    Brad I got this code from a fellow today this might work in the body and not only the header. I also joined an online CSS class called Treehouse for building responsive themes.

    #r_sidebar ul li a {
    display: block;
    color: #000000;
    text-decoration: none;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 5px 0px 5px 0px;
    }
    #r_sidebar ul li a.inline{display:inline;}
    #r_sidebar ul li a.inline img{padding:10px 10px 0 0;}

    These are for the footer widgets it shows the image to the left but on a smart phone the images screw up the image and it is impossible to read

    Thanks I am still adding content to it and I removed the footer credits which left some blank areas but the purpose of the site was two fold 1. show pretty pictures 2. search for homes. and that is it. nobody really cares about the usual fluffy articles that take up space on these sites I have built about 100 sites for realtors and found this to be true. Thanks for the info but still curios how converting wife’s site to html5 (Easy to do online) would be easier than just flipping her to one of the studiopress themes?

    Sounds like it might be easier just to change one of the HTML5 studiopress themes and then tweaking the side bars and menu? I was told that switching to HTML5 doesn’t in and of itself make a theme responsive? just for fun check out this responsive theme I tweaked with the Genesis Extender http://homesbymenefee.com and let me know what you think?

    Thanks,

    Thanks Nuts;

    I found one that I tweaked and currently working on here it is http://homesbymenefee.com I am going to use the Genesis Extender to add the agents picture to the home-top and hang over the slider…

    Which text boxes were you referring to? Usually you can change the background color or add one.

    Katie I was able to get the background all one color by going into the style sheet and renaming the pieces such as home-center.jpg and the other swatches that make up the background to one file. Here is one of the sites (I don’t like it but the customer wanted it so…) http://nelsonazrealestate.com/

    I was looking at the Responsive themes and some are HTML5 and others don’t say that they are? Do most of the plugins work with HTML5? If responsiveness is going to be an SEO issue in the sense that only responsive themes will be displayed on handhelds then it almost makes no sense to use an old theme anymore if you won’t be able to rank with Google in the future?

    Yes I might do that or go with the Hostgator mobi

    Thank you I wasn’t aware that converting to HTML5 doesn’t make the site responsive? How can I make a theme responsive? Is there a way to do it or do I have to change themes? I was going to clone a few using colbaltapps?

    J are you suggesting that I go with the Mobi through Hostgator to keep the bounce rate down on the site? If so I think it is an easy solution and $3 a month isn’t all that bad? Or are you suggesting that I go to the HTML5 and make the theme responsive?

    Thanks for the clarification (I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer),

    That sounds like good reasoning! Are you saying to go with the two different sites to cut down the bounce rate? So we should change the code to HTML5 and if I have a slider such as WP Cycle, I should find one that is responsive and that should take care of it? I know for the Realtors that I build sites for, We want access to property searches and their listings. Easy enough and already on the home page and easy to reconfigure onto a mobi site?

    For my wife’s site, her clients won’t be on a mobile phone except for maybe finding her contact info which is on the home page as well; though I would hate for Google to zing her site even though 95% of her clients will search for her services on a desktop and read her articles; if she gets kicked off of page one because her theme is not responsive, then the two sites are better?. I was going to take the video that Rob posted and convert my sites to HTML5 and then replace the sliders. I hope this will be as good as the pre-designed responsive themes? If not then I will use the responsive themes whenever possible. Or are you suggesting that I go with the hostgator type of mobi site?

    Thanks for the valuable input!

    John

    Yes I was at a seminar today and one of the guys speaking said that because of the increased mobi traffic Google is trying to ensure the pleasure of those searching and will soon begin to favor responsive sites to enhance one’s experience. I think he said that they estimate that traffic from pads and smart phones in nearing 60% and increasing and they don’t want to fall behind the curve so Google is going to be proactive and play to the market. I hope not too soon but I think it is time that I tweak the sites that are high priority to me. I see that blogger had done this months ago with their blogspot sites.
