I do about 50% of my viewing the Mane from my MDA. Recently I’ve been viewing it with signatures, avatars, and pictures disabled. This seems to work great but I was thinking the other day that there has to be a vBulletin hack that auto detects PDA’s/Phones and switches to a default style. Kind of like what ESPN and Google have. I did a little searching and I found a couple things. There is a mobile device style assignment
hack that auto detects that you are browsing from your mobile device. It works with this style
. If you want to see what it looks like click here
I normally get average downloads per page on the mane around 300-400 kb, with this style the average was 100-150. This increased the speed of the forums immensely with GPRS.
Just a thought….
Here is a shot of my phone running that other forums page with the style implemented.
