Suggestion: Mobile template for mchat.php?

Postby kateland » 08 May 2012, 14:03

Hi again,

I don't see anywhere on the board that mobile templates were discussed for mchat. We have a few people who sit on chat all day (the mini chat, not the index) and I thought it would be useful if there were a mobile optimized layout for smartphones. Has this been discussed/discarded already? Curious!

Stoker, I would definitely be interested. I saw some mobile themes existed on StarTrekGuide, too, but they looked a few phpBB versions old so I wasn't sure I should mess with it.

Note that I am also using Rich addon for textarea. That mean that you also have to edit the mchat js if you use it.

Or just change this line

Code: Select all

<textarea  name="message" class="inputbox medium mChatText" id="mChatMessage" onkeydown="mChat.key(event);" rows="2" cols="32"></textarea><br />


to the default input used in the mchat_body.html file.

OK I installed the iPhone style, added Stoker's mchat_body as above, and two things are happening. One, the javascript is not updating. I have to manually refresh to get the latest chats. Two, posting doesn't work but I think it's related to the first one.

I don't have the text area add on - is this the issue?

I'm guessing I missed a step? I'm using prosilver_se for my main forum so I'm always forgetting what other template files go in pro silver or the SE folder since last I read it was an inherited style

You are probably missing the edits to the mobile theme overall_header.html file from the mod install instructions.

This was the solution I chased down here. It works great for me, except that before now, if I pressed ENTER on my phone keyboard, it sent the message. Now, I have to click on SEND. Can this be fixed? If not, I am happy with it the way it is. Thanks.

PS. Can I make the text slightly bolder too, while we are at it? LOL

EDIT: I noticed the old messages were not leaving the screen, so after a while, it gets filled up and now I can't send any messages; ENTER or SEND. Am I doing something wrong? Must I have to purge the Chat window every so often?

You are probably missing the mchat.css from the overall_header.html edit of that style.

There are only two edits in that file and I did both, even though the edits do not seem to be about .css. They are:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF S_MCHAT_ENABLE and (S_MCHAT_ON_INDEX or U_MCHAT) -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="{ROOT_PATH}mchat/jquery-1.5.0.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="{ROOT_PATH}mchat/jquery_cookie_mini.js"></script>
<!-- ENDIF -->


and

Code: Select all

            <!-- IF S_MCHAT_ENABLE and U_MCHAT --><li class="icon-bump"><a href="{U_MCHAT}#mChat" title="{L_MCHAT_TITLE}">{L_MCHAT_TITLE}</a></li><!-- ENDIF -->


I have both. But I noticed that if I refresh the page, I am able to send. So, each time I want to send a message, I have to manually refresh the page. It was not like that.

Sorry I meant within the styles stylesheet.css file not overall_header.html and you probably don't need this <script type="text/javascript" src="{ROOT_PATH}mchat/jquery-1.5.0.min.js"></script> as that style already loads jQuery.
