Hello all,
Our company is studying to use Orchard to serve the mobile version of our website. The website is an 6 years old design. In a clasic aspx and a very primitive css.

So I don't want to re-theme that. Fortunatelly, I staid two years making isolated layers, and I can reuse some logic. In my dreams, I will migrate the whole website to Orchard. So, I want to profit the situation to start with the mobile version.

But I didn't find tutorials or articles about adapting Orchard to mobile.
If it is only modifying any responsive design, then I need to migrate now all the website :S

When you say adapt Orchard to mobile, I guess you are not talking about adapting the admin theme?
In that case, isn't it a matter of simply creating a theme that works well on mobiles?

Yes you are right, Sipke. I wouldn't adapt Admin theme. Only the front-end theme.

So, do you propose to have two themes?

But, in theory, the features will be the same, except that the sizes and the organization should be different.

Could be sufficient with other mobile specific css file? Could be sufficient with a responsive Theme? I don't know...
