plugin that shows a mobile-friendly version Atahualpa site
 
Hi,
I need to convert a couple of sites I have done in Atahualpa into mobile-friendly sites.

there is any plugin you can suggest me to use?

Any suggestion will be appreciated
thanks

Carme

I have used the the JetPack mobile option and there are some other plugins that MAY work to some extent but you probably won't get both sidebars if enabled. I think I was able to get the right sidebar to show with one I tried however. I don't remember which one but perhaps it was the JetPack module.

And what about WP Touch Pro?
I used it on several sites with different themes. Not tried yet with Atahualpa but seems to me it should work

I used the basic form of WP touch, maybe too aggressive in removing things.

I wonder whether anyone would be interested in collaborating on a thread to build a basic responsive css insert that people can modify to their own use.

A responsive CSS insert would be great, is this even possible?

I've tried WP Touch and it doesn't do anything on one site, and the second site I get a message that says there are too many redirects (whatever that means).

I, too, am looking for a good solution to this.

I have used Wiziapp with some success

I've used Device Switcher before. It allows you to switch between 2 different themes based upon the device. My problem with this so far is that I want to use Atahualpa twice and I haven't figured out how to have 2 totally different atahualpa themes on the same wordpress installation (they currently pull from the same database entries).

If someone knows how to separate the theme in the database, it would allow me to create a completely custom look and feel for mobile (ata, ata-mobile). I'm honestly looking to sit down with a client and go over what they REALLY expect mobile users to want instead of squeezing down the existing theme. By having 2 themes, I can cut things like sliders and rearrange sidebars and even change out how the website flows based upon how they are viewing.

Anyone know how install Atahualpa twice in the database?

You would have to make a copy of the theme and then change the id of the database row that is stored in the database.

I just took a look and it seems like 'bfa_ata4' is the only database row in wp_options specifically for bfa settings. I also noticed that functions.php references 'bfa_ata4' multiple times.

Is the functions.php the only place that this would be referenced or is it in multiple files?

so, in theory:
1. export atahualpa settings
2. change wordpress theme to something else (temporarily)
3. change wp_options options_name from bfa_ata4 to bfa_ata_whatever4
4. change atahualpa folder name to atahualpa_whatever
5. install new atahualpa theme
6. enjoy using atahualpa twice :)

does this sound about right?

juggledad Feb 18, 2014 05:39 AM

sounds about right - make sure to test it on a 'play' site

toff May 3, 2014 08:17 PM

ok, so it wasn't just one file. more like 8 files. I changed the bfa_ata4 references in all 8 files (including the style.css where I renamed the theme to atahualpa-mobile). If I had been really thinking ahead, I wouldn't have changed it to bfa_ata5, but instead used something the original developer would not use in the future (hindsight is great, eh?).

Once I changed everything over to the new atahualpa-mobile, and then changed the database entry from bfa_ata4 to bfa_ata5, I now had a working theme with a different name and a different database entry.

Next step was to simply download a new atahualpa theme like normal and activate. the new bfa_ata4 was created and all went well.

Once I tweaked the mobile version, I used the Device Switcher plugin and pointed the desktop version to atahualpa and the mobile version to atahualpa-mobile.

no, I can't upgrade the mobile version, but for now, this lets me use the same theme and truly customize it for two different screen sizes.

I'm definitely a big fan of Atahualpa, so once I got spoiled using it, it was hard to switch to a different theme. Now, I don't have to!
