    Wiil Sitefinity 4.0 support building mobile websites?
    Are there plans to implement a feature in Sitefinity to serve up different templates based on the device or will templates be available for mobile site development?

    Thank You

    Hello carlag,

    We have plans for mobile support, but we will not provide this functionality for the official release. This will happen on a later stage - 4.1 or 4.2

    Kind regards,
    Ivan Dimitrov

    Not sure what you are looking for but at Automated Results, we added some code to Session Start to recognize a mobile device and redirect to the mobile subsite if one was specified.  We maintain a table of possible mobile device names that show up in the useragent to know if a session is from a mobile device or not.

                blnMobileRedirect = False
                If gstrMobileURL.Trim <> "" Then
                    Dim strMobileDeviceName As String = ""
                    If objTblMobileDevice.IsMobile(strUserAgent, strMobileDeviceName) Then
                        objBusWebsite.AuditTrail.RecordInstance("Mobile", "Redirect", "Redirecting mobile device '" & strMobileDeviceName & "' to mobile website: " & gstrMobileURL, objBusWebsite.Context.UserName)
                        blnMobileRedirect = True
                    End If
                End If


            If blnMobileRedirect Then
                objResponse.Redirect(gstrMobileURL, True)
            End If

    What would you like to see within Sitefinity to support of mobile devices?

    I'm needing to implement this solution (or some solution) for mobile devices for a client, but I'm mystified by how to use the code you've provided.  Where would I place the code you've cited?

    Additionally, will this solution allow the mobile side to mirror exactly any contextual changes made in the non-mobile side?

    Thanks for the assistance.
