    I just wondered if anyone has been able to make their site compatible with such mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, etc. I am not a technical person. I just wondered if this is even possible with WordPress.

    Have you looked at WPtouch?

    Hi erikacon,

    From the number of plugins available, it looks like creating a mobile version of your site should be fairly easy. A search for the terms WordPress for mobile gave me the following results (just to name a few):

    WordPress Mobile Pack

    WordPress Mobile Edition

    WordPress Mobile by Mobify

    MoFuse WordPress Plugin

    Hope these help get you started in the right direction for setting up a mobile version of your blog!

    What is the advantage of having a site for mobile devices? I thought my sites showed up anyway - or am I wrong?

    Hello again erikacon,

    The advantage is usability for your visitors. If people have a hard time viewing your site on smaller screens, they are less likely to visit your site when using a mobile device and also less likely to recommend your site to other potential visitors. These days, so many people are using mobile devices for a large part of their time online so it's a good idea to have a site that's easily viewable on mobile devices as well.

    Hope this helps!

    OK, that makes sense. Thank you.
