Lets get back on topic, so if you want to make your WordPress site mobile ready, here is what I did for my WordPress site. First, go to Google and do a search for the term mobile edition plugin, it should be the very first result Google returns.
Download the plugin and save it to the place on your computer that you like download stuff to. Now for the hard part, the file is in zip format so you have to unzip the file into a folder you choose and upload the files to your server through your ftp client, the wp-mobile.php file goes into your plugins folder and the carrington-mobile-1.0.2 folder you upload to your themes folder. Then you can activate the plugin.
That’s it, your WordPress site is now mobile ready. I hope you enjoyed this article.
