FAQ

I activated the plugin and nothing happened?

This plugin will only redirect users who view the site on a mobile device and you must first fill in redirects in the metabox on pages and posts.

What format should I add the mobile URL in the metabox?

You should add the full mobile URL including the “http://”. For example: http://example.com

What if my homepage is my default blog posts or blog index?
