New Mobile Site & Sidebar

I’ve been wanting to add a few upgrades to the Spontaneous Triplets Blog for a while now. I’ve finally found the time to get them “wired up”.

Mobile Site

Mobile Site – I frequently browse this site on my iPhone 4 and thought it would be cool to make it smart phone friendly. So, I created a minified version of the blog and serve it by default to visitors using any modern smart phone. Simply visit the blog using an iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, or Blackberry device to automatically see the mobile friendly version. If you want to switch back to the standard site, there’s a link in the footer.

Sidebar – I’ve retrofitted the blog with a shiny new sidebar. Exciting stuff, right?! Esther and I wanted to link to some of our favorite spontaneous triplets blogs and this seemed like the best place to do it. Now that the site is “widgetized” we’ll be able to add even more fun stuff here in the future.

    Very cool. Going through WordPress.com, I’m not able to do a slick, specially-formatted mobile version like this. I just have to use their pre-fab one, which is nice, but it doesn’t look anything like my site.

    Thanks for the link on the side, brother. Appreciated!

      Thanks Jeremy. Glad you like! Yeah, when hosted on WP.com you’re a bit limited. But, not too bad which is nice. They really do a good job keeping it about the same as if you were to host yourself.

      I just wanted to see what I could come up with in regards to the mobile site/theme. Turned out pretty well. Now, I just need to figure out a way to show our photos section in a more mobile friendly way. Doesn’t really work currently but oh well ;-)

      Oh, and no worries on the link. Thank you as well for doing the same!
