** NEW LOCATION THIS MONTH **
Creating a mobile version of your WordPress site is as easy as installing and activating one of the many plugins available. Or if you want more control over the look, you can use a responsive theme. So why would the team at CBS Local go a totally different route, and choose to create a brand new mobile theme for their site? At this months Meetup we're going to find out.
First, the team at CBS Local will walk us through their process, and why they decided to go the custom theme route. They'll give us insight into the thought process behind the design... how to decide which content to highlight... and why responsive design was not a good option.
After the Q&A, we'll get into some code. How to implement a theme switcher... CSS for mobile... and much more.
