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: Feb 2020 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.1.8 Rating: (98 votes - 4.82 average) Installs: 894
Released: 25 Aug 2010 Last Update: 16 Dec 2011 Downloads: 6229
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.

hello..

thanks for this wonderful mobile style, but i found something strange after install it.

the image in the post wont show up, after viewing the source code, i found like this:


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

the <a href> dont have a closing </a>, so every text after the image become a hyperlink.

i think it should be <img src="">

is this a bugs?

thanks

Sorry - I left some replacement variables in teh style by accident. You can use the new version I just put up, or manually remove the replacement variables.

This keeps getting better and better, thanks dartho!

One issue I see.. when adding attachments, the 'close window' buttons don't appear to do anything. I have to 'Back' out to previous screen.

It's a difficult one - diffrent browsers do different things (as you already know from teh default browser/firefox browser differences) . You could change the the action of the "close this window" to go back rather than try and close...

I Installed this and followed the directions, as best I can tell. Why does mine look like this?


As you can see before the user is logged in, there is a gradual slant. Also, there are no lines/bars/colors/etc.

Once the user is logged in, the slant goes away, but it still looks nothing like your screenshot.

I admit I do not know what I am doing, so I may have done something wrong.

My site is www.WestTexasForums.com. I am on vB4.1.2 Thank you!
