George Smyth asked me to do another segment on his One Minute How-To podcast, and I picked this as a topic.
First, log into your dashboard and go to “Plugins.” Select “Add New” from the menu.
Type “WordPress Mobile Pack” into the search box and click the button that says “Search Plugins.”
Click “Install Now.” When the dialog box pops up and asks “Are you sure you want to install this plugin?” click “OK.”
Activate the plugin.
“Once the plugin is activated, you can modify settings under “Appearance.”
The plugin detects mobile browsers automatically. You can decide whether to include a link in your footer so mobile users can choose to see your regular theme instead of the mobile theme, and which mobile theme to use. (There are screenshots in your Themes directory.)
The mobile theme isn’t as pretty, but it makes it possible to read the text on a narrow screen without having to scroll around.
There’s another popular mobile plugin, WPTouch, that people really like, but it’s just gone pro and costs $29. If most of your mobile visitors use touch-screen phones, it might be worth it.
