Option 3 – SiteControl/WordPress Sites Are Already Mobile Enabled!
If you are on our SiteControl/WordPress platform you already have a mobile theme for your site. We’ve included this as part of the whole SiteControl Package.
Out of the box, your Mobile SiteControl site will show all of your current news and even the remainder of your site in a special mobile browser enhanced version. This reduces bandwidth to the mobile user, but still makes all your content available.
However, with a little configuration, your mobile index page can show only news items in the Mobile category so you can specifically target these mobile users with content directly relevant to them. Contact us for information on how to set this up.
