Thanks for your suggestions! I’ve configured my blog but it seems the images loading is still low. Better stick with a PC.
@Dawn – Sorry I didn’t explain how WPtouch works. You can keep your current theme because WPtouch is a mobile theme that only shows up to visitors viewing your blog on a mobile device. :)
Install a new theme? Is there any other options ? I like my current them and don’t want to change it.
@Dawn – What do you mean by “blog has some errors when reading by Blackberry”? Does your blog not display properly when you try to view it on your BlackBerry? If that’s the case then it’s not about WordPress but the theme that you’re using on your blog. Try installing a mobile WordPress theme like WPtouch.
wow, I really don’t know they have a WP version for Blackberry. This is really a good news as my blog has some errors when reading by Blackberry.I’ll try this ASAP, thanks very much!
@Aaron – Really? Hehe..now you know. You’re welcome! :D
