Responsive themes combined with ads
I’m setting up WP for the first time for the (re)launch of my website. I want to use a responsive (premium) theme, but really need a 300×250 (3rd party) ad in the right side bar on every page. Adsense for example.
Almost every theme author I contacted with the question if that would work, replied with problems on that matter. As I’m not a coder or very technical, the following reaction is the most clear to me:
The code from most of the 3rd party ad services doesn’t scale and resize because it is served as separate content in an iframe container. The theme can adjust the size of the iframe, but it doesn’t control what happens inside of the frame. So, unfortunately, I don’t really have a good solution for making that type of ad work within Hybrid. Responsive web design has exploded in recent months, so I’m sure the ad services will offer some type of solution soon (they are already exploring options http://blog.buysellads.com/2012/01/adaptive-web-design-advertising/), but I don’t know of a good way to handle that scenario right now.
So if I understand correctly: there is no way to use a responsive theme combined with a 300×250 (Adsense) ad in the right side bar without ‘scaling’ when using a mobile device?
If so: will a non-responsive theme combined with WPTouch be a good alternative?
Thanks in advance!
