I have a site setup with content, themes, plugins, and modified code.

However, I want a mobile version.

I googled this and it looked like there use to be plugins that helped with this, but it seems most have been dis-continued.

Is there a strategy for making a site mobile?

Do you want the mobile version to be available on separate domain ? like m.foobar.com – amit Sep 29 '12 at 20:11

You have 3 choices

  1. choose a Responsive Theme for your site (Responsive adapts for different screen sizes)
  2. choose a plugin (such as WPTouchPro - which is both plugin and theme)
  3. build a second site which you access at m.example.com, this duplicates all the content and has its own theme

... there is a 4th option ... being polite... there are dozens of great books and websites about WordPress & Mobile Web Development like this one from Wrox

if you are bored and want to list the pros and cons of each?...I would think responsive's adaptable theme would be the easiest. – user14432 Oct 3 '12 at 0:25
that would be totally subjective :) responsive is great but the downside is you have no control over the theme and how it responds. With Plugin its a mix of both :) – Damien Oct 3 '12 at 20:48
4th option is building natively...for the iPhone this would be a Objective C Application. – user14432 Oct 4 '12 at 20:16
