Could anybody have missed this?
Even if there have been articles after articles about this, and nobody that are little interested in IT or people that work with web developing can have missed it.
Today I was asked if I could sort out a WordPress site for a client…
The client had bought a new theme (was released in September 2015) and it did not show up well on mobiles, but as he said, he didn’t want to redo the site, and want me to have a look if this could be easily sorted.
I was skeptic, for two reason… First a new WordPress theme, and it was not Mobil Friendly. Second, this would not be a easy fix if the theme was not prepared for this.
I got access, and was first reading about the theme, and it was very clearly stated that it was mobile friendly, but I did agree with the client, it did not look well on mobiles.
So I went in to the theme setting, and I was very surprised that there was one option that needed to be check.
“Do you want your site to be Mobil Friendly”
I can see any reason why nobody wouldn’t want to have their website prepared for mobile units. I can appreciate that you have the option, but not that it’s not default settings
Test how mobile-friendly your site is.
