Previewing the mobile site¶
Go Mobile gives you a single click preview to see how your site will look on a mobile screen-
The site is fully navigable in the preview mode
- You can move from the page to another
- You can fill in forms and do HTTP posts
Background on preview technology¶
Mobile preview is implemented using HTML IFRAME and AJAX technologies. It might not give you 100% accurate preview. However, you can expect to iron out 90% of content related mobile issues with the preview functionality.
Preview and login¶
Preview pages are delivered using special preview hostname like preview.yoursite.com.
Since IFRAME loads from subdomain, your authentication mechanism must support subdomains. gomobile.mobile product modifies Plone login mechanism so that your cookie is effective for *.yoursite.com hostnames.
If you login using Zope HTTP Auth login and use preview you cannot preview unpublished pages. Instead, a login prompt is displayed in the simulator.
