  • MMi Gets a New iPhone Style


    In expectation of the giant amount of upcoming iPhone users, and to help out those of you who already browse MMi from your iPhones, we've tweaked our iPhone style quite a bit - in fact, its completely brand new.

    Feel free to check it out simply by going to modmyi.com from your iPhone, and clicking the giant yellow banner that says "click here to use the iPhone style of MMi". Only iPhone users on their iPhones/iPod Touches see that.

    Once you've got to the iPhone style, you'll stay there until you decide not to, by selecting "use normal version" from the bottom left of the page. The idea is though that you'll never need the normal version from your iPhone.

    We hope you guys like this new style as much as we do! Suggestions, thoughts, improvements, please post here, and we will let you know what we can do.

    Just another way MMi is striving to give you the best iPhone community on the planet.

      guys - you don't have to open any article to see the banner. I will unallow the previous iPhone style so folks aren't seeing it anymore.

      If you have to reclick it, make sure you have cookies set to on - you should only have to choose the style once.

      I have cookies on (from visited) but I confirm that you have to open this post on my 8 Gb 1.1.4 iPwn to see the yellow banner and that when you close the MMI page and open it again, you get again the 'classic' style. Also, after selecting the new style, when I add to home screen, I don't get the nice MMI icon. Hope you can fix these issues, it's nice to have a faster access to MMI from the iPhone

      Hey guys - you definitely don't need to click this specific thread, heh, there's nothing possible to do that.

      Its a simple Javascript which checks if you're on an iPhone or iPod Touch browser, and if you are, displays the graphic. Done. Make sure you are on the normal version of MMi on your iPhone, which should now be the only version you can see other than the iPhone version. Then click the yellow banner. Its huge.

      Yup, will get it today. I thought there was one there, sorry, hadn't realized it was gone.

      Love the new iPhone layout, but the PC & Mac one is confusing, ad-riden
      Computer version is well laid out. We may look into new versions, but unless you'd like all our bills, ads stay. We never charge for anything, and there's a reason we can do that and still offer a large site.

      Feel free to check the source, the original design we based it off was by a Spanish forum called ElForro.com I believe.

      I'm guessing you jailbroke with ZiPhone, and your cookies actually don't work at all.

      Try running

      chown mobile:wheel /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/
      chown mobile:wheel /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/Cookies.plist
      from Terminal on your iPhone or via SSH to your iPhone.

      Your cookies definitely aren't working if you navigate away from the page and see the old style again.

      how do i make it show the news page like the full site does instead of straight to forums?

      and when i click "modmyi.com"
      at the top of the page it goes back to the original forums page not the new one.

      Also - I just realized, if you're not seeing our webclip icon, you may have the same ZiPhone issue.

      Run

      chown mobile:wheel /var/mobile/Library/WebClips/
      From Terminal or SSH to fix.

      If its going back to the original style, and you used ZiPhone to jailbreak, your cookies are not working.

      Try running

      chown mobile:wheel /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/
      chown mobile:wheel /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/Cookies.plist
      from Terminal on your iPhone or via SSH to your iPhon

      Yeah the new forums work great on my phone, but I used ZiPhone and the frontpage didnt. I tried running those 2 lines about the cookies, rebooted and it didnt work. Seems kind of weird that the forums are fine but the frontpage isnt. Just a heads up...

      Which URL are you referring to? /cmps_index.php? That shouldn't be able to be viewed from iPhone unless you manually input the URL - visiting modmyi.com from the iPhone should bring you right to the iPhone style.

      I go to ht*tp://www.modmyi.com (forget the *) on my iPhone and then it redirects me to cmps_index.php and loads the home computer version although when I go to the forums whether I type in the URL or tap on the forums icon, that is set up just fine...

      Poetic folly,

      thanks for your tips and your work.

      At any rate, I never used Ziphone. My current unlock/jailbreak is with Pwnage. It's possible that my cookies don't work, but i think there may be a re-direct page issue here

      Also, let me clarify that the Webclips work. Indeed, I have a beautiful MMI webclip on my home screen made a long time ago when MMI offered only the 'classical' style. It's only now with the new style that when I add to my home screen, I get as webclip only the screenshot (I hope you know what I am talking about...)
