    Thumbs up IDEA: Status of where you're browsing from.

    Advertisement



    This can be moved to another location on the forum, just couldn't find the right spot and my train of thought for this was about to go away.

    I was thinking of a way to increase the enjoyment of our Stackers and thought having a spot in our profile and forum posts that shows the vieewes of what we're using while posting/viewing the forum.

    Example: Browsing From: Desktop
    Example: Browsing From: Handheld (or the actual model it's self)

    This would be cool because it will let the techie know if the person they're trying to help is on their device or not which for some people this is a nice thing to know, especially if you're wondering if they're on that device at that present time so you can assist them further on the situation you're in. (Something nice to have and know)

    Let me know what you all think, criticisim is open but please be nice

    Cheers.

    Re: IDEA: Status of where you're browsing from.

    just wondering how your idea's are compared to the current setup? right now if you post via wap it adds that "tag", while from PC it does not.

    Expand on your thoughts of what you would like to see...I do like the "posted via BlackBerry (model)" though.

    Re: IDEA: Status of where you're browsing from.

    Very true, the signature does state they're posting from the BB, but the Browsing from "model" is nice to have.

    Thanks for pointing this out cliffr!

    Re: IDEA: Status of where you're browsing from.

    I dunno if we can implement this here but I know on other sites, when you browse via wap and post you get a header like this:

    Wirelessly posted (Da Supa: BlackBerry8700/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)
    I am guessing it's a forum code?

    Re: IDEA: Status of where you're browsing from.

    That would be a nice feature to have, I've seen it on blackberryforums. I'd like to see it on here, but that code it very sloppy and needs to be cleaned.

    Thanks
