I find responsive themes incredibly annoying! Is it just me?
I guess you are not getting many responses then? lol j/k
What is a Responsive theme?
A responsive theme adjusts based on browser size. Here is an example of a responsive theme. Watch as it resizes when you shrink or maximize your browser window.
And if anybody is wondering what the use of it is, is that your design will fit the page of ANY computer's screen. Meaning everything should look exactly how you see it to your traffic's eyes.
Its ok,but I prefer the non responsive themes.
Make sure you vote! I'd like to get some insight on this. I'm running a web development company right now and I always try to get client NOT to do responsive themes because I dislike them that much. LOL.
So what exactly the advantages and disadvantages of a responsive web design?
Well...perhaps put forth reasons as to why â€‹you dislike them?
Responsive themes let you reach mobile users (due to more usable site) and earn more revenue. What to hate from them?
Contrarily I hate fixed themes. Try to see how they look like in a cell phone or tablet. Scroll left and right to read each line of text.
Perhaps it's the theme you're using?
I love responsive themes
i prefer responsive.. Mainly because support over phones and tablets.. And google prefers it..
I like them because you don't have to build layouts for tablets and cell phones. The design is the same regardless of the device used to view your site.
@OP can you tell us why it's annoying? You should offer responsive to your clients since they sell and cost more.
Seriously man?! Are you only here to talk about which cities you like?
It's a fucking responsive theme goddamit... join the internet already!
I was using a plugin with developer option for my product to become mobile-compatible. But a good responsive theme has eliminated our dependence on that external provider. The plugin has many issues and those were limiting our own product development related efforts, but the responsive theme has managed to bypass them all. Based on this positive experience and new possibilities, we are now developing our own responsive theme. So, IMO, there are a lots of advantages with having a responsive theme (HTML- and WP-based for us) over a plugin doing a similar job.
I always find that responsive themes can have stacking issues depending on the user res of course. But I'm somewhat of a perfectionist and I don't like sh*t moving around or getting out of place at any one point. That is why I hate responsive theme.
Hopefully you don't call yourself a professional as well
If you are unhappy over an existing responsive theme, free or paid and available on the net, can we have the name/link please. I'd like to test those issues and see if there are any easy solutions.
