Zen Cart Responsive Fallback

Zen Cart Responsive Fallback

Many Zen Cart storeowners love their current desktop template, but want their cart to be responsive at the same time. My Zen Cart Responsive Fallback mod solves this problem. It keeps your template as the main template, but uses responsive_classic if the requesting device is mobile (as reported by MobileDetect).

Relevance: Zen Cart™ 1.5.6b and above

Cost: Included with your upgrade to Zen Cart 1.5.6b. Read about my upgrade process. This is not a plugin; it's custom software developed for your needs to your specifications.

Support Thread: My commercial software is not supported on the Zen Cart forum. Please email me questions instead.

Overview:

Lots of templates, especially older ones, were designed without mobile in mind. While this works well for your customers who are viewing your site on their desktop or laptop computers, it makes your site unusable on a mobile device.

The way I solve this problem is to use your template unless MobileDetect reports the requesting device is mobile, and in that case, to fall back to responsive_classic.
