I am testing the basic Genesis theme on an Andriod smartphone and Ipad and neither are responsive. Testing the Genesis demo gives the same results yet both show the responsive versions on the studiopress responsive tester.
Can someone point out what I am doing wrong?
The base Genesis Theme with no child theme uses the css for mobile responsive but does not add the meta viewport tag to avoid interference with child themes. The recommended method of using Genesis as a base is to download the sample child theme, which does include that viewport tag. This also allows you to customize it without it being overwritten on upgrade
Thanks for the info.
I understand about not editing the base theme but could not understand why it was not in itself responsive.
You’re welcome. Yep, it’s basically just that viewport metatag.
