Hey, yeah, yeah, I know… I’m on vacation at Navarre Beach. But I had to drop a quick post to tell you about what I just found!
Since I crossed over to the dark side and got an iPhone, I’ve been trying to figure out how to format jtrigsby.com for mobile devices. Since I’ve been browsing with the iPhone these mobile formatted sites keep showing up so there has to be some way to do it, right?
Well it happens that, like most things WordPress, there’s a plugin for that! Its called MobilePress (you can download MobilePress here). It took literally less than 30 seconds to install and works great right out of the box.
There are a few configuration options and even some different themes you can install for MobilePress, sometime after the vacation maybe there will be a chance to play with them a bit. When I do, you can bet there will be a post about it.
If you have an iPhone or other mobile device check it out and let me know what you think. Any and all feedback is welcome and encouraged.

Well, its taken a little while, but I’m finally getting around to tinkering with MobilePress… and I love it more now than I did at the beach! Themes for it are a little sparce, but that’s ok. What it does with the default theme is super and much better than having to do all that layout by hand!
And of course, if you have multiple blogs, the option to set them all up in MobilePress is awesome. It allows for easy switching from one to the other. The only thing that gets me sometimes is that it doesn’t update posts automatically. In other words, if you make a post with the online interface, then access the site with the MobilePress interface, you have to force a reload… I seem to always forget that!
Overall, it is an awesome app and definitely one you should have in your All-Star Bloggers toolbox!
