Version 0.2 has just been released of the Mobile Smart plugin, which is a plugin to help mobile site development in WordPress.

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
  • New: Manual Switcher – to allow your user to manually switch between desktop and mobile versions. Available in 3 versions: widget, option to automatically insert into footer, or template tag.
  • 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.
