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: 1938
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.

====================

I found a small bug... when you click on the "Register" button you can see duplicate login fields (please see the attached image).

One more thing... we allow unregistered users to post but it seems that they can not post by using the lightweight style (this was true i believe also with the previous mobile version). It wouldn't be a big problem itself if the submit reply button and the new thread button were disabled on the lightweight skin for unregistered users... but right now it gives unregistered users a wrong impression that they are able to post.

AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HARD WORK ON THIS NEW LIGHTWEIGHT STYLE... IT'S VERY NICE AND VERY USEFUL !!!

I'm loving it. Donation sent for Branding Free!

Made some customizations but never could have done it without this style to build off of.

Got it up and running, if my users don't find any bugs I will be removing the old mobile styles I have.

@brad - I have been unable to reproduce the issue you are having with duplication of login boxes. Could you check the templates to see if it's duplicated there?

Inregards to guest voting, wht type of human verification do you have for guest posts?

No plans for blogs, groups is partially implemented and may become fully implemented later on. I'm just focusing on getting forums right at the moment

Thank you dartho for the fast reply

UPDATE: Deleting duplicate login code from the "register" and "register_rules" templates solved the problem.


Regarding duplicate login boxes...

When I search the lightweight skin templates for this piece of code...


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

...I can find it in 3 templates:

1) navbar
2) register
3) register_rules

My other custom skins have the code only inside the navbar template.


Regarding to guest/ unregistered user posting... we use the vB Human Verificatin Manager (random question to prevent spam).

Suggestion to add the standard "border-radius" to the CSS for IE9 and presumably future browser compatibility.

Info here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6...r-radius-in-ie
(Note you don't need to declare 4 values for IE9, just one is needed like moz and webkit.)

Thanks for the update. Really stupid question here but how do you upgrade a style, must I use the 'Merge into style' option?

You rock. I'll be updating this today sometime. I'll just remove it and reinstall it since I didn't make any modifications. This time, however, I may add a "Today's Posts" to the navbar or replace the "New Posts" with it.

In the threadbit template, the line:

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

is it supposed to be

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

Just curios... Or are all sticky threads supposed to have the same class?
