PHP BB becoming Mobile Friendly

Post by aleppiek on Tue Aug 11, 2009 9:43 am

So I am very likely in the minority here, but a vast majority of my PilotNation browsing is done on my cell phone browser. Now I warn that I know nothing about programming, but is it possible that there is a simple plug-in that would allow there to be a mobile version of the site? I would love to be able to update live from games, but the pages just dont load neatly on my screen.

There is a plugin. It is, however classed under the DEV category, so I'm not sure how buggy it is. The administrators would have to install it on the site for us to use it. There are several versions, and I don't know which is the best implementation.

Unless somebody is petty savvy with HTML, it might be hard to get up and running and harder to maintain.

Maybe you should think about a better phone. Smile I find the sites that default to the mobile version annoying most of the time. The only way I can see the full PortlandPilots site is to first go to the mobile site and then link to the full site.

Another set of links to slow you down.


Or get a twitter account just for the games. If enough of us did it it might be fun.

no wifi. i'd be shocked if @PortlandPilots didn't tweet though, or if UP didn't bring down someone to do radio or live stats.
