Lightweight Style for Small Screen Devices (cell phone, iphone, mobile, android)
Mod Version: 1.0.3, by dartho (Coder/Designer) dartho is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2022 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.1.8 Rating: (96 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 895
Released: 25 Aug 2010 Last Update: 16 Dec 2011 Downloads: 6287
Not Supported Re-usable Code  

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.

How do you get preview reply to work? I'm failing so far.

Edit: Nevermind, not really sure how, but I got it to work copying bits and pieces of other style templates.

One thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to insert inline image attachments with this style.

Do you mean "inline" as in inserting an image, such as , in the middle of of a post ?

Yeah, I can't seem to get the image to insert into the body of the message after it's uploaded...

I've had a bit of a look, and I don't think there is any easy way to do that without bringing in the full ckeditor ...

Thanks anyway...

On another note, I've noticed that line breaks aren't preserved when quoting. Any fix for that aside from disabling the WYSIWYG editor?

Ok you need to create a new plugin at newreply_start. I called mine Line Break Fix which helped me locate it years later.

Add this code:

I saw your earlier post about that, and it works... but then my checkbox for AME convert URLs to videos doesn't show up because it kills the newpost_disablesmilies hook.

That's a weird one....I don't have any AME options showing anywhere (although I do use AME) so haven't run into this.

I can't understand why it would affect code run at another hook. It's just an if conditional, which is closed off. So whether it returns true or false, it ought not to affect any other hooks.

Could it be that the AME checkbox only shows on the WYSIWYG? That would explain it, as you've turned the WYSIWIG off with my code.....though only in the mobile style. Shouldn't affect a normal style.

Slightly baffled, I'm afraid.

Took me awhile to figure it out, but AME adds the convert URLs to video checkbox by looking for the newpost_disablesmilies hook, if present, it injects the checkbox before the smilies checkbox... and from what I can tell the newpost_disablesmilies hook only gets called in the WYSIWYG editor.

I'm working on trying to change it to something else, like attachments... maybe you could help.

Like this code here works, but I want it to show up after the attachments box, not before it... which is what it currently does. (note newpost_attachment was newpost_disablesmilies until I changed it).

Trying to PM you about hiring you for a custom version of this skin but your PM box is full.

Can you contact me with a way I can get a message to you?
