Thank you Sir.. :)

I found this reference "text-decoration: line-through;" in vbulletin.css for all styles including your lightweight one ...

Is that the one you're referring to?

Also, do I use the "Support Developer" button here to send you a PayPal payment? I think I sent you something for the previous version, but I'd like to do so with this version as well.

Regards,
Doug

Edit: Ok, I remarked out the phrase in the vbulletin.css for the lightweight style only as follows:

Quote:

.restore del {
/* Striking deleted phrases. */
/* text-decoration: line-through; */
}
However, the stickied threads shown in the pic still appear strick through?

You need to edit the file lightweight.css.php which was uploaded to your forum root

Tested using text-decoration: italic; but threads come out looking like regular textl, however, the good news is the strike-through text is gone now which is fine for us.

Sent you a donation through PayPal for your excellent work ... :up:

Still seem to have an oddity with sticky threads not showing with word "Sticky" like they do in your demo site. (see pic). I'm not sure what the two phrases titled "Normal Threads" and "Sticky Threads" are doing isolated on their own at the top and they don't seem to be clickable as collapsible boxes etc?

Regards,
Doug

ps: I asked this under your PDA detaction thread, but I thought I'd post here as welll. I have a 56kb dial-up users who complain the site is slow for them using a regular PC and browser, so I was wondering if this mod could be adapted to recognize a 56kb dial-up user and automatically present this excellent "Lightweight Style"?

I know our Google Analytics code reads data from someplace and shows me analysis of type of connect speeds used when accessing our site, so I think it's possible?

G'day Doug,
My bad - italic will not work, as it is not a possible value or text-decoration. If italic is the way you want to go, try making it font-style:italic;

Looks like you have a seperate normal and sticky threads hack installed which would explain that issue - point me to the add-on and I'll have a quick look when I get a chance.

A quick check of your site shows detection is working OK (for my device at least)

As for detecting dialup visitors - that's probably a little further outside my abilities than all this other stuff I hack my way through - not sure how one would go about such things - a timer perhaps to see how fast a random image loads and take a best guess?

Tried that and they still appear as regular text subject lines. Don't worry about it as the "strike through" was what I was trying to fix and it's fine now. ;)

Separate Sticky and Normal Threads by pdtan

Thanks.. would be great if it worked with his, or somehow remove his mod JUST from your style.

I'm not sure either, but I wonder if there's connection data that's available someplace and it's accessible, which would explain how Google is able to break out connections by speed including dial-up. :confused:

I know there are add-ons that figure out what kind of browser (ie: IE6, Firefox etc) that users are employing, so I bet it's part of that data set. No problem though. I'll perhaps post a general question in the discussion area when I get more time.

Thanks for you help ... :)

Doug

If I missed this somewhere, I apologize. Will the style automatically show up if someone logs in from a mobile device? Or do they have to select it?

^ This and also wanting to know if it works fully with the latest Vbulletin ?:confused:

dartho 04 Jan 2011 11:58

no and yes :)

No it doesn;t autodetect mobile devices see http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ghlight=mobile for detection and yes it is working with the latest version of vBulletin

Thanks for that, I installed it, was working fine but the "LightWeight Style Options" seems to be buggy for some reason, I couldnt geet that to work properly so I uninstalled the style for now...

Now all we need is the "Extra Options" to be fixed and so that users can change the style and vice versa. :D

nice work :)

res6cue 07 Jan 2011 04:05

Installed this morning, and my users absolutely LOVE it! Great job, especially when combined with the lsoptions and mobdetect mods! Nominated for MOTM!

PS - A suggestion would be to put a link to the mobdetect mod in the main post here, maybe under Addons with the lsoptions link. I had to read every post in this thread (not necessarily a bad thing) to find out about it, and I see people are still asking about that functionality.

Whoa, very slick

DaffyDuck 09 Jan 2011 10:50

Doesn't seem to be working on 4.1pl2 -- shows just text, but no CSS, graphical chrome, or anything.

Any fixes available?

dartho 09 Jan 2011 11:02

works fine under 4.1pl2. Sounds like you either haven't uploaded the CSS.PHP file to your forum root, or perhaps your server doesn;t support php short tags, in which case you should download the alternative CSS.PHP file available in the first post (or first reply to this thread as the case may be)
