The above quote is from 2011, and now it’s 2014!!! If you website doesn’t have a mobile friendly look or version, then you are losing a lot of views.

In this tutorial, I’ll teach you how to create a mobile friendly version of your WordPress website. There are two ways to create a mobile friendly version of your WordPress – with a responsive design or with a plugin.

With A Responsive Design

The best way to create a mobile friendly WordPress website is with a responsive design. Our website is a responsive website. A responsive design works the save way on a desktop and a mobile screen.

Now, the most confusing part about responsive design is how to create it. There are two ways of doing that. First is creating a responsive design by yourself. You can learn how to create responsive design at this link.

Second is by using a responsive WordPress theme. You can get tons of free and premium WordPress themes from around the internet. ThemeForest is my favorite destination to get some premium WordPress themes.

With A Plugin

It’s WordPress! With more than 30,000 free plugins available in plugin repository waiting for you to download and use them. There are a handful of plugins in the repository which will create a perfect mobile website within our WordPress dashboard. Here are my favorite two:

MobilePress: MobilePress is my favorite plugin for this task. It’s open-source, free, and you can easily create a custom theme. MobilePress themes works the same was WordPress themes. If you’re not a technical person, then just install the plugin and that’s it.

WPTouch: WPTouch is the most popular and a semi-pro WordPress plugin. It’s a free plugin, but also has a pro version of it with more cool and useful features. WPTouch has a user-friendly admin panel, which allows you to customize many aspects of its appearance.

Jetpack: WordPress Jetpack plugin is also a great plugin for this task. It has more than a dozen cool feature, and a mobile theme is one of it.
