Hi, All.

I designed and built a site for a client - www.masselsmarine.com - and they've asked me to create a mobile version. I've never done a site for smartphones before. Can anyone point me in the right direction for info on how to do this?

Thanks!

Hi guys

InHouse is on the right track here.

The process of working with mobile templates and CMS Builder is pretty much the same proccess. First, you design the templates. Then you integrate CMS Builder into them.

The difference is going to be that designing mobile templates is going to be different than designing conventional templates. InHouse has some great tips for you there.

Once you get the templates going. integration CMS Builder is the exact same process so you should be all good there.

Keep us up to date with how you are making out :).

I came across a post on BuildInternet about two weeks ago. Read through it, downloaded the files and had my first mobile site running in about 1.5 hours... a complete site with a search engine, news, faqs, categories, etc... powered by CMS Builder.

The CMS Builder process is really no different than building a typical website.

Here are links to check out:

Mobile redirect scripts for your regular website:

Give your full website and mobile site a snazzy mobile phone icon for bookmarking. I had mine built in no time at all.
