editing templates)
* Can optionally hide mobile style from Style Chooser

Version Control:
1.0.0 - 26 AUG 2010 - Initial Release

Notes:
If you have installed "Mobile Style Options" (vb4) and make use of the 'Posted via Mobile Device' option, uninstalling Mobile Style Options will remove all records of posts made using the Mobile Style. The posts will of course remain, just the message will be gone. If this is not an issue for you - uninstall it BEFORE installing this addon. If you wish to keep those records, rather than uninstall it, disable it OR edit the product via Product Manager and remove all the uninstall code, save and then uninstall (this last option is the cleanest)

Running them both is OK, but you will need to disable the "Add Posted By Mobile Message to Post" plugin on the Mobile Style Options product. Uninstalling one of them will affect the other and cause errors as they share database columns. If you uninstall one without making the uninstall code changes, you shjould uninstall both and then re-install the one you are staying with.

No, it does not. There is an addon for 3.8 which also runs under 4.0 that can do that, however I do hope to update that one of these days and re-release

Uhhh, so after installing this, I uninstalled the Mobile Style Options. Now it appears that I can't post on the forum without a database error! Sweet

I readded Mobile Style options and the database error went away. My users can now post. However, I'd really like to be able to remove Mobile Style options.

I don't know if the problem is related to having both installed or its just Mobile Style options. Should I post in that thread?

edit: BTW, the error was

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'ua' in 'field list'

Error when importing the xml file.

addendum:
Please note, the error was my fault. I had 2 vb admin panels open and had already installed it on this one...

Sounds like neither of you read my notes in the first post in regards to mobile style options and this one. [edit: or perhaps you did but my lack of detail didn't help - sorry] Both share database entries, by uninstalling Mobile, you deleted the database columns which this one needs. To clean things up, you'll need to uninstall both, then reinstall this one.

I would guess hat means you either have another product with the same productid installed (I though vBulletin would track this?) or you have tried to install it twice without the ovewrite option

I read it, but didn't think I qualified. Hopefully we're the only idiots, but it does read more complex that it may need to...

Thanks for the fix tho.

edit: I'm no genius coder, but isn't it generally a good idea for each product/hack to have unique DB entries?
