I am creating a mobile version for a site. For that I am using WPTouch not WPTouch-Pro. Now I want to add a form in my page.

For desktop version I used template to add form. But in mobile version it's not working. When I exit mobile version form is present in my page. I saw some post which suggest to add child theme and its for WPTouch-Pro.

Since I am new to wordpress I don't have any idea how to solve this problem.

@brasofilo thanks for your suggestion. I have done it with shortcode. :) – RoSe May 6 '13 at 9:37
RoSe, I converted my comment into an Answer and added a suggestion on how to run with Restricted Mode enabled. – brasofilo May 6 '13 at 18:23

As WPTouch uses its own theme, we can't hardcode certain functionality inside the regular theme, neither in a page/post template nor functions.php.

So, a custom plugin is needed and the desired output made out of a Shortcode.

Also, make sure WPTouch Restricted Mode is turned off in Advanced Options > Advanced Settings. But probably this restricted mode can live together with a Must Use plugin.
