Following the instructions, I placed the mobile-neo.zip on my hosting site under themes and it shows under themes in my Appearance/Themes tab. I did not activate it as per instructions.
The contents of the helper.zip had two files: a helper.php and an update.php. I read somewhere that the upload to hosting site's plugin folder was not the same a the mobile-neo.zip instructions. ie- don't upload the helper.zip file and then unzip it. So I uploaded the 2 files to the plug in directory. All of the other plugins have their own folders in the plug in directory except helper and update. The helper plugin is active and the the requested "Any Mobile Theme Switcher" was installed and is active.
The first question is: is this ok?
Next, How do I know if neo is working? I don't own a smart phone/iPhone. Is there a recommended emulator that you have experience with?
Next, "Any Mobile Theme Switcher" installed V1.4 and is requesting an update to 1.6. Is there anything I need to be aware of in keeping "Any Mobile Theme Switcher", helper.php, and mobile-neo up-to-date?
Do I go into the mobile-neo theme and play with the settings?
Finally, on several of my sites I have WPtouch Mobile Plugin installed. Do I want to deactivate it (because neo does the job?
Thanks for your help and your great theme.
