Updated 22/12/2009: plugin is now hosted on WordPress.org plugin repository.

I’ve just launched the first of a suite of plugins to aid mobile site development in WordPress, called Mobile Smart.

Download through the WordPress.org plugin repository: http://www.wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mobile-smart/ (note: link will open in new window/tab).

Mobile Smart currently contains the following functionality:

  • Switch your theme to a mobile-ready theme if a mobile device is detected
  • Template functions to help determine which tier of mobile device (touch/smartphone/other) is viewing your site, to allow conditional content inclusion.
  • Adds device and tier specific CSS selectors to the body_class, to allow conditional CSS (e.g. so in the same way you have “.single” that you can target “.iphone” or “.mobile-tier-touch”.)

Any feedback gladly welcomed.
