    Hey guys, I have been doing some research today on having a wordpress site recognize when a visitor is using a mobile device and then send that visitor to a mobile theme.

    There seems to be several options but I have not yet tried one that really did what I was looking for. I was just curious if you guys had a particular theme or plugin that is working well for you?

    Hi there,

    I just saw your post.

    Apparently the wordpress plugin "mobile switcher" does this for you.

    I have not tried it yet but I will be.

    It is a free plugin, and it generates a code that you place on the main website.

    Then whenever someone visits the site from a mobile, they get directed to the mobile site.

    Hope that helps a bit

    Not able to post a link, but what I have used for WP is a piece of code from the following site:

    detectmobilebrowsers dot mobi

    Works like a charm. Have not had an issue.

    Hope this helps

    I think this is something we all need to be thinking about. Mobile computing is going to be the next big turn in the computing field.
