    Hello. In the midst of some changes, I’ve somehow lost the mobile responsiveness of my site (as viewed from my iPhone). I’ve cleared my CDN cache and the WordPress cache plugin to verify.

    It might just be one line I messed up but I’m not sure how to fix it. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you.



    You haven’t lost it – you just haven’t finished it. Certain things, like the title and widget areas in your header, and the content and sidebar areas in your site-inner div, need restyling inside your narrower media queries – or, preferably, need you to define them as percentages from the top of your sheet.

    So not 500px and 300px, but 60% and 30%, or whatever, of the total width. Then, at a certain width – by which I really mean narrowness, you’ll want to remove those floats and make each thing take up the whole width (100%) of the space.

    Finally, your video needs to respond to your changing screen size, too. Here are some instructions I’ve used – and actually need to apply to some places in a few other sites (but don’t tell anyone. It’s a secret …) -http://webdesignerwall.com/tutorials/css-elastic-videos

    Hope this helps.


    Sharing the good news about the wonders of web typography and the split-step. Either one should get you moving fast. ;-)



    Thank you. I’ll look into those settings, but it was responsive out of the box (Lifestyle theme). And just since late yesterday it became unresponsive (as opposed to me building in the responsiveness myself). Even the video was responsive. Everything was fine – until it wasn’t.

    Of course, I don’t know what I did to change it or at what specific point it happened, otherwise I’d just revert.



    I took the easy way out – I just looked at the original style.css and copied the entire @media section over my own. I’ll try to avoid any more tweaking – or at least monitor it better.
