Just like on a desktop computer.

Consider using the Mobile version of your site so that visitors using cell phones and other smaller devices can save some network traffic – ProPhoto optimizes the way the site loads content to save data usage, and optimizes images different, when applicable, for faster load times.

Buttons and links are easier to use, too, since their size and operation is tweaked for touch screens.

Choose specific mobile page

Use the “page to show on front” option in this area to pick which WordPress Page is seen by visitors. This gives you ultimate control over what is shown to visitors when they hit the site’s homepage on a mobile phone. Create any content or layout you want for smartphone visitors right within your WordPress Page. Learn more in this full guide:

Troubleshooting

If your mobile site is not loading properly, try these ideas:

Footer Menu isn’t correct

Since the Mobile layout is significantly different from a desktop layout, the navigation menu bar appears at the bottom of the page so your photos and posts take ‘center stage’ – this puts your content first for your visitors.

Be sure to customize your Mobile Footer Menu separately from your primary or secondary menus. You can even link to pages for mobile visitors that are unique to them by linking them in your Mobile Footer Menu, but not in your primary or other desktop menu!

AJAX Page Loading

The other option in this ProPhoto area allows you to toggle the ‘AJAX loading’ of page content on mobile devices.

Normally, this feature speeds the loading of your site for mobile users, but if you’re having trouble loading pages and nothing seems to happen when you click to visit a page/link, try turning this AJAX loading off. If it does not make a difference, be sure to turn it back on for fastest loading speeds.

Caching Plugins

Some caching plugins don’t understand that ProPhoto optimizes your site for mobile visitors, and some plugins can have trouble providing visitors with the right version of your site’s content. If you see a desktop site on mobile, or a mobile site on desktop, it may be due to a caching plugin. Try clearing your WordPress plugin’s cache to see if this helps.

For more information troubleshooting with Caching plugins, please see our Caching and CDNs guide.

If you’re still having trouble getting your mobile site to load properly, and you’ve already checked out the different Mobile settings in ProPhoto to find the problem you’re having, feel free to contact us for help.
