This style has been superceded by http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=263822 for vbulletin 3.8.7

This is identical to teh 3.7 version, except that it has had the version numbers updated on the templates so you don't get the outdated templates messagesin AdminCP. You do not need to upgrade.

vBulletin 4.0 version here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=228986

A very cut back style with very low bandwidth usage which renders well on pretty much all small screen devices from old Nokias to new iPhones.
  • Supports viewing/posting/replying in forums
  • Supports Private Messaging
  • Supports Tags (viewing, not adding)
  • Supports viewing and replying to messages in Social Groups
  • Supports Thread Prefixes
  • has an add-on product to customise here: Extend and Customise Mobile Style (It is recommended that you install this also, but not required)
  • Supports other stuff too ....

  • If you are installing this on a vBulletin version higher than the current 'supported' version, and wish to get rid of the Out-of-Date Custom Templates Found! errors, see Post #329 for more information...
  • I suggest you also install this add-on to this style to get more out of it...
  • To modify the colour scheme of this style, you have to edit the wireless.css file by hand
  • If you use a portal such as vbadvanced which you wish to disable in mobile style, see here

Release Information
  • Version 1.0.0 - Initial release ported from my 3.7 version

Install Instructions
  • Save attached XML to your local computer
  • Save attached wireless.css.txt, rename to wireless.css and upload to your forum root
  • In AdminCP go to "Styles and Templates"
  • In the "Import Style XML File" section browse to where you saved the XML
  • Click "Import" button
  • Come back to this page and click "Mark as Installed"

Small question.... I use VBadvance cmps - is there a way to assign a different home page within a style?

dartho 05 Dec 2009 22:38

I haven't found a way to do this yet. What I ended up doing on my site was to edit the vbadvanced templates in the mobile style to make them mobile friendly. Alternatively you could just edit the adv_portal template and 'disable' vbadvanced in teh mobile style - see here http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...71#post1535871

nice thank you

I'm only able to see the most recent post in a given thread. Is there a way to see the previous posts in the thread?

hurricane_sh 13 Dec 2009 10:27

Texas_Dawg: Just scroll up the see other posts.

Great style, it would be perfect if it works with vbulletin blog.

Works perfectly. Just a note to VBAdvanced users.

If you use VBA modules on your forum index with this skin and you want a header bar for the module you need to change the class in your adv_portal_module_wrapper under this style.

Just change the first tcat to titlebg and it should show up better.

Also to disable VBA modules in this style you need to add a plugin.

You can find the details at this link. Hope it helps.

I was referring to viewing threads via this mod on my phone. When I click on a post I only see the most recent post. I can't access prior posts in the thread as I could via Hybrid/Threaded mode on my computer. Is there any way to do this?

dartho 22 Dec 2009 21:50

I'm afraid it doesn't support threaded (or Hybrid) mode. A pugin to set the mode to linear when using this style may be able to be wriiten ...

Dartho - How do you switch skins from within this style?
I see code in the footer for the quickchooser but it is not loading.

dartho 23 Dec 2009 23:11

Install this: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=229241 and set the options

caliman 23 Dec 2009 23:50

Thanks. Do I have to uninstall this version or can I just overwrite? - Edit... looks like an add-on...
