Lightweight Style for Small Screen Devices (cell phone, iphone, mobile, android)
Mod Version: 1.0.3, by dartho (Coder/Designer) dartho is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.1.8 Rating: (98 votes - 4.82 average) Installs: 894
Released: 25 Aug 2010 Last Update: 16 Dec 2011 Downloads: 6224
Not Supported Re-usable Code  

A lightweight *forum only style aimed at small screen devices such as Windows Smartphones, Nokias and even iPhones. It has VERY low bandwidth requirements - 15 times less on my site - 20K as opposed to 300K for forumhome.

*forum only - I have done a very small amount of rough work on CMS templates, a simple single column CMS *could* be created to work with this style without too much effort. However I am not sure if you can have a different CMS layout dependent on which style you are using?

This is an update to the mobile style I have previously released.

The changes are predominantly aesthetic to take advantage of larger screens.

It is also much easier to change colour schemes by editing the commented CSS file.


Demo: http://vbdev.org/forum.php?styleid=7

This is a a lightweight style and as such has much reduced functionality/information over the default vBulletin style.

Install instructions:
  • Firstly, if upgrading, I recommend installing this as a new style rather than overwriting your previous install. This way you get to test it first without trashing your existing style.
  • BACKUP YOUR EXISTING lightweight.css.php FILE IF YOU HAVE CSS CUSTOMISATIONS
  • Download ZIP file
  • Unzip to a local/temp directory
  • Edit lightweight.css.php file to customise colours if required
  • Upload contents of the upload directory in the zip file folder to your forum root.
  • Install style XML via Style Manager in your ADMINCP
  • **Install and configure "LightWeight Style Options"
  • See post 2 for a FAQ
  • Click "Mark as Installed"
  • Test it out
  • Leave a rating
  • Leave feedback
  • Enjoy checking your site from your mobile phone without the need to pinch/zoom/wait etc...
Version Control:
1.0.0 - 25 AUG 2010 - Initial Release on vBulletin.org
1.0.1 - 26 AUG 2010 - Fixed "Mark All Forums Read" link in Search results. Released Lightweight Style Options to customise this
1.0.2 - 21 MAR 2011 - Updated to 4.1.2, removed short tags from CSS, fixed some issues discovered since last release, added some stuff.
1.0.3 - 16 DEC 2011 - Updated to 1.0.3, tried to fix all known issues. Nothing new. If you have updated your site as bugs have been found, probably no need to upgrade. But if you're upgrading your site from to 4.1.9, might be worthwhile.
1.0.3a - 16 DEC 2011 - remove test ad hook code accidently left in postbit_legacy template
Branding Free:
The style is free to use. However I ask that you keep links in the footer. If you want to remove them - send me a donation of an amount you can afford, or that you think is fair/reasonable, it's up to you how much.

How to add those templates?

I reinstalled as mobile because when i installed as normal, it showed activity stream page as default page.
But on my default-computer style, i deleted activity stream Tab.
It doesn't even exist, so i have no idea why i got activity stream as default home-page on lightweight style.

Update: i completely deleted activity stream, and reuploaded as normal-no-parent.

I'm working with trying to get the notifications on the Lightweight theme.

I pulled out the following code from the default theme and pasted it on to the lightweight navigation bar. It comes up but it doesn't look the same way. Anybody have any suggestions on what I might be missing?

<vb:if condition="$notifications_total">
<li class="popupmenu notifications" id="notifications">
<a class="popupctrl" href="usercp.php{vb:raw session.sessionurl_q}">{vb:rawphrase your_notifications}: <span class="notifications-number"><strong>{vb:raw notifications_total}</strong></span></a>
<ul class="popupbody popuphover">
{vb:raw notifications_menubits}
</ul>
</li>
<vb:else />
<li class="popupmenu nonotifications" id="nonotifications">
<a class="popupctrl" href="usercp.php{vb:raw session.sessionurl_q}">{vb:rawphrase your_notifications}</a>
<ul class="popupbody popuphover">
<li>{vb:rawphrase no_new_messages}</li>
<vb:if condition="$show['pmmainlink']"><li><a href="private.php{vb:raw session.sessionurl_q}">{vb:rawphrase inbox}</a></li></vb:if>
</ul>
</li>
</vb:if>

Dartho whats the news on releasing the newer version of this style? I think we might have to switch back to this as most members dont like the vB mobile and also since it doesn't work with most phones either(something I didn't notice previously :P

Just a minor bit edit to the CMS style, looks great with the mobile style. If he doesn't have the time to work on a fully fledged CMS theme then he could include it if he wants.

I think You will have to just create a new default / parent style then delete this and the old style and just reinstall the style, that should fix most issues I think it has some minor issues with 4.2 though.

Have you installed the style as a parent in the "mobile style" section?

Install it with no parent in the normal styles and your polls etc will all work!

Darthos,
I'm having the same issue with 4.2
When I click on the users online link to see what users are doing.
it just shows Array under the Username- - Last Activity table.

But on the forumhome, it shows what users are online.

I'm looking to hire a dev to make notifications work with this style. Would anybody be willing to split the cost of hiring a dev to do it? Getting ready to get quotes on it

For anyone that is using the latest patch, you will have to fix init.php as vbulletin conveniently forgot to patch their own patch......

Example Vb Version - 4.1.10 patch level 3, requires this fix again in init.php
