WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a wordpress site and want to create a different theme for mobile. I'd like to create a subdomain such as m.domain.com which will use a mobile optimized theme much different than the desktop version theme. I understand multisite will handle the subdomain problem but I want all the content, custom posts, plugins, etc to be in a single site in the admin.

Is there anything out there that will allow me to create a mobile subdomain and have a separate theme applied to that subdomained site while keeping the content, posts, plugins in a single site in the admin?

I would also recommend WPTouch which now has great iPhone, iPad and Android support. There is a basic free version but I would recommend the paid version which is only $39 and has a lot more features. You can then customize the look and feel.
