Custom Redirects, And The Mobile Template Redirect, Are Now Compatible

One of the neatest features added to Blogger, this decade, has to be the Custom Redirects.

For many years, we asked, over and over, for the ability to optionally publish a blog with a static home page. 2 years ago, Blogger gave us that ability, and more, with Custom Redirects.

But, Custom Redirects had a problem - it did not work with a mobile template, and a redirected mobile home page. Recently, however, that changed.

If you want a custom home page - and you want to use a mobile template - just add one additional Custom Redirect.

From: /
To: /p/static-home-page.html

Add a second redirect.

From: /?m=1
To: /p/static-home-page.html?m=1

Maybe, even add a second redirect, to a mobile page.

From: /?m=1
To: /p/static-home-page-mobile.html?m=1

Now, you can have your cake - and eat it.
