so I have two websites example.com and example.com/mobile , when a user visits my site on a mobile device or tablets etc I would like for them to be redirected to the mobile.example.com.

I have tried editing my .htacess file but it doesn't seem to have any effect, I have also tried adding a JavaScript in the HTML head misc scripts but to no avail.

anybody have any ideas on how i can achieve this?


Magento has this built-in already:

Apologizes for missing the redirecting portion of your question, most likely you'll want to take a look at something like a lightweight php class to use in your index.php to determine such. If you can avoid the headaches of regular expressions with .htaccess, its always best.

Mobile_Detect is a lightweight PHP class for detecting mobile devices (including tablets). It uses the User-Agent string combined with specific HTTP headers to detect the mobile environment. http://mobiledetect.net

    This is to pull a theme when viewed by a certain device, Not what I wanted, I wanted the site to redirect to a different store. – SoulEater Oct 25 '14 at 12:32

So after messing around for a few hours, I edited the header.phtml of my theme.
