Make the forum Mobile

Postby dwagner » Thu May 13, 2010 11:30 am

Hey,

I was wanting to talk to the forum administrator about make the RMDRA forum accessible from mobile devices, i.e. BlackBerry, iPhones, etc. I am an IT guy that has experience with web development, and I would be willing to help out with this - if you think members would be interested in accessing the forum from their phones.

Let me know!
Thanks,

David

I visit many sites from my BB that are using a mobile version and its great. I think that phpBB has an add-on for this type of thing.

Yes there are addon scripts that would allows us to access the forum using apps from tapatalk, etc.
Thanks,

From the program announcement: http://www.phpbb.com/about/press/

phpBB Launches Next Wave of Social Networking and Forum Features
Worldwide launch of phpBB Version 3.0 and the seventh anniversary of the most widely used open source collaboration system.

..... This release includes enhanced collaboration features, better security and delegated administration features, extended support for open source and commercial database management systems, and optimisation for mobile devices and search engines.

.... Among the new features announced today, phpBB has been specifically optimised for the mobile market.

....“The mobile Web is a key component for every 2008 Web strategy and phpBB is a perfect fit for the growing mobile collaboration market.”


phpBB seems to think that mobile device access is built into the product.

Since it currently works on the iPhone and BlackBerry with the latest software version, I don't feel that this is a necessary addition given the associated risk and the additional management that will be required moving forward.

My thought is.... I like the idea, and I have a web phone as well, but let's just let the volunteers who upkeep the forums ride and not worry about making changes to accomodate a few who may check it mobiley. I think they have more pressing issues such as trail upkeep right now. :thumbsup:

I'd just like to give a big :applause: :nworthy: to the mods that curently patrol and upkeep the forums, they run much speedier now!

Thank you dirtyboy et al!

By the way, for those with iPhones, there is an app that you can download called Forums Pro which works on the forum - I am using it right now. This app allows you to access the forum with a native iPhone app just like your mail or calendar app.
Thanks,

David

The mobile versions are just more condensed and kind of strips the "extras" off of forums.
