Using Orkut From Mobile Devices!

Recently I have seen lots of people talking about orkutting from mobile devices!

Before going ahead here is an excerpt from Orkut Help page!

Why can't I access orkut from my mobile device?

We’re sorry to hear about any difficulty you’ve experienced accessing Currently, isn’t compatible with mobile devices. To access your orkut profile, please try logging in using your computer’s web browser.

So today I'm posting about how to use orkut from mobile devices! Before going ahead lemme tel u few things about my environment! I have Nokia N-70 with opera 8.62 installed!
U may use opera mini or any version of opera which support javascript!
With these assumptions lets start the ride!

Login issues!
First at all, if u try to open and get a page loaded with missing login box i.e. no place to enter login information then go to this address! It will directly open login frame where u can enter ur Login ID & password! This frames address is long one so better bookmark it on ur mobile device!

(click on box to select all the text inside box)

The above address can also be used from ur PC to fast login on orkut!

Clicking on button does not work!
As of now u log into orkut but experiencing problem while clicking on buttons! The most common problem I have seen button like submit, delete, yes, no, accept, reject does not work!

The solution lies in JavaScript!

Submitting Scrap!
First thing If u want to scrap someone u hv to go into his/her scrapbook! (The code following are not for orkut's new reply feature!)
After opening intended scrapbook, write scrap with optional formatting the way u usually write!
In next step, without leaving that page(or tab if u r using opera with tab browsing) go to this address:

(click on box to select all the text inside box)

Actually this is not a web address but javascript which will "execute" submit button!
Again bookmark this address by naming Submit Scrap or something! The advantage of bookmarking is that u can directly open the bookmark after writing scrap!

Steps for bookmarking above codes into ur mobile browser:
  1. Copy content in text-box to say notepad and send that file to ur mobile.
  2. Open that file in any editor in mobile!
  3. Copy the script on clipboard! (using edit key in Nokia).
  4. Open ur browser and go to Add Bookmarks Option!
  5. Chose a name u like and paste the script in address field! OR U can manually create the bookmark by entering the script instead of copy-paste n sending a file to mobile!
Now once u have created these bookmarks, u can log into orkut fast as well as scrap someone!

In future will write code for other buttons if i found people interested in this cumbersome orkutting from mobile! U can subscribe to this blog to get updates automatically!
