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.

That looks like a vBulletin message which makes me think you have installed this style as a mobile style which has known issues. Can you view that same page in the vBulletin Mobile Style?

Yes Dartho, you're right!!! I view the same message in vB Mobile Style
I think that I did something wrong with template reverting after 4.2.1 update

No, it's vBulletin. For some reason they treat mobile and desktop styles differently and have different functions/features available. I think many are installing mobile styles under the desktop section so they still have access to all vbulletin functions, and then using 3rd party mobile detection scripts

Can I do something to fix?
I don't use vB Mobile Style. Uninstalling it can fix the problem or I have to do something else?

Thank you for your help

vB4 Lightweight Style by Dartho

We used Lightweight mobile style by Dartho for vBulletin 3.8.

We upgraded to vBulletin 4.2. Lightweight Style is listed as Incompatible.

The Default Mobile style looks horrible. We have icons in the board descriptions and they show up in vB4 mobile default style.

What should we do?

Download the Style again?

Try the vB3 to vB4 conversion tool?

Try to update the templates (not that I know how to do that)

Thanks!

installing vbsuper pm's does not allow pm's to be sent... thought this style was hard coded and no products should effect it?

Some hooks are in place, others aren't. If you search the templates for "hook" you'll find which ones are and can remove them if you need. In regards to the blank line bewteen 1st/2nd post, I couldn;t see that on your site or mine?
