WordPress.com Blogs Become More Mobile-Friendly

If you’re among the many bloggers who are using WordPress.com to host your blogs either as a free or premium account, WordPress got some good news for you. All WordPress.com blogs are now mobile-friendly, well at least for the iPhone and Blackberry devices.

Being mobile-friendly means that all blogs hosted on WordPress.com can now be displayed using an optimized WP Touch theme, provided of course that readers are using the iPhone or Blackberry devices when viewing your blogs. Readers with these devices will have easy access to blog posts, pages and archives. In addition, they will also get access to a fancy AJAX commenting and post loading interface. The mobile theme will also scale down blog headers to fit it on the screen of these mobile devices.

But how about your blog readers who are not using the iPhone and Blackberry devices? WordPress.com will be using the modified WordPress Mobile Edition to display your blogs.

Now, take note that this will be the standard default settings for all WordPress.com blogs. So, if you don’t want this feature activated you may disable it by going to Appearance – > Extras in your WordPress.com dashboard and disable “display a mobile theme when this blog is viewed with a mobile browser.”

    Thanks a lot for your interesting post. But I had trouble navigating past your website because I kept getting 502 bad gateway error. Just thought to let you know.
