Mobile Phone / iPhone / PDA Detection and Style Assignment
Mod Version: 1.0.1, by dartho (Coder/Designer) dartho is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2020 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.4 Rating: (10 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 302
Released: 28 Oct 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 2030
Supported Uses Plugins  

This add-on will detect most mobile phones, iPhones, PDAs and other mobile browsing devices and automatically for the user to a specific vBulletin style.

Release Information
1.0.1 Initial release for 3.8 ported over from 3.7 version

THIS IS IDENTICAL CODE TO THE 3.7 RELEASE!

I only re-released as soooo many people ask the question "is this OK for 3.8" You do not need to upgrade if you already have installed! However - should there be any changes in the future, it will likely happen here.

What can it do?
Detects most mobile phones and force the user to a specific style (users will not be able to select other styles from a mobile device with this add-on installed). If you have multiple styles installed which are optimized for small screen mobile devices, iPhones, WIndows Mobile devices you can assign a specific style to each of these groups.

Whilst designed with mobile device users in mind, you could also assign styles to self defined browsers. For example you can assign an alternative style to Internet Explorer users whilst Firefox users get the default style. You could also assign an alternative style to Google or Yahoo spiders.

Instructions:
0. Install styles which you wish to assign to Mobile/PDA/iPhone users - some links will appear at the bottom of this post
1. Download the product file
2. Install via Product Manager
3. Configure options via vBulletin Options, Mobile Device Detection (should appear at end)
4. Start browsing from your mobile device!
5. Click "Mark as Installed"

If upgrading from a previous 3.5 or 3.6 version, you will need to uninstall that and the install this one.

To uninstall simply uninstall the product - there are no database changes or additional files.

Styles released on vBulletin which you can use:
Dartho's Mobile, Cell, Phone, PDA, iPhone Style for vBulletin 3.7 (<-- yep, that's mine)
ElForro's iPhone / iPod Touch Optimized Style
Zachery's vB Lite Style
vBMechanics Mobile Alabama Style

Due to the stripped down nature of these mobile styles, you will find that most for 3.5 and 3.6 will work quite happily on 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 & 3.8 although additional features introduced in vBulletin in recent years such as Social Groups, Blogs and Photo Galleries will not show well on a small screen. All should display your actual forums well.

Running 3.8.7 PL3 Tried out this mod with the Dartho's style for a couple of months.

Going to disable this MOD because of a couple quirks and one bug:

Quirks:
1. We use PMs heavily on my forum, and there is a need to maintain the thread of the PMs as the conversation is ongoing. In other words, to maintain what was typed before in the PM as the members M back and forth.
With this tripped down version, seems no way to maintain the thread of the conversation - as PMs are sent back and forth, only what is newly typed is transmitted.

2. In threads, images do not appear right there embedded in the post. Rather, a link
[image]
appears that the person may click on to view.

3. Google ads do not appear.

Bug:
1. When viewing a post, if a person clicks to PM or view the profile of the poster, instead of that poster's profile coming up, the username of one of the members who is very early in the list alphabetically comes up
Aaaaaaua
instead of the username of the poster.

I need to install this plugin on an important forum.
On the test forum everything works properly . I have not found any problems for PCs and notebooks . Mobile device also detects correctly.

Can anyone noticed any undesirable changes in the operation of a forum?

Hi Dartho,

Thanks for creating this amazing plug-in.

It flawlessly redirects to our mobile version but whenever users try to select desktop style, it simply doesn’t work.

I believe this is because the plugin is forcing mobile users to use mobile theme only.

Is there anyway we can redirect users to mobile theme at first but at the same time allow them to switch themes as per their wish?

In terms of seo what should i do with archive instead? Should i turn it off and redirect 301 to full version?

Anyone?
