Well, So Much For That Idea…

STRKE001

I’m sure some of you read that I was using a new theme and immediately swapped over to see what the new theme looked like. Well, my brother Kip did from his cellphone and he couldn’t read anything. Evidently, whoever built the theme I had intended on using didn’t include a corresponding mobile theme, so WordPress just used the desktop one, shrunk down to fit iOS and Android phones. I thought that switching on the mobile options would fix it, and it only got worse.

So, I’ve restored the theme I had out here, at least until I can find a theme that looks as good on smartphones and tablets as it does on a 27″ monitor. For those of you who use WordPress.com, you might want to set up a test blog where you can test things like that.

    1. The themes that WordPress puts together are all mobile-ready, but more often than not the ones created by users don’t take it into consideration. I haven’t thought about spending a lot of money to buy one of the themes, and even then I’m not sure they’re mobile-ready either. Twenty Fourteen, the one I’m using now, is a good one, though I’d spread it out a little more and give the center column more space. That’s what I was after. But I guess we can’t have everything… Maybe I should find a web host and install the software, then play with the style sheet until I’m happy with it.
