Look, im an iPhone user, and i want to be able to view my site on my iPhone, without zooming in.

So i was wondering, if it were possible to make every page into 2 sections, so like when you view on a computer, it will view the normal page view, and when you visit the site on a mobile ( in my case, a iPhone/iPod Touch ) it will automatically load up the mobile view.

And when the iphone is in landscape, the site layout will go to the right size.

Is this possible?

I know, i could just make a new site, and resize everything to a max width of 320px/480px for landscape but im lazy, and i cant maintain 2 sites, i dont really want to add the same stuff to 2 different sites...

A good example of this would be http://www.deviantART.com/

Thanks for your time,

Hi,

Haven't tried it yet but check out http://www.mofuse.com
It looks like you can just type in your url and it converts it for mobile.

good luck

kershnee i mean, a part of the yola buiolder on a mac or pc thast will let us make our site that we have on yola compatible with a mobile phone. eg. you view yourname.yolasite.com on your iphone, and it is the right size and formatted to how you want on the mobile phone of your choice ( eg. iphone ) although, a yola iphone app would be great, il buy it, if it was 100 bucks!

Right now we don't have the option to create an iphone or mobile friendly version of your site. Hopefully this is something we work on in future, but as Kershnee mentioned - we can't make any definite promises at this stage.

This is a need guys. Yola, please introduce a reasonable way for people to view our websites on Mobile. Currently with or without the Silver Mobile Publishing, the website does not display a background image among other faults. (Also getting frustrated with your customer service, or lack-thereof - Employee = Sanja).

Mobile publishing simplifies your website so that it is easily viewed on mobile devices which is actually why the website background is disabled for mobile publishing.

Sanja is a senior support representative who always has our customers best interests at heart. If you have a specific concern you would like us to address we are happy to do so and we will all work hard to ensure your problem is solved and you are satisfied.

Hey I'm about to use http://mobify.me on Rapitweet, but I'm not sure about keeping the Yola Link? Should I leave it on the mobile site?

Hi Callum, do you mean that http://mobify.me takes the Yola Link off of your site? Or do you have Yola Silver?

I don't have Yola Silver, but I was wondering if it was OK to take the link off on the mobile site?

Oh yeah. I don't know about that. But I know the CSS hack to remove it but I wont ever use it because it is against the TOS to remove it on the regular site. But I don't know about the Mobile site, an employee will have to answer that.

Hello Callum,
Nathan is correct, we ask that our free Yola customers abide by our rules with keeping the Yola link on the bottom of their websites. We are very glad to offer the option to remove the Yola link with the purchase of Yola Silver. Yola Silver also offers many fantastic features. You can see them here: Yola Silver FAQ.
Cheers!

Correct, Nathan. We advise our customer not to violate our Terms of Services, whether it is on their website that is being viewed on a computer or on a cell phone if it was created with Yola. We would greatly appreciate Callum promoting the company that he used to create his free site with!

Rio, I think when mobile sites come out later on down the road (in Yola's plans) that you wont have to zoom in to read stuff on your page on iPhones and other smart phones because they will be a one-column site and wont require zooming. (mobile site)

As I mentioned above, you could use Mobify.me The one that Diane posted a while back looks like it is some type of CMS now. I could be wrong though.
