How to make my theme responsive

  • Hi,

    I need to make my wordpress theme responsive but have no idea how to do this, I tried it with some online guides but probably my basic css is not ok… Does anyone know how to do it? I have added the one example in the media queries, temporary page can be found here: http://www.pinkmoose.fi/testdemo and here is my css:

    [Huge chunk of CSS moderated. Please just post a link to your site.]

  • This is not going to be an easy answer. There is a lot that needs to be done to make it responsive.

    If you dont understand CSS that well maybe you should look into a plugin that will display a mobile site for you.

    Thanks for the reply Aaron

    I tried that with WordPress Mobile Pack and BAAP mobile pack but that seems even more complicated as there is some issue. Can’t install it, I get this error:

    So I temporarily changed the rights to 777 but no result, I did find the solution but that’s too difficult for me – no php skills: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-mobile-pack-access-rights-problem?replies=5

    So now I thought to add 3 different css files, as that’s something that I can do…

    Pity there’s such a rush with this… 🙁
    Would be happy to hire someone for some salary.

    Hi Maaike – Unfortunately, as Aaron said, it’s not a simple thing to make an existing theme responsive, and you are right that plugins won’t work well with every site/theme. You could possibly try switching themes to one that is responsive, but that would likely be quite a lot of work as well.

    Hiring someone to do the work is probably your best option — but per the forum rules, we close threads that offer to pay – sorry – it’s just that they attract too much spam. But you can post a job listing here:

    If you have other questions about your site itself, you can open another thread – and reference this one if it’s relevant.
