"To preserve the reputation of the Fraternity unsullied must be your constant care."

“The Masonic system represents a stupendous and beautiful fabric, founded on universal purity, to rule and direct our passions, to have faith and love in God, and charity toward man.”
— William Howard Taft

Freemasons For Dummies Goes Mobile

After a couple of suggestions from readers, I'm configuring a mobile device version of the blog. Bear with me as I tinker with it throughout the day. Feel free to post a comment and let me know what isn't working, not that I'll know how to fix it.

The link is: http://freemasonsfordummies.mofuse.mobi/
The special iPhone version is at http://freemasonsfordummies.mofuse.mobi/iphone

I'm using the free Mofuse service, so it will have the occasional ad, and there doesn't appear to be a way to post comments from it without going to the full html version of the page.

If your smartphone can read a QR code, point it here.


  1. IIRC, Wordpress will automagically reformat a blog for mobile viewing. You might want to look into that.

  2. Feh. Then I'd have to switch the whole site over to Wordpress. That just sounds hard.

  3. Actually, it's really, really easy. WP will import the posts and comments. And surely you can talk some awed new MM into redoing the blog widgets for you.

  4. Not to perpetuate a cultural stereotype or anything, but I've never done it that way before...

  5. I converted my site from blogger to my own hosted Wordpress site a few weeks ago. Other than setting up a domain with hosting at GoDaddy, it was relatively painless process. (http://www.dalestubblefield.com)

    Coming from an I.T. nerd, Wordpress is 100 times more efficient and easier to use than blogger. I also converted my lodge's website from my own homegrown code to Wordpress around the same time. I'm using it for a content management system instead of a blogging tool there. (http://www.observancelodge.com)


PLEASE sign or otherwise identify yourself in your comment posts. I have been FLOODED for months with spam comments, and I've been forced to laboriously screen every post now. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned, and may be deleted if I don't recognize you or if I'm in a grumpy mood.
