Ever since i have been on wordpress, mobilepress plugin has been one of the plugin i cant do without because it gives my blog a great look on mobile, while i wasn’t thinking of any update from the author and that makes me fully customize the theme to my own taste but not too long the author update the MobilePress plugin and that bastardize everything. you know what i hate most in the new update? even if you have the backup of your previous customized mobilepress theme, it wouldn’t work because the functions have been redefined, but in other words, for you to use this updated version you need to use a theme that works in handy with the new plugin structure.
With the updated version many users have found this updated version design so disgusting and could not even revert back to the old one. but don’t worry i made a new customized design for you with great features you might not find in other theme…. Without wasting our time, this is how the new design looks like.
