I recently came across a thread (see below) where one of the moderators talked about the fact that you can create a responsive style design for mobile with the NetSol platform. Has anyone had any success with the mobile function of the platform? I do not currently use this functionality due to the limitations.

Thanks for any help.

Keith,

I recall you mentioning you were working with a web developer in house, correct? Is this person familiar with front-end design techniques?

If so, I would ask this person to examine the site markup on a blank site design (with the default stylesheet disabled). This will enable you to use all of your own CSS, although you'll still need to work within the structure of the cart in a few areas.

Creating a Blank Site Design (for custom theme development)

1. Login to the MCP and go to Design-->Site Design
2. Create a new site design. The name you give the design when first creating it will be the name of the theme folder that is created.
3. Once the theme is made, go to Colors, Fonts, & General Style settings and check the box that reads "Disable the default stylesheet" at the bottom of the first page. Click Save.
4. Lastly, don't choose a template at all. You can skip this step and input all of your own HTML for the header/footer sections and so on.

Note: If you're using a responsive design you'll want to make sure you don't use the Mobile Design option. This should be disabled to insure customers are seeing the proper theme.

Also, you'll need to preview the design in order to see the version live on your storefront.

From here, you can now add your own code to create your own theme. Again if your developer knows front-end responsive development then that person would just need to look at the default HTML structure (i.e. the stuff you can't change) to get an idea of how to setup their code.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
