Video: Welcome

Hi, I am Morten Rand-Hendriksen, and I am here to show you some mobile plug-ins for your WordPress site. Welcome to WordPress Mobile Solutions. In this course, we will take a close look at some different plug-ins you can use to quickly make your WordPress powered site mobile friendly. First, we'll take a look at the WordPress Mobile Pack plug-in that allows you to switch themes depending on whether the visitor is using a mobile device or a regular computer, and that provides you with some basic mobile themes. Then we will look at the WP Mobile Detector plug-in, which provides similar functionality to the WordPress Mobile Pack, but in a different package and with different results.
