    Default Mobi Blogs

    Has anybody cracked this yet?

    I am looking for a simple mobi compliant blogging mechanism: that can be picked up and used by non-techies. The emphasis is on the word SIMPLE.

    The closest I have seen is this:
    http://www.dev.mobi/node/789
    ... but the end result is a bit naff.

    Ideally, we need something here that looks ok from a standard browser, yet scores 4+ and formats ok in mobi. Maybe we want too much... or maybe not.

    I have at least 2 good content sites ready to roll but which are on hold, waiting for this resolution. My frustration builds daily.

    Any ideas?

    I'll hold my hands up to that one, noonoo1... it looks cracking. Excellent job.


    BUT: to me that's a forum not a blog. HOWEVER: we need a forum template too, so:


    1) Is it a template? Is it commercially available? Does it require any fixes/plug-ins?

    I am assuming simplemachines.org, but which variant? Can you spell it out to me a little, to shortcut a bit of time? You can probably tell that I want these sites up and running pronto.

    2) Anyone else know of an actualy blog mechanism rather than a forum? I'm disappointed with Blogger like many others. Is there an easy alternative?


    BTW: I have only joined this forum today noonoo1, and you have already made it worthwhile with that find.

    It is easy to do when you know how, if you want instruction i can certainly help you. We all like to help each other on this forum.

    You are able to add mods/fixes plugins and alter pictures/ styles/ anything.

    That is excellent.... just what we want.

    Any chance you could do an idiots list? By this I mean a sort of:
    1. Go to this page...
    2. Download this...
    3. Do this...
    4. And so on...

    I would love to get this nailed over the weekend. Once understood for the first site, we can use variants of it to get others up and running.

    I believe that .mobi needs a lot more good content sites up... and we can get some up very quickly if we can crack this,

    Sorry for the delay in spotting this.

    The blog is http://www.ppl.mobi. Just started it. Goss.mobi will follow soon using the same system, but more as a gossip/news tidbit channel than a blog.

    And I will probably use the same system on imho.mobi, but the forum version of it (it will be an opinion type platform, as you might expect from the name).

    The software is indeed easy to use: cool.

    Thanks for helping with it. Appreciated.

    Hi folks...

    I'm going to try my hand at Joomla 1.5... just installed it and learning about it now... it would seem that it should be possible to set up and use a .mobi blog or forum with Joomla using CSS. But then nothing is ever as simple as it should be - anyways, I'll get back to you when (if) I get it figured out.
