To benefi from this feature You need at least basic knowledge on web-design (code-wise): HTML/CSS and using debug/developer mode in Your web browser.
Mobilizer works while loading full articles. It removes header and footer of a website containing the article, navigation panel, advertisement, and so on.
The name "Mobilizer" is inherited from another Android app called "Just Reader".
As a matter of fact a website is a set of HTML pages. You may visualize such a page as a tree of so-called HTML tag nodes. What the Mobilizer do is to try to find the node that contains only the actual article's text.
By default Mobilizer use some algorithm trying to determine that "root full text node" automatically. By it may be wrong - in that case in Handy's full text mode you may see the article with many "garbage" elements or only a piece of text. For such cases (sites) you can set the root element manually by ID or class attribute (HTML/CSS). You can do it by adding a string to context extract rules preference (Handy settings ➜ Advanced ➜ Content extract rules) - in a following way:
ID or class attribute value can be determined with the help of Your web browser debug/developer mode.
Adjusting the Mobilizer comes in handy also in case a website You want to subscribe does not have an RSS feed. In that case You need to:
How to make the Mobilizer work even better?
You may achieve it by using a filter feature. Let's say You'd like to subscribe this website - which does not have an RSS feed. To achieve this you need to use so-called regular expression. It will help to determine which parts of a website may be valuable for you (i.e. consisting of actual content) - while all the rest will be rejected.
Before constructing a regular expression You need a little bit of back-engineering. To be more precise: You need to find out the common part which all useful links present on the website incorporate (although not always it is possible to find that kind of part which could differentiate one group of links from another). In the case of our example all useful links contain a word "wall" - e.g.:
So back to our regular expression: vk.com\/+wall-\d+_\d+ - it means that Handy will be loading only those articles which addresses begin with vk.com/wall- , then contain some numbers, a sign "_" and numbers again.
