    I’d like to first find out if possible what you mean by ‘mobile site’ do you mean your site when viewed on a mobile device (responsive) or are you creating a theme just for mobile sites? I’d only suggest the later you see if you want to do something different/additional from the responsiveness which your theme gets just by being the default theme.

    hey, thanks for the reply. What i was referring to was creating a light weight site to be viewed by a mobile device and if possible some other hand held devices. Am doing this because when i installed frisco theme, its not functioning very well on the mobile, and another issue is that, there is a problem with the theme lately. When i activate it, its not displaying the contents very well. Okay, back to the issue. I want a mobile site for my main site because the responsive themes are making the sites to load very slowly when viewed with the mobile. What am trying to say is, if i can be able to design a mobile site like the way facebook has, that would mean alot to me. I hope i have shade some light.

    THe slow is probably due to plugins and other scripting that the mobile devices have to contact services or ‘dial home’ to use.

    Facebook has an app that’s a different approach and if you want to take that you don’t want to be considering a theme at all you’d be looking at a different format.

    What you could do is look at conditional loading ie; only show things if not on a mobile. You can do this easily and simply using media queries or more advanced and potentially more issues by using detectors.
