Sorry for the long title, I am at stuck on a problem right now.. not sure if I understand..
So, I have an existing website that is just basic php and html and css.
Perfect for Desktop Viewing.
I have DW 5.5 and have been playing around with the new jquery.mobile templates! They are great.
I was wondering if I can just develop just a mobile version of this "existing" website and then put code on the index.php page to check if it "Width" or Mobile ... if so -- > use jquery.mobile HTML5 design, if not, then use the basic php html version of the design.
I know about media queries -- but I don't want to redesign my existing site to HTML5 to fit??
I am probably overlooking something pretty simple,.. or am I??
You do not have to use html5 for a web site to be viewable on mobile devices, so your current pages will still work on all modern smartphones.
The solution you are asking is what I have used for a sub-section of my site - http://www.pziecina.com/design/index.php. resize the browser, (smaller than 500px) and the message with the link to the mobile friendly section will show, (media-queries are used for this) the mobile section uses jQuery-mobile.
Yes, I understand now.
I didn't realize the link would show up like that.
Thanks so much!!
