Easily make your WordPress site mobile with WPTouch

If you’re looking to make your WordPress site mobile friendly, there is a plugin out there that can help. WPTouch is a plugin you can find through the “Add New” plugin option on the backend of your site.

The plugin is configurable to give you some options to change its appearance and you don’t have to mess with code. There is even a Pro version which allows even more customizable options and an iPad template. The basic version is free while the Pro version will set you back $39 for one site or $69 for a 5-pack.

The plugin might not be the most beautiful mobile site you’ve seen or allow you all of the options you’d like to have, or make everything mobile-friendly, but for something that’s free and easy to install, beggars can’t really be choosers.

Give it a look and let me know what you think or let us all know of what your staff uses to be mobile-friendly.

    Du siehst ja: es le4uft schon Und ich finde die Ergebnisse recht ordnetadlich, die es lieadfert. Mit Tags und Kategorien arbeite ich ja von Beginn an. Wobei Tags relaadtiv vieladfe4ladtig veradgeadben weradden – Kategorien aber sehr strikt.Eigentlich geht es nun nur darum, die Relevanzeinstellungen so ausadzuadtaadrieadren, dass das Ergebnis sinnadvoll wird. (und schf6n we4re, diese Relavenazzahlen in Klammern hinadter den Links kf6nnadten ausadgeadblenaddet weradden…)Danke ffcr den Tipp; es ist defiadniadtiv besadser (ffcr mich) als das zuvor einadgeadsetzte Plugin.
