Mobile site alongside regular (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm trying to develop a mobile site alongside my regular site. The problem is, when I install a mobile theme (lots of great ones by the way), the layout carryover from my main site is less than ideal. For example, dropdown menus from the main theme are now individual links on each page of the mobile theme.

    I'm really worried about tinkering around too much and messing up my main site. What I'd like to do is set up my mobile theme completely differently from my main theme (i.e., have its own menu, formatting, etc.). Is there a way to do that? Do I need a separate WP installation? How can I do that and route mobile traffic to the mobile site while leaving the main site open to computer users?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nevermind, I figured it out.

    I simply performed a second installation of WordPress to my domain in a directory called "mobile." I then installed the plugin Mobile Re-direct (in my main installation of WP) and under settings input the domain: http://www.mysite.com/mobile so that users of mobile devices would be directed to that directory instead. So far, no problems.
