  • Neither. It's a style.

            I think that's intentional, actually. I made a number of tweaks to the template myself, just based on having different aesthetic preferences.
            • Added in "New Posts" (getnew) "Latest Posts" (getdaily) and "Search" links to the logged-in header (after the PM notice).
            • Removed the "Thread/Thread Starter," "Last Post," and other column headers (which didn't seem to connect to anything and took up a lot of space).
            • In the search template (such as "Latest Posts"), instead of "Username) Thread Title" I used "-Thread Title (Username)" and changed the username from the thread starter to the latest poster.
            • Put a link next to the header/forum title to switch back to the "Full" version (i.e. normal skin).
            I haven't been able to get the moderation features to work, and the PM interface and advanced search screen aren't "scaled down," so that may be what was affected in the upgrade from 3.0.x to 3.5.x, but to browse and get around, it's great.
            Should work okay according to that but not perfect.

                    Wow, I was editing the other then saw your post, thanks for saving me time!!!

                      Also for everyone who want browser autodetection and dont want to modify vBulletin scripts - here is instruction how to add autodetect plugin (thanks to vBulletin team for hooks):

                      1. Go to admin area "Plugin System/Add new plugin"

                      2. Fill in form here:
                      - Product: "vBulletin"
                      - Hook location: style_fetch
                      - title: "WAP auto detect" or whatever sounds good for you
                      - PHP code:



                      Enable plugin and enjoy
                      Works perfectly. I wonder where this guy compiled his Mobile Browser list?

                      • I looked at the couple sites posted here using this style, and including mine, when viewing from my blackberry, the "old" and "new" tags show up as a 100% and takes a whole line by itself, then the forum name shows up underneath it, instead of showing old as a small square, then the forum name.

                        Any ideas?

                          on many BBs there are 2 or 3 browsers with different features etc
                          Did you try the others ?

                          • Yeah, I tried all the emulation modes, and all the settings. So does it show normally on Windows devices then?

                            • Has anyone noticed that you can only type about 30 or so characters and then you get an exception fault in the browers? I used the other mobile style that I was originally using, and it works just fine.
