Where are the settings stored?

Post by *Black Antitoon » 2009-07-22, 11:31 UTC

Hello, this is my first post here. Congratulations for Total Commander, I love it. And that's why I am asking you where are the settings stored. I read somewhere here that they are stored in the registry, but I can't find the key. I need this because Total Commander is one of the first app I always install, and I now would like to restore my favourite settings automatically when I reflash the ROM with a .reg file.

Thank you.

By the way, the spam trap is great! :lol:

EDIT: What about upgrading to phpBB 3? Yours doesn't seem a so-heavily-modded board. :)

Yes, they are stored in the registry. If you use our registry plugin, you can find them in
HKCU\Software\Ghisler

I prefer to stay with V2 for a while, because I don't need to patch it all the time. Also I do have a lot of mods installed, like quick reply, RSS, and many small improvements which make it easier to use...

Lol! I had checked for "Total Commander" in HKLM and HKCU, and for "Ghisler" only in HKLM! :lol: Many thanks!

Just remember that phpBB 3 now has an automatic updater, and that 3.0.6 shouldn't be too close right now. ;)

I've been on other forums where the newer board versions were in use, and found them much more awkward to use in a mobile browser -- sometimes impossible.

This board is fine. PIE brings it up in mobile format. The Iris Browser brings it up in desktop format, but it's still usable that way on my PDA, unlike the newer board versions.

Well, that's much a better reason. Actually it's a pity that p3 doesn't offer a mobile version as vBulletin does...

Anyway I'm taking you off topic. Thanks for the quick info. :)

Actually I have installed a mod too for the mobile version! What's the browser string for Iris? The "subSilver mobile" mod uses the following regular expression to detect the mobile browsers:
$is_mobile = preg_match('/(up-browser)|(blackberry)|(windows ce)|symbian|palm|nokia/i', $user_agent);

Mobile mode

The Iris developers have been keeping their user agent settings a deep, dark secret. I do know that the browser uses Apple's WebKit rendering engine, even in WM5, and that Google gives me versions of Gmail and Translate designed for the iPhone.

It's a freeware mobile web browser, and still in the early stages of development. I'm currently using version 1.1.7 instead of the latest release, because the newer versions seem to have introduced some bugs.

If you want to try it, just Google "Iris Browser", or the company's name, "Torch Mobile".

Sorry about going off topic here!

I just discovered the following string at the bottom of a web page. Apparently the site is detecting Iris Browser's user agent string:

Mozilla/5.0 (U; Mobile; iPhone; PPC; en; 480x640) AppleWebKit/525.18.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) WM5 Iris/1.1.7 Version/3.1.1 Mobile/5A345 Safari/525.20

OK, I have added iPhone to the search string, since others like KHTML or WebKit are also used by Web browsers like the Google browser.

Thanks; it's working just fine!
