All Weebly themes fall into one of either 2 types of themes: 100% responsive themes or non-responsive themes with a mobile version. Do you know which type of Weebly theme your site is using?
With the introduction of Weebly 3, Carbon, Weebly did away with all of their old non-responsive themes, sort of. Weebly accounts with sites created before Carbon have access to both the old non-responsive and new 100% responsive Weebly themes. Weebly accounts created after Carbon only have access to Weebly's new 100% responsive themes.
Weebly's old non-responsive themes did come with a mobile version for some mobile compatibility, but some mobile devices such as Blackberries, and other devices such as tablets, got the short end of the stick -- site experience was subpar, at best. Today, some Weebly sites are still using an old non-responsive theme for whatever reason, with one of these reasons being confusion. Some of the owners of these sites would switch to one of Weebly's new 100% responsive themes, if only they could figure out if their current theme is 100% responsive, or an old non-responsive theme with just a mobile version.
So how do you tell if your current Weebly theme is responsive? Very simply, with your desktop browser.
Responsive Test: Here's what you're going to do
Open your Weebly site in your favorite browser on your desktop. Click the "restore down" button (middle button) in the top right corner of your browser to unhinge it from the screen, if it's not already.
Make sure your browser is at full or near-full width for this unhinged setting. Now grab the right side of your browser window and slowly move it to the left, reducing the width of the browser.
If it's responsive..
If your Weebly site is using a responsive theme, then the content within the site will adapt as you resize the browser window. The site will look good at any size and is a 100% responsive Weebly theme.
If it's non-responsive..
If your Weebly site is using an old non-responsive theme with a mobile version, then the content within the site will not adapt as you resize the browser. The site will not look good and appear cut off as you reduce the width of the browser. This is an old-non responsive Weebly theme with a mobile version.
What did the results of your test yield? Is your current Weebly theme 100% responsive or an old non-responsive theme with a mobile version? Did you think your theme was 100% responsive but the test you performed showed otherwise? Let us know what your results yielded in the comments below!
