Well, first off, I wouldn't use a plugin for mobile. Mobile is the becoming the primary means of accessing websites, so Mobile should be a native part of the website. Any Theme worth it's price should be Mobile Responsive and adjust itself to whatever device is being used. That way the user gets a common experience regardless of what method they are using to access the site.

Personally, I use Genesis/Studiopress Themes for the websites I build. Most of their themes are HTML5 and Mobile Responsive. They are fast and SEO friendly. You can check them out here. (affiliate link)

I am planning to update a website to WordPress; but I'm not sure what theme to use for their business. What are a couple of good suggestions that will lend well for a hair salon business? Thanks.

And for the site going mobile I'm using the UppSite - Go Mobile™ plugin.  Good or should there be a better alternative?

Thanks

My recommendation is to use the K.I.S.S. principle - a lot of folks try to use Flash because it looks.. flashy, but here's the thing -

Their customers are more likely trying to find them on a mobile device, which is simply a recipe for disaster. Flash + Mobile = Bad Display ..ideally, get a mobile-READY website; may cost a little more depending on who builds it, but let's put it another way..

If 7 out of 10 folks are trying to find your business on a mobile device, why would you not build your website for this?

Hi Shelly,

Here's a blog post I found that details this step by step:

Let us know if you have any other questions.

How does one change the "Admin" username?

Comment by Camden Ross on February 27, 2014 at 6:04pm

Another quick tip for those who have WordFence installed would be to look in the plugin settings for a box labeled "ban invalid usernames" or something similar.

If you are the only person managing your site (as is often the case), feel free to check this box. It will make it significantly harder for hackers to break in because they will be banned after every failed log-in attempt without a correct username. (Making cracking your site via brute force methods very impractical and inefficient.)

Enjoy being a touch more secure. :)
