C3: Mobilising WordPress

A session at IWMW 2012 (Institutional Web Management Workshop)

Tuesday 19th June, 2012

4:00pm to 5:30pm

WordPress is a powerful open source (FOSS) web publishing system that is increasingly being deployed in higher education for its ease of use, flexibility and extensible architecture.

The growing use of mobile devices for access to institutional systems makes consideration of the mobile experience of such systems for publishers and users increasingly important. While WordPress natively supports mobile, some simple steps can offer users a better mobile experience.

This session will consider how to optimise WordPress for mobile. It will showcase examples of how WordPress can be effectively mobilised and provide an overview of trends and techniques in using mobile themes and frameworks, plugins and responsive web design.
