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: 894
Released: 25 Aug 2010 Last Update: 16 Dec 2011 Downloads: 6218
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.

I've been scouring the web for days looking for a suitable 3.8.7 mobile style but pretty much everything is horrendous and our site is too large and customized to move to 4.X+

Would pay to have this done...

I found the following error for me:

When i do a "New Posts" search, the links for "Last page" are broken. Usually it should be something like that:

http://www.example.com/f99/thread-name-9999/index999.html

But it is something like that:

http://www.example.com/f99/thread-name-9999/index999Array.html

Of course the "Array" is the mistake and i guess there is something wrong in a template for the search, but i couldn't find where, what and why. I use the Style with vB 4.2.0.

Any Fix for that problem would be very helpful.

First, thanks for this awesome style. Donation sent. Second, is there a way to use CSS to resize images similar to how the Stylevar works for the default vB4 style?

The reason I ask is that this Lightweight style seems to load images full size briefly, and then they resize down to 200px. Sometimes this doesn't seem to happen smoothly, and on some phones, it results in wacky formating (horizontal scrolling, yuck).

The default style resizes to whatever you've set as image_max_size in the StyleVar prior to loading the image, which seems to work better. Any way to do something similar here?

Thanks again!

I solved my image resizing problem by adding this at the end of the aforementioned CSS file:

I have just spent an hour or so sorting this out and I think I have a solution. I think this only works if you have the lightweight style options hack as well.

The issue: Reply to thread still uses CKEditor. If you switch the template back to a simple textarea, as it was before, the quote isn't passed.

To fix:

Copy the contents of template editor_toolbar_off to editor_ckeditor.

This gives you the quote, but gives you all sorts of <br /> tags and other HTML stuff.

This issue is caused when the user has the WYSIWYG set, so we need to turn that off in the mobile style.

Add the following plugin:

Product: Lightweight Style Options
Hook Location: editor_toolbar_switch
Execution order: 5
PHP Code:

Give it a whirl, seems to have worked for me.
Thanks, that worked great for me. I don't use the Lightweight Style Options product, so I altered it as follows:

Product: Vbulletin
Name: Disable WYSIWYG for mobile style
Hook Location: editor_toolbar_switch
Execution order: 5

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

where X is the # for my mobile style

Another change I made was to put this for headinclude so the page doesn't autozoom during post edit or reply:

A a guess, it's to do with your header....have you altered the header template at all?
