Two new blog views

Two new ways to view the blog, especially for those using mobile phones or hand-held devices.

Headlines only:
Print-Friendly text:

Here are two other possibilities for viewing T19:

A “Mobile” Template for those who want to see the latest headlines (with links to full stories) and comment totals at a glance with no text or sidebar.

And the Print-Friendly view we linked yesterday. (Note this link is now in the sidebar under Blog Tips & Info). The text of the entries from the main page without the sidebar.

The mobile template especially still may be rough. Comments and critiques welcome.

    Is there a way that the articles linked from the mobile page could be in a format without the calendar and the archives and the links?

  3. fatherlee says:

    Eureka! Could you simply link the links on the mobile page to the printer-friendly version?

  4. The_Elves says:

    Sure Fatherlee. I think I can do that. Give me a few minutes.

  5. fatherlee says:

    Works like a charm! Thanks Elves!

    Fatherlee, the link in the mobile view now points to the “print_w_comments” view, which includes the text of any comments but doesn’t include a comment box, and I really don’t want to add a comment box to either the print view or print_w_comments view, since it defeats the point of a print-friendly format with minimal clutter.

    But, I’ve added a link where you can comment, that will take you to the article view including the sidebar.

    Cool! It’s tough to comment on the mobile, but very nice to be able to see comments.

    The “mobile” view looks great on my phone — a Qtek 8500 (same device as the Cingular 3125), running Windows Mobile 5. Thanks!

    Glad it’s helpful and working well for folks. It was pretty easy. Adapted the archive page.
