WordPress and Mobile Themes

Category: BloggingPhil @ 5:51 pm

I ran across a website on my phone the other day and was very impressed with the presentation. I had tried some “mobile friendly” WordPress themes in the past, but was never very excited by them; they always looked too bland on high-resolution devices.  A quick Google search turned up the popular WPtouch plug-in. I was a curious how the plug-in actually integrated with WordPress, as I did not want to replace my current theme with a dedicated mobile theme. The WPtouch theme was the perfect solution (WordPress Site Installation).  I could keep my rich-content theme for high-resolution devices, and WordPress would automatically vend the alternate presentation for the low-resolution devices, such as the the iPhone and Blackberry.  I just can’t put my Droid in that low-resolution group, the screen is just too nice! Additionally, user’s can easily switch back to the primary theme by clicking a button at the bottom of the page, if they prefer that presentation.
