When creating a WordPress site, you may discover that items on your site are not supported in Mobile browsers. In this case, your WordPress site will need a mobile based capability. One problem with Mobile versions of WordPress sites is the caching. This article will teach you how to enable Mobile website support in your WordPress Super Cache plugin.

Note! The results will vary based on the Theme and the caching plugin you are using. In this tutorial, we are using the WP Super Cache plugin.

An external plugin is required for the WordPress to be cached. In this tutorial we will install the WordPress WPTouch Mobile plugin.

Installing the WPTouch plugin

Before you can use WP Super Cache for your mobile website pages you will need to install a mobile plugin that converts your website to a mobile version. In this tutorial we are using the WPtouch plugin version.

Hello B Gruber,

If you fully deactivate the plugin does it still show the desktop version on mobile devices? Can you provide your url so we may try to troubleshoot further.

Best Regards,
TJ Edens
