Advanced technical support for Mobile:


Theme Creation

Live themes are stored in /files/pluginbuddy_mobile/THEMENAME/ (multisites) OR /wp-content/uploads/pluginbuddy_mobile/THEMENAME/ . You should always edit the theme files in these directories.

Non-live original theme files (backups and originals) are stored in /wp-content/plugins/mobile/themes/THEMENAME/ You should never edit the files in this directory.

If you would like to edit an existing theme you may do so by editing the live theme files. If you do this we suggest unchecking the option in Settings for automatically upgrading theme files on automatic upgrades to prevent your changes from being lost. Style manager edits create a CSS file within /files/pluginbuddy_mobile/THEMENAME.css (multisites) or /wp-content/uploads/pluginbuddy_mobile/THEMENAME.css so that these changes will not be lost on upgrades.

To create a new theme you can just clone an existing theme to /files/pluginbuddy_mobile/THEMENAME/ (multisites) or /wp-content/uploads/pluginbuddy_mobile/NEWTHEMENAME/

Additional Head HTML (includes Apple icon definitions)

if ( defined('MOBILEBUDDY_HEAD_CONTENT') ) {

Link to Full Site

if ( defined('MOBILEBUDDY_FULL_SITE_LINK') ) {
   echo '<a href="' . add_query_arg( 'nomobile', '' ) . '">View Full Site</a>';

Remove Footer Link

You can remove or change the footer text and/or link that is shown to all mobile users by default.

  • 1 : To remove OR change that footer, edit the footer.php file in the appropriate theme folder, depending on which Mobile theme you are using. That file will be in one of the theme directories in either of the following directories:
    • wp-content/uploads/pluginbuddy_mobile
    • OR (on Multisites) wp-content/blogs.dir/X/files/pluginbuddy_mobile (change the X to the appropriate site number)
  • 2 : Find line 12 of the footer.php to what you want. It currently says
    Mobile Site By <a href="">PluginBuddy</a><br />
  • 3 : Change the above to anything you wish to be shown OR hidden from the mobile users in question who will be viewing that theme.

Plugin Conflicts

The following plugins are known to cause conflicts with OR in Mobile. You can either disable the following plugins, upgrade them to their latest versions OR let their development team know about this. Mobile works perfectly when such plugins (or some certain versions of them) are not active.
