For those of us without iPhones (and don't want to bother paying an extra 1500 yen/month to use the PC browser once in a while), is it possible that ITIL could set up a mobile style skin for cell phones?

This dude here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=174375&page=50) seems to have pretty straight forward instructions on setting one up for vBulletin 3.6+.

It doesn't look difficult, and I would offer to put it together but it seems that it requires pretty hefty admin privileges ;).

Why bother? the site is for bored people at work. Whos sad enough to check it when they are out and about?

Haha, you and I both know that 95% of the active users of this site can't pull themselves away, even at home -- pathetic, really. That being said, I like to keep up to date with stuff if I'm on the train and have nothing better to do -- so why not, I says.

The regular i-mode browser on my phone can view ITIL, with a few hiccups, but it would be nice to have a mobile version, since ITIL gets filtered at my work, and there's days where I don't have access to a computer.

Unfortunately it's not quite that simple. For some reason our copy of vBulletin isn't compatible with the mod that you specified, so I'll try and find one that works with it when I get a little bit of time.

Alternatively, you can try and wake Server up.

Yes,
I have a list of things for you to take care of.
One - This mobile access thing
Two - The identity of MOCO
Three - I was recently promoted to moderator of the articles forum, please action this post haste.
Four - If you could change it to auto-correct "shink" to "shinkansen" I (and many others) will sacrifice babies in your name.

Sankyu beri much.

Yes indeed. Let's pick up the pace here, ladies. This thing takes about 10 minutes to install if you know anything.

Has it ever occurred to you that maybe they just aren't doing it because they don't like you?

This is what I assume whenever anything I write falls on deaf ears.
Like instead of my suggestion of changing banned users "banned" title to a colour (something we can't do ourselves) They just got pissy and went "DO IT AND YOU GET A SEEING TO!"

mothy: lol VIPs were changing theirs to "banned" and it was hard to tell who was banned and who wasn't


Me?
Articles, baby, Articles.
And it looks like my updated credentials have not been actioned, Maybe DPV was just playing with my heart...:(

Get on it, and stop being lazy. It seriously takes 10 minutes to install and maybe 5 more minutes to debug.

Haven't you learned to live without it by now?

I recommend another 2 months without.

I do believe that BC and myself said that either of us would be willing to volunteer to set it up. It's not that hard.

A link to a page with details on how to download and install the mod would be fine

Installed. You can select it from the bottom from the styles chooser.

Once in the mobile mode you can select PC mode from the top navbar to return to the full site.

Let me know if you find any bugs.

1) I changed it to cell phone mode on the PC and now it won't change back. PC Mode link doesn't work.

2) I tried it on my cell phone and although the option is there, when I select it nothing happens. If I try to reload the page, it comes up in PC mode again.

Mine was directing me to styleid=1. When I manually entered styleid=2 in the URL it went back to normal PC mode.

It works great on the iPhone! Cheers!
As a minor cosmetic thing, where it posts "posted via mobile device", any way to make that a little bit bigger? i can't really read it.
Also how does vbulletin store which style you've chosen? cookies? am I going to have to keep switching back to mobile mode on the iphone or PC mode from the computer? I refreshed a few times whilst using the mobile theme on the iphone and it seemed to use the PC mode? (more curious than anything on this point)

I haven't tried switching to the phone mode on my PC cos well, it makes no sense, but I was able to switch between the two on the iphone without issue.

Is there a way to implement "First Unread Post" ?

It kinda sucks having to scroll through a ton of posts before I find the one I didn't read yet.

Well hallelujah, the mobile version is finally rolling. Told ya that it would take less than 10 minutes to implement.

I shall begin using and reporting bugs, stat.

Mobile site indeed looks great. HMan is happy! :)

Although that "newest posts" mark or something that Coollead was referring to would be nice.

Also, my keitai is 1024x480 pixels in resolution, which means that if the font is set in the stylesheet to small, it comes out really small on my browser. It's not a huge issue, but is there any way to set the font bigger or so that it uses the browser's default setting?

Since it's just a style it should just be a case of copying it from one template to another since it's all relative right?

for the font size issue? possibly. but, i havent looked at the code for it so I dont know how easy it would be to change the sizes. Hopefully it's css based and not hard coded in a billion places!

remind me to look at it later, I'm quite busy with the server move and work right now so it'll have to wait till later.

the unread post one as well i would assume.

I mean the whole style thing is template based right? CSS and PHP. Sooooooo, all you need to do is copy from one style to the other, theoretically anyway.

It's not like it's a pressing issue or anything, more curious than anything.
