    Hello all,
    I am Sanish Joseph. I have created a Module in Sitefinity with the help of Contacts module. Now I want to create Mobile version of the same. I got only one example for this until now. Example explains about how to configure Sitefinity so that I can create Mobile version. It is not telling how to test the site. Please help me about the testing part and setting up simulators for test the site locally. Is it required to create more lighter pages instead of the current pages in my Module?
    If there is a better example available in the net please provide the link also.
    I appreciate any help.

    Hi Sanish Joseph,

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    I would go like this - download the Microsoft Mobile Emulator - http://www.downloadsquad.com/2008/03/02/microsoft-device-emulator-lets-you-run-windows-mobile-6-on-your/ and run it. Your computer should detect a new device connected. Most probably you will be asked to install Microsoft ActiveSync, which will allow you to share your internet connection with the device. From this point, you can run the mobile browser and get http://yourdesktop_pc/website

    There are special controls, called Mobile Controls (http://www.asp.net/mobile/overview/). You can use them to create lightweight web pages intended to be viewed by mobile browsers. The only thing that's left is to detect the mobile browser and change the theme (which contain the mobile browsers), or redirect the user to another page. The detection could be achieved like showed in the following thread - http://www.sitefinity.com/support/forums/sitefinity-3-x/designing-with-sitefinity/mobile-friendly-site.aspx

    I hope this helps.

    Sanish - in order to use a BlackBerry simulator for any website, including those running on your box, you'll need to download and install the Email and MDS Services Simulator Package v4.1.4 as well (download link at the bottom of the page).

    To browse any website on a BlackBerry simulator:

    1. start the MDS simulator;
    2. start a device simulator;
    3. open the BlackBerry browser and type-in your website address - for local websites use your computer name rather than "localhost".

    I hope this helps --
