    As the members have been asking for long DFI lighter version for uses on slow connections and mobile phones is here available.

    Please make sure you read this post on how to use it :-




    1. from the dfi default page go to STYLE CHOOSER located at the bottom left
    2. open the tab(drop down menu) - choose DFI Mobile

    please see the mobile style has very less features supported , no blog , gallery , chatbox , homepage and many pther cosmetic features that are present on the DEFAULT SKIN . there should be no problem sin reading and posting on the threads at anytime though


    3. IF from the mobile skin you want to shift back to dfi default skin with all the features then please click on the tab at the top right title DFI DEFAULT SKIN.





    The mobile skin is fast and easy to use on any mobile handset not only smart phones or high end sets so now enjoy dfi on the go better ,itconsumes very little resources and loads very fast and simple <just what you need to see while on the go >










    Some features and look of the skin is given below have a look any problems just contact dfi staff they will help you out , <update to the mobile skin - it will recognize any mobile device and load the mobile skin as default while any computer the default is the pc skin>

    The lite version is a welcome addition. Definitely it will help a lot of members to excess DFI on the go.
    Further I hope an application type software to use in Blackberry smartphones that will be a great help for me to keep in touch with DFI.
    And I also wish to see a m.dfi.in type of url for better user experience for mobile browser users.
    While the default theme is a bit heavy for my BBHH to operate, the mobile lite version seems too basic, I will expect something inbetween this two extremes :)
    I will welcome a blackberry application just like the formula1 application that is available thru formula1.com for BB users

    What for the users with mixed usage like me. At home I have 1MB speed but my cell offers very slow speed compared to broadband. Do i have to continuously switch between themes. I would really like to see www.defenceforum.in/m

    Very true, even i am facing the problem to first let whole page load onto my symbian browser (u know how slow it is) and then have to change it to mobile version. It would be appreciated if it has something like [B]m.defenceforum.in[/B] or [B]www.defenceforum.in/m[/B] something of this sort so that any one can just type in the address and directly open the lite verion of the DFI.

    Any work in this regard would be highly appreciated.

    Thank You DFI.

    It's now automatic. It should auto switch to mobile theme, based on user agent.

    Must be some cookie issue for you, I'll enable the manual style chooser as well

    For those who are asking for DFI mobile application - DFI is Tapatalk enabled. Just buy and install the Tapatalk app from iTunes, Android market, Blackberry market or whatever mobile app market available to your mobile phone and enjoy surfing and posting on DFI in much more user friendly manner.

    I didn't buy Tapatalk because I wasn't not sure all the forum I browse have it enabled, I know skyscrapercity does, lemme ask the others.
