During the discussion we went over a few topics that brought up some good information and links. From how to make your WordPress work well with Smart Phones and Tablets, to what event/calendar plugins worked well for specific instances.
WordPress for Mobile
Depending on your needs, there are some plugin options, and of course ways to build or find a theme that has a mobile-friendly layout.
- WPtouch – a Plugin (free or pro) that creates a very simple Mobile theme for your site
- Find a Responsive Theme – responsive web design in short, is when a website will change its layout for different screen sizes.
Managing Multiple WordPress Installs
Many people run 2 or more WordPress installations on their server, or just want to keep track of all of their own on other servers and make sure they’re up to date.
- WP Status Dashboard – seems to have hit end of life at least for now, but suggested by a few of us as a great plugin for a one time fee
- ManageWP – a feature-rich plugin that works well, but has a monthly price, and can get expensive.
