Okay, I know what you think… and you are right - it took forever but finally it's back and better then ever :!: :D

Now, near everything you get on the Desktop version of PPCW.Net is also available on the Wireless version except the left and right column. But you have access to all categories, as well as to the archive which means you can read every article now, ever posted on PPCW.Net.

PPCW.Net Wireless looks on your Pocket PC and Smartphone like this:


Thanks to Brian Greene for the Pocket PC screenshot! Brian, you rock! Not only that you've snapped it, you also sent it with the proper name which made it easier for me to upload it via Terminal Service from my Notebook via my Desktop (where I've received the E-Mail) to my FTP... :D

Right now the Wireless version has these three limitations:


  • Search isn't implemented right now

  • Comments posting is disabled

  • Mazingo and AvantGo are still disabled


Search and adding comments will be added as soon as possible and for the offline synchronization I have to develop a different template, the current one would synchronize everything - including the archive which would cause a data synchronization of 4 GB! So I've decided to disable it… :idea: ;-)

But I'm also working on this and the Offline template should be available faster then the Wireless version since I can use most of the code for it, only need to exclude some parameters!

Any thoughts or additional ideas? How does it work for you? I've tested it the whole afternoon with my Smartphone via GPRS and for me it worked perfect, hope you like it too!

As always, the redirect is done automatically, depending on with which PC/device you are accessing PPCW.Net. So you don't have to remind a second URL!
