Responsive Web Design and WordPress Themes

| September 14, 2012 | 4 Replies

We all know responsive web design is the way to go when designing your website, but the “back-end” of designing the websites is what can be puzzling. CSS, CSS3 and media queries are what makes websites turn responsive. For example, if a website’s homepage has a featured slider that with a width of 960 pixels on a desktop, it will automatically resize to 300 pixels if viewed on a Smartphone.

For those who might not be very familiar with CSS, CSS3 or media queries, but still want to have a responsive website, choosing a WordPress theme is the easiest route to take.

Why WordPress? Well, Google Trends revealed in January that WordPress is the most popular content management system on the market. WordPress designers who are heavily experienced with responsive web design, CSS, CSS3 and media queries are designing these themes for free or for a reasonable price and are easy to access and manage.

If you have someone who can write creatively, but doesn’t have a lot of knowledge of PHP, then finding a WordPress theme is your best bet at having a successful responsively designed website. Check out ThemeForest.net—this website has a lot of great responsive WordPress themes you can choose from.
