How to adapt WP for PDA's? (2 posts)

    Can you help me to adapt the wordpress for PDA'a (Handheld)?
    I have edited the classic theme so it suits for the small display of a PDA (320x240 pixels).
    But the biggest trouble is the post form "/wp-admin/post.php".
    It is 20 times bigger as the display of a PDA. and there are too much useless stuff I don't need on the PDA display. for example the header: "*Dashboard*Write*Manage *Links*Presentation...." etc.
    I only need following things for PDA-users:
    1.title
    2.post body (may be with the richeditor, but not necessary)
    3.categories (like "tags" at livejournal.com, just a string of categories separated with commas, without the button "add" etc., because this button don't work on the PDA's portable Internet Explorer). so the user can add any categories.
    4.optional: checkboxes "allow comments", post status "private", timestamp.
    That's all.

    I think, many PDA-users of the WP will be grateful for this lite PDA-version of WP.

    Thank you in advance!

    Look into the Tiger-style admin plugin. It's not suitable for your purposes, exactly, but it does completely change the admin screen, and by looking at how it does that, you might be able to make a plugin that revamps the admin screen for PDA users.
