What is mobile friendly desing?
Nowadys people use smartphones to surf the internet. So we want to make sure that our blog or website is mobile friendly i.e all the texts and pictures are visible within the screen with no need to zoom in or zoom out or swap the page.
So how exactly you create a mobile friendly blog in WordPress
There are many plugins for doing this, but the one I am using is WP-touch.
You can download and install it in two ways.
The first way is to visit the site www.wordpress.org and click on “Plugin” menu at the top.
Search for “Wptouch” plugin.
Click on “Wptouch” and you will get the following screen.
Click on “Download” button on the right side of the screen.
Now your plugin gets downloaded .
Now log into your wordpress blog and on the left side of the blog select “Plugins” and click on “Add New”
Now you will get the following screen.
Click on “Upload” button.
Now click on “Browse” button and search for the location where your “Wptouch” plugin was downloaded. Most probably it will be in the “Download” folder.
Select the plugin and click on “open”
Now click on the “install Now” button as shown below.
After the plugins gets installed then you need to activate it.
Click on “Activate Plugin”
Now your blog turns into mobile friendly version.
The second way to install the “WPtouch” plugin is to go to the WordPress dashboard.
Select “Plugins” and click on “Add New”
Now in the search box type “Wptouch” and press “Search Plugins” button and you will get the plugin as seen in the screen below.
Now below the plugin name you will see two menu “Details” and “Install Now“. In the above example above I have “Update Now” since I have already installed the plugin.
Now the rest of the process is same as above.
This how your blog turns into mobile friendly.
