How Does Your WordPress Blog Look As A Mobile Website?

If you have a blog, don’t assume it will translate perfectly to mobile: Chances are, it has at least 2 columns, graphics and is set for a screen width that’s (at absolute minimum) 760 px wide.

Besides, even if it was able to load in and emerge with a readable format, you need to remember that many people are paying heavily for each megabyte downloaded on their mobiles (not to mention for the time)… and they’re not going to wait ten minutes for all your graphics and plug-ins to load.

One superb and very user-friendly plug in is WordPress Mobile edition. If you can’t find it by searching the plug-in section via your blog Dashboard, you can easily download it from WordPress.org’s plug-in section. (It even allows comments – something that is often a problem.)

According to WordPress.org, this plug-in works particularly well on Blackberries, iPhones, Androids, touch phones, all wireless, and PDA.

If you’d like to customize your blog theme, a plug-in you might like is MobilePress. This one isn’t available at WordPress.org, but you can find it on its home site, mobilepress.co.za/.

It’s biggest benefit: Allowing you to use customised themes, and it also allows specific themes for the iPhone, as well as the Opera Mini browser and Windows CE Mobile. (Surprisingly simple to install!)

So there you have it: 2 fantastic plug-ins to help your WordPress blog go mobile.
