What’s the easiest method to convert a static site to a mobile site so it’s automatically displayed correctly in cell phone browsers?
Design it properly in the first place! A well-designed site will adapt to mobile browsers.
A good place to start would be Stomme Poes’ contributions in these threads: http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4725887 and http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=711727
It depends what the site is like to start with whether simply reformatting it for a small screen will work, or whether an entire mobile version (or at least mobile home page) is a better plan.
Thanks for the tips.
Have you had success with http://code.google.com/p/phpmobilizer/
I have several clients who want their sites made mobile friendly but don’t want to create a new site apart from their current one.
