WPTOUCH Mobile WordPress Plugin

WPTOUCH Mobile WordPress Plugin

Adding the WPTOUCH Mobile Plugin to your WordPress site, and activating it, makes your site mobile device friendly. There are many options in the free version, but I see that there is a Pro version for about $29 for one site, with other options. If we get serious about using WordPress then I will look closer at the paid version of this plugin.

I downloaded the plugin install file from the site above and then went through the simple Add Plugin à Upload process which completed successfully in about 10 seconds. I then activated the plugin for a site and took a quick look at the settings for the plugin.

I then scannected (scanned the QR image created by the Firefox addon, Mobile Barcoder, into my phone) the URL for the site from the QR code. The site pulled up in the mobile version.
