Mobile Theme Switcher UserGuide


This document is a User Guide for Mobile Theme Switcher extension for Magento. It describes how work with the extension.

Mobile Theme Switcher sets different design themes depending on customers’ Operation System, browser and/or Language. Both Mobile and Computer Platforms are supported.


All our Magento extensions and templates are installed via IToris Installer. .

Download IToris Installer and un-pack to the root of your website. It will then appear in menu System –>IToris extensions –> IToris Installer.

Open it and you will see all our Magento Extensions and Templates, both installed and available. You can install, update and un-install them with one click now.

Find Pending Registration in the list of extensions and press Install button. It will ask for the license key that you will receive after the purchase. Enter the key and submit. The extension will be installed. It will be available in menu System –>IToris extensions –> Theme Switcher.


Mobile Theme Switcher is website-dependent. By ‘website’ here we understand the website in Magento terms. Under one Magento installation one license key of the extension can activate all stores/storeviews. within one website. If your configuration has several Magento websites - a separate license will be required for each.

You can switch the license from one domain to another – login to IToris website using the credentials you will receive after the purchase. Go to My Downloads area, find your key there and reset it from the current website. Then use it again to activate another website.

The license also includes free life-time updates for the extension.




Install Mobile Theme Switcher extension and open it in admin area (System –>IToris extensions –> Theme Switcher). You will see Settings area:


On the left there is ability to switch Sores and websites to which the theme should be applied.

In the main area there is ability to select:

  • Theme – all themes available in the Magento installation are pulled to the list
  • OS – both Computer and Mobile OS are available
  • Browser – the full list of both computer and mobile browsers to be selected
  • Language


Above the settings there is a list of created themes. As the list can be large there is a filter to search created settings easily.




1. To create a new theme setting administrator selects a theme.


2. Then admin selects the Operation Systems on which the theme will be reflected.

E.g. if administrator selects flowers theme and  Windows Vista, Win2003 and Linux OS – the users having these OS will see flowers theme when they open the website. The users having other OS will see other themes.

This step can be omitted, i.e. admin can leave OS list unselected. In this case users will see design independently on their OS.


3.    After that admin selects Browsers for the theme. If OS are selected – both browsers and OS will be taken into account.

The logic is the same – admin selects e.g. Mozilla FireFox and Windows Mobile browsers. Users opening the website via these browsers will see flowers theme.

This step can be omitted as well.


4.    Then admin selects Languages. Again only the customers with the selected languages (the language is taken from browsers) will see the theme.


5.    ‘Save Theme’ button should be pressed to save the theme settings.


Administrator can create as many theme settings as required.

There can be defined that e.g. all customers who use mobile browsers will see mobile theme, and customers who use computer browsers will see a regular theme. Or iPhone users will see one theme and Windows mobile users – another one.

The settings can be combined or omitted thus allowing admins to vary the reflection of the website for different groups of users.

Administrator can create different themes per store, per language(s), per OS, per browser – or combine several parameters.
