I have created a website with Orchard CMS, really like it. I cant seem to be able to build a mobile site to go with my site. So that users can have a good design when accessing site through mobile/tablet.

So I installed JQuery mobile as a module and it just appeared as a theme. So it seemed you could only have say Contoso standard theme or enable/use current JQuery Mobile theme but then Contoso standard theme wouldn't work. In short I found you could only have one or the other.

So I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how I can build a mobile website to un alongside my standard website. Is there a decent module for this.

Initially I downloaded and installed Orchard through web installer. The only way I think I can do this is by getting the actual source code, then setting it up manually and then directly accessing the code behind for the global.asax file and creating context conditions aswell as possibly using 51 degrees.mobi.

Any sound advice would be greatly received.

Thank you.

I resolved this issue using the vandelay theme picker.
