Just downloaded 2.0! Been looking forward to it! Question: is there or will there be mobile page equivalents for the blog like for the other pages, since many internet readers read blogs on their phones? Or is there certain steps we can do right now to add that?

Hope you are enjoying the new 2.0! You can create a desktop and mobile version of the blog (in the same way as you would for a desktop + mobile site). Create your desktop blog first. Then add a new page to your website and select ‘blog’ as the page type. Rename the new blog main page (e.g. ‘mobile blog’) then use Page Settings in the Inspector tab to define the content width etc for the mobile blog main (index), posts and archive pages. Set the mobile blog pages as mobile pages in the ‘mobile Settings’ section. You can redirect from desktop to mobile but only the blog main and archive pages, not the posts themselves. Remember that graphics on mobile devices may slow loading times so be careful using them. Also you can use the blog posts preview window to style the look of all the blog posts (the preview window works like a master page in this situation so e.g. if you add a social media button to the preview window, it gets added to every blog post)
Thanks for the great question, we’ll try to get a full blog post on this topic up soon!
Hope the above helps you out!

Do you have to copy the text from your post page to your mobile post page? I’ve followed the instructions given above, and the mobile pages are there, but I don’t see the post content copied to the mobile page …

Yes you will need to copy the text from the desktop blog post to the mobile blog post. Make sure that you copy the text from the Editor Window (the center section) in to the mobile post’s editor window. If you paste the text in to the mobile post editor window and do not see the text, try highlighting it, in case the text is the same color as the background. If that’s the case use the droplet in the menu to change the text color.

Thanks for the feedback!

Okay, so you can’t redirect the blog posts themselves? Does that mean the search engines will treat the mobile post page and the desktop post page as separate pages?

The links you usually add will be from blog to mobile blog and archive to mobile archive only so you can’t link post to post directly…. I’ll look into the SEO aspect for you!
