    So now I'm in a situation where my computer's hard drive is now dead and I get on GBAtemp less often (using other computers). One day, when I attempted to view GBAtemp.net on my Wii using the Internet Browser, I couldn't sign in to GBAtemp (the dialog never showed up). I'm not a Wii programmer, so I'm wondering if anyone can make a GBAtemp client for the Wii? It's been on my mind ever since I joined the GBAtemp community.

    Uhh...yeah, they do. I'm fairly certain, as I used to use my Wii as a browser before. I'm pretty sure they won't make a proprietary version for the Wii, so either make it yourself or figure something else out. Sorry.

    GBATemp relies on html,java,jquery, php among others. Those require a web browser to work (the code is compiled and parsed by a browser). There's no such "client", but Opera, or another web browser solution.

    The forum has changed, I wouldn't be surprised if the new one needed some styuff the wii's browser doesn't do.

    PHP is server-side, the browser doesn't even know it exists.

    Hey man, if you need another hard drive that badly then if you pay the shipping and tell me whether you need an IDE drive or a SATA drive then I will ship one of my kick around ones that I just use for data backup. Most of my spare drives that am willing to pass off are 40gb or 80gb. IDK how long they will last but it will be at least something. PM me if you're interested. I think we can get shipping to be under $5.

    Since the opera browser for the Wii is closed source, you can't do anything about it if something on GBAtemp doesn't work with it. And I don't think IPS would care enough to fix their forum software for the Wii's browser. Perhaps Costello and tj can come up with a solution for you.

    Why don't you just use GC-Linux? I've been using the Wii as my only computer for about a year now, works great.

    Whatever.

    PS. @DeadlyFoez I have a hard drive already, but thanks for the offer.

    And @snikerz suggested gc-linux, thanks.

    This implies that you can sign in with the mobile version. So you could try signing in with the mobile version, then switch to the full version, seeing as how it was signing in that did not work in the full version. Of course, there are quite possibly other features of the full version that won't work, but that might at least get you past the sign-in process.
