Mobile Phone / iPhone / PDA Detection and Style Assignment
Mod Version: 1.0.1, by dartho (Coder/Designer) dartho is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2020 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.4 Rating: (10 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 301
Released: 28 Oct 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 2042
Supported Uses Plugins  

This add-on will detect most mobile phones, iPhones, PDAs and other mobile browsing devices and automatically for the user to a specific vBulletin style.

Release Information
1.0.1 Initial release for 3.8 ported over from 3.7 version

THIS IS IDENTICAL CODE TO THE 3.7 RELEASE!

I only re-released as soooo many people ask the question "is this OK for 3.8" You do not need to upgrade if you already have installed! However - should there be any changes in the future, it will likely happen here.

What can it do?
Detects most mobile phones and force the user to a specific style (users will not be able to select other styles from a mobile device with this add-on installed). If you have multiple styles installed which are optimized for small screen mobile devices, iPhones, WIndows Mobile devices you can assign a specific style to each of these groups.

Whilst designed with mobile device users in mind, you could also assign styles to self defined browsers. For example you can assign an alternative style to Internet Explorer users whilst Firefox users get the default style. You could also assign an alternative style to Google or Yahoo spiders.

Instructions:
0. Install styles which you wish to assign to Mobile/PDA/iPhone users - some links will appear at the bottom of this post
1. Download the product file
2. Install via Product Manager
3. Configure options via vBulletin Options, Mobile Device Detection (should appear at end)
4. Start browsing from your mobile device!
5. Click "Mark as Installed"

If upgrading from a previous 3.5 or 3.6 version, you will need to uninstall that and the install this one.

To uninstall simply uninstall the product - there are no database changes or additional files.

Styles released on vBulletin which you can use:
Dartho's Mobile, Cell, Phone, PDA, iPhone Style for vBulletin 3.7 (<-- yep, that's mine)
ElForro's iPhone / iPod Touch Optimized Style
Zachery's vB Lite Style
vBMechanics Mobile Alabama Style

Due to the stripped down nature of these mobile styles, you will find that most for 3.5 and 3.6 will work quite happily on 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 & 3.8 although additional features introduced in vBulletin in recent years such as Social Groups, Blogs and Photo Galleries will not show well on a small screen. All should display your actual forums well.

That would depend on what you are trying to fix? This template edit removes the CMS content and replaces it with a link direct to forums.

"users will not be able to select other styles from a mobile device with this add-on installed"

Do you have plans to add the ability to change this like on Google mobile style vs regular?

I made the edits as posted on a fresh install with no otehr addons and it worked as described.

I'll need more information in order to be able to help. A URL is always a good start, possibly admincp admin access to edit styles also

dartho,

Thank you for your hard work.

I reviewed my install and realized that i edited the wrong style.

Works great.

Only thing i noticed is a big gap under the header before it actually list the forums.

I would guess the gap is being created by another add-on you may have - do you have advertising or similar?

So this works on 4.0.2? Along with the style you made for 4.0?
