    Hi there,
    Firstly, I’d like to say thank you for the great versatile theme.
    One of my questions is connected with visibility of sidebars. Site looks perfect on the screen of PC and smartphone but not so nice on the screen of tablet.
    If the width of screen lies from 720 to ~1000 pxs sidebars are shown but they are quite narrow. Some long words are sticking out of widgets, some widgets like calendars are cutted off as well.
    Is it possible to increase width of the screen below which the theme collapses into ‘smartphone mode’?

    Hi there,

    Thanks!
    Right, we should probably move them, but you can also make that happen with some plugins such as Widget Visibility, Widget Options, etc.
    Basically, hiding the sidebar widgets on tablets and adding similar widgets to the “Bottom” widget area that are hidden for the desktop view. Would that work for you?

    As for Widget Options, this plugin hasn’t been tested with WP 5.6 yet and last update was 3 months ago. As far as I understand, there is a possibity to hide any widget but if I want to move widget to the bottom I have to buy Pro-version.
    In fact, I don’t need such advanced widget functionality.
    I found that the site view collapses to a ‘mobile mode’ when the browser width becomes 720 pixels or lesser. Is there a possibility to increase this value somewhere in the code?
    Anyway thank you for the recomendation of widget managing plugins, I’ll try it if find that a lot of visitors use tablets.

    I think the plugin is fine, they just need to bump up the version in its readme.txt file.
    Anyway, today’s update was a minor one. I will check different sizes to ensure it doesn’t fall apart easily; I’ll update this topic with some CSS soon as there anything to share. Thanks!

    OK, thank you! This issue is not a big problem for me.

    Yesterday I checked theme layout with tablet and found that site looks perfect, without those narrow sidebars.
    Thank you again!
