Cool WordPress Mobile Plugin

If you are in search of a WordPress plugin that will convert your entire site into a mobile compatible blog site, then it won’t be that hard to do. All you need to do is to install a plugin in you WordPress blog and Wha La! you blog will now have a mobile version. When you use a standard browser in your PC like Internet Explorer or Firefox, you won’t notice any change because only a mobile browser can see the mobile version. The plugin automatically detects a mobile browser and if you use your mobile, you can see how it works. So far, the mobile version will not look like your original blog site and look simpler (mostly text). But with a little tweaking you can put a logo on the header to make the template as close as your original site. You can check my blog here http://www.junkfoodie.com to see what I did.

The plugin I’m talking about is made by Alex King and it’s becoming popular right now and haven’t read anything about affecting search engine ranking like the one I read here ( WURFL killed my ranking ). So without much ado, just download the plugin here: WordPress Mobile Edition

How to install it:

1. Copy the wp-mobile.php file in your wp-content/plugins directory in your hosting using any FTP program.

2. Copy the wp-mobile directory in your wp-content/themes directory in your hosting using any FTP program.

3. Click the ‘Activate’ link for WordPress Mobile Edition on your Plugins page (in the WordPress admin interface)

Hi – I’ve got another great option for you – and it’s better than the one you’ve already talked about!

It’s called the Wapple Architect Mobile Plugin for WordPress and it mobilizes your blog. It works for every single device, from a WML phone to a brand new swanky phone with XHTML. Images are dynamically resized and you get the option to really customize your blog any way you want.

In addition, you can upload mobile logos, style your site so the mobile version matches the website and you retain your brand identity. You also get loads of control over mobile SEO.

If you fancy giving it a go, the URL is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wapple-architect/ – it’d be great to hear your feedback!
