    Hi,

    I just wonder on how to do this best?

    I have the main site running, and now I need to have mobile users to use not the mail theme but a mobile theme..

    Is the best thing to install another instance of WP and install the mobile theme and all the stuff needed?

    If this is the best way, how do you replicate the main site and its changes over to the mobile theme site?

    What is the best thing to do here?

    Thanks for guidance and help/suggestions in this matter.

    I think the best way is to use a theme that is "responsive" and works equally well on various sized devices - many themes are coded that way these days.

    Ideally you'd create the mobile version first and then use media queries to target desktop sizes, like Twenty Twelve does.

    Ok, thanks guys.

    So basically the best why is just to use a responsive theme and not redirect cell phone traffic to a mobile theme, but keep them on the main site?
