I Need a Mobile Style for phpBB2

Filed under: phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 7:49 am CommentsComments (2) 

I recently joined the 21st century and purchased a smart phone (a blackberry). I’ve been using it for quite a few things, including browsing the web, posting on blogs, and even using my phpBB2 boards. It works okay, but it would work a lot better with an appropriate style.

I’ve done some googling, but if anyone has a link or suggestion for a source for a decent style for phpBB2 that caters to mobile users, that would be great. Links accepted. :)

I have seen some folks that include code that forces users into a style choice based on the browser string… for what it’s worth I don’t intend to do that. Instead I will take a domain like www.example.com and supplement it with mobile.example.com. That way the user makes the choice rather than me. If they want to browse the full board on their mobile device, I will let them. If someone wants to browse the “slim” version from a regular device, why stop them? I haven’t worked out the details on how that will work yet, but I will be sure to post them here when I do.

But first I need the template / style. 8-)
