WordPress revises WP on mobiles

Posted on October 20, 2009 by Blog Design Journal

As mobile phones become more advanced with many offering access to the web, there has been more people accessing and updating blogs and free WP themes from their cell phones. Whether it’s an iPhone, Blackberry or a smart phone, many are taking advantage of the access to post and read blogs on their phones. WordPress reports that more than 60 million page views a month originated from mobile devices.

In order to make blogs more user-friendly on mobiles, WordPress just launched two new themes that will automatically be formatted to blogs that are pulled up from a mobile device. For the iPhone and Android phones, a modified version of WPtouch will be displayed for modern web browsers. For all the other mobile devices, an older edition of WordPress Mobile will be displayed.

This is mainly to speed up the loading process for those who access blogs on their mobiles. So visitors will see a simple page with a scaled-down header and will feature the abilities to access posts, pages, archives and other content. It will also allow access to comment and load posts.

Deciding to make all the blogs automatically appear this way on mobiles was so all of them would load quickly. Some content in the past had been slow at loading or sometimes wouldn’t load at all. By doing this, WordPress clears itself of these issues and can ensure quality service for mobile users. It’s always fun to see new applications come out for WordPress and other blogging platforms. Blogging is made easier with quick access to the web and can continue to grow in the future.
