Wanted: Drupal developer to implement a mobile theme

Posted on Jan 1st, 2012 by

mobile browsing

Update: Thanks to everyone who helped. I have now identified a developer!

One of my websites, Humanitarian News, runs on Drupal 6. I’d like to implement a mobile theme on it, to make browsing from a mobile device easier and faster.

I am looking for a Drupal developer who can implement a very simple and fast mobile theme. As an example, check out the mobile theme I used for AidNews.

The site should detect automatically when the visitor uses a mobile device, and switch to the mobile theme.

The development should not touch any of the currently used modules. The theme should be simple and fast, and if possible use caching (without conflicting with the “normal browsers’ cache”).

Interested in this short consultancy?

    Happy New Year!!

    I ‘m just stopping to read the post. And unfotunately, I’m not one of those. But I know a little about WordPress which is the plugin called Wizard used to make your blog readable on any mobile devices.

    The DRUPAL is too big and complicated modular platform. Much easy using the WP with flexible plugins for mobile devices (IMHO).

    Best regards

      Hi Sparky,

      I agree with you that it is much easier to switch WordPress to a mobile theme. In this post, I illustrated how to do it in 60 seconds flat.
      Unfortunately, for Humanitarian News, I needed to use Drupal (the site does some complex stuff with the data it aggregates, for which Drupal is better suited). And in Drupal, enabling a mobile theme seems to be a major thing. And not only that, but it seems to be a problem to have both AND a cache AND a mobile theme (which is a killer for me).
