= WordPress 4.0+ =

Once you have installed and activated WPtouch, visit the admin page via the sidebar menu to customize your WPtouch installation’s appearance.

= Caching Plugin Configuration =

Please note that if you are using a caching plugin like W3 Total Cache or WP Super Cache, you will have to do additional configuration, otherwise you may occasionally see the mobile site in a desktop browser and the desktop site in a mobile browser. These changes are outlined in the user manual which is accessible in the WPtouch admin.

= User Manual =

You can download the user manual from within the WPtouch administration panel, or [download the WPtouch manual here](). It contains information on how to configure WPtouch. Please note that if you are using a caching plugin, you will need to perform additional steps for WPtouch to work as expected.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= I thought most touch smartphones show my website fine the way it is now? =

Yes, that’s true in general. However *not all websites are created equal, with some sites significantly failing to translate well in small mobile device viewports.

Many WordPress sites today also make heavy use of a variety of javascript, css and image files which significantly increase load times, in turn driving visitors on data connections crazy, often causing them to abandon your site altogether.

We created *WPtouch* to be a lightweight, fast-loading, feature-rich mobile plugin to add a theme shown to mobile visitors. The plugin includes an admin panel for customizing many aspects of your site’s presentation when showing the mobile theme.

= Well, what if my users don’t like it and want to see my regular site? =

There’s a link to switch back to the desktop theme in the footer area of *WPtouch* so your visitors can easily switch between the *WPtouch* view and your site’s regular appearance.

We even automatically put a little snippet of code into your current desktop theme which will be shown only to iPhone, iPod touch, Android or BlackBerry touch mobile device visitors, giving them control to switch between the two themes easily.

= Will it slow down my blog, or increase my server load? =

No. The entire *WPtouch* footprint is small. In fact, it should reduce load, because of its streamlined approach to serving optimized content to mobile visitors. It was designed to be as lightweight and speedy as possible, while still serving your site’s content in a richly presented way, sparing no essential features like search, login, categories, tags, comments etc.

For more information visit [WPtouch.com](http://www.wptouch.com/?utm_campaign=wptouch-front-readme&utm_medium=web&utm_source=wordpressdotorg “WPtouch.com”).

= I notice my desktop site shows for mobile visitors, or vice versa =

It sounds like you are using a caching plugin but you haven’t configured it. Please read the user manual (accessible from the WPtouch admin) and perform the cache changes are outlined in the user manual. Once done, WPtouch will work as expected.

= What’s different about version 4 vs. version 3? =

The biggest difference is the admin panel. Instead of multiple admin pages with settings split out, we’ve combined and streamlined the settings into one panel page.

Tabs on the left, settings on the right. All settings instantly save via AJAX, so you don’t have to save settings manually.

= Will I lose anything upgrading? =

WPtouch 4 is an upgrade from 3, and your theme settings will stay intact. You will notice a couple settings have been slimmed down, while we added a few new ones.

Overall you might think there’s less in WPtouch 4— but we actually removed how we showed Pro-only settings even though they weren’t available in free, along with other non-essential panes and views to streamline the product.

= What’s New? =

The best new additions for WPtouch 4 are in WPtouch Pro— we added support to live preview your changes in the WordPress Customizer, along with new theme and extension updates, features and more.

In the free version, the newest changes have more to do with under the hood improvements for speed and performance in the theme, and of course the new admin panel making setup faster and easier.

= What’s Next? =

We’ve got theme and feature updates planned into 2016 based on feedback from our users, but that’s all we’ll share!

== Other Notes ==

If you are using a caching plugin, you will need to configure it to work properly with WPtouch. If your caching plugin is not configured, or not configured properly, you will most encounter inconsistent behaviour where WPtouch shows for desktop visitors, or mobile visitors see your desktop site.

= W3 Total Cache =

1. If you have “Browser Cache” enabled, please disable ‘Set expires header’ in the Browser cache settings to prevent Desktop/Mobile switch link issues.
2. Go to the “Page Cache” settings under the Performance tab.
3. Copy the list of mobile user agents found in our list of “User agent list for configuring cache plugins“.
4. If you have added support for additional mobile devices in WPtouch’s Compatibility > Custom User Agents field, you must also include those user agents in the “Rejected User 5. Agents” area in W3 Total Cache.
5. Scroll down to the “Rejected User Agents” field and paste the list of WPtouch default user agents, adding one per line.
Save your changes.
6. Go to the “Minify” settings under the Performance tab.
Scroll down to the “Rejected User Agents” field and paste the list of WPtouch default user agents, adding one per line.
7. Save your changes.
8. Go to the “CDN” settings under the Performance tab.
9. Scroll down to the “Rejected User Agents” field and paste the list of WPtouch default user agents, adding one per line.
10. Save your changes.
11. Finally, go to the W3 Total Cache “Dashboard” and select “Empty All Caches”.

Ensure that W3 Total Cache is selected in the plugins list in the Compatibility section of the WPtouch admin panel.

= WP Super Cache =

Note: The native support for the free version of WPtouch found in WP Super Cache (under the “Plugins” tab) must be disabled to prevent conflicts in WPtouch.

1. In the Advanced tab of the WP Super Cache settings select “Mobile Device Support”* and click “Update Status”.
2. Still in the Advanced tab, scroll down to the “Rejected User Agents” area. Paste the entire list of mobile user agents found in our list of “User agent list for configuring cache plugins” into the field and click “Save UA Strings”.
