Turn you WordPress into a mobile friendly site, instantly

If you are viewing this site using your smartphone or iPad/iPod you will notice that the design has changed. We have installed a new plugin on the site today that displays a special theme for mobile browsers.

The plugin is called WPtouch and is freely available from the WordPress plugin repository here. it comes with a built in mobile friendly theme with an Apple style design that works.

Everything is there to make your mobile users at ease with a nice layout the will fit the screen and display your posts and pages nicely.

It also includes ajax loading for content so you loose less time waiting for the browser to load and more time actually reading. Having the content fitting the view port is much better when using a small screen. No more horizontal scroll and zoom.

There are loads of options in the backend to customize the theme but if it’s not enough you can always get your hands dirty and change the code. It is WordPress code after all and if you are familiar with theme design then you should be able to get by quite easily.

With the rapid increase in mobile browsing over the past few month this is something every site should consider.
