The WordPress Mobile Pack + HUNT is a complete toolkit to help mobilize your WordPress site. It has a mobile switcher, themes, widgets, and mobile admin panel.
This version differs from original WordPress Mobile Pack on the way that only accepts Hunt as adserver, and ads are showing on header and footer, regardless of widget positioning.
This version it’s meant for Hunt client’s alone.
It includes a mobile switcher to select themes based on the type of user that is visiting the site, a selection of mobile themes, extra widgets, device adaptation and a mobile administration panel to allow users to edit the site or write new posts when out and about.
The pack has been tested on WordPress 2.5.1, 2.6.5, 2.7.1, 2.8.6, 2.9.2, and 3.0. It has been tested on WordPress MU 2.6 in the ‘plugins’, rather than ‘mu_plugins’, mode. PHP 5.x is also highly recommended, although the plugin also works with PHP 4.3.
- All original WordPress Mobile Pack features v1.2.4
- Mobile ad serving capability using HUNT ad server technology
- On a WordPress MU installation, it is not possible to configure the favicon for each site independently within the single mobile theme. You are advised to create multiple derived themes from the mobile base theme, and configure the favicons separately for each.
- Note that if you use a desktop theme that provides unusual, additional page templates, the default mobile theme will not have the corresponding logic. The mobile theme will fall back to showing a default posting list. However, you are able to create new mobile templates just as for the desktop theme. (Copy archives.php as a simple example of an auxiliary page template.)
- If you are using a desktop domain and a mobile domain, it is not currently possible to host them on different sub-directory locations (eg
http://mysite.mobi/). Both versions of the site must either be at the top-level of the domain or in the same sub-directory.
- W3 Total Cache does not play well with mobile plugins, you can read how to make it work at Getting W3 Total cache to work with WordPress Mobile Pack until a new release comes (very soon!)
