    Hi Guys,

    I've been using the BAAP mobile plugin for my present WP theme. It works ok, but since the mobile theme is rendered based on browser, other plugins I use for the desktop version (WP super pop up, etc) are also being rendered on the mobile theme.

    After looking around i've come to the following conclusion.

    Create a subdomain called m.mysite.com and make it a clone of mysite.com
    Use a mobile/lightweight theme on m.mysite.com and perhaps set a script based on browser detection. i.e: If user-agent = the usual browsers, then redirect to mysite.com and so on.

    Problems with this however is:

    1. How to set up the clone so that publishing an article once from mysite.com will auto update the m.mysite.com
    2. What to do with SEO.. since I want my mobile site to be included, yet not to be penalized for duplicate content.

    Any suggestions?
