This course shows how to create a mobile version of an existing WordPress web site by leveraging ready-made solutions. Author Morten Rand-Hendriksen demonstrates how to install and configure three different plugins: WP Mobile Detector, which automatically detects the visitor's mobile device type and displays an auto-formatted theme; WPtouch, which transforms a site into an iPhone application-style theme with just a few clicks; and the WordPress Mobile Pack toolkit for making more fine-tuned adjustments. Morten also covers modifying the appearance of the mobile site and tracking its analytics and other stats. This course offers a variety of ways to get a stylish and nimble mobile site up and running quickly, without having to edit any code.
An alternative to the WordPress Mobile Pack plug-in can be found in the WP Mobile Detector plug-in. These two plug-ins are very similar and they have many of the same functionalities, the main difference lies in the type of themes that they shipped with, and how these themes are managed. We can install the WP Mobile Detector plug-in the same way we installed the other plug-ins by going to the Dashboard, going to Plug-ins, and before I install it, I have to make sure that my WordPress Mobile Pack plug-in is deactivated so it doesn't clash with a new plug-in I am going to install.
So if you go into plug-ins and WordPress Mobile Pack is Activated, click on Deactivate to deactivate it, then we can go to Add New, type in wp mobile detector, and here is the WP Mobile Detector, Install it, Activate the Plug-in, and once it's installed I can open the site on my mobile device, and I see that I immediately get this mobile-friendly theme that I can use to access the content.
You'll also notice that this theme looks quite different from the one that came with the WordPress Mobile Pack. This is a more modern looking theme, and if you like this kind of look, then you may want to use this Plug-in instead.
