Click on the screen shot it will popup to a window with the image... anyway..

I think the Category should be added through the device, have you been to www.xoops.org on your mobile phone, blackberry and so on.. I am thinking about making an agents class off a sourceforge XML file of all regex patterns for mobile devices.. So it is completely set in the browser.. So many IP's and Subnet walking around the place of people and stuff.

I don't know smaller type faces.. 400px wide.. no more less if it is a smaller screen

some are like this

some like:

I am thinking how easy it is to build an iapps store with XOOPS and the prebuild authentications...

Re: Mobile Computing & XOOPS - Tested OK

Yet another thought provoking contribution from Wishcraft. Very good XOOPS PR and an aspect of xoops' flexibility that had never occurred to me. The more time goes by, the more I realise that XOOPS has so much more to offer than I'd hoped for when I chose it over all the other mainstream CMSs.
Thank you Wishcraft. Thank you xoops!

Re: Mobile Computing & XOOPS - Tested OK

Yeah ok; the mobile computing forum is jumping 50 clicks a day... Sooo, I am going to make a system admin module class that imports this: http://wurfl.sourceforge.net/ (You will require simpleXML to be installed on your system).

Looks great, thanks md from spraci.com for suggesting while review what he described as eliquent code in XOOPS after running spraci.com on drupal. He says with the amount of traffic he gets he as problems with drupal and MySQL query caching so at the moment is looking for new platforms to use.

Thank md drinking ayahausca tea together if i meantion you where in the tile man... ahh tea that lasts a life time the places you go and see and find the hidden portals..
