Make the cache writable

NB: the web server needs to have write-access to the image cache folder wp-content/plugins/wordpress-mobile-pack/plugins/wpmp_transcoder/c. If you have installed the plugin with WordPress 2.7, this should already be the case. Otherwise, or if you see errors when the plugin tries to resize images, you will need to set the permissions on that folder appropriately.

Ensure that the c directory flags are rwxrwxrwx, or whatever you choose in order to be web-server-writable:

wordpress $> cd wp-content/plugins
plugins $> cd wordpress-mobile-pack/plugins/wpmp_transcoder
wpmp_transcoder $> sudo chmod 777 c
wpmp_transcoder $> ls -al
-----------------------------------------------------------------
drwxrwxrwx  3 root  staff    102 20 Apr 10:08 c
-rwxrwxrwx  1 root  staff  13003 20 Apr 10:43 wpmp_transcoder.php</pre>

Make the themes directory writable

NB: the web server also needs to have write-access to the themes folder wp-content/themes, as it installs themes in that directory as part of the plugin activation. If you have installed the plugin with WordPress 2.7, this may already be the case. Otherwise, or if you see errors when activating the plugin, you will need to set the permissions on that folder appropriately.

Ensure that the themes flags are rwxrwxrwx, or whatever you choose in order to be web-server-writable, using a similar technique to that above.

Comprehensive setup

A more comprehensive setup process and guide to configuration is as follows. If you are installing the plugin through the admin dashboard, you'll be able to skip most of the early steps.

  1. Locate your WordPress install on the file system
  2. Extract the contents of baap-mobile-version.zip into wp-content/plugins
  3. In wp-content/plugins you should now see a directory named baap-mobile-version
  4. Ensure the wp-content/themes directory and wpmp_transcoder/c cache directory are web-server-writable, as described above.
  5. Login to the WordPress admin panel at http://yoursite.com/wp-admin
  6. Go to the 'Plugins' menu.`
  7. You should see 'Mobile Switcher' in the list. If not, check steps 2 and 3.`
  8. Click 'Activate' for that plugin.`
  9. In wp-content/themes you should now see a selection of new directories including mobile_pack_base, mobile_pack_blue etc.
  10. Go to the 'Themes' page in the 'Appearance' menu (or 'Design' in WordPress v2.6 or earlier)
  11. You should see a number of mobile themes in the list. If not, check steps 8 and the permissions on the theme directory. NB do NOT select one of these themes. If you do so, even your desktop users will receive a mobile theme. The selected theme here should reflect what you want your desktop users to continue to see, and you'll configure the mobile theme choice separately in the switcher settings.
  12. Go to the 'Mobile Switcher' page in the 'Appearance' menu (or 'Design' in WordPress v2.6 or earlier)
  13. Choose a switcher mode:
    • 'Disabled' removes switching and all users receive the desktop theme
    • 'Browser detection' means that the switcher will try to identify if your user has a mobile device
    • 'Domain mapping' requires you to provide a different domain for your mobile users to access the site
    • 'BOTH' (recommended) enables a combined algorithm that uses recognition and domain usage for the best user experience
  14. If you are using 'domain mapping' (or the combined approach), ensure all your relevant domains are resolving to this single WordPress installation. This may require you to configure your DNS and web server configurations.
  15. Choose the theme to be used for your mobile users.
  16. Users can choose whether to toggle between sites. Decide whether you want this link to appear in the theme footer. Alternatively, you can enable the 'Mobile Switcher Link' widget in the 'Widgets' admin menu.
  17. Go to the 'Widgets' menu and select which of the currently enabled desktop widgets you wish to have displaying on your mobile theme.
  18. Enable your blog for inclusion in the mpexo mobile blog directory.
  19. Take a quick look at the other mobile admin settings and widgets available.
  20. You're all done!
