Recent studies indicates that more and more users are using their mobile devices to browse the internet. Such devices are not only growing in importance, it is already part of our everyday lives. It is therefore, now more than ever that websites be optimized for mobile devices. Making your website mobile friendly, can give your site an edge with your competition too!
With that said, there are some plugins, free and paid, that deliver the functionality of making your WordPress site mobile friendly. However, the free ones are really not that responsive and paid options can be expensive, especially if you are just getting started. Getting started is actually the key of this post, as I will be introducing you to a free WordPress theme that is responsive, clean and has tons of added functionality that will blow you away.
Introducing WordPress Responsive Theme
Just as the name suggest, the Responsive theme, fresh out of the box, is a free WordPress theme that can suit many. Just take a look at its features and decide for yourself. Here’s a nice demo, if you are interested in seeing how it looks and feels. Simple, but very powerful.
- Responsive: Crafted with fluid proportion-based grid system of our own to adapt the design to the viewing environment
- 9 widget areas
- Theme Options to control the content, webmaster tools, logo management and social icons
The one thing I like best about this theme is that it comes with 9 Page Templates, something that is not common with free themes. These include:
- Blog (full posts)
- Blog Summaries
- Content/Sidebar Half
- Sidebar/Content Half
- Full Width Page
- Landing Page (in case that you don’t want anything else but the clean white design and your logo)
- Sitemap Template
And it does not stop there. Like menus? This one, again, exceeds the norm. It has not one, two, but four navigation menus. Need support? Yep, they got that too. Just register on their forum and you are good to go. So many free stuff, that it makes you wonder why it is free, right?
Anyway, if you are looking for a real cool and simple theme, that automagically adapts itself in accordance with the viewing environment, look no further. This is it! Try it and let me know if you like it.
