WordPress Mobile Pack – Easy Going Theme

So many people are on the go, reading the web from their phones, that a web designer needs to think about how a site will look on a tiny screen. Fortunately, if one does a site in WordPress, there is an easy solution.

This morning I added a Mobile Switcher via WordPress Mobile Pack to this blog. One can now easily read the posts on a mobile phone in a simple theme. If you are reading the blog from a desktop, it has the Panorama theme (or my version of it). Here’s how it looks with a mobile theme:

The directions to install are simple, too:

On WordPress v2.7 and later, the installation is as follows:

  1. Go to the ‘Plugins’ / ‘Add new’ menu
  2. Upload wordpress-mobile-pack.zip then press ‘Install now’.
  3. Activate the switcher plugin. Change its settings as required.
  4. Select which desktop widgets are to appear on the mobile theme.
  5. Enjoy.

When I was about to install this on a client’s site a few months ago, I was pleased to get a response via Twitter from the developer, James Pearce, about the mobile pack. That’s what I call good customer service.

Have you had any experience with a mobile theme?

  1. This is great! I have installed a mobi switcher on my static sites and had been searching for one for my blog. I have to admit I haven’t researched it diligently, though. Your post on this made my searching task much quicker. I’ve downloaded the plugin and will install and configure today. Thank you.

  2. Thanks Leora I am looking for a new WordPress theme for a blog I am about to start giving music production tips to aspiring producers. This is good information.

    1. Glad you find it useful. It is a very simple theme – one issue I do find is every time there is an upgrade, if you have ever made any edits to the theme, you have to re-add them manually each time. So it’s fastest to leave this mobile theme as it comes.

  3. Love wordpress 🙂 Every site today should take a look at how their website behaves on ex. Iphone. If not you probably loose out on a huge market – just not now – but in the future!
    Nice mobile pack you’re shared here Leora 🙂
