    Hey there!
    Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Many thanks!

      I am a WordPress novice, so know very little, however here is what I do know.
      This site uses Salient Theme, Ben Temple who created this WordPress 4.3 site skeleton and imported the content from a Concrete 5 site, chose Salient.
      Concrete 5 uses Frames in constructing pages and imported pages brings with them these Frames; frames are not compatible with mobiles and smart phones if for example you have three column pages the three columns get squeezed to fit a small screen.
      WordPress 4.3 on the other hand shows its own three column pages one column under each other, one after each other.
      Importing from Concrete 5 brings the 3 columns and keeps them as three columns so I have a choice:
      Compromise the appearance and let them get squeezed
      Modify the columns to be consistent width and aligned left
      Re build the Page using WordPress’s to make three columns that are mobile and tablet compatible.
      1800 existing pages imported as Posts makes the decision important
      In reality I will accept the Posts as they are and gradually rebuild the Pages or Posts as three columns in the WordPress format
      This probably does not answer your question, and I would need to see your site to pass any judgement or offer any thoughts.
      You may need Ben’s advice or even his help.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!
