How to make your site mobile responsive
The Easy Way
If you have a WordPress site you can simply change the theme to one the is already mobile responsive.
How to choose a mobile responsive theme through your WordPress Dashboard:
- Dashboard —> Appearance —> Themes —> WordPress.org Themes (1-4 below)
- Click Feature Filter button (5 below)
- Under Features choose Accessibility Ready and Flexible Header (6-7 below)
- Click Apply Filters (8 below)
- Choose a theme you like!
Chose any theme by StudioPress. That’s what I do.
StudioPress themes are perfect for business, plus they’re all mobile responsive.
The Harder, More Expensive Way
Call your website developer, or the person who built your site, and ask them to make your site mobile responsive.
Depending upon how your website was built, your developer may need to create 3 new designs:
- one for mobile
- one for tablets
- one for desktops
Your web developer will also be adding code “under the hood” of your website, called a media query. It will tell your website to display your web page in different screen resolutions. The version your visitor sees will depend on whether they are using a mobile phone, tablet, or desktop.
That’s a lot of work…and a big expense.
If you’re in business get a mobile responsive WordPress website. They’re economical plus you can maintain them yourself, which will save you lots of money in the long run.
