Request for help with my mobile phone and CB (in General)

AdminG Beee October 13 2006 8:39 AM EDT

Following on from this thread about CB and mobile phones I've now got myself pretty much sorted out. The only downside is that my usage is higher that my contract package supports and I can't realistically increase said package cover as the cost is inhibitive. The charges in the UK are high when compared to other countries... :(

I have access to 30MB of "internet browsing" a month and I think with a few tweaks to how I manage my CB access I can just about get by on that level if there's a change made to fight screen. This is where my request for help comes from.

Because the sidebar screws up my phone browsing the only way for me to fight is to disable the sidebar by surfing directly to the Favorite opponents screen. I click fight, navigate back, scroll down, click fight, navigate back etc etc. Given that I'm having to navigate back to the fight screen after every fight I'm actually accessing twice as many pages (therefor downloading more) as I should be.

There's precedence (albeit a long time ago and not often) whereupon changes have been made for a nominal USD fee. I'm willing to pay if a change can be made to better support my mobile requirements. Ideally (when not using the sidebar) after clicking fight and being taken to the screen that displays the Post-Battle stats etc I'd like a link inserted to enable me to fight my next favorite opponent and loop back to the top of that list once I'd fought the last.
This link would ideally be at the top of the screen and my cursor would rest there after each battle to save me "mousing" to it. (That's a nice to have rather than a necessity however).

Hopefully that makes sense, if not, I'll try and answer any specific questions.
If it's not practical, possible or indeed not worth the effort then a simple "no can do" will put it to bed for me and I'll resign myself to curbing my usage to 30MB a month and using the back key inbetween fights.

I think what you need is a WAP version of the CB2 site, intended purely for fast fighting/ forging, and forum threads, store, auction, and clan stats, without graphics, frames, perhaps even w/o chat.

It can be done, but a WAP version will cost programmer fees.

Nope, I'm not after the WAP version. I'm after exactly as stated above. Simple link as described will do me fine.

Anyway, WAP is soooo last year :p

Just use a set of pages like the sample below:

    <title>G Beee's little fight list</title>
            <li><a href="opponent1.html">Opponent 1</a></li>
            <li><a href="opponent2.html">Opponent 2</a></li>
            <li><a href="opponent3.html">Opponent 3</a></li>
          <iframe src="">If you see this text, this trick won't work</iframe>

Upload these sets of pages (opponent1.html through opponentX.html) to a website, with of course a different opponent_id per opponent.

If you want to know how much traffic your CB habit is using, then check your own server logs on CB; the size of each page is the column right after the number 200.

or just turn on the cache so that when you hit back, you aren't refreshing, you're loading from cache.
