Our review on Winksite mobile website solution
Winksite is one of the most comprehensive community based and community oriented mobile website builder. It is very interesting for those who are already on the web and want to mobilize their current blog or other sources.
Nevertheless, as there are only few features for creating content and for customizing design, Winksite is less suited for businesses who want above and over all to present their products and activities through the mobile channel.
: Free, Good for mobilizing a blog, Many modules dedicated to interactions with visitors (forum, chat, notes, …), Internal social network between Winksite users, Comprehensive community related modules, Selective page activation function.
: Limited Contents creation tools, Limited design customizability, Too many parameters to set.

Launching a survey mobile website
To create your mobile website on Winksite, you may proceed as follows:
By using the checklist located on the main control panel, select first all page categories you plan to embed within your mobile website, you can check among others Custom page category, RSS feed page category, forum page category and so on. Each selected category will appear as a menu in the navigation bar located on the homepage of your mobile website. They will be used as a primary gateway (also known as Community & Collaboration Channels) to accede all pages within the mobile website. If you want to mobilize your blog, you can also make it accessible from the menu by providing a corresponding RSS link.
Secondly, when the menu is ready, you can customize the design of your mobile website by adding a logo and specifying colors and backgrounds.
Thirdly, you need to create every page of your mobile website within their related categories. You are allowed to add as many pages as you want for each category. When a page is added, Winksite open automatically the corresponding filling form where you can manage page’s contents, the page source and the page setting.

Once created, your mobile website site is available to mobile users and is at the same time posted on your Winksite wall (embed within a mobile emulator). Whether on mobile or on the web, other Winksite account holders can join your community and become a follower.
