    Default We figured out wordpress mobile (sort of)

    Hey guys and gals,

    The past few days, Egnited, Rob and myself have been pulling out our hair (well, not literally) to figure out the difference between the wp-mobile theme and plugin and the wordpress-mobile.php plugin. Here is what we have so far:

    The wp-mobile theme (Alex King) is operating without any noticeable CSS. Example: http://angol.mobi.

    The wordpress-mobile.php plugin (by Andy Moore) looks great but admob code must be replaced. Example: http://mobienthusiast.mobi.

    Bottom line: use the Andy Moore plugin by itself, and don't use the Alex King theme unless it gets tweaked for CSS.

    There are a few more wp mobile plug-ins to consider if you want:

    http://pub.mowser.com/wiki/Main/WordPressPlugin
    http://armobi.com.ua/action.php?acti...plugin-mads-wp (readme file is in Russian, but installation is same as like for any other wp plug-in)

    Sorry, coast, I donít speak Russian either. I donít have installed Russian language on my PC so I canít even try to figure out what is written in readme file (Russian cyrillic is different from my language cyrillic). They wrote on the website that you have to unzip file and move content from folder themes to folder themes on your wp blog and to do the same with folder plugins. After that you need to activate plug-in in the wp-admin page and thatís it regarding plug-in installation. I have some problems with xampp on my PC so I canít try it, but I hope that will find time to fix xampp soon and after that Iíll install this plug-in and try to translate it to English.

    I think we should forget the redirection stuff so that new users go to a Full Blog and the mobile users go to a MOBI version may be we can start by developing a mobile friendly wordpress theme afterwards we can develop some plugin to redirect mobi users to the mobi theme while the PC users go the FULL Size original theme ?

    Thanks Ajkula. He's made a great support blog on there and it looks like he is interacting with the people who are posting. I just downloaded the new version of the plugin so I'm looking forward to seeing what he's done to it.
