This theme will make it much easier for these users to browse your forum... and best of all – its completely free.

The plugin provided will switch your site to use ths theme into action whenever a user one one of these devices accesses your site. It's completely transparent and doesn't affect any other users. You're also free to modify this theme however you wish for your own use (e.g., by adding mobile ads, etc.)

I shouldnt need much testing. Everything seems to be going smoothly. Thanks though!

Here's a screenshot from inside a thread (I borrowed posts and avatars from a thread on this forum ;) )

You tap a post to quote it. (Unless you turn quoting off with the button at the top so that you can follow links in posts)



I'm still thinking of how and where I can implement page numbers

Wow impressive. I got a iPod touch so if you got a URL I'd love to see this in action(I may even hack code to automatically switch to this theme if safari mobile is detected).

Very nice! I've been waiting for this.
One more reason for me to upgrade to SMF 2.0 :)
Howto: Connect SMF to Twitter and/or Facebook (no coding or mods required!)

I'm going to write a plugin that will do that. It should be very simple.
I'm done with all the HTML and CSS right now I'm working on the PHP and everything else.

Here's a shot of the login template.



and some more:

I just realised I hadnt included the time the message was sent/posted.  Don't worry the final version will have that.

I'm not sure what you mean!

Anyway I should be done with this theme on time. (I originally said within a week).

I'll release it as a version 0.9 then get feedback from people and fix any bugs (there shouldn't be m/any) before releasing the bugfree version 1.0

Then I'll be working towards a version 2.0 with more features, and more integration with the iPhone.

HOWEVER, I never want to break the simplicity of the theme, and I don't think this will project will ever have support for the admin CP.
I'm considering support for moderation actions like locking and deleting, but apart from that, do you really need to edit features and create new boards from an iPhone?!

Sorry for being a little late. My Macbook died on me and I had to reinstall everything. But I'm back on track now. Hopefully I'll have this ready for you guys by this weekend, if not earlier.
Also, if you have anything to suggest let me know!

p.s. the 3.0 update looks like it won't affect anything I'm doing here so  :D

The version in theme-info.xml is SMF's not theme's, so it should be SMF 2.0 RC 1. I did that and re-packaged it and then it was working fine, great job! I"ll dig into this as soon as possible.
