[resolved] Alternative to making a theme responsive? (7 posts)

    I have a problem with one theme. On the sidebar, it breaks off at META. META continues on the left side under the last post. I asked my WordPress friend who said my theme needed to be responsive. His friend can do it but not for free.

    I have a custom header otherwise I'd find another theme.

    Is there an alternative to making it responsive?

    UPDATE: I put up a lengthy dummy post to lengthen the left side posts. That fixed it! But if I remove that post ... I'll keep it until I build my site but I'm wondering if there is a way around this?

    This depends on your theme. Do you have a link to your site?

    I'd rather not post it in public as I'm just that way.

    I'm not familiar with responsive themes. When I had five dozen sites all were hand-coded. All themes were custom but responsive was not around five years ago.

    There is nothing we can say without seeing the code. Depending on how your site is put together determines how you make it responsive.

    Maybe this will help: http://colorlabsproject.com/tutorials/make-your-wordpress-theme-responsive/

    Thanks. If I paste the style.css code will that work?

    Your link helped me understand more clearly what the responsives were and why they are needed. I do notice that several of my sites were different when viewed on this iPhone I
    I build In Windows.

    No the css by itself will not work since we would need to see where those id's and classes were in the code.

    So I'm outta luck?! I can copy and paste anything. I guess I just have to be sure I have enough posts on each page to"fix" this.
