Posts Tagged ‘wordpress’ goes mobile!

If you do browse this site with your computer, chances are you didn’t notice anything. On the contrary, if you browse it with a mobile device (an iPhone for example), it’s kind like a new user experience!

In fact, in almost 1 minute, I made this site adapted to mobile browsing. How? Just used my friend Google who found WPTouch, a WordPress plugin which in fact behaves like a configurable theme, but only on mobiles.

WPTouch features are impressive (and free). Most notably, supported user-agents include: Android, BlackBerry9500, BlackBerry9530, CUPCAKE, dream, iPhone, iPod, incognito, webOS, webmate.

If you own a WordPress blog and want to offer to users the best user experience, I would recommend using this plugin.

WordPress 2.7.1 upgrade

March 8th, 2009 No comments

Noticed anything different on this blog? No? Yet, I upgraded WordPress from version 2.5 to version 2.7.1. Since you had no problems viewing this post, we can safely admit the upgrade process was entirely successful.

The upgrade process is very simple since WordPress is developed in PHP. Just copy (and sometimes overwrite) the contents of the wordpress folder to your webserver and presto, you got the new version. I must admit I was a little afraid something would go wrong… And what to do in this case? Prior to the upgrade, I did a backup of WordPress database using WordPress Database Backup plugin.

Now everything is fine. And Mango theme is upgraded too.
