My basic question is How do I make my wordpress page more friendly for mobile viewers?

I have seen some answers such as wptouch, wordpress mobile pack, and mobilepress http ://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mobilepress/ .

All great, however I enjoy my theme and was wondering if there is a way to not-autoload images, and if there are some more versatile themes which can scale to smaller screens.

Thank you in advance for your help.

You probably refer to Responsive themes that are appropriate for both desktops, tablets, mobile phones. This requires some CSS and markup alterations (actually a bit of work and testing) so that a theme looks good in any device including portrait or landscape view in mobile devices.

Unless you want to use a mobile plugin, there are lots of premium themes in markets such as ThemeForest or the Responsive free theme from WPORG repo.

I believe for the most part it is all theme related. The best one I've used is Weaver II which you can try out for free here: http://weavertheme.com/ comes with a mobile version with the theme download I believe. There is a Pro version as well that you can check out here: http://pro.weavertheme.com/

As far as the not autoloading images goes, there was some discussion on this topic over at http://reddit.com/r/wordpress a few weeks ago.

Speaking from experience, themify.me is a great site for responsive themes. Also, if you search "responsive" in the Wordpress.org themes area is pretty cool if you want to develop a child theme.
