WordPress PDA & iPhone

WordPress PDA plugin enables the wordpress blog viewable for PDA and iPhone browsers. It is really simple plugin which detects the browser agent and loads a simple theme on fly. The plugin comes with a theme folder which acts like normal theme with all the functionality of wordpress theme.

The plugin doesn’t have any advanced option to control. If you want to customize you can do it with the theme files.

Installation of this plugin is simple and straight forward. Just extract the files in you wordpress plugins folder. And in the admin activate the plugin

Once you activate the plugin you will not be seeing any magic in your admin menus or any trace of this plugin :-). To see this plugin in action you have browse your site using a pda. I have installed the plugin in my blog and this is how it looks from a pda browser.

To enable your blog for pda users just download and activate 😉

Please note iPhone theme is still in beta testing stage. I will be working on more updates on the same soon. Please read the FAQ if you want to disable iPhone theme integration.

Thanks to Martin Loyer for adding theme language support and French Translation.

Thanks to Zombix for providing a working demo of the pda plugin

  1. all the rss feed (links) disappear from the category lists when viewed via the PDA plugin.

    I’ve seen this a few times reading the comments.

    If the logon was right at the top of the homepage (if not logged in). In connections-reloaded the login is a widget which gets lost

  2. Thank you for this. It is very nicely done, and works like a charm on my MDA w/WM5. My normally image-heavy site is gorgeous in Opera Mobile

  3. Thanks for this great plugin! understand UTF-8 – most blogs are coded like this – so special characters aren’t displayed correctly.

  4. Great Plugin … gonna use it on my site but I have a quick question … I am frequent reader .. just tend to keep quiet in the back but I was wondering if you have looked into offer updates via sms. Several sites that I check out everyday offer this … they offer it through FeedM8. I think you should check it out. I would subscribe via sms as I would be instantly notified when your site is updated. I just seen a review on http://www.EverythingWebRelated.com that talked about FeedM8. I would check it out!

  5. That is incredibly helpful – thank you. I think it’s great that PDA mobility is becoming mainstream. It’s been way too long, and the industry (if you ask me) is way behind in terms of mobile browsing. It seems like everyone just put it on the back burner, and there was such little development around the mobile format.
    This is fantastic. I’ll definitely be looking at this and loading it for my blog straight away.
    Looking forward to seeing if Google is, as rumor has it, working on a mobile phone…
