Update — Due to issues with Disqus comments not being visible. I have switched back to the regular web view. Sorry.
Back in November, I posted about trying to get my blog “mobile friendly”. Becuase I post links to here on Twitter and many people are tweeting on a smartphone, I really wanted to make life simple for my mobile readers. As pretty as my blog might be now (thanks, BigDaddy for my header), it doesn’t look good squished on the little screen of an iPhone.
I guess that is one of the downsides of the Blogger platform; unlike WordPress, it didn’t have have switch to turn on a “mobile friendly” version. After trying a few different third party applications and adding and deleting code from the html from my blog, I decided to wait. Okay, I got frustrated and gave up. Either way, readers go to see a squishy version of my blog on their smartphone.
Since I use Blogger in Draft (dashboard URL is http://draft.blogger.com), this gives me a few early features that aren’t released platform wide. At the beginning of December, they posted this on the Blogger in Draft blog…
I jumped to figure out how to do this for my blog! It was the answer I was looking for!
Here is how to do it!
And from that same blog post,
In order to activate mobile templates, simply go to Dashboard > Settings > Email & Mobile tab, enable the mobile template option and then save settings.
It’s that easy!! You can do it too!
If you change your blog, let me know and I’ll check it out on my iPhone!!
