I've modified Cyclelicious a little bit to present simplified content when a mobile device is detected. The sidebars are eliminated along with some of the ads. I'll probably make a smaller header banner with my woefully meager graphics editing skills.
Right now, the full content of the last six articles is still presented for mobile devices. Would you prefer just a simple index of recent articles on the home page with links to the full article? Or is it okay as it is?
How many of you browse the web and Cyclelicious with a mobile device?
IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
I just got a Blackberry Saturday ... but I can't figure out how to do the Internet on it yet. (I'd dodge traffic go back to the little booth at the mall, except I told the man I would bring my picture id as soon as I found it, and I haven't found it yet. Oblations to patrons of lost items appreciated, as I would like to be able to rent a car over the holidays...)
I dig the new layout, but scrolling can be a pain in the ass on my phone (enV), so the bulleted index would be great for me! But I imagine most folks are on iPhones or Crackberries, so I expect that I'm in the minority.
Ark, over half of visits to Cyclelicious are via search, mostly from Google but a noticeable amount from Yahoo also. 10% are "direct" visits -- somebody types the URL or selects a bookmark. About 5% are feed subscribers clicking through. The rest are referrals from other websites.
I might modify the code a little to detect small screen sizes also to make things fit a little better.
