Well, it’s about time I re-launched the mobile version, after all 10-20% of the traffic here during the weekdays can come from mobile devices.
Yesterday I altered one of the standard themes, wrote a customised mobile site and after testing on numerous devices, it’s been launched.
It’s been set up so that if you’re on a mobile decide (other than an iPad) that you’ll be redirected to the heavily cut down version which includes the basic functionality.
- Home link
- Finger-friendly links
- Image optimisation
- A method to get back to the main site if desired
Being a speed freak, I’ve also ripped out (blocked) the really large overhead files as well, so that instead of the total page weight being around 183Kb, that it comes in at a tenth of this at 18Kb. You can test mobile sites here http://ready.mobi/results.jsp?uri=http%3A%2F%2Flastdropofink.co.uk&locale=en_EN
add_action( ‘wp_print_styles’, ‘my_deregister_styles’, 100 );
wp_deregister_style( ‘tubepress’ );
wp_deregister_script( ‘tubepress’ );
