Hello,

I want to have different theme for mobiles and PCs in Drupal 6 CMS. I plan to do it like following: first _init hook is called from my custom module. This hook checks USER_AGENT and decides if it is a mobile device. Then it should pick a theme to be displayed. So a question, how to select a theme from within a module hook?

TIA

You are essentially asking for something very similar to the Sections module: http://drupal.org/project/sections

Assuming that can't do exactly what you need, it should provide all of the techniques for you to gut it's functionality and implement it.

Not sure why this wasn't helpful at all. I've done a similar thing using what I had described with good effect. If you wanted more information or some part wasn't clear, you should state that as we can't read your mind.

Please respond so we can get your problem solved.
