Blogger Blogs Gets Mobile Friendly

Print Page

Till now Blogger used to simply display the standard layout of a site on mobile phones, and this made reading tough for visitors. The only option left with them was to either zoom text or be happy with the extremely tiny text. To solve this problem, Blogger has finally launched new mobile templates feature for its blogging platform today.

After enabling this feature, your blog will automatically reformatted and made mobile friendly when visited via a mobile phone.

Right now this is an opt-in feature, so you need to activate this functionality. To do so, simply go to Dashboard > Settings > Email & Mobile tab, enable the mobile template option and then save settings.

Feature highlights:

Preview: Get a glimpse of what your blog will look like by clicking on the Mobile Preview button. You can also see it on your smartphone by scanning the QR-code to the right of the options.
Automatic redirection: All opted-in blogs will automatically be redirected to the mobile view when accessed from a smartphone.
Template support: We are initially supporting 6 variants of the Simple template and 6 variants of the Awesome template. If you have used one of these 12 templates through our Template Designer, your mobile view will be rendered in the same style as your desktop view (other template variants will be rendered as Simple). Some gadgets are also supported.
Mobile ads: Mobile AdSense ads will be displayed at the top of the post pages and at the bottom of the index page if the blog has an AdSense gadget or inline blog ads.
Comments and videos: You will be able to make comments and watch videos.
