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.

Thank you for providing this lightweight style, and keeping it supported. Vbulletin should of had their "premium" mobile style available to license holders well before 4.1.11

For the time being that's what I'm using because of how it handles cms articles, where as this style doesn't.

I just upgraded from vb 4.1.10 to 4.1.11, lightweight style is still running great in it... Although I wasn't exactly just how to handle the template merge issues (I reverted a couple, then I figured I shouldn't have done that), so I just reinstalled the style to make the warnings go away, lol

Dear Dartho,

Thank you very much to help me to remove the underline properties of the text.

I have 2 questions more:

I installed the new version, and I can't see the "PC Mode" button, only appears the button "Log out" is normal ?

second, where or how can I put the adsense codes to see the banners up the navbar and in footer ??

In the new 4.1.11 version if you configure the new "google adsense"option in Ads, appears banners in all templates with the same size.

I want to do the same but without using this option, because this options , no difference between PC and mobile templates. I want to put the mobile adsense code for mobile in a part of this nice style....

here is an example:



I hope I explained well...

Best regards, thanks in advance

Add the following immediately above:

Then go to end of template and paste in:

Hi dartho,

Can this be employed for the vBSEO_like button?
