Thank you for your mod !
It seems there is a bug in your mod , we know a wml page is limited by its length in one card.
if i have a big-size (may be 500k or larger) topic , can it be shown by one wml page?

Not on all mobile devices, it'll better to use the split function to split topics more that xxx characters into some pages.

i have read your code !
there are some code not efficient.
for example, you make a function named "prepare_content" in "lib.php" to generate the topics related to page number but it's not a efficient way to solve the problem .
Using "limit $start,$size" in your sql must be better way !

If possible , add some note on your codes . It make others easy to join your work . I'm so buzy these days that i cant do more for this code.
Thank you for your work !
waiting your new version !

This is a open issue for my code. I could split one post into several pages if it is too long. While, if I did so, (1) since there will be bbcode in a post, such as URL, it is possible that the URL beginning symbol is in one page, the end is in another page. My code will have to handle this case, or user will lost the link function in mobile phone. Thing will be more complex when one post has multiple sympols. (2) Another problem is I can not provide the quote function if I do split, since the content of quote is in different pages.

Hope someone can provide a good solution to this issue.

My current consideration is I will not provide the split func. The issue will be solved when I provide xhtml and/or simple html (text only) version.

You can split the one post by ". ! ?" and the size. if someome dont like use punctuation, we wish him luck.
:!: In my opinion, the most important thing is to optimize your code ,especially in the place where you used "prepare_content" function .

Thank you, Rickey29! This mod is exactly what I have been looking for! I have only been using it for a day but neither I nor my users have found a single glitch. It has worked perfectly for our needs on all the phones tested so far! Thank you very much for creating such an amazing and useful mod!

I was wondering, however, if you plan on supporting log-ins and posting from mobile phones as well... do you suppose those features may be considered for a future version? Thanks again for such a fantastic mod!!!
