Step 3) In this section, you can remove shortcodes and URL’s that you don’t want to show on your mobile site. This is useful for websites that want to keep their mobile sites as simple as possible, i.e. Home Page, Product Pages, Contact Page only.

Shortcodes should be separated by commas. URL’s should be on their own lines and written as /products or /contact etc.

Step 4) Add any Custom User-Agents that you need. User agents are the different kinds of internet enabled mobiles that will work with WP Touch. You can test your phone beforehand and then add the user-agent to add it to the list of compatible options.

    I have listed the [Page_Title] and [Page_Secondary] shortcodes in my WP Touch plugin so as to remove them. As you can see, they are still showing up there… Any thoughts on why this would be? 🙂

      Unusual, try with lower case in the shortcode names, otherwise it might need to be a job for WPTouch Support.
