    That first article had a link through to a Google testing tool to see if a website is mobile friendly in Google's eyes and the result for my home page was

    Awesome! This page is mobile-friendly.

    Well done Bluepark and thank you

    Prettycool - mine wasn't on the first attempt, I'd forgotten to specify a template for mobile in Template Manager. Might be worth checking?

    My site does not appear to be compatible with the mobile templates due to our heavy customisation / added images within pages/blocks - http://www.incarconnections.co.uk/

    Has anyone else had this issue, and if so is there a resolution?

    This is an interesting article. http://www.thesempost.com/googles-ga...campaign=top10
    It seems that the most important factor might be not blocking Google from javascript and css. Not sure if BP sites do or not. Perhaps someone can add to this info? The other thing to note is that it is a page by page assessment so the site will not be considered mobile friendly if there are some pages that are not properly optimised. And also it indicates that Google is working on a mobile only search.

    So how do you get your site mobile friendly using Bluepark? I've seen references to mobile site in the bp admin but not too sure what to do.

    Its ironic that mine fails google's test largely because it doesn't render properly in android in portrait when googles own sites often don't work in the same way
