Outsyder Gaming Gets a Blogger Mobile Template (And You Can Too!)

It isn't really all that special of an announcement because anyone using blogger can do the same thing with just a quick change in settings, but there is now a mobile template for www.outsydergaming.com! You can check it out by clicking here. Unfortunately, I just tried to see it on my Blackberry and it didn't redirect automatically... but the fast-loading template for mobile phone use is at least there even if Google hasn't worked out all the kinks yet. Even if it takes quite a while for it to work correctly, I won't be losing much from the deal. I just checked my Google Analytics history, and about .001% of my traffic comes through mobile devices... but hey, at least those couple of people won't have to wait as long for my content to load!

For those interested, here's a quick tutorial on getting the cool new mobile template:

  1. Go to draft.blogger.com (because it isn't an option on the regular blogger.com page yet)
  2. Click on the "Settings" tab
  3. Click on "Email & Mobile"
  4. Make sure that the bubble beside "Yes, On mobile devices, show the mobile version of my template" is blue.
  5. Click on "Save Settings" at the bottom of the page.
Then, go grab your mobile phone and see if the mobile template pulls up automatically. It didn't for me. This might be a bug that Google needs to squash. While you're at it, see if my site will pull up on your mobile device. Maybe it's just my Blackberry that's screwing up!
