If I create mobile.frodotraveller.com is it possible to make sure that if someone visits frodotraveller.com on a mobile device it automatically detect that it is being visited by a mobile device and redirect it to the mobile site. I know how to create a mobile site but I am not sure how to redirect it.

Is there a way to create a mobile site for free? If there is, tell me, and I'll do some fiddling, see if I can't come up with an answer

Hi FrodoTraveller,

Although Yola does not have Mobile App Version that allows you to create and edit your Yola site on a mobile phone, you can view your site on certain mobile phones. This all depends on the type of phone you have, but many new mobile phones allow you to do this. Most websites created on Yola will not be optimized for viewing on the small screen of mobile phones, and it is not yet possible for sites to auto-detect that they are being visited by a mobile phone.

There is a service you can use to view your regular web pages and blog from your mobile phone - http://www.google.com/gwt/n. Just type your site's address and hit "Go". This Google Transcoder service reformats the layout of websites and also splits large web pages into multiple parts so navigation becomes very easy. If are on a slow connection or pay for every byte of data that you download, I'd suggest turning off the "Show Images" option so web pages will load faster and you also play less charges to the service provider.

I hope this is helpful!
