I am creating a mobile theme for the magento store so that the same url(e.g. example.com) for the store when watched in the mobile devices then it will look differently.

I have added the exception feature of magento in the admin site for the mobile devices.

Now in the footer I want to keep a link called "View full site" which when clicked , should show the other theme which is used for the desktop view.
How can I do this ?

  • have you created to two store (1 desktop & 2 mobile)?

You have to build a small module and rewrite the design_package model in Magento.

See instructions in this article: http://www.classyllama.com/blog/switching-desktop-when-using-design-exceptions-custom-mobile-theme

  • I am facing problem implementing the above instuctions.I have uploaded the module in respective folder.but there is an error coming as " Class 'Mage_Cls_Designswitcher_Helper_Data' not found".. But the helper class is "CLS_DesignSwitcher_Helper_Data". Jan 12, 2016 at 12:26

When you click on this link you can set a cookie that you can use to load the mobile theme or the original one.
