8 Popular online apps to test the mobile version of your site

Image
The mobile revolution has inspired major and minor websites alike to have a mobile version. Mobile versions can be created using themes, extensions, and other modifications. While developing mobile version, you may want to test it on two, three, or even five different mobile handsets. After development, you are not aware how it will appear in each mobile present on this Earth as you have to buy each of them to test it manually.
Let us make this work simple for you by collecting some tools in this article to test the mobile version of your website.
You can test your mobile website on these tools, analyze it for the mistakes/errors, and then optimize it according to the recommendations. Let us have a look at some of the mobile testing applications available online.

Increase upload size in your php.ini (Increase Maximum file size: 8 MB)

note: increasing PHP upload size is different from increasing PHP memory limit. You can learn to increase memory limithere.
Drupal's limits on upload file size are determined by your server's PHP settings (as well as Drupal specified settings that can be set at Admin > Site Configuration > File Upload). The default values for PHP will restrict you to a maximum 2 MB upload file size.
On the settings page for the upload module, Drupal calculates and displays the maximum file size that you can set based upon two PHP settings: 'post_max_size' and 'upload_max_filesize'. Since 'post_max_size' is the limit for all the content of your post, many people choose 'post_max_size' to be a multiple of 'upload_max_filesize' to allow multiple files to be uploaded, but this is not essential. The upload module limits the size of a single attachment to be less than either post_max_size, or upload_max_filesize, whichever is smaller. The …

Views Slideshow - Module

Views Slideshow can be used to create a slideshow of any content (not just images) that can appear in a View. Powered by jQuery, it is heavily customizable: you may choose slideshow settings for each View you create.
Potential usesNews item slideshow (such as the title, image and teaser of the last 5 news articles submitted) The Last X number of X submitted (images, videos, blog entries, forum posts, comments, testimonials, etc.). Rotate any image, based on any filters you can apply in views. Hottest new products for any ecommerce drupal site. Rotate contact links, share links, etc. Heck, you could rotate entire nodes, categories, image galleries, etc. I wouldn't suggest it, but you have that power. Its also a great space saver. Places where you had multiple images or multiple items such as RSS feeds or category listings can now be presented in a slideshow. The possibilities are really endless, as the more ways you can think of to categorize and add to views, the more you c…

Menu Minipanels - Module

Megamenus (explanation) built using (mini) Panels, which provides tremendous flexibility in what can be displayed.
Click-by-click beginner's tutorial: http://drupal.org/node/984560#comment-3922442
Benefits By making additional sub-pages available from the main navigation the module provides a quicker route for visitors to find the pages they are looking for. Used carefully, megamenus can be a great enhancement to a site's UI and can contribute towards improving conversion rates on e-commerce sites, e.g. it helped double the conversion rates on the site the module was originally developed for.
Why MiniPanels? There are two main reasons why minipanels are used:
Usability: once an initial learning curve is gotten past the module becomes very easy to use.Flexibility: there is a tremendous amount of configuration available via minipanels and almost anything can be added to one - views, blocks, nodes, other menus, and even raw PHP code if the PHP Filter is enabled. Further, …

Megamenu - Module

Taxonomy Access Control Lite - Module

This node_access module governs access to nodes based on the taxonomy terms applied to the nodes. A simple scheme based on taxonomy, roles and users controls which content is visible.
As the name implies, this module shares some functionality with an
earlier module called Taxonomy Access Control (TAC). If you are
shopping around for an access control module to use, consider that one
as well. See this module's README.txt for an explanation of "why yet another access control module".
Here are some key features of tac_lite:
Designed to be as simple as possible in installation and administration.Uses Drupal's node_access table, db_rewrite_sql hook and
taxonomy module to leave the smallest possible footprint while doing
it's job. For example, it introduces no new database tables. Grant permissions based on roles. Grant permissions per user. (Give a specific user access in addition to what his/her roles allow). Supports view, update and delete permissions. B…

Drupal 6 Performance Tips

Using DB Maintenance and Boost

In this chapter, we're going to install, confi gure, and utilize the DB Maintenance and
Boost modules. DB Maintenance will allow us to maintain and optimize our MySQL
database from within the Drupal admin interface. Boost will help us to speed up
page load times on our site for our anonymous site users by using its sophisticated
and advanced page, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript caching mechanisms. We'll look at
basic introductory Boost concepts in this chapter, and later in Chapter 6 we will look
at more advanced topics using the Boost module. Consider this a two part dose of the
Boost module. Both of these contributed modules will help you diagnose problems
on your site and server as well as help to keep your site running smoothly and in
an optimized fashion. These are not required modules, but rather are recommended
modules to add to your Drupal performance arsenal. The way this chapter will work
is that we'll outline the purpose of each module, install and…
