OpenCart Version 2.2.0.0

Can we add a button on top or bottom allow customer to switch between Full site (for computer) and Mobile site (for smartphone)?

Thank you!

by use of something like this, I assume, I've seen it yesterday on someone's Site, titled:
The fastest way from a desktop-only to a smartphone-ready OpenCart store
http://www.omframework.com/

But it's not for OC-2 (yet), as I just found out! And they possibly don't even create one,
since this is already an automatic built-in feature of any responsive OC-2 !

But if one really need's it, better create something like this easy iFrame Solution, to
display different Screen Resolutions:

yes, when we open opencart store, it's mobile compatible, but honestly not that friendly. So I would like the website to be opened with full site, instead of mobile site, by smart phone.

if Customer want to use mobile site, there will be one button allow them to do that.

that's what I plan to do. I hope someone have the same thought as mine and has already done that. Thanks.

The way I see it you would have to have to have 2 different themes in order to have a mobile and desktop version of your site. That's what the omf framework stuff that ip cam linked to does but at this time they have no plans to make it available for 2.0 as it is already responsive. I use it on a 1.5 site and it works ok and does let end user switch it off if they desire but having to maintain 2 templates is not pleasant.
I would think just having a responsive theme as 2.2 does would be best for most but at the same time I get that it would be nice for the end user to have a choice. At the very least some way to disable a mobile view on a tablet, again like omf does.
There is a thread at http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=182&t=137667 discussing how to make the theme unresponsive but then you are going to have a problem with search engines noticing you are not mobile friendly which is only going to hurt your rankings with them and not going to be good for business.
