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

vB Version: 3.8.7 Rating: (31 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 246
Released: 18 May 2011 Last Update: 20 May 2011 Downloads: 1949
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).

"Posted via Mobile Device"

Hi, Dartho!

Would it be possible to somehow edit the existing script to enable the "Posted via Mobile Device" feature?

Dartho,

This is a great feature - well done. Happy to donate once I get this sorted:

I want to give the style a red theme. Simple enough usually: just go to admincp -> style manager ->lightweight -> main css

and then change all the colours. Ive put red in everywhere and saved it but its still all blue when I look at the forums. Ive also replaced table widths with huge and tiny values to see if the stylesheet is updating but no movement. Is changing the colours possible?

Edit: Also, only admins seem to be able to use the style in a normal PC browser with styleid=3 (in my case 'lightweight').
I should note that Im running the vBulletin API style albeit it is currently disabled.

You need to edit the lightweigth.css.php file for CSS changes.

Also, only admins seem to be able to use the style in a normal PC browser with styleid=3 (in my case 'lightweight').
If only admins can use the style, that means you have not made it user selectable.

Hey dartho!

Thanks for this! We are currently testing at The UNIX and Linux Forums. We dropped the vB Mobile suite app and may just go with this skin. Thanks again!

BBCODE tags are critical for our site; but we can't get the scroll bar (horizontal scrolling across bottom) to work on mobile phones (it works find on a desktop).

Any idea?

Ah Ha!

I see that scrollbars are not currently supported on native iPhone and Android browsers!

The suggested "work arounds" are to use jQuery, for example see:

awsome template but I have a few questions. my site is located @ .com/vb but if you go to .com it goes to the vBadvanced CMPS with my default style is there a fix or work around? i wish there was a way to force anyone that went to .com to redirect to .com/vb.
also is there a way to remove the default style tab becuse It wont work with your mobile detect app unless there is a work around for that too
Thankyou
