No, it's just different. As nice as it is I wouldn't recommend using it, it will screw up any mobile style you might try to use. It was great in its day but if you are going to have mobile users, skip it.

It's because there are no templates for the article forum on the mobile style. The mod was created before the mobile style even came with 4.x.

I made a plugin that disables the mod on the mobile style so the content is visible like normal threads and posts.

The only other option is creating custom mobile templates.

the plugin code I wrote was:


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

hook: globala_bootstrap_init_start

the 2 is the styleid of the mobile style and the 4 is the forumid that was the Articles forum.

Yes, I type, in plugin, my forum ID of article forum (change the 4 for my forum ID).

In other question, when create a plugin, create for vbulletin or article?

And order to run, 5?

Thank you very much!!

the forum id (4) in my plugin code needs to match the forumid you specified as the Articles forum.

And the styleid (2) needs to match the forumid of the mobile style.

Adjust both numbers to match the values you use on your forum.

In the first time, my apologies for the delay in my reply, but this last month, I was go out for holiday.

Well, I attach a screenshot, because I continue with the problem, and I don't know how are the problem

In this image, view my mobile style id:
Are the id: 7



In this other, what are my forum for Articles:
Are "Documentos / Manuales":



In this other, the forum id of articule forums:
Are 76:



And this last, my plugin:


With the forum id and mobile style id.

But, not works, when in my mobile, access to articule forum, appears redirecting in bucle mode.

I don't view what are the problem...

Thanks in advanced.

Any place in this mod to collapse the categories at the left? I am trying to find it in templates where I might do this but having no luck. I have like 100 categories that need to be trimmed otherwise the list at the left is way too long.

Any help on a quick alteration would be appreciated!!

Thanks!
