Post subject: Mobile hack

Does anyone know anything about the Mobile online hack http://www.phpbbhacks.com/download/6131
The download does not contain any instructions and the support site says the support for phpBB2 version has been removed.

What I am wanting to know:-

Has anyone tried it or use it?
Do you have any install instructions or do you just drop the complete directory into your phpBB2 one?
Is it safe? When I went to look at the phpBB3 version demo I got a warning from "Web of Trust" that the site was unsafe.
Is there a better alternative? (If I am correct phpbbtogo only allows you to browse and not to log in and post.

Thanks in anticipation
Jim

If you download the zip, there is a "readme.html" file that shows how to install. Apparently this is not a GPL'd MOD (hack) as to enable the full features there was an annual license cost. Not sure what the status of that is since the author's web site no longer seems to offer phpBB2 support.

Thanks Dave,
I had extracted the "mo" directory but had not spotted the "read me" file.

If you get it installed I would be interested in hearing your feedback. Maybe even seeing a URL. icon_smile.gif

Before I install it Dave I am going to see what sort of enthusiasm there would be from my members.
I have installed functions such as "Chat room" that never gets used so I am loath to install anything else (particularly something that requires a paid for licence) if there is no interest in it. IT seems that what you download is a demo version and is missing some elements. You only get the rest of it when you have paid.

Also unsure if it will work with IM portal

It seems that a licence is only required for versions >1.6
Does anyone have a copy of any of the 1.6 revisions as that would be a way of testing it's working with the IM portal before installing a later and licensed version?

Dave.
I have now installed the mobile mod "Mobile on Line" complete with WURFL.
I have created a test account for you but obviously do not want to post details in open fora.
Can you please email me so that I might email you back with details as I do not have your email address.

Think we tried this MOD back in 2005. Decided we would rather take a different approach.
