My b2evolution Version: Not Entered

Hello,

I searched the forum and Google but was not able to find any help on how to display a b2evolution blog to mobile WAP/WML based devices. Any information would be deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance! :D

Hi ronc,
The way to do this is to create a skin that outputs in WML format. The RSS feeds that b2evolution provides are actually just skins. Those might be a good place to look to get stated. You could copy the skins/_rss folder and call it skins/_wml. Then just change the tags to make it work with wml.

So, have you made any progress on this? Are you running into any problems yet? Once you get the skin ready, you'll be able to use a stub file and force that skin on the stub file. So, your users can go to a url like this: yoursite.com/m.php on their phone and bam, the wml skin shows your latest blog posts.

Hi,

Yes, I have a solution now, thanks. I used the 'basic' skin with a tool that reads html files and converts them to WML. Works great! :-)

Sounds good. I still might like to have a go at creating a wml skin. If I ever get around to it, I'll post back here.
