I would like to use my existing Magento Template for Desktop (as it is not optimized) and want to buy a new one for Responsive. Is it possible, to have them separated? What would be the best way?
You can do this by Magento admin. Go to
System > Configuration > General > Design -> Package and Theme sections.
Matched Expression and this:
iPhone|iPod|BlackBerry|Palm|Googlebot-Mobile|Mobile|mobile|mobi|Windows Mobile|Safari Mobile|Android|Opera Mini
This settings will be use for detecting Mobile devices.
You can create New Package and Theme for mobile devices as shown below:
create new Package at :
and Theme at :
System->Configuration->General->Design and add
exception theme for particular user agent
For Example for
iPhone and Mobile add
Matched Expression and add your theme for that useragent
click save and check with that particular user agent
