    Question mobile website using php

    hi all

    can anybody have an idea how to develop a mobile website from existing php project ? Let me explain the situation.

    I have a shopping cart website which is running in php.I just need this in the mobile and also in the web.In nutshell , this should run on both platforms.I think I will have to modify html,css for creating mobile site if its from the existing site.

    how do I adapt my website which is written in php - to accommodate in mobile browsers ?

    Should I research anything ? please share your ideas

    Thanks

    For a website to be easily accessible in mobile browser it is more about HTML/CSS layout, rather than server side scripting language used. You need to create alternative site template and redirect to it checking User-Agent header for mobile browsers.

    The mobile screen space is very limited. So you have to create an alternative layout.

    Best is to create a different version of the site linking to the same database - use very few elements and include some meta tags and CSS for mobile compatibility. There are several resources on the Net that describe these.

    Here is one:

    I think the best options are firefox base browser plug-in for user agent or you can download the devices simulator which is more better.

    you can also use the too.
