Responsive Themes - Zylantex - 10-11-2016

My forum has an older age demographic of not so computer savvy usersĀ andĀ is split pretty much 50/50 between desktop users and mobile users using tablets and phones. Some users have both and use their mobile devices to browse the forum in the evenings while half-watching TV.

I would like to add a responsive theme to my forum for the benefit of tablet/phone users. Ideally I would like to have the system default set to a theme suited to desktop use but to have a second theme that becomes the default, without users having to swap themes manually each time, for mobile users.


Is this possible? Can anybody recommend a suitable theme or complimentary pair of themes?

I would recommend MyBB GoMobile plugin. It gives a mobile theme while on a mobile device and whatever theme you use use on desktop/laptop.
