I am wondering if there is a way that when an article is written, that it could also write to a directory like m.yourdomain.com/yourdirectory/yourfile.html so that mobile users could read the site too?

Hi djmaine,

Thanks for posting. [:)]

You could definitely do this - you'd just need to create a new article page publishing rule, and set it up to use a template file which had been designed with mobile browsers in mind. You could set this rule up so that these mobile-friendly files published in a specific directory if you needed to.

Let us know if you need any more details on this!

I use the Printer-Friendly format for mobiles. I have a different index for a mobile page but as far as articles go I use a customized printer friendly template. You can click http://www.wrestling-online.com/mobile/livepreview.shtml there to see how it looks on an HP IPAQ for example.

I need more details...how do I do this?

Re: [djmaine] Make it mobile phone friendly

Hi,

Thanks for posting! [:)]

To set this up you'll want to log into Article Manager's admin program, click "Admin" and then "Publishing". You'll want to find your existing publishing rule called "Article Pages" and click "modify". From there you'll want to scroll to the bottom of the page and beside the dropdown menu that says "Copy Rule" you'll want to click the Go button.

At this point you'll be able to create a new publishing rule based off of your existing Article Pages rule. For this new publishing rule you'll just want to tweak the Rule Name and Description to something more descriptive for your "Mobile" articles. You'll also want to tweak the template that's being used so Article Manager will use your new mobile-friendly template to output these articles.

On this page, the other thing you'll want to tweak will be the Publish Dir/Publish URL so Article Manager publishes these mobile-friendly articles to a specific folder on your site that you can link people to.

I hope this helps, just let me know if you have any other questions about setting this up! [:)]

Re: [MikeB] Make it mobile phone friendly

I finally got around to trying to do this but seem to be having issues.

Article Previews are already being generated with the rule: 'Article Pages'.
You must disabled Article Previews in that rule first before enabling them in this rule.
This publish rule has the same categories and placeholder as 'Article Pages'. Either unselect the matching categories or change the placeholder name. Matching categories:




I don't get it?



I would also like to make an IPhone and a Blackberry App for my site.

Could these be done?

Re: [djmaine] Make it mobile phone friendly

Hi there,

In your second publish rule, uncheck the "Use this publish rule for generating previews from the Article Editor" and change the "Placeholder" option to something different, and that should do it. :)

Error: templatecell 'articleRow' wasn't found in 'articleLists/mobilearticlePages/articlePage.html'!

Re: [djmaine] Make it mobile phone friendly

I still don't get it

Re: [djmaine] Make it mobile phone friendly

Hi there,

Looks like you're missing some required code in your new template. Make sure all of the templatecells that are in the default articlePage.html template are also in the mobile version.

Article Manager uses those templatecells to know how to format the repeating content... without it, it doesn't know how you want your dynamic content displayed, and so you'll get this error. :)
