Is there a particular reason that you want the mobile site separate? You could make the site responsive, and then the entire site would be accessible on any device...just a thought. But, if you choose to do the mobile, like Brenden said, the existing templates in the Kentico sites will show you most everything you need to know.

Easiest thing to do is create a new page and use an existing template. Choose Blank Master page/template and save. Then go to the Properties>Template and save that template as a new one (name it as you choose). Now you're ready to start using that page as a master page. By default if you chose the Blank Master page it won't inherit the parent and you can or should set a stylesheet to associate with it in the Properties>General tab. The key to making it a "master" template is in the template properties, there is a checkbox for Master Page. When checked it acts as a master page vs. standard.

Thanks BRenden & Joshua. Yes it is better to go for Responsive site.

Responsive is great but there is a time and a place for mobile as well. I think you need to do an evaluation prior to deciding one way or the other.

You can also use device profiles. That way you don't have separate sections (and then also you have the same URLs for all content). It's a bit more time consuming to set up, but it's pretty flexible.
