  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Unfortunately there is a problem with the upgrader that makes it run extremely slowly when extracting files. This makes it unfeasible for use and therefore you should extract the upgrade TAR file to your server manually instead.
Unfortunately because the upgrader runs from the version being upgraded from, we won't be able to resolve this in the final release, our fix can only help subsequent future upgrades.

There were a couple of oversights in our new mobile support in RC1.

This allows you to only enable it on a per-page basis if your content/layout isn't fully compatible (it's not for this site for example, and most complex fixed width designs would have problems if a lot of attention is not given). Devices like iPhones automatically go into mobile mode, so you don't want it to load up mobile display settings and overlay them on content that doesn't work, as it can make a big mess. Attachment:

sources/support.php
» Download: support.php (52 Kb, 214 downloads so far)

To activate the change you need to put this in your themes/<themename>/theme.ini file:

Code

mobile_pages=forumview,topicview,topics,vforums
This particular example enables mobile support just on the forum pages, as we're now doing on this site.
On devices like iphones or Android, it still works if mobile mode is not enabled, it just uses zoom. Mobile mode is much nicer of course (try it on our forum if you have a smartphone).

The next problem is mobile devices were not given a hint that we could display at 320 width (QVGA). Mobile devices (definitely the iPhone and Android devices) will typically zoom out and display using a more desktop like resolution if not hinted:
