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: 893
Released: 25 Aug 2010 Last Update: 16 Dec 2011 Downloads: 6202
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.

Anyone know how I can fix this?

Thanks
You don't even have to search the thread for your answer, look at the post RIGHT above yours. wow!

I am wondering if there is a way to include the forum notifications in this style? I know it notifies on a new pm, but I also have notifications that show for new Group posts and when users are tagged/quoted.

On my poll results, instead of showing who has voted, it just says "array"

Any idea what might be wrong?

I've had a bit of a look at 4.2 and this style today. It will involve quite a bit of time for me to get it working under the Mobile master style. Or I have to remove portions of it. It could be just the one thing I looked at, but I couldn;t find how to add a pagenav to the thread bits in forumdisplay.

It should be take significantly less time to make it work as previously as a non-mobile style.

PLease post your issues when installed as a full style and i"ll look at them

If i want to include a dbtech Shoutbox to the mobile page just after then header, how to do that?
Adding the code {vb:raw show.vbshout_instance1} where instance1 is the varname of the SB doesn't do any modification to the lightweight style. Can anyone guide me on this?

Gah, I'd have to do that on the default mobile one, too. I was hoping someone had them done already.

It seems to work for me but new posts. when clicking on the link it redirects to fullsite.

I used to be able to test the mobile site from my pc but now it redirects to the fullsite, same with my blackberry it doesn't redirect to the mobile site but iphone/ipod still does.
