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

vB Version: 4.1.8 Rating: (98 votes - 4.82 average) Installs: 895
Released: 25 Aug 2010 Last Update: 16 Dec 2011 Downloads: 6248
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.

If you wanted to make this simpler, and don;t mind going into debug mode on your site, you could edit the Option Code for Mobile Style boxes in AdminCP so that all styles (both mobile and standard) show up and then you could replace the styleid numbers in the plugin above with $vbulletin->options['mobilestyleid_basic'], $vbulletin->options['mobilestyleid_advanced'] and $vbulletin->options['styleid'] then if you changed styles down the track you wouldn;t need to edit the plugin by hand. You would still need the above plugin to make it work.

To do this change the Option Code to:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Superb! I know, many will benefit from this... Do I add the code onto the above code and look like:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

?

Thanks for your prompt response

No - you would need to put your site into debug mode, then go into your vbulletin options in AdminCP where you choose the style settings and click on the edit link next to where you select the mobile styles and change the Option Code in there

I don;t use that add-on. Have you asked them what requirements are?

So they told you the same thing again? Did you let them know that adding that hook didn't appear to work for you? If not, you may want to do so.

They cannot tell further about it. Only the coder of the style can work.
