Learning To Make A Mobile Website With WordPress Plugins

Author : Kenneth Holland


Mobile internet. The future has arrived. Everybody now seems to have a cellphone to gain access to the web plus more importantly they're in fact utilizing it to find web pages online.

I'd suppose everyone would love to have a smartphone optimized alternative of their blog/website however in previous years that's turned out to be a challenging project.

If you actually were not really an expert website coder or if you didn't have the bucks to pay for a designer to build a custom mobile solution to suit your needs subsequently having a mobile internet site or blog wasn't a priority.

That has all changed now, especially for WordPress people. Nowadays there are a number of high-quality plug ins readily available for the open source blogging service, and the best part is the majority of them are free.

The 'how to' portion is very simple. Through the use of one of the plugins listed below, you merely install and click on a few buttons. Then you'll have a mobile internet site!

I go over 3 popular, excellent WordPress cellular plugins here listed below that you should consider:

WP Touch

WPTouch is among the more well-known WordPress wireless plugins as it is already utilised by many users. An advantage of WP Touch is that it's surprisingly easy to install and configure. All you do is upload the plugin, turn it on, and then go through one single page of choices to configure it how you want.

It looks excellent 'right out of the box' after you configure it, you are able to select which webpages you would like to display and you can include advertisements to it such as Adsense to be able to generate income from your mobile phone site.

WP Touch is actually the mobile plugin that powers my web site, KennethHolland.com.

Wapple Architect Mobile Plugin

Wapple is a comprehensive option for WordPress mobile users. The main benefit of Wapple is definitely the level of choices you're able to do to configure your mobile website. You can add a custom header and images as well as design and style your site to appear a lot like your regular website.

The downside is it takes a significant amount of time to set every thing up. I have used it, and frankly it's rather a pain. Nevertheless, I am considering deploying it down the road once I have extra time and resources to spend on it. It's a high quality plugin.

WordPress Mobile Pack

WordPress Mobile Pack is the one other high quality plugin. I have just tested it (not really used it) however I know many website owners who do use the plugin and love it. The plugin is updated regularly to help keep pace with bugs and WordPress software revisions and that's a necessity in my opinion.

The only real obvious stumbling block that I've seen is that the styles are tricky to modify except if you are knowledgeable with that sort of thing.

Therefore…

You can't screw up using any of the preceding plug ins to get your WordPress blog mobile friendly. They each perform quite well and each one have distinct pros and cons.

Also, there are many others on the WordPress.org website and that you may wish to try. These are most certainly not the only ones around so there could possibly be another alternative that would be best for you.

In case you're not sure which one suits your objectives you should try all of them. They're simple to ramp up and try out. The real key here is to decide on one and get your mobile optimized blog going. The future is here and also the time is now.
