Hello,

Thank you for your e-mail. Unfortunately, Yola does not have Mobile App Version that allows you to create and edit your Yola site on a mobile phone. You can however view your site on certain mobile phones. This all depends on the type of phone you have. Many recent 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. However you can use this service to view your regular Webpages and Blog from your mobile phone - http://www.google.com/gwt/n - Simply type the site's address and hit "Go". This Google Transcoder service will reformat 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, just turn off the Show Images option so web pages will load faster and you also play less charges to the service provider.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance!

Hello British TV Idents,

There is a widget facility which automatically directs a mobile phone user to your mobile site You don't have to go through the process of resetting up SEO or a new domain.

widgetbox.com have a mobile site creation facility where you can use elements already used for your conventional site such as RSS feeds, images, google maps, twitter feeds etc. The facility is on their splash screen

The viewer if they come in via phone gets re-directed to this mobile application automatically.

Widgetbox have a basic free option and a paid for option. They will give you 7 days trial of the paid for option if you choose.

I don't believe that you could get a site up and out there in 30 minutes as they suggest. Maybe you could push something out but hardly satisfactory. It still takes time as it is a separate site in effect and there really isn't any automatic conversion of the conventional site to the mobile site. I have played with it and it works really well. The RSS feed that I have worked well and I have an image in each article which appears automatically. I don't have to specifically identify it again.

I suggest you use http://mobify.me for mobile sites! It turns your site into a mobile site! (Only for the people with mobile phones. So if you have a reg. computer, it wont show the mobile version)

Hey everyone,

I'm sure most of you know this now, but Yola has Mobile Sites built into its site builder. Just go to Site > Site Settings > Publishing > Mobile and there is a dialog that pops up with mobile site settings.

This way you don't have to use an external mobile site converter now, unless you still want to then you can, of course.

Hi everyone

I'd like to add on Nathan's post that Mobile Publishing is a Yola Silver feature. But you can try it, and preview the display and test the functionality from the Site Settings dialogue box to which Nathan provided the directions above.

I've been getting requests to make my current Yola Silver Mobile site NetFront-compatible as the browser doesn't seem to detect the site's mobile version. Is the mobile site compatible with Netfront?
