Theme switch (mobile mode) plugin for cpg1.6.x
« on: January 12, 2019, 11:03:57 pm »

This is the cpg1.6.x and PHP7 compatible version of the Theme switch (mobile mode) plugin.

This plugin will automatically detect mobile devices and will display Coppermine with a different (preferably optimized for mobile devices) theme. Additionally, if a mobile device is detected, a new button will be displayed to let the user choose to switch between the "normal" and "mobile" view.

1.) Upload and install the plugin as described in the docs
2.) Open the plugin's configuration screen (you can find it in the plugin's box at the plugin manager after you installed the plugin) and choose a proper theme.

For a start I created two mobile themes, mobile_light and mobile_dark.

byloom, not sure if you got a reply to this or not. You need to actually physically put the two themes mentioned in the main coppermine theme directory via ftp or similar method of upload. There are also questions over permissions regarding that directory and the theme is inherant to allowing the whole plugin to work. Otherwise without using one of those two themes or your own based upon those two themes the plugin wont work. At least in my experience.
Once you have copied the two themes to the theme directory you should be able to chose it from the drop down in the theme config.
