Wordpress Plugin

Mobile WordPress Plugin, does your blog have it? Just because you have a blog, it doesn’t mean that it’s mobile-friendly. Most often than not, blogs have 2 columns, has graphics, ads and the screen size is set at 760 px wide which is the minimum.

 

And even if your blog is able to load on mobile phones with a readable format, you must understand that people pay loads of money for every megabyte that they download on your phone and they’re not going to wait for half an hour for your pages, graphics and plug-ins to load properly.

 

This is why it’s important to have a user-friendly WordPress Plugin for your blog to become mobile-friendly which is WordPress Mobile edition. Search for it using your blog’s Dashboard. If it’s not there, download it from WordPress.org’s plugin section.
