    If you would like to know what the output looks like for mobile deviced but you don't actually have one yourself (or just don't feel like using it), you can use the "User Agent Switcher" for FireFox:


    It enables you to have FireFox present itself as being another browser. Just put some known mobile device User Agent in it and you can see the plugin work on your normal desktop browser.

    Well, it doesn't really matter what you enter as a mobile string since the plugin won't actually behave like the selected browser but just 'tell' the server that it is another browser.

    In other words; just enter ANY mobile browser string to have your WordPress blog present the mobile content. FireFox will then display this content being FireFox, not how the actual 'faked' browser would handle it.

    Take a look at http://www.useragentstring.com/pages/useragentstring.php for a pretty complete list of useragents. Personally I use this string I got from my mobile phone...

    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows CE; IEMobile 7.11)

    ...you could use this one too. Again; it's just a way of 'triggering' the mobile content from your blog. It will ALWAYS look the same, no matter WHAT mobile user-agent you use, as long as it's recognized as being a mobile user-agent. :-)

    PS: If you want to know the user-agent of any browser/device you have yourself, there are many sites on the Internet that will present this information to you. A nice one, without to much unneeded extra junk on it is: http://www.useragent.org/

    Just visit that page using the browser or device you want to know the user-agent string of.
