The other day I completed a blog post on my phone using the WordPress iPhone app. I actually post from my phone or my ipad quite frequently, and I rarely ever fire up my old (aka super duper slow) laptop because I find it really cumbersome. After I clicked publish, I visited my blog in order to see how the post displayed. Part of the reason I did this was because a friend had told me that my posts were difficult to read from their phone. They were right:
I then visited my blog from my ipad, and was happy to discover that it looks pretty good on a tablet ” better than how it looks on my dinosaur laptop:
I then reviewed my Google Analytics and found that over 30% of my site traffic visit from mobile browsers ” either from a smartphone or a tablet. Wow! That’s huge! This number actually makes total sense to me because after getting my iPad last year, I’ve pretty much cast my laptop aside. (This means I also visit other blogs from my iPad or iPhone).
So in an effort to provide an alternative to my mobile visitors, I decided to install the wp-touch plugin. This plugin automatically detects the browser that visitors are using, and displays the content in a mobile friendly manner:
The problem is I have quite a few things on my blog’s sidebar that I would LOVE for my mobile visitors to have access to. Things like links to my previous posts, my facebook fan page, my subscribe widget, ads by advertisers, my Ã…”about me Ã‚Â section etc …
Question: Can anyone suggest a GOOD mobile theme that I can easily customise to include some of my sidebar stuff (perhaps under the post)? Will I need a separate mobile switcher plugin?
Please help me all you WordPress gurus!
