Add a mobile version to your Drupal site

Martin Joergensen 1 July 2010
Type:  Session in official program

This session will go through some different ways of making a parallel version of your Drupal site suited for smartphones like the iPhone and Android phones.

This is NOT about making apps, but about adapting themes, templates, views and other odds and ends to make your site look nice – or at least be useful – on the small screen and potentially limited facilities.
This is not rocket science, but there are some pitfalls and some areas which require more work – and some where it's close to impossible to adapt look and function to the small screen – but in general it's easy to customize news, articles, discussions and much more to fit the limited screens on mobile devices.
