Customizing the mobile theme requires downloading your current mobile theme's template files, making your changes, then uploading your changes through WebDAV. You will need to use HTML and/or CSS to make the design changes to the mobile template files. 

If you are using a responsive theme, you do not need to have a separate mobile theme.

Downloading the mobile template 1. Go to Design › Mobile.

2. Make sure Enable Mobile Theme and at least one device under Enable on these Devices are selected.

Mobile tab in the Design section with devices enabled

3. Click Download Template Files. This will download a zip file containing the mobile template files to your computer.

4. Extract the files from the zip file and make any desired changes.

Files in a zip folder with the Extract button highlighted

Uploading changes through WebDAV 1. Access your store through WebDAV. If you have not done so before, see this article for instructions.

2. Open the mobile_template folder.

The mobile_template folder is open

3. Drag and drop your modified files into their respective folders. If it is in a folder that does not exist, you can drag and drop the entire folder into mobile_template folder.

The mobile_template folder is open

4. When finished, you should see only your modified files listed in the mobile_template folder on WebDAV. Your mobile devices will be showing the changes.

Modified files are shown in the mobile_template folder in WebDAV

Hi AndreO2184,   For the mobile site you actually have to make this change from the template files (if you are comfortable working in the code) . This thread shows how to access them.
