    hi there, i am designing a mobile site for my social networking site that was created using wordpress and buddypress. the thing is, there are some few obstacles that i am meeting. 1 how to code the comment_action.php file that allows members to comment and also allows activity stream, allows threaded comments, and activity streaming.

    2 profile_action.php file that allows users to edit, change avatars, hide some details from people and view other people’s profiles.

    3 mesages_action.php file that allows members to send and receive personal mesages form their friends or any other member.

    4 login_action.php that connects and checks whether the user is a registered member and validates the login. also the forgot password_action.php for changing the pass, and the register_action.php for registering users and creating their account, saving user name/ pass word in database

    5 images.php and images_action.php. these are supposed to create a facebook like album for users and also an option for other members to comment on them. Remember, this is a mobile site for my wordpress buddypress social site

    if there is anyone who can help me get these codes, then i would really appreciate it since i have been stuck for more than 4 months. am also having an issue with the way buddypress is displaying user’s status even to the logged out members. i wanted to code a html or php file that combines log in and sign up page but the problem is that i cant locate the necessary action.php files for login and register files. anybody.

    about the mobile issue, if someone has another opinion that can help me then i would be glad to hear it. the site is at http://campusspage.com/

    I’d like to first find out if possible what you mean by ‘mobile site’ do you mean your site when viewed on a mobile device (responsive) or are you creating a theme just for mobile sites? I’d only suggest the later you see if you want to do something different/additional from the responsiveness which your theme gets just by being the default theme.

    hey, thanks for the reply. What i was referring to was creating a light weight site to be viewed by a mobile device and if possible some other hand held devices. Am doing this because when i installed frisco theme, its not functioning very well on the mobile, and another issue is that, there is a problem with the theme lately. When i activate it, its not displaying the contents very well. Okay, back to the issue. I want a mobile site for my main site because the responsive themes are making the sites to load very slowly when viewed with the mobile. What am trying to say is, if i can be able to design a mobile site like the way facebook has, that would mean alot to me. I hope i have shade some light.

    THe slow is probably due to plugins and other scripting that the mobile devices have to contact services or ‘dial home’ to use.

    Facebook has an app that’s a different approach and if you want to take that you don’t want to be considering a theme at all you’d be looking at a different format.

    What you could do is look at conditional loading ie; only show things if not on a mobile. You can do this easily and simply using media queries or more advanced and potentially more issues by using detectors.
