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: Apr 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.7 Rating: (31 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 245
Released: 18 May 2011 Last Update: 20 May 2011 Downloads: 1937
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
  • Go into your AdminCP->Style Manager->Download / Upload Styles
  • In the "Import Style XML File" section browse to "lightweight-vbulletin-3.8.7-style.xml" (extracted form the zip file)
  • If you are running a version of vbulletin other than 3.8.7, select Yes in "Ignore Style Version"
  • 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).

I think you'll need to edit the header template and change:

<div class="header" align="left"><strong>$vboptions[bbtitle]</strong></div>

to something like

<div class="header" align="left"><img src="mylogo.png" /></div>

and play with it from there ...

Just missing attachment uploads and my users will all be happy

Would also be nice if the CSS was made using the build in editor, rather than manually editing a file. Easier to hook into my CDN then as well.

Icons displayed on homepage

The images showing that the forums are closed for posting ("forum_old_lock-16.png" and "forum_new_lock-16.png") are not aligned properly on forum's homepage and also the link separating each forum title is missing (see the attachment).

Any idea how to fix this??

Ok, I believe I fix the issue by adding this code in the "lightweight.css.php" script...

Just a small question; would this lightweight skin work on the software version 3.8.5? Or should I update? I'm not sure if the builds are completely different or not.

It should work just fine on 3.8.5.

Thank you! However, I think you should use this DOCTYPE:

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

This DOCTYPE will change the default zoom value for mobile. So it's more suitable for mobile browsers.

by design it should go to the first new post.

if you want it to just go to the start of a thread, edit the threadbit template and search for and remove all occurences of goto=newpost&amp;

edit: Sorry, I did not read the directions properly. I didn't notice the option "Ignore Style Version." Again, thanks Dartho!
