A short theme-jargon glossary
Theme – basically, a theme is a way to dress up your website. On the other hand, it is more that just “clothes”. Dressing up a site means that only design is changed, but a theme provides much more control over the look and presentation of the information on your website. A WordPress theme is made […]
Nowadays, the Internet is no longer associated solely with PCs. Instead, a growing number of people use smartphones and tablets, which are super convenient to carry around, and which grant you access to the web virtually anywhere you go. The problem is, a large number of websites are still not meant to be displayed on the smaller tablet or smartphone screen, so the content of these sites is really hard to read. We bet you don’t want to lose your readers because of that, so the best way to fix this issue is to make your theme responsive.
Put simply, you need to make your site adjust itself to fit into any screen size. The crucial component of making your theme mobile friendly is creating an appropriate layout. We suggest you make a sketch of your theme in three screen sizes – one for a desktop computer, one for a tablet, and, finally, one for a phone or any other handheld device. This way, you can organize the theme structure to look uncontrived, while being completely comfortable to work with.
Most importantly, you have to make the sidebar move to the bottom to be shown under the content yet above the footer when your theme is displayed on smaller screens, and float to the left for large screens. To make such changes, you should access the style.css file and change the code accordingly, adding the media queries to the bottom of the file. Also, you can improve readability by changing font styles, or adjust colors and backgrounds to match new page organization.
It is always best that you have an elaborate plan before you actually start making changes. We recommend you to keep track on the mobile devices that are now being used, so your changes are of current interest. Remember, the more flexible and responsive you make your theme, the better it will work and look across different devices.
