[Fixed] Why default theme not showing @ WordPress.com on mobiles/tablets for Dummies #AMP #rediscover

One fine day, I wondered …

That why my WordPress site’s main theme although perfectly compatible for Mobiles and Tablet was not being rendered properly on mobiles and tablets. Now you all might have the same question as well, and the people reading this might think this is magic, but sadly it’s not. It’s Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages framework at work.

It was supposed to look like this.

“The Originals Suits Theme” version
“What on Earth is this” version

Well, that’s all fine and dandy, Vipul. But, What does WordPress say about this? Surely they must have a reason.

AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) is an open-source framework that allows browsers and apps to load the site’s blog posts quickly on mobile devices. Check out the AMP site for more details on how it works.

For all WordPress.com sites, AMP is enabled by default. The main advantage to AMP is a fast-loading mobile experience. All of your site’s blog posts (front page, archives and pages aren’t currently supported) will have dynamically generated AMP-compatible versions. Your site’s results in Google will also be marked by the AMP badge on mobile-based searches.

By the people who thought this would be a great idea at WordPress.

Well, for people not from a computer science background. That means that AMP automatically optimizes blogs and other websites to the point of crunching their structures and themes and presenting it as their simple generic subsets. Which is effectively making blogs ugly, unreadable and not getting enough views. We need them views.

Enough said, Let me out of this AMP hell…

My thought precisely, getting out is pretty easy. But it takes time for the changes to appear. Mine happened in a day or two. I am not sure how long it would take for Google to index your site again. Give or take a week. If nothing changes, contact WordPress Support or holla at me in the comments section.

Step 1: Open Settings Menu > Performance

Tap that button to turn AMP off and you are done.

Well, thank you for reading and buy me a Ko-fi or something.
Till then live in the mix guys.
