10 things to check for on your responsively designed website

by Steven Mautone Grace Themes


It’s great that you opted for a WordPress website and got it responsively designed as well; but you may still need to check out your website and see if it all pans out along expected lines. Here are a few things that you may want to check for, when it comes to your responsive WordPress theme.

·         Targeting vital content: You may want to find out if the important items are showing up in the right order when a user views your website on his mobile phone. The first thing that you need to do is to work out the importance of elements on your website, find out how the current design shows up, in the responsive mode. And you may need to tweak your overall design for better effectiveness as well.

·         Strategic placement: When it comes to your website, you need to remember that a responsively designed website necessitates that you ensure that the important details appear in a prominent position. Given the short attention span of most online users, it is all the more important that clear details

·         Missing ux functionality: The other important thing that you may want to consider is the missing UX functionality and whether your users experience the same. You can double check the same with your desktop and mobile phone.

·         Screen size: One of the main reasons that you or for that matter anyone would want to go in for a responsive WordPress theme is to ensure that users can view their website “as it is”, and that the screen size adjusts accordingly. That’s something that you may want to double check.

·         Menus, buttons and spacing: You may want to check over the menus, buttons and spacing on your website, as you access it on your phone.

·        Missing content: You may also want to check and see if any content has gone AWOL when viewed through a mobile phone. Just use your phone to access your website.

·         Repurposed navigation: The other thing that you may want to pay attention to is how your website appears online. You need to find out if your sidebar content is being repurposed for navigation or if it is getting pushed under the rest.

·         Back to top: One of the things that most web owners miss out on is adding a ‘back to top’ on top of their pages. Some of the web pages may be quite tall which is why it makes more sense to add this button as well to the rest of the design.

·         Accessibility: You also need to check and see if your website meets with all the accessibility guidelines. You need to make sure that your responsive best WordPress theme can meet the same, effectively.

·         Testing: You need to test out your website in real time; you need to check your website with the help of your smart phone and compare the same with how it appears with your desk top. A close comparison between both should tell you as to whether your website is responsive or not. It is vital that you run all the tests in real time and that it closely mirrors the actual conditions that your users would be experiencing. In other words, you need to check the ‘responsiveness’ of your website on your own other than depend on automated programs to do the testing.

These are some of the things that you would have to check for, once you have designed your website to be responsive, and with the tips posted above, you should be able to do just that.
