    Default Wireless Version of VHLinks?

    Brett:

    I asked this about a year ago, but thought I'd revisit it. Is there any thoughts to providing a wireless version of the VHLinks Forums that can be read on a Smartphone (such as the PalmOne Treo) or a Wireless PDA?

    I recall you mentioning that there was not a way to deliver UBBThreads to a wireless format, but I do know that vBulletin does have a capability to format the formums to a low-bandwidth, small screen format that would support a wireless device. For instance, TreoCentral.com uses vBulletin for their forums and they have both a PC and a wireless version available.

    I have a Treo 600 and would love to access the Links wirelessly!

    Just as a follow-up, this wouldn't require any additional connectivity to the 'Net and minimal extra bandwith since you'd be pushing 'lite' versions of the forum pages instead of the full bandwith versions. You might even save a little of your overall bandwith if a few heavy users shift to the wireless version instead of the full version.

    Most sites simply store these 'lite' php pages in a subdomain or directory off the main site and the existing web server serves them up. Check out treo.treocentral.com or www.smithtown-ny.com/wireless/ for examples of how this looks. You can even view the lite pages in a normal web browser -- no wireless device needed!

    This is AWESOME...with one minor issue: this content appears to be just archived posts. Any thoughts on adding this for the current posts?

    Thanks again.

    It's got the current posts. They're in chronological order, so the newest threads are on the last page.
