    Opera Mini has some special commands
    that you enter in the address bar like a URL
    but without the "http://". Many of them
    return information that's probably only of
    interest to Opera's developers but a couple
    are actually very useful.
    My favorite is config: which opens Opera
    Mini's Power User Settings page where you
    can tweak  many browser settings like the
    timeout and whether the browser should
    make phone numbers clickable. See my
    postOpera Mini's Hidden Power User Menu
    for more information.
    Web developers will appreciate
    server:source which displays the source
    code of the current page.
    Here's a full list of all the hidden Opera
    Minicommands that I've discovered. I've
    tested these in Opera Mini 4.3 and 6 and I
    believe that (except as noted) they should
    work in all Opera Mini versions since 4.0.
    config: - Open the the Power User Settings
    menu
    server:source - Display the current page's
    source code
    opera:cache - displays the size and URL of
    cached pages and images
    about: - displays information about the
    Opera Mini server
    debug: - Displays a page listing many Opera
    mini server and client properties. The
    "Host:" field tells you which Opera Mini
    server you are currently connected to.
    The first letter of the host is supposed to
    indicate which country the server is in.  I
    believe that "r" hosts like "r02-12" are in
    the US. as I'm in the US and I'm usually
    connected to "r" hosts. I've also seen or
    heard of "t", "z" and "v" hosts. Anyone seen
    others or know where any of them are?
    The following commands duplicate Opera
    Mini menu functions.
    feed:list - Go to the Feeds page
    opera:about - Displays copyright and
    license information for third party
    software used in the browser
    server:reset - clears all cookies
    server:refresh - refreshes the current page
    o:A - goes to the start page (Opera Mini 4.n
    only)
    o:Z - goes to your bookmarks (Opera Mini
    4.n only)
    I suspect that there are more of these
    hidden commands. If you've discovered
    others that are currently working, please
    lets all know in a comment.

    This is another in Wap Review's ongoing
    series oftips on getting the most out Opera
    Mini, the full-web mobile browser that
    works on most phones.
    Opera mini is quite configurable. Using the
    build in "Settings" menu (top image) you
    can:
    Set the default font size.
    Change image quality or turn
    off images entirely to manage
    memory and bandwidth use.
    Toggle fit-to-width "mobile
    view".
    Switch the default view
    between portrait and
    landscape.
    Disable fancy sliding screen
    transitions which can be slow
    on some phones.
    Change the default skin.
    Toggle  full-screen mode.
    Choose whether pages should
    open zoomed out or zoomed
    when the browser is in desktop
    mode.
    Turn off auto-completion of
    URL entries.  This is something I
    turn  off as I find the auto
    completion more trouble than
    it's worth. I can enter URLs
    more quickly using the phone's
    default input handler which lets
    me easily  switch between abc,
    T9, symbols and numbers.
    Switch the clock display
    between 12 and 24 hour
    modes.

    There is another undocumented  "Power
    Users" settings menu hidden in Opera Mini.
    To access it enter the URL config: in Opera
    Mini's address bar and select "OK" or "Go
    To".  A screen similar to the one in the
    bottom image should appear.  Power User
    Settings include:
    Large placeholders for images.
    (Default:Yes) If you have
    images turned off or Opera Mini
    doesn't have enough memory
    to load all the images on large
    pages it will show colored
    boxes which by default have
    the same dimensions as the
    original images.  Choosing No is
    supposed to make Opera Mini
    use smaller boxes which I think
    I'd prefer. Unfortunately this
    option doesn't seem to work, I
    still get the large  boxes with it
    set No.Aside: I'd really wish
    Opera Mini would follow web
    standards and display the
    image'sAlt Text when can't
    display an image.
    Fit text to screen (Default:Yes)
    In desktop mode, Opera Mini
    reflows text columns so they fit
    the screen's width for easy
    reading.  This is generally a
    good thing but it can make
    parts of pages look ugly and
    cause overlapping text,
    especially in tabbed menus.
    Changing this setting to "No"
    will cause the page to be
    rendered just like it would be in
    a desktop browser.  While this
    makes the page prettier, it also
    means you have to scroll back
    and forth  horizontally on every
    line to read text. I tried it and
    quickly set it back to the
    default!
    Use bitmap fonts for complex
    scripts (Default=No) Opera mini
    normally uses your phone's
    built in fonts which generally
    have characters for only a
    handful of languages.  If you
    try to view a Chinese webpage
    with a phone that doesn't have
    Chinese fonts all you will see is
    a bunch of squares in the place
    of characters.  Setting this
    option causes Opera to render
    the text of any language your
    phone doesn't support as an
    image of the the text. This will
    make the page load more
    slowly but at least you will be
    able to read it.  Apparently quite
    a few languages supported by
    this feature. I haven't been able
    to find a list but users have
    reported that they were able to
    view Hebrew, Arabic, Japanese,
    Chinese, Korean and  Bengali
    pages using this feature.
    Loading Timeout (default:30)
    This ismy favorite Power User
    setting.  It specifies how
    seconds the Opera Mini server
    should wait for a 3rd party web
    server to respond before
    giving up and displaying a
    timeout message. There are
    some slow sites on the web
    aznd 30 seconds is just too
    short.  Before this error was
    added I'd often get a timeout
    on HowardForums.com or if I
    asked Bloglines to show all the
    posts in my subscribed feeds
    for the last 24 hours.  I set the
    timout to the maximum
    allowed, 3600 seconds, and
    now I never see timeouts.  If a
    site is really down or I get tired
    of waiting, I just press the right
    softkey labeled STOP to make
    Opera mini give up. Pressing
    STOP works fine on my phones
    although it can cause lockups
    on Palm OS devices.  If you
    have one of those you might
    be better off setting the
    timeout to 60 or 120.
    Show feedindex (default:Yes)
    The default causes Opera Mini
    to show an RSS feed icon at the
    top on any page that has a
    feed.  Clicking the icon adds the
    feed to Opera Mini's built in
    feed reader.I don't use the
    Opera Mini reader because it
    doesn't synchronize with
    anything and seems to lose my
    subscribed feeds with every
    server upgrade.  If you are
    serious about feeds you will
    want to use Bloglines or Google
    Reader as your feed reader in
    Opera Mini.  I do like to see the
    feed icon though as it tells me
    when a site has a feed that I
    can add to Bloglines using a
    bookmarklet.
    Keep styling in RSS feeds
    (default:No) As I mentioned I
    don't use Opera Mini's built in
    feed reader but I'd think
    changing this to Yes would
    improve the appearance and
    formatting of feeds in Opera
    Mini. It seems strange that it
    defaults to No.
    Fold linklists (default:Yes) When
    Opera Mini is in mobile view it
    will replace long lists of links
    with a plus sign graphic.
    Clicking the plus sign will
    expand the list.  The intention is
    to make large repetitive menus
    less intrusive.  I set this to No
    as it tends to collapse things I
    want to see like news headlines
    or  the list of unread feeds in
    Bloglines.
    Phonenumber detection
    (default: Yes) Opera Mini tries to
    detect plain text phone
    numbers in web pages and turn
    them in click to call links.  When
    this feature first came out is
    was buggy and tended to treat
    "1 2 3 4"  page menus on web
    forums etc. as phone numbers
    so that clicking them tried to
    dial 1234 instead of loading the
    next page.  That bug has been
    fixed and I don't see any
    reason to disable the very
    useful phone number detection
    feature.
    Minimum phone number length
    (Default:9) Numbers less than
    this length will never be
    detected as phone numbers. US
    phone numbers are 10 digits so
    you could set it to that,
    although leaving at nine seems
    to work fine.
