This post is actually so much more than just promoting FlexSqueeze2 although that will become apparent as you see just some of the things it can do,
Just last week I showed you how mobile friendly FlexSqueeze2 is. While FlexSqueeze2 is one of many themes that is mobile friendly it doesn’t solve the problem for my websites. That was brought to my attention by Mitch of I’m Just Sharing during one of our many chess games. Speaking of Mitch, you should check his Social Media Won’t Solve Your Problems post.
I’ve got two websites which I designed from the ground up. They took me bloody ages to get up and running. Needless to say both websites are not mobile friendly. I converted one the other day from the old website to the new one which is using the WordPress platform. And of course, FlexSqueeze2. That website was my first ever website, The Elusive Pot Of Gold.
While those old websites took ages to create, and never really looked truly professional, the new one took next to no time and looks pretty bloody good. Best thing was I didn’t have to use any HTML! Because it was too hard to modify the old website I rarely bothered. The new one is so easy to modify I will be able to add new content or update the old content with ease.
To show everyone, especially those not familiar with WordPress, I made a video as I updated my second website, BlogSire. You can see from the video exactly how ‘plug and play’ the FlexSqueeze theme is. I say that because there are some out there who have disputed that fact. Something that I’ve found to be absurd as I have used this theme for ages and have watched it develop into the brilliant theme that it is.
The image above shows you what Blogsire.com used to look like. The inserts shows how it looks to Google as well as the fact it was far from mobile friendly.
FlexSqueeze2 Has Many Features
It’s true that FlexSqueeze2 has many features, way too many to cover in this post. Some of the features covered in the video below include;
The ability to have a full width header. You can select from one of the many headers included in the theme or upload one of your own.
The ability to have a unique background of your choice. Usually the background scrolls up as you read the post. You will notice in the video how FlexSqueeze allows the background to remain static. This is great if your background has a company logo or something because it stays in view while they’re reading the post.
You can change not only the colour and size of the text but the actual font itself! You can even use Google Fonts.
You can have a transparent background which makes your blog look more like a website if that is the look you’re looking for.
As you’ve seen from past posts you can have a different header for pages as well as categories.
Creating A Mobile Friendly Website With FlexSqueeze2
The only problem with this option is that you can’t incorporate your html pages into your new mobile friendly website. You could link to them but why would you want to considering they’re not mobile friendly. I’m going to edit the html pages letting readers know they’re a better and more functional website whilst linking to the new websites.
