Making iBlogPro4 Mobile-friendly?

Mobile

Best Answer Danny , 10 April 2013 - 12:26 PM

Hi,

 

You can find a demo of iBlogPro 5 here - http://iblogpro5.pagelines.me/

Please be aware before making any purchase that iBlogPro 5 is not a standalone theme like iBlogPro 4, it is actually a child theme of PageLines Framework. Therefore, inorder for iBlogPro 5 to function you will need to purchase PageLines Framework.

Upgrading to iBlogPro 5 is like installing a new theme, meaning your sites layout and design will be styled to iBlogPro 5. However, all of your content i.e. pages, posts will be preserved but any custom code used on iBlogPro 4 will not be, as its a new theme.

 

If you wish to proceed to upgrade to iBlogPro 5, I recommend contacting our helpdesk, before purchasing.

I am using iBlogPro and would like it more mobile-friendly.  Is there a plugin or some way to do this?

 

Although I can view my site via mobile browser, I don't like how it looks.

Hi Martin, currently the site is on our internal network.  I am working with my IT guy to try and get it so that it can be viewed publicly.

 

Is there a mobile theme that works well with iBlogPro that can be tied in?

Hi there,

 

IBlog Pro 4 was created before the web before the web became super mobile friendly. Your best bet would be to upgrade to IBlog Pro 5 which is fully responsive. As an existing customer our helpdesk team might be able to offer you a discount to upgrade to the Framework. Please drop them a line on hello@pagelines.com

 

Otherwise you'd be looking at third party mobile themes via plugins, I'm not sure how well they would work with the current edition of Wordpress though.

Hi James,

 

Is there a site out there somewhere using iBlogPro 5 that I can view on a mobile browser to see how it would look?

 

If I upgrade to 5, is it a simple install?  I won't lose any of the work I've put into my site already will I???

 

Thanks,

Jon :-)

Hi Guys, I am still using iblo4, and something happen with the template that show part (footer) of the website in block colour when you access from a mobile phone. My site is www.cocoaosx.com

Could you please help me to fix it?

 

It seems that is something related to background image file type  but I could not identify which image file is and what is the correct file type.

 

Thanks

One of my clients is still using that theme under the original framework. For mobile, we're using WPTouch Pro, which is a wonderful plugin to make your site handheld-friendly.

 

I am using iBlogPro and would like it more mobile-friendly.  Is there a plugin or some way to do this?

Hi guys

 

Im needing the same thing as the op, but i think the $99 price tag is a bit steep, the iblog 4 wasnt anywhere near that much was it?

 

I think i ll use the wp plugins tbh

 

cheers

Hi,

 

PageLines Framework is now free, as is iBlog 5, so could you explain what $99 price you're speaking about?
