Mike' Two Minute Mobile Web Hack

| Comments

Mike Davidson, fellow Seattleite and CEO of Newsvine, has a handy tutorial on making your website mobile device-friendly in just a couple minutes. His approach, in contrast to the potentially unsupported approach of using ‘mobile device web standards,’ makes extensive use of server-side rules and code to pummel your website into a format that even the most braindead mobile web browser can render.

Step 0: Follow standard guidelines for separating presentation from content using XHTML and CSS (duh). Step 1: Create a domain mirror Step 2: Create a global prepend function Step 3: Create a global append function Step 4: Enable global use of these prepend and append functions with .htaccess.

Snazzy stuff, and how often do you find a CEO who can still hack code with the best of them? ;-)
