    add2home_joomla_extension_apple_ipad_iphone

    Custom Startup images

    Specifying a startup image is available in iOS 3.0 and later. On iOS, similar to native applications, you can specify a startup image that is displayed while your website application launches. This is especially useful when your web application is offline. By default, a screenshot of the web application the last time it was launched is used.

    Custom Messages

    It is possible to override the default message to invite user to add your site to their home screen. In order to be able to support all your visitor locales, you'll have to edit manually the file /media/plg_system_add2home/add2home.js

    Viewport

    Use the viewport meta key to improve the presentation of your web content on iOS. Typically, you use the viewport meta tag to set the width and initial scale of the viewport.
    For example, if your webpage is narrower than 980 pixels, then you should set the width of the viewport to fit your web content. If you are designing an Safari on iOS-specific web application, you should set the width to the width of the device.
    “email” describes the properties supported by the viewport meta key and their default values. When providing multiple properties for the viewport meta key, you should use a comma-delimited list of assignment statements.
    When referring to the dimensions of a device, you should use the constants described in “number” instead of hard-coding specific numeric values. For example, use device-width instead of 320 for the width, and device-height instead of 480 for the height in portrait orientation.

    From Mobile Sites with Joomla! CMS

    As the number of mobile devices continues to outpace the number of desktop computers, the creation of mobile-accessible sites is becoming more and more important. This article addresses the issue of making a Joomla based site mobile-accessible.

    For other content management systems such as Typo3, Wordpress, and Drupal, the making of mobile-friendly versions of the sites has already been discussed on mobiForge (seeMulti-client Websites with the Typo3 CMS and WURFL,Mobile-Friendly Blogging with WordPress, andCreating Mobile Sites in Drupal Using Multisites). This article is devoted to achieving a similar effect in Joomla using the 'PDA-mambot'.

    And

    Creating Mobile Websites with Joomla 1.5

    I also want to point out some very handy web applications, the first one is to measure how currently your site is performing while in mobile mode:

    http://ready.mobi/launch.jsp?locale=en_EN

    While the other are more for testing the result of your hard work:

    waltercedric.iphone http://www.testiphone.com/
    This is a web browser based simulator for quickly testing your iPhone Applications. This tool has been so far tested and working using Internet Explorer 7, FireFox 2 and Safari 3 in Windows, but you need Safari to get the real
    waltercedric.opera.mobile http://www.opera.com/mini/demo/
    A live demo of Opera Mini that functions like it would when installed on a handset (Java Applet)
    waltercedric.android.mobile To test on Android, there is a bit much more effort: you'll have to download a simulator (in fact the full sdk) and launch sdk\tools\emulator.exe

    To test the result in ANY browser with none of the above, just append to your site index.php?tp=1&template=pda like

    http://www.waltercedric.com/index.php?tp=1&template=pda

    I’ve created an optimized site for mobile, it is pretty basic but is lightning fast on any smart phone (Android, iPhone, Windows Mobile). I will invest more time on it later this week.

    It detect and redirect visitors to an optimized template (pda) which only display what is worth, aka articles content.

    Regular user can see how it look like by cheating Joomla! and switching template on the fly http://www.waltercedric.com/index.php?template=pda

    I did not follow this tutorial, found it too late,&160; but it is really complete and easy to follow. By the way, opera has a “small screen rendering” view in Opera 10, visit my site or any other and click SHIFT-F11 together.

    The plugin with its template can be downloaded free of charge at Joomla! extension directory (JED) here

    &160;

    I did test it in IE8/IE7/Opera10/Firefox/Chrome, but send me an email if you encounter any issues..
