After the last update by mobilepress, things became a little different and old mobilepress themes such as the one I shared some months ago with you no longer worked with the mobilepress plugin. Once again, I kept on getting request from other bloggers running the mobilepress plugin for the theme I used on my blog.

For some time, I never took it into consideration sharing my mobilepress theme, but when I went through most blogs using newly designed mobilepress themes by some other bloggers, I discovered a little bug in them which I decided to fix and get this lovely theme for your use.

Bug Fixed: Threaded Commenting

Commenting System: The default commenting system in Mobilepress doesn’t have a reply function (threaded comment). If you make a reply to any comment, it displays the reply as a comment and this does not display directly below the comment, but would be displayed after all other comments that came earlier.

I hated this feature because it disorganized the order in which comments are to be read and makes no sense, here on this theme, we were able to add the threaded commenting system to our RedPress Mobilepress Theme 2.0.

Other Additional Features

1. Author Bio Section: An Author bio system is readily available in this mobilepress theme. I used some WordPress PHP tags to call up the author queries from the Mysql database. The Redpress mobilepress theme would display the bio of whosoever is an author of any post.

2. Numbered Pagination: Unlike the former version of my Redpress Mobilepress Theme where I asked you to install a plugin in order to have the numbered pagination to work, here I implemented the PHP call in the function file and you do not have to worry installing a plugin for your numbered navigation. The numbered navigation is simply ready once you install this theme.

3. Comment Form: The default comment form of the mobilepress theme usually loads on another page, but I took out time to bring the comment form and comments to the post page. This would easy you from loading another page to make comments to a post or reading previously made comments.

4. Custom Logo: As usual, the mobilepress default theme has no logo, but I made provisions for that on this mobilepress theme.

5. Design: The Redpress mobilepress theme beats the default theme in terms of design and can find it’s way to match blogs of any kind.

6. Category List: I added the category list in form of a dropdown menu with no load button. All you need is simply click and select the category and get it to automatically load the page.

7. Share Buttons: Loading large share buttons for your mobile traffic has never been a nice idea in terms of bandwidth and convenience. I decided to make a 4-icon share buttons integrated at the top of the post. It would help you easily share your pages and post across Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon and Digg.

8. Feedburner Email Opt In: I added an Opt In form for feedburner in every single post, you can edit it to your feed burner address.

9. Related Post: A related post with was added by calling the 10 latest posts in same category excluding the post been viewed.

10. Ads Ready: Any mobile ad network can be added directly to the theme files.

Demo: My blog is a perfect demo of what you will get.
