The Mobile MAD Blog

April 23rd, 2010 | Posted in It's All Geek to Me!

If you’ve happened to visit this blog in the last few days on an iPhone, Android or other mobile device you (hopefully) will have noticed a different look on your hand-held surfing machine courtesy of a great plug-in called WPtouch.

The MAD Blog uses the excellent WordPress blog software, and this plug in automatically formats the blog with a quick loading and easy to use mobile theme when it detects the visitor is using an Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, Goodle Android, Palm Pre or other touch- based mobiles. There are configurable options but it works great right after loading and activation. It cuts down on load times, sacrificing the eye candy for a streamlined interface. Miss the colors and other stuff? A switch at the bottom of the page let’s you go back to the “full site”, and it will even remember your choice until you switch it back to the mobile version.

Several other WordPress blogs I frequent use this great plug-in, including Alan Gardner‘s Daily Cartoonist.

So, enjoy the simplified mobile version of The MAD Blog if you are surfing on-the-go!
