I want to have a different version of my WordPress powered site served to users on a mobile device, and am wondering what would be the best way to go about doing this.

The site would preferably have the domain m.mainsite.com and would pull information from the same WordPress database.

Thanks in advance! -Matt

You can do this by copying your Wordpress installation to a new application. You would then make it available at m.mmainsite.com with a new theme optimized theme for small displays, however you would need add new content in both sites.

What most people are doing is using a Mobile ready theme in Wordpress. That way the same wordpress application displays on a mobile device, tablet, desk top, or large monitor. Many themes will scale down the display for small displays by removing the sidebars. The benefit is that your visitors use the same domain name and see the same content.

Hope this helps!
