I have a site setup with content, themes, plugins, and modified code.

However, I want a mobile version.

I googled this and it looked like there use to be plugins that helped with this, but it seems most have been dis-continued.

Is there a strategy for making a site mobile?

  • Do you want the mobile version to be available on separate domain ? like m.foobar.com

1 Answer 1


You have 3 choices

  1. choose a Responsive Theme for your site (Responsive adapts for different screen sizes)
  2. choose a plugin (such as WPTouchPro - which is both plugin and theme)
  3. build a second site which you access at m.example.com, this duplicates all the content and has its own theme

... there is a 4th option ... being polite... there are dozens of great books and websites about WordPress & Mobile Web Development like this one from Wrox

  • if you are bored and want to list the pros and cons of each?...I would think responsive's adaptable theme would be the easiest.

  • that would be totally subjective :) responsive is great but the downside is you have no control over the theme and how it responds. With Plugin its a mix of both :)

  • 4th option is building natively...for the iPhone this would be a Objective C Application.
