Give WordPress the iPhone Look: wpTouch Plugin

Hey there! I'm currently working on a CLI tool to deploy WordPress apps to DigitalOcean. Check it out! It's free and open source.

I don’t want to talk much about the wpTouch plugin, cause it’s all well documented over here. I’m writing this post for those of you who are afraid to make the first step to the terrific handheld view. Yeah, iPhone has got the Safari browser which can show my page just as it is shown on PC, and it even executes javascript! That’s the main reason why people don’t bother switching (others think that they’ll get the iPhone view on PC, duh!). But you… You should try it! Look at what I got to!

It took me about 10 minutes to set this whole thing up. It was messy with the WP Super Cache plugin serving cached pages to my iPhone, but thanks god I noticed that checkbox called ‘Mobile device support’. That saved me loads of time. Works okay now. Don’t forget to add your Google Analytics tracking code to track your mobile visitors!

BTW check out the code snippet I wrote for my brand new huge tag cloud thanks to the PHP-Exec plugin and the power of WordPress.

  • You totally rock man. I look @ ur blog from my iPhone and now I'm liking it even more! Well done!

  • Glad to see this information. I think WPtap and WPtouch are all very powerful. WPtap has more themes than WPtouch. And their customer support are great. I like their design and service.
