    Hi

    I believe the following my be a bug/oversight:

    A sites “Blavatar” is not used as a Home Screen icon on an iOS device when that site is viewed in Mobile version/view.

    At lease the above is true for my WordPress.com site (Theme: Twenty Ten) when using Mobile version.

    Can one please conform or deny this problem. Thank you.

    Hi

    My question is not related to any iPhone app.

    My question concerns the placement of a Home Screen icon on an iOS device when viewing a WordPress.com blog on such a device ie

    * A WordPress,com blog has a “Blavatar” set-up eg http://greenjade63026.wordpress.com/
    * View said WordPress.com blog on an iOS device in Safari (by default the blog will be shown in “Mobile Site” mode).
    * “Add to Home Screen”.
    * Said WordPress.com blog “Blavatar” is not used as the Home Screen icon (apple-touch-icon). This is the bug/oversight I am reporting.
    * Now view said WordPress.com blog in “Full Site” mode.
    * “Add to Home Screen”.
    * Said WordPress.com blog “Blavatar” is used as the Home Screen icon (apple-touch-icon).

    Please let me know if I’ve not explained the issue in a clear manner. Thank you.

    Hey green63026,

    We’ll see what we can do to incorporate the Blavatars when adding a shortcut to the blog in iOS, shouldn’t be too hard but we’ll have to investigate further.

    Hi ievolver

    Thanks! For the reply & taking the time to look into this :)

    I look forward to the time when Blavatars work correctly with Mobile WordPress.com Themes.
