As it is easy to notice, I for a long time didn’t write to this blog. The first reason is that last and this years I worked hard on my PhD thesis. Other reason is that after last patching of Wordpress (to struggle against spamers) I cannot respond to your comments :-(. I’m going to move the blog to Joomla+JComments, but it will be, most likely, in next year.

As the site physicist.phpnet.us doesn’t work, I’ve transferred (temporarily) all data from it here. I hope, that shortly my blog will move on a new constant residence.
As far as I have understood from comments on this site (and even from a separate topic on forum.joomla.org), there is a big interest to the version of a PDA-mambot for Mambo CMS. The matter is that the version for Joomla cannot work in Mambo as the latter does not trigger “OnStart” event. In order to PDA-mambot start working, it is necessary to make changes to a index.php file and to modify slightly a PDA-mambot since in Mambo and Joomla the name of a new template is stored in different variables.
If you create a site for mobile devices, you need to solve the problem: how to distinguish the user, who has visited a site from a computer, from the user, who has visited a site from the mobile device? There are some scripts, which allow solving this problem:
- PHP to detect mobile phones
- Lightweight device-detection in PHP
- Here is how to detect a mobile device using php
But mobile devices strongly differ by the opportunities. Some devices support only WML, some—mobile XHTML, some (iMode)—cHTML. Moreover, there are some PDAs which fine displays usual HTML. Here the situation is more complex, and exists not so many scripts allowing to distinguish devices on these four groups.
It appears today this blog is half a year. So, I congratulate myself and all readers on the half-anniversary.
What have I made for half a year?
- It is made and published a lot of useful (PDA-mambot, Popular-of-late, CAPTCHA, WeblogPing, etc.).
- The blog has about 40 permanent rss-readers (according to Feedburner).
- Google PR of the blog has gone up to 6 (quite good result for 6 months).
- The blog has hit in Google TOP10 by such keywords as joomla mobile, joomla pda, pda mambot, pda testing, pda cms, joomla captcha, cms captcha, joomla ping, auto ping, optimize joomla queries, and also Denis Ryabov, interesting typography, unable to unarchive, and own strength .
In general, I value this as successful enough start.
However, the blog continues the life. First of all, it is owing to you, the attentive and thoughtful Reader! In fact, that can be better for the author, than a feedback, which acts to him in the form of grateful letters and comments. I will continue to please you further with useful interesting posts and extensions. And, taking an opportunity, I wish to ask you to leave in comments, along with congratulations, also the wishes: What subjects interest you most of all? About what you would want, that I wrote in the future?
Today I leave for scientific conference, therefore a site “goes on leave” till October, 17th.
All comments will be added at once and without premoderation. But to avoid a spam, all comments containing links will not be published.
There was a failure on a server therefore a site some days did not work. Now the site functions normally.
