    Default Mobile Version of your site

    After a recent in depth view into my google analytics information, I learned that a solid percentage (about 30%) of my visitors were viewing the site from their mobile devices. Presumably the majority while they were sitting in the driveway, watching the show. This made me think about my site (link in sig) which displays ok on a mobile platform, but is far from easy to navigate, and contains alot of content a mobile visitor would not need. So I decided to dabble in constructing a mobile based site, which focuses primarily on iOS apple devices. My beginning attempts can be seem at http://christmasintownsend.com/mobile . I am using a wordpress plugin called WPtap Mobile detector, which diverts mobile users to my mobile site, which I designed with a little help from this site http://www.createfreeiphoneapps.com/iphone-websites/. I am wondering if anybody else has attempted to do this, and what they found. Also web site critiques would also be greatly appreciated.

    You might also want to check out WPTouch, which is a mobile plug-in for Wordpress.

    Looks like a pretty good plugin, just installed it. The menu is a little hard to find at first, but after you get past that it is rather cool. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I've been playing with jQuery mobile. I did see a WYSIWYG editor for static web sites. It uses HTML5 so it is platform independent. Also if you can do some coding you can easily build dynamic mobile sites.. And best of all it can be viewed on desktops or laptops as well. 1 website for all your devices.

    If you want to get fancy, you should look at "Responsive Web Design". It's a new(ish) web design paradigm where you dynamically move elements based on the viewport size so it works well for Phones, Tablets, and Desktops with large displays. To see a good example, click the following link and re-size your browser from small to large and watch it change dynamically: http://trentwalton.com/
