    is there a guide anywhere that could help me to remove all of the responsive elements?

    Or maybe a list of stuff that needs to go?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Um, silly question, but why would you want to remove the responsive elements from a theme whose name is "Responsive?"

    Well, I'm sure you have your reasons. Basically, you need to comment out or delete the "Responsive (Mobile) Design" section in style.css (begins on line 2833) and comment out or remove the meta viewport tag on line 30 of header.php.

    Responsive recommends using a child theme for customization for safe upgrading of the theme, but to remove the responsiveness in that way would be pretty tricky to do. I would instead make the updates directly to the theme, and make backup copies of the altered files so that you can diff them if you upgrade the theme.

    But really, why remove the responsiveness? That's kinda the point of the theme.

    I know, it does seem a bit silly. Im making the site for a friend and he doesnt want it to be responsive... now... he did previously! Im actually trying to convince him back to responsive right now :)

    Thanks for the help. I did remove those 2 elements - meta viewport tag and all related css, but that has not stopped it behaving responsive. There must be more to remove I presume.

    Anyhows, hopefully I dont need to remove anything
