Well I fooled and fooled with phpbbtogo and its looking real nice.. even opens to the screen size on my Android and checks to see if it is a handheld device connecting.. I am pleased.. I spoke to the guy from Mobile Online phpBB and he set up a test for me to play with.. his does allow for login and post while phpbbtogo does not.. has anyone worked that feature in?? If not I will go with the Mobile Online phpBB Pro version, but probably have to tweak it up tons for visuals..

I have not tried it. Will check it out!
I am very curious of what solutions folks in here are using for their sites on mobile phones/ pad's. Anyone?

happy new year!!! icon_biggrin.gif

HI,

I found a style named subSilver_mobile and used this as a base for creating a mobile template for my forum.

Instead of using the changes to includes/functions.php that come with the template I use Tera_WURFL for detecting users on mobile devices and serve them the mobile template.

Recently I made a mobile version for the rest of my site using jQuery Mobile.

I'm pretty pleased with the results of both parts.

Just in case anybody is interested here is a copy of subSilver_mobile.

What info exactly?

If you refer to something like a detailed description of what I did I'm afraid I wonīt be able to write that up.

It has been some time now, altogether was quite a complex operation and I didnīt take notes of what I did.
As Iīm busy with other things now I do not have the time to sit down and figure out everything in detail and write it down in a kind of MOD.

Resuming: I improved subSilver_mobile and replaced the regular expression in includes/functions.php that comes with that package with a similar call to Tera-WURFL, in the exact same spot in functions.php.
To be able to do so I had to install Tera-WURFL and find the simple code needed for my code to check for mobile devices and redirect those to subSilver_mobile template.

It's easy, but time-consuming.

Thanks for the tip Dogs. Ok so the challenge is to setup the functions.php or is it other files to edit? I did some digging on the Tera-WURFL site but didnt find anything. Mind share your functions.php? icon_wink.gif
I tried to setup an htaccess for redirecting browsers to an subdomain but it was pain. I gave it up.. I must try this. icon_smile.gif Next step is to make an osx and android app. icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you for the mobile template!! icon_biggrin.gif

In the subSilver_mobile you can find instructions for editing functions.php.

What that edit does is detect mobile devices and serve those the mobile template.

Instead of using the edit that comes with subSilver_mobile you can use the code Tera-WURFL uses to detect mobile devices.

In the following code you can see the commented-out code from subSilver_mobile and the working code for Tera-WURFL.
Code:
   $template_path = 'templates/' ;

// Begin Mobile version------------------------
//$user_agent = $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']; 
//$is_mobile = preg_match("/(up-browser)|(blackberry)|(windows ce)|motorola|symbian|palm|nokia|ipod|iphone|sonyericsson/i", $user_agent);
//if ($is_mobile) {
require_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/Tera-wurfl/TeraWurfl.php');
$wurflObj = new TeraWurfl();
$matched = $wurflObj->getDeviceCapabilitiesFromAgent();
if($wurflObj->getDeviceCapability("is_wireless_device")){
   $mobile = true;
   $template_name = 'subSilver_mobile';
   } else {
   $template_name = $row['template_name'] ;
   }
// End Mobile version------------------------
   $template = new Template($phpbb_root_path . $template_path . $template_name);


This bit is standard phpBB2 code
Code:
   $template = new Template($phpbb_root_path . $template_path . $template_name);


You can perfectly use the preg_match instead of Tera-WURFL. And you can change the user-agents in that regular expression to cover more or less devices. Use Google to find more info about user-agent detection.

For starters you can simply install subSilver_mobile, nothing else, and see what it's like.
Very easy.

If you dont like it can you simply delete the file in includes/functions and get back to as you were?


Secondly, how do you apply the patch?
