GeneaBloggers Goes Mobile

GeneaBloggers Mobile

That’s right – you can now access a version of GeneaBloggers on your favorite mobile device!

And since I’m not one for keeping secrets or holding knowledge close, here is how I did it: I used a new FREE service called onbile.

With onbile, all I had to do was create an account, select a template, configure content and then take a snippet of HTML code and paste it after the <head> tag in my blog template.  The process took all of five minutes.

And while the mobile version is not perfect, it is enough for me right now until I can design a more robust mobile version of GeneaBloggers. If you’ve wanted a mobile version of your blog or website, consider checking out onbile.

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy.

His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.

  1. Ok, I’ve been looking at various services to “mobilize” my graphics-heavy blog, so I gave Onbile a try. Several of the templates did not work for some reason, particularly one that I liked very much (think it was PinkBlog). When I tested it on my iPhone, none of the content links worked. Had to switch to a template I didn’t like as well, but that worked properly.

    BTW, on your Geneabloggers mobile site, none of your current content displays. Am I missing something?

    Onbile is definitely a nice FREE service (and I’m all for anything FREE), but I think they still have a few bugs to work out. Thanks for sharing!
