With the grows in number of the mobile device users, the site owners are starting to wonder, whether their resource will provide the convenience for the smartphone owners. There are many options that allow you to take a step forward in the mobilization and one of those is to create a mobile version of a web resource.

The most complicated way is to do everything on your own. You have to understand the code, design, etc. and spend a lot of time on it. Of course, you can apply to the agency and it would be significantly faster, but also rather expensive. There is a simple solution - to use a special online builder, for example, uMobilizer.

Settings

Let's start with the interactive helper, that will help to design the appearance of the resource in 5 steps. In the step 1, you need to select a logo. For this purpose, insert a link to the necessary image and click the "Download" button.









 Step 1 - Selection of the logo

Then we define the view of the main menu. There are 3 variants of its display for now: standard (closed), opened and static (fixed at the top). The latter option will be used in the example.


Step 2 - Selection of the main menu view

In step 3 we choose the theme and the design palette.

The text is formatted in the fourth step.


Step 4 - Formatting of the text
The final step is the updating of the contacts.


Step 5 - Changing of the contact information

After that, you can proceed to the more detailed editing of the blocks.

If you do not like something - you can fix it at this stage: delete, add, change. Perhaps, let’s a little change the appearance of the blocks and their location. The result will be seen at the very end after posting the site. And if you can not wait to check the result, you can just open this page on your smartphone.

Payment

After adjusting the display and the design, you must pay for the project. The unpaid projects can not be placed!

The form to pay for the project via the balance

There are 2 types of the payment:
  • One-time payment - the user pays for the tariff plan via any convenient system;
  • Payment from the balance - the money is credited to your balance (the same as putting money to the card) and thus the services are paid in the future.


The form to credit the balance

Only in the case of payment from the balance, you should first deposit money into the account using a special form.

Layout

Once the project is paid, the last step remains. To do this, select the appropriate "Layout" tab.


The final step - “Layout”

You can set the redirection for the devices (phones or phones and tablets) on which the mobile version will be displayed. It remains only to copy the script and paste it into the <head> tag on all pages of the site. After placing the code and clicking the "Publish" button, your mobile version will instantly start working.

That’s all! And here it comes the final look of our example.
