Generating Mobile Version of My Website

Post by budgetbabe » Sun Nov 16, 2014 5:43 pm

I'd like to go about creating a (very simple) mobile version of my site. I don't know where to begin. Is there a mobile theme I could use? I apologize if this has already been discussed elsewhere but I was unable to locate any information on the topic. Thanks!

There are two approaches to this.

There is a plugin called Markup: Mobile Output (serendipity_event_mobile_output) which detects mobile devices and basically emits a different theme for those. As far as I can tell, the plugin is not actively maintained. The visuals are rather, well, limited.

Then there are so called “responsive” themes – namely 2k11 (which is the new default theme for s9y blogs) and resy. Those have been designed to work with (hopefully) any screen resolution without an additional plugin. I may be biased, but I'd recommend to check out 2k11 first, especially since it's pretty easy to customize.

I'm going to check out 2k11 - sounds exactly like the type of solution I was looking for. Thank you so much!

Shameless self-plug: The photo-theme could also work well for you.
