Ever wanted to try to visit your site thru your cell phone or a blackberry or PDA and get a prolonged delay to view an page or get "page too big for device to display" errors?

Skinlite Blue is a very simple version of vB with no images and other additional stuff that would steal your kb useage like signatures and some other small things. Skinlite Blue is PURELY based on CSS.

I tried to port over the Multi-Quote function to the skin but I couldn't convert it from image to text based code. I did try to get an offical request on here but my thread went unanswered so I killed Multi-Quote.

There is nothing fancy with this skin but this skin is more ideal to PDA, cell phones, blackberries and other small devices that can run the net.

KNOWN BUGS:
I have a slight problem with the thread ratings. If anyone figured out how to fix the bug, let me know how and I'll re-update the skin.

Live Demo: SkinLite Blue (http://www.weedtalk.com/forums/index.php?styleid=14)

This is not a normal skin that you would download and install on your forums.. it requires small changes on your current PHP files and add a modified JS.

If you have found other bugs or want to improve something on Skinlite Blue, you'll know how to contact me.

Enjoy! Click Install if you are currently using this skin.

How do I figure out the style ID for this?

Installed.

Is it possible to disable avatars and signatures for a particular skin? I'd like to configure postbig to appear above the post but only for this one.

The signatures have already been removed on this skin but if you want to delete the avatar script:

Log in to your admin cp, style manager, Edit templates on Skinlite Blue... On "Postbit" look for <if condition="$show['avatar']"><td class="alt2"><a href="member.php?$session[sessionurl]u=$post[userid]"><img src="$post[avatarurl]" $post[avwidth] $post[avheight] alt="<phrase 1="$post[username]">$vbphrase[xs_avatar]</phrase>" border="0" /></a></td></if> and remove it to permantly disable Avatars on Skinlite blue.

Did that, and also changed a two columns layout (avatar + message) for a two rows one. Now my site fits in width 640. hehehe

could we rip the entire HTML out to make it txt only so it is a true mobile skin? I have palm treo that I use and go to a few sites that are optimized for such devices...this looks close :)

here is one example click here for treo optimized style (http://treo.discussion.treocentral.com/index.php?styleid=14)

Oh wow, that takes the cake. I thought it was the archive section but it proved me wrong. I could make it like that but it takes time to organize it.

Where is the leftover images? I tried to look for any remaining unneeded imgs and couldn't find any. Without touching polls, avatars and editor imgs.

Put the skinlite_menu.js into your ftp under forumroot/clientscript

upload the vbulletin_style.xml in your admincp under style manager/download/upload styles

and then you will need to do the edits in functions_forumdisplay from /forums/incudes which you will find in the text file in the zip file

Hope that helps.

I think this is a VERY important style and it doesn't necessarily have to be as bland as the TreoCentral pda forum. It could maintain the design of vBulletin except all images are text and some of the unnecessary things are removed - like avatars and signatures..

There needs to be two resolutions.. 320x320 and 240x240. The navbar will need to be dropped to two lines or more and the login box will have to be placed beneath the top/left-side logo.

There are a few columns that are also unnecessary when browsing via PDA. Last Post, Threads, Posts and Moderators are all unnecessary. Basically, you need to have the ability to browse each forum, read, post and reply.. That's about it..

I've also been working on a template but I cannot figure out how to get rid of the above mentioned columns...

There may be some tables or cells in the footer that also need to be broken into two or more lines. Once this is done, we'll be able to browse forums on the go. I browse my own forums very often via Treo 750...

Here's a good example of what I'm talking about:

With the standard vBulletin colors, it would still look nice...

Okay. I just figured out how to remove those columns I was talking about. This is going to get interesting...

I use something similar. I used elements from various mobile/lite styles released here and at vbulletin.com. I'll be happy to provide the xml file if people want to tinker with it.
