Responsive WordPress Themes

A “Responsive Design” is one that scales properly for display on both computer display and mobile devices.  Over the past year or so, there has been a significant push toward responsive themes for WordPress, but finding them can be difficult, so we’re providing a short list of responsive themes.

As previously mentioned, we think it’s a really good idea to use a theme before you buy or download it, so the information provided below includes links to each theme’s information page where you can click through to use their demo.

Note:  There are many themes, particularly StudioPress themes, which have recently been made responsive.

Theme Frameworks Supporting Responsive

!Important: Frameworks are basically heavily optioned themes that allow for full customization of the look, feel and makeup of your site.  While many will allow non-programmers/non-designers to do this, it’s not recommended that you try these unless you, or someone designing for you, are fluent in CSS at the very least.
