I'm updating a website selling online services that has a complimentary App acting as a mobile front end to the Joomla v1.5 CMS. The App communicates via a component (com_mobile) using JSON data exchanges. The URL's are typically of the type:
Researching the latest v3.4 Joomla I find that format=raw has been dropped and there is now a Joomla Ajax Interface (com_ajax) component. Nice, but I don't want to break the usability of the nearly 100,000 mobile installations already using the (soon to be legacy) v1.5 url format.
Is there a way to re-introduce the "format=raw" option into the latest version of Joomla? Other suggestions welcome (url rewrite?) ?
