Lightweight Style for VB3.8.7 iPhone/Mobile/Cell/PDA Details »
Lightweight Style for VB3.8.7 iPhone/Mobile/Cell/PDA
Mod Version: 1.0.1, by dartho (Coder/Designer) dartho is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2021 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.7 Rating: (31 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 247
Released: 18 May 2011 Last Update: 20 May 2011 Downloads: 1985
Not Supported Re-usable Code  

A few have asked for this, hope you like it.

As the title suggests, this is a lightweight style for vBulletin 3.8.7 (and probably most versions before that - A quick test showed it also working under vBulletin 3.7.7!)

It's lightweight (low bandwidth) and works well on most handheld / mobile devices. Some have been know to use it on their desktops and I personally use it for Google as a way of significantly reducing the bandwidth they use.

====================
Install Instructions
====================
  • Backup
  • Download and extract ZIP file locally
  • Upload contents of forum folder to your forum root

  • In the "Import Style XML File" section browse to "lightweight-vbulletin-3.8.7-style.xml" (extracted form the zip file)

  • Click the "Import" button.
  • Edit the header template and change the 2nd line to reflect the Style ID of your default style and location of your home page (forum.php or index.php) and text for the anchor (Default Style).

Thanks very much for the style, it's the best of all I tried to install.

Just a question: how to remove the display of the "cybchatbox" and the "adavanced forum statistics" in this style plz? These are making a little chao on the page.

Help!

Basically you need to wrap all of the plugin in this code:

Where 2, 3, and 4 are the styleids you want to disable the mod in. You can add ore remove as many as you want, just separate each with a comma. If there's only 1 you don't need the comma.

Only thing to look out for, if in the plugin there is the line:

I tried :

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

But it didn't work. (this style is 49)
Is the right code where I edited?


I got it!
I edited in "Cyb - Advanced Forum Statistics - CT" and "Cyb - ChatBox - CT" of the plugin manager, and it works!

Thank you so much! You are great! ^^

New question:
(aussi to BirdOPrey5)

I am using the Detect Mobile Device and Assign Style(product-mobdetect38.xml) of dartho, then, if I open the site with www.....php?stylei=49 in the IE, these plugins don't display, and le bouton "default style" works well.

but If I open the site in the safari of IPhone, mobile phone show again the plugins which I had disabled in the mobliestyle(styleid=49)......

So, how can I correct it, plz? In the code of plugin "Detect Mobile Device and Assign Style"?



resolved........by creating a plugin disable them.

Two minor fixes:

1) CSS fix on line 364 add .thread_dot_new to the list of classes, this fixes the background not being the correct color. The change is given below.

2) Add class="$thread[statusicon]" to the anchor tag of sticky threads so that they get bolded when unread posts are present.

Having the Post Thank You Hack working (and looking good) on the mobile style would be fantastic.

Those mods are for vb4 - this is for vb3. That being said, I have post thanks working on a 3.8 site with this style, I'll have a look at what I did ...

caveat: this may introduce other hacks into the lightweight style which use the postbit_end and postbit_control hooks
I can't find these last 2 edits in the postbit or postbit_legacy templates in the mobile theme.

Try this:

edit postbit and postbit_legacy templates, search for (which should be the very end of those templates):

Question

Just for curiosity I am looking for a lightweight style for our site but before we try this one I want to know a couple of things.

1. When a user visits our site with a smartphone will they automatically be reverted to the Lightweight style ?

2. We use tapatalk and when you visit our site with a smartphone the javascript will prompt the user to download the tapatalk client. If I install this style what will be the behavior then?

3. We also use a content server which we can use to redirect smartphone to this style but I wanted to know if there is something in this style that detects mobile devices?

Thanks

This is just a simple style/template - no javascript, plugins or smarts to see here.

So to answer your questions: no, no different, and no

Which style to use, this one or your other Mobile Style for 3.8?

We have a lot of members who use Tapatalk, but I don't like having Tapatalk dictate how things show up, not to mention the way they have their ads showing up, etc. I'd really like to look into implementing a mobile style. The only problem is that we use vba Dynamics for our classifieds section - I take it your style wouldn't be compatible with that. Would it be compatible with other solutions, like ProVB's advanced forum plugin:
http://www.provb.org/vbulletin-mods/...o&productid=11

Or maybe would it be better to just use the forums for the classifieds and use a couple of plugins like "thread thumbnails" (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=214755) and "extra threadfields" (http://www.provb.org/vbulletin-mods/...fo&productid=1) to make it more like our existing classifieds solution, then apply one of your mobile styles? I just want the most effective and easy to integrate solution that will work with mobile. It seems like it would be easier to move away from Dynamics, but maybe it would be easier to just style that solution. I don't know. Would love your advice.

Which style would be best to start with to have more of our content viewable in a mobile style? This one or your other Mobile Style plugin? We also have a lot of static vBa CMPS pages, will this work with those? Or will we have to do a bit of work for those?

Either style would pose the same challenges when implementing add-ons. For the most part, you just need to change templates for add-ons to be friendly in a mobile interface. Depending on the addon, they might even look OK enough to get away with, with no template changes.

Hi.

This style just stopped working on our 3.8.7 vB forum and we cannot see any errors.

Any suggestions on how to debug this?
