Without a doubt, a responsive website is essential if you want to ensure all visitors to your website enjoy a great user experience. However, if you don’t have much experience with responsive website designs, you may not know how to make your WordPress theme responsive. Fortunately, here are a few tips that will help you do just that.

Make the Header Fluid

One way you can make your WordPress theme responsive is by making the header fluid. That way, the header of the theme will look at least decent on any device, no matter the screen size. A variable-width header will render well on both a 15-inch laptop and a smartphone. Make the header fluid by defining the width according to percentage rather than a fixed width.
If you’re having difficulty making the header fluid, you should ensure the header is not located in a container with a fixed width.

Wrapping Menu Bar

Chances are, your menu bar renders well on laptops and desktops, but not on smartphones or tablets. This is because of the smaller screen of the latter devices. You can fix this issue by making the menu bar wrap or double-back on itself. While your menu bar won’t look as fancy on devices with smaller screens, it will still be usable. Best of all, this fix won’t require too much work on your part.
