Lightweight Style for Small Screen Devices (cell phone, iphone, mobile, android)

vB Version: 4.1.8 Rating: (96 votes - 4.82 average) Installs: 871
Released: 25 Aug 2010 Last Update: 16 Dec 2011 Downloads: 5749
Supported  

A lightweight *forum only style aimed at small screen devices such as Windows Smartphones, Nokias and even iPhones. It has VERY low bandwidth requirements - 15 times less on my site - 20K as opposed to 300K for forumhome.

*forum only - I have done a very small amount of rough work on CMS templates, a simple single column CMS *could* be created to work with this style without too much effort. However I am not sure if you can have a different CMS layout dependent on which style you are using?

This is an update to the mobile style I have previously released.

The changes are predominantly aesthetic to take advantage of larger screens.

It is also much easier to change colour schemes by editing the commented CSS file.


Demo: http://vbdev.org/forum.php?styleid=7

This is a a lightweight style and as such has much reduced functionality/information over the default vBulletin style.

Install instructions:
  • Firstly, if upgrading, I recommend installing this as a new style rather than overwriting your previous install. This way you get to test it first without trashing your existing style.
  • BACKUP YOUR EXISTING lightweight.css.php FILE IF YOU HAVE CSS CUSTOMISATIONS
  • Download ZIP file
  • Unzip to a local/temp directory
  • Edit lightweight.css.php file to customise colours if required
  • Upload contents of the upload directory in the zip file folder to your forum root.
  • Install style XML via Style Manager in your ADMINCP
  • **Install and configure "LightWeight Style Options"
  • See post 2 for a FAQ
  • Click "Mark as Installed"
  • Test it out
  • Leave a rating
  • Leave feedback
  • Enjoy checking your site from your mobile phone without the need to pinch/zoom/wait etc...
Version Control:
1.0.0 - 25 AUG 2010 - Initial Release on vBulletin.org
1.0.1 - 26 AUG 2010 - Fixed "Mark All Forums Read" link in Search results. Released Lightweight Style Options to customise this
1.0.2 - 21 MAR 2011 - Updated to 4.1.2, removed short tags from CSS, fixed some issues discovered since last release, added some stuff.
1.0.3 - 16 DEC 2011 - Updated to 1.0.3, tried to fix all known issues. Nothing new. If you have updated your site as bugs have been found, probably no need to upgrade. But if you're upgrading your site from to 4.1.9, might be worthwhile.
1.0.3a - 16 DEC 2011 - remove test ad hook code accidently left in postbit_legacy template
Branding Free:
The style is free to use. However I ask that you keep links in the footer. If you want to remove them - send me a donation of an amount you can afford, or that you think is fair/reasonable, it's up to you how much.

When someone goes to the end of forum.php there's an error (after upgrade to 4.1.8). The birthday users are not displayed, you end up getting 'Array'.

Edit the FORUMHOME template and search for the birthday block (Starts with <vb:if condition="$show['birthdays']"> and ends with teh next </vb:if>), remove it and replace with. You can then revert the forumhome_birthday_bit template (which should actually remove it as it is no longer used)

You could try reverting all the templates in teh editor group, but YOu'll have more tweaking to do also. I have deliberately removed it and there are likely javascript files which need to be included in the header as well, so to implement it won't be strainght forward

Are you still looking at this one dartho? I tried changing it back to how it was because those <br />'s were appearing in people's posts and annoying me, but I must have done something wrong because now two text boxes are appearing! haha.

But I am happy to give you any more details if you need them.

Well I have my site that I'm happy to give you access to, to have a look at what might be causing it.

Firstly, awesome style. I've been utilising it for some time.

Since upgrading recently, my users have become "trapped" in the mobile skin, unable to revert back to PC Mode.

The Default Style for Modern Mobile Browsers is unable to be changed, despite having Allow Users To Change Styles to YES.

Any ideas?

Also a tad confused as to what takes precedent with default styles settings between Style and Language Settings and Lightweight Style Options - both include choices to set as defaults?

Lightweight STyle Options asks those for creating links to default style and so it knows what the style ID of teh lightweight style is when it comes to doing things like disabling add-ons etc - it doesn't use these for detection - these won;t affect vBulletins detection. Did you have any other detection scrips before upgrading?

Thanks for attempting to fix my problem - sure is appreciated.

I only have a couple of basic add-ons (VSa - Advanced Permissions Based on Post Count, Word Links by BOP5 VB4, vBookie, vB Optimise Lite, Separate Sticky and Normal Threads, Notification for Reputation) - no detection scripts.

If you have a moment, the website is www.grandoldteam.com/forum. If you visit via a mobile, you'll find your unable to escape the default mobile skin on any page other than forum home. Absolutely no idea where to look to fix, .htaccess?

I get this exact same problem: the posted fix results in the <br /> issues, and reverting it causes the double text box in addition to the vertical smilies.
