liquorice theme mobile viewing wrong (5 posts)

    I am using the liquorice theme for my website http://www.scottythatmovieguy.com
    when visited on a mobile it looks like it turns on its own mobile view. and delete's my sidebar and the images are blurry and too big.
    has anybody else had this problem or a way to fix it?

    I notice some issues too - possibly the same. A picture without a caption is displayed correctly, with the device resizing it to fit. A picture with a caption gets cropped - and so does the caption. Looks as if the device just displays it as 100% zoom - so it just crops from the right whatever does not fit - more in portrait orientation than in landscape. Particularly odd that even the captions are cropped under the images.

    Without captions it looks perfect, but the sidebar is missing completely.

    scotjordan, grabotin, which mobile devices are you using? It would help for troubleshooting.

    As for the sidebar, it has indeed been removed with responsive design. This way, what little real estate is available on mobile devices can be given to the actual post, which makes for a better reading experience.

    I am using an IPhone 4 as mobile device.
    I don't mind that I removed the sidebar although that is where my icons are for people to follow via facebook and twitter. And my image for each post is way too large. It would be nice if there was an option to switch between mobile and desktop viewing.

    OMG - Is this the future of themes, where mobile viewing is expected to be built in? Theme developers will be shooting themselves in the foot; no more mobile version website work!

    I'll have to try this out on one of my sites to see what happens.
