I previously posted about responsive web design here.
Found a great example of why you should choose responsive web design over mobile theme. I’m working for a client converting their site to a responsive theme. I looked at the test page I created in WordPress on my droid. Here’s the page with the mobile theme:
You are blue and ugly! I say to the screen. The mobile theme is paying no attention to the fact that I told WordPress to use a different template. I’m just getting the back end test page. Not even one link to the blog.
When I turn off the mobile switcher theme, here’s part of the page with responsive web design:
Looks a lot better, doesn’t it? Mobile themes also have problems with search engines reporting duplicate content. Responsive web design doesn’t have this problem.
For those of you that want to dive into responsive web design yourselves, a wonderful framework for a responsive website is lessframework.css. For the rest of you, you may want to use a professional to achieve this effect. Feel free to ask questions! I love hearing from you.
