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).

For some reason.. when I view the template and enable the template for others on the forum, it starts to increase server load... I'm not sure what is causing the trouble.

I have these plugins..
Cyb - Advanced Forum Statistics (I disabled for the template)
Cyb - ChatBox (I disabled for the template)
Post Thank You Hack
vB Ad Management
vBadvanced CMPS (I tried to disable but couldn't figure out how for this template)

And a few other plugins but I don't think they interfere with anything.

Could having any of the above plugins running with the template cause issues?

Why would server load increase with the template?

Any ideas?

Installed it here and no noticable change - if anything the values inside AdminCP decreased!

Have you tried disabling Hooks via the config.php file temporarily to make sure it's not a conflict with a modification?

DIsabling Hooks in config.php will turn off all modifications. If your site has features that depends on add-ons then yet those features will break.

The default forum features will continue to work.

I did not notice any increased load with this style. If anything load should decrease as less images need to be served.

As others have said, increased server load seems a very unlikely effect of installing this style. Could it just be coincidence?

edit the lightweight.css.php file, search for "text-decoration: line-through" and remove/modify to your preference.

Thanks a lot for the great style.

Just a little problem when I add youtube link, the video looks like that:



Is there any way to get rid of the extra: https://?

The problem happens with post reply template but not with quick reply!

Thanks

Change 38 to the styleid of your mobile style.

Yo can set absolute heights and widths if you prefer, I am calculating it as a fraction of my set values which words well for me. You can experiment with the exact numbers to find what works best for you.
Tried it but still not working when surfing the forum from my mobile phone but works only when using my laptop!

How can I change /2.3 into px?

should it look like that:

$ameinfo['height'] = round($ameinfo['height']/150px);
$ameinfo['width'] = round($ameinfo['width']/200px);

Thanks

Both on Chrome & Opera Mini on Android 6 & 4 The "New Thread" button gets broken up into two rows if there exists several pages of post on the forum section you view.
Anyone got some fix for that? (See attached picture for example).
