In my last post I talked about various things you could do to fix your WordPress website. One of these was to change your theme to a responsive WordPress theme so your site could be viewed on all devices including tablets and smartphones. So what is a responsive theme for WordPress?
The benefit of a responsive website is, that it automatically adapts its layout to fit almost any screen resolution and looks fantastic on mobile devices, like smartphones or tablet computers. So there is no need anymore to build a separate website for mobile.
With responsive webdesign you have only one website with a single domain, which is suitable for almost any device out there. This leads to a massive increase in usability and it is more seach-engine friendly too.
I don’t have a wordpress site!
If your site was built a while ago there is a good chance it is a standard html site. You can check this by clicking one of the menu options and having a look at the end of the address.
htm or html usually means it was built with some software like frontpage or dreamweaver.
asp is usually built on a windows platform
php is usually a data base style website.
Which ever your site is built on most good web developers can convert and upgrade your site to take advantage of responsive themes. In our training center we also go through the full range of wordpress tutorials.
