How to set a mobile template on your Blogger blog

If you have a Blogger blog, you can display a different template on your mobile phone if you wish.

To do this, simply go to your Blogger dashboard and select the blog you wish to change. Then click on the "Template" choice on the left side.

There, you will see two template frames. The one on the left is the template that is live on your blog. The one on the right is what will display on your mobile phone browser. If you want to change it:
  • click on the wheel below the mobile display (which brings up a little pop up)
  • click the choice: "Yes. Show mobile template on mobile devices" at top left,
  • then on left under "Choose mobile template", pull down the menu to view choices (note that Default is a valid choice)
  • select a template
  • press the "Preview" button to see your mobile template
  • and lastly, press the Save button on bottom right.
If you have a relatively new mobile phone with browser capabilities and the internet, you will then see your new template appear on your phone.

I did this a while ago but nothing happened with my 6 year old phone. But, I replaced that with a new Blackberry about a month ago and was thrilled with the difference.

I use the "Default" template and it loads extremely quickly on the phone. It isn't fancy, but looks real good.

So, if you haven't looked at your mobile template lately, you may want to make this slight improvement to your blog.


  1. It doesn't work on my nokia phone, but it works on my iPod :)

  2. I was looking to create a mobile friendly site. I came across this Mobile Website Builder from DudaMobile. First I thought was it really hard to build a mobile friendly site but when I downloaded and installed the plugin and when I clicked on ' Create your mobile site now' button. It took me to the Dudamobile website where I could customize my website. And it's a very easy WYSIWYG editor and here it is.. my mobile site is ready!! Unbelievable...! I would strongly recommend this to you.. go find it for yourself.
