    Hey Guys,

    I need to make one of my main websites mobile friendly and I want it to have a wordpress CMS, not HTML.

    My Options:

    1: Buy a wordpress mobile theme from themeforest.
    2: Use online software, like Dudamobile
    3: Use a plugin like WPTouch

    Can you suggest to me the most professional option? The site gets a big chunk of traffic, I'm a mobile newbie, and I don't want to screw up. If I can't do it myself, I'll outsource, but with a bit of help from you guys, I'm positive it'll be no problem for me.

    Regards,

    D.A

    P.S

    What I'd be most comfortable doing is this:

    1. Installing wordpress on m.domain.com
    2. Installing a responsive theme.
    3. Installing something like Wordpress Mobile Pack or WPTouch on the main domain
    4. Redirecting mobiles from main to m.domain.com

    Is this as good as simply buy a wordpress mobile theme from themeforest?

    Well, since your website is already complete, I'd just buy the plugin. However, if you don't mind changing your theme, I'd suggest switching to a responsive theme.

    LaLore & Ricky.Montana,

    I can't thank you enough for the replies. Ricky, that was very kind of you to post the links; thanks a lot for that. You're right about JR VIP, too. I'm pretty good in the small area that I work, but I've found myself branching out and trying new things since I arrived here. About time I looked into JR VIP; although the help I received today proves regular membership rocks, too. Cheers, folks!

    Simple solution to go mobile friendly for your websites

    a) Go on Theme forest and search for any Responsive theme
    b) Install it on your website
    c) Your website will become mobile friendly as responsive means the theme can fit on all devices such as mobile, tablets, desktop

    Before buying any responsive theme, just send me the link - I may get you that theme FREE of cost or for price slashed 80%.

    Hey dude,

    Unfortunately, I've only just seen your reply and purchased a U-Design theme. Thanks a lot for the reply and the offer, though!
