Chapter 1: Can I update my RapidWeaver website from my mobile device? Perhaps from my iPhone?


The answer is no. There is no way to update a RapidWeaver website from a mobile device. The only way to update it is with a Mac computer, the RapidWeaver application the theme files and of course the .rwsw source file.

If you want to update your website or part of it from your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or other mobile device I would recommend you to use
WordPress either to build only part of your site or your entire site since There's an app for that (iPhone).

Chapter 2: Do I have to offer a mobile version of my website for mobile devices?


There are pros and cons. On one hand I personally think it's not really needed since newer mobile devices have modern browsers on them and touch technology allows you to easily navigate fully featured websites. I sometimes get angry when I want to visit a website but am redirected to the mobile version visiting it from my iPhone. On the other hand data reception is sometimes slow and I get nervous waiting two minutes for a certain website to load because of the many graphical elements it has on it. In these cases a mobile version would be great and would also same me some money on data transfer. Another topic is what content people are interested in when visiting your website from a computer and what content people are interested in when visiting your website from a mobile device.

Some general tips on building sites for mobile devices (especially for iOS devices: iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch) with RapidWeaver and how to detect mobile devices and have them being automatically redirected to your mobile site are discussed in my

Chapter 3: Professional mobile websites design


If you would like to have a website built especially for mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPad, Android Phones and Android Tablets I may recommend you to ask a good friend and mentor of mine Mr. Roddy McKay to build one for you.
