how do i change the mobile redirect HTML in the <head> section of the site in Website Builder? I recently upgraded to DudaMobile Premium  so I now need to redirect to m.samplesite.com rather than mobile.dudasite.com/site/samplesite.  The code is already there i just need to change the URL to m.samplesite.com.  I don't know how the code got placed there initially and can't find a tool to change it.

Your website in Website Builder has a BUILT-IN mobile site.  You don't even need DudaMobile anymore and the built-in version is great and reliable.  Take a look at your mobile version by clicking on the little "mobile phone" icon at the top right of the screen while you are in editing mode!

Thank you Lynn for your response but I've played with the Website Builder mobile site tools and I don't like them at all.  the way it converts my desktop site to mobile is nowhere near adequate and far too much work to get it to a point that is acceptable.  I feel DudaMobile is much better.  I just need to know how to change that code in the <head> section.  Thanks!

Hello Rick,

Unfortunately, if the code specifically needs to be placed in the <head> section, this would not be possible with Website Builder. HTML can only be placed in the Body or Footer of your website. If you have any question about mobile editing in Website Builder, I would be happy to answer your questions. You are the first person I've heard of that prefers DudaMobile to the newer editors mobile capability.
Here is an article regarding the mobile editor that might help:

Hi Elyzabeth - thank you for your reply!  Google indicated that it needed to be placed in the <head> section but I placed it in the body section and it worked with Googles algorithm so everything is good.  Thanks for the link to editing our mobile site using Website Builder mobile tool... I'll check it out and see if I can configure our mobile site using that rather than DudaMobile.  If so it will save me about $100/year... but last time I tried the mobile website editor is was very fickle and things jumped around on the page and wouldn't stay where I placed them and it was very hard to configure pics, etc.  Plus it didn't convert our desktop site very well in the first place so there was a ton of editing needed to get the mobile site to look good.  I'll try it again when I have some free time.  Thanks again!
