  • Good Afternoon, folks: I am in the process of re-assembling a website I have migrated from Joomla to WordPress.This is the site in question It is almost finished, but since about a week ago, it is no longer responsive on cellphones and my tablet.
    I have not made any significant changes to the site since it was responsive, except for disabling some little used plugins, and reassembling a few more posts. The responsiveness feature in the Parabola theme has always worked fine, as tested in my Kindle’s Silk browser and a colleague’s Android phone. Today I tested it here in some emulated browsers. It was not responsive in any of these simulations, despite my attempts to troubleshoot, which are described below.

    I ran through Zed’s troubleshooter from Cryout creation’s website at

      I took the following steps:
      Made sure responsiveness is enabled (it is)
      Updated to the latest version of Parabola v1.3.3
      Updated all plugins
      Disabled all plugins (no change)
      Reenabled plugins
      Switched to 2014 theme with plugins removed (still unresponsive)
      Switched back to Parabola.

    I don’t think I have any caching plugins to deal with.
    I also tried a debugging plugin which errors indicated that I need to update php from 5.2-5.3, and that one of my plugins has an undefined variable for the install date. But these errors were likely present when responsiveness was working.
    None of this made any difference, except that disabling the plugins and switching themes broke the website. The majority of my theme customizations are focused on replacing the topmenus with side menus, and adding some sliders for photos in order to replicate the look of the original Joomla website
    So, having exhausted those steps, what might be the next steps for troubleshooting? I would appreciate any guidance people could offer.
    Thank you.
