Is it possible to create separate site for tablets w/o scroll effects?

I have a website with background pictures that are placed in containers (rectangles) with scroll motion enabled and set "scale to fill".

There are two fixed breakpoints for tablets and mobile set to 480 and 960px.

Naturally, scroll effects distort my pictures inside containers when viewed on tablets/phones. Therefore below 960px, all scroll effects are disabled.

But alas! — iPad mini turned horizontally loads not the site intended for tablets but the desktop site. And pictures inside containers display distorted. Not to mention any other tablet with the resolution above 960px in all directions.

The million dollar QUESTION — is it possible for MUSE to create a separate site dedicated to tablets so that tablets ALWAYS load the version without scroll effects??? — Even if their screens are larger than 960px.

the site itself, yet work in progress — Mājas lapa kādu to vēlaties | Bonoweb.lv

Is there any solution to this problem?

yes and no... Muse can make alt phone and tablet layouts and your clients may get autosent to them however no you can't say for sure they they will be sent there instead of the desktop layout because you don't KNOW what device they have. they may be using something new or odd... even then they may just block your code from asking what device they have

make an alt layout for people with this issue and place a button on your desktop design that links to it... that way people can make their own mind up

Thank you! I did not know Muse still has alternative layouts available! Quite an acceptable solution!
