A version for 3.7 can be found HERE

A super light style designed for Mobile Phones - use in conjunction with THIS or THIS modification to redirect mobile phone users to this theme.

This is a work in progress, and any and all feedback is greatly appreciated - I will do my best to act on bugs and suggestions.

Check (not my site) from a mobile device to see how it looks or you can visit via an emulator HERE

Whilst this doesn't have ALL functionality of vBulletin default, it does allow browsing forums, replying to posts, creating new topics and sending/receiving PMs.

I'm new at this, be kind.

Version History
1.00 - Initial Release
2.00 - Validates Strict XHTML 1.0 on
Added PM notification, fixed new reply, new thread, new PM to look better. Can edit posts. Added Logout and also an "Up" menu which will take you to the parent forum of where ever you currently are. Images in posts are replaced with a link to the image - unfortunately this meant I had to do teh same to smilies which all now show up as :-) (which is a link to teh smilie itself). It is now approaching a fully functioning skin - not sure what else you would want to do from a mobile phone/PDA. A few small bugs fixed too.
2.01 - Added viewing thread subscriptions, who's online (both only for logged on members) and quick reply
2.02 - Quick reply for logged on members only
2.03 - fix a validation issue, added "mark forums read" to forum home
2.04 - Internal release
2.05 - added mark as read to 'new posts' added 'sub' (Subscribed threads) and 'online' (who's online) footer navbar forum name in post title (as link) fixed a few things.
2.06 - Page numbers appear in thread bits
- UserCP page, with access to PMs, Subscribed Threads, Edit Signature, Edit Options (which includes changing view from oldest first to newest first
- Basic MOD options added - can delete posts and threads (and undelete also)
- Remember me added to login in footer (duplicate login screens removed
- I should probably test this latest version more extensively and re validate it, but thought you wouldn;t mind a pre-release

2.07 - Added requests, revalidated STRICT XHTML on If you have modified your existing install of this, I suggest you backup the style first before upgrading with this new version just in case you want to roll back.
2.08 - Remove backlink from FORUMHOME
2.09 - updated version numbers on templates to 3.6.9
2.10 - added securitytoken field to all forms

A Spanish translation can be found in post # 200 HERE

Install Instructions
Unzip and upload the wireless.css to your forum root.
Import the XML as a new style WITH NO PARENT.

Upgrade Instructions
Unzip and upload the wireless.css to your forum root (overwriet existing).
Import the XML and merge with existing. Alternatively you could delete the existing mobi style and re-upload fresh.

Keywords: Mobile, Cell, Portal, Mobi, Light, PDA, Phone

Screen Shots - Don;t be put off by the colours, these are all very easily changed by editing the CSS file. If you need help, just ask. I did these from a desktop browser with the window resized to 240px wide - to get a proper idea of the look, use the emulator link mentioned above. It looks MUCH better from an actualy small screen device!

How to hide a style from style chooser
This template edit will allow you to 'hide' a style from the Style Chooser so users can't select a specified style.

does this style work with all versions of 3.6 or just 3.6.10? and do you have to use the mods to direct cellphone users or will it work without that?

should work with all 3.6 versions. It's just a style - if you want any 'smarts', you'll need to look at other add-ons.

Excellent style. Loads super fast. Rated 5 star & marked as installed (along with your mobile detection -> custom skin hack). Thanks for sharing, Dartho.

One question : Our users prefer to have the attachment option available. Now, your skin doesn't display attachments at all. Is it possible to add a link to the attachment (at the right place in the post)? Thus, the skin will still load quickly and those who want to see the photo attachment in a post, can click on the link to have the attachment open up.

Attachments were addressed in later versions which may still work under 3.6


I'd install these as new styles and test first!

Hi Dartho,

The mobile auto-detect hack does not work with this hack?

If I leave the mobile auto-detect on (from this hack), and display the style chooser from the "Extend and Customise "Mobile" Style Options" hack, it is not possible to change styles. Whatever style you choose, its only the mobile style that loads.

Just wanted to make sure I am getting this correctly.

They work together as such, but the mobile autodetect hack overrides all others as far as changing styles go so if you use both there is no point placing a link to your default style

Thanks Dartho.

So, just to confirm : If I have the mobile autodetect hack, there is no point in offering the style chooser on the mobile skin. The style chooser will get over-ruled anyways? That is, the mobile autodetect hack will continue to show the forum in the mobile skin ONLY.

And why is this option available in the "Mobile Style Options" Hack?

What is your Mobile style?
Which style do you display to mobile device users?
If its not going to offer a style automatically to mobile users (like the auto detector does), what is the purpose of this option in the adminCP?

This style is not compatible with the "Mobile Options" addon

Posting here is likely causing confusion. Please post in the correct thread for the add-on or style you are questioning and I'll answer there as I do not know what version of which you are attempting to use.
