    Does this site support WAP formats?

    I have a nintendo DS.
    I have the opera browser for the DS and whilst I can view and post in this forum in a normal format, it loads faster in a wap format and is generally easier to browse.

    My forum supports WAP as standard as follows:

    For older mobile devices, use the old WAP format

    For newer mobile devices, use the newer format

    So, do you suport mobile devices?

    Long delayed response. Apologies.

    You can, as you say, access with a mobile device (I've done it more than once) but vbulletin doesn't support full WAP access for mobile devices - yet. There is an unofficial 'hack' for WAP but I'm not sure if RdF is ready or able to implement it.

    There have been a number of calls on the forums for what you're asking, but it seems nothing major will happen until vb4 is released. No idea when that might be, I'm afraid.

    These threads may be of interest to you though:
    _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

      We will wait until it is formalized and supported by Vbulletin in a future version such as 4.0 or when they get their solution together.
      Infinite complexity according to simple rules.
