Optimizing 184.108.40.206 for mobile/tablets - cleditor issues
Okay after doing a lot of reading around and still not finding a clear cut answer, I'd like to post (hopefully) one last question.
I am trying to optimise my forum for both desktop (already done with default theme) and mobile (ideally with mobile theme).
What I can report so far with the following mobile devices accessing Vanilla 220.127.116.11 with CLEditor is this:
-Blackberry BB10 browser: loads default theme but won't allow use with CLEditor (but works with stock editor)
-Window Phone 8 IE browser: same as above
-iPhone Safari browser: This works the best of all. The theme (automatically) defaults to mobile theme and reverts to stock editor automatically.
So ideally I would like to keep the cleditor for desktop users but am more than happy to revert to stock editor for mobile.
To provide optimisation at both levels (mobile/desktop), I can see 3 options:
Preferred 1/ Make the default theme detected for desktop = vanilla 'default' theme with cleditor and make the default theme detected for mobile = the vanilla mobile theme with stock editor (like the iPhone seems to do automatically).
2/ The 2nd option would be to make some exceptions in the default.php file of cleditor for all mobile devices where the keyboard won't interact with cleditor following the example in this thread: http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/comment/190732#Comment_190732
In fact I've already altered the default.php and added some exceptions, but the one's I added for both the blackberry and WP8 device have not worked.
Interestingly, in this case, iPhone is not affected by the exception and will override to the stock editor regardless of whether CLEditor is enabled or not and regardless of any custom code in default.php.
3/ The third option is simple but gives those desktop users less features: remove cleditor altogether!
Any thoughts on this would be most appreciated although I'm already swaying towards the simple option 3 TBH and saving any further sweat!
