    «Vichingo – Coraline is a responsive theme. If you make your browser window size smaller you can see the layout change to adjust to the dimensions of the screen.

    However, Google Adsense says it’s no mobile-compatible I don’t know how AdSense determines what sites are “mobile compatible” – you’d need to find out more from them.

    I see that you’re currently running version 1.5 of Coraline, which is the current version. If you let me know specifically what problems you’re having and what version you’re referring to I’ll be glad to help».

    My response

    Thanks, Kathryn. I’m using Coraline version 1.5, and I was convinced my blog had no problem, but Google Adsense, Google Webmaster or Google wherever says it does.

    Specifically, they says: “Google systems have tested 2,380 pages from your site and found that 100% of them have critical mobile usability errors. The errors on these 2,380 pages severely affect how mobile users are able to experience your website. These pages will not be seen as mobile-friendly by Google Search, and will therefore be displayed and ranked appropriately for smartphone users”, and then they suggest I introduce changes like these ones:

    1) Delete the JavaScript which is blocking visualization, and the CSS content in upper half of the page.
    2) Specify browser cache.
    3) Optimize images
    4) Minimize HTML
    5) Minimize CSS
    6) Use fonts than can be read
    7) Apply adequate size to tactile buttons
    8) Configure graphic window

    As I understand that, it’s like rebuilding my theme, something I don’t know how to do. And maybe because I’m not a tech guy, I don’t understand either how those pages could have “critical mobile usability errors” if the theme they are in is responsive.

    So, I have no other option than leave things as they are.

    P.S. I installed the Pilcrow theme, which is responsive and resembles a lot Coraline, I run the mobile-compatible test and the results were the same. So I switched back to Coraline.
