How to Enable Weebly Mobile Version of Site
All sites on Weebly come with a built in mobile ready versions. When you enable your site’s mobile version, mobile devices and mobile browsers will be detected automatically and the content is presented in a way that is suitable to be read on mobile phones. Enabling mobile version does not effect the desktop browsers. People accessing your site from desktops will be presented the regular content, while people accessing your site from mobile phone will be presented with mobile optimized content. To enable mobile version, Click on the Settings tab, select Mobile Setting and Check the box.
If your visitors are likely to access your site from mobile phones, it is better to design your site in a way that it is suitable for both desktop and mobile browsers. For example, the TeluguMahal site is designed primarily for mobile users. It lists the show timings and theatres addresses when a new release Telugu (one of the Indian languages) movie is being screened in US and Canada. For some movies the movies are shown in 50 different theatres. Listing all show timing for entire week at all the theatres would make it very inconvenient for a mobile user to go through. It could be about 25 pages long. So, we chose to divide the listings by states and each state is presented as a clickable button making it convenient for mobile users. Check the page http://www.telugumahal.com/badrinath.html from your desktop browser and mobile browser as well for comparison. The two column lay out keeps it easy for desktop browser. Where as, for mobile users, the columns are automatically presented one below the other thus making it easy for mobile users too. If the content is not too long, we present it directly without adding buttons like in http://www.telugumahal.com/brammigadi-katha.html . But if the content is too long, we break it up state wise like in http://www.telugumahal.com/badrinath.html
It is important to know the order in which the elements are presented in order to make it usable for all of your users. Elements are presented from top to bottom. If an element has columns, the columns are presented left to right. If one column has five buttons, they are shown before presenting the elements of next column. We wanted to present the advertisement “Telugu Movies etc” in the middle of the states for mobile users. So, we placed it at the bottom of the first column. Knowing the order in which the elements are presented will help with planning your content for mobile users and desktop users.
