Remove the Responsive Width from site?

  1. I am looking at the blog on my mobile phone and the layout is completely changed. I see that it is doing this because of the theme having a responsive width.

    Is there anyway to remove this responsive width from the Oxygen theme? I would like to site to look on my phone the same way it looks on my computer screen.

    The blog I need help with is ianmadsen.wordpress.com.

  2. Assuming it is enabled, then have you tried disabling the mobile theme here > Appearance > Mobile to see what the result would produce?

    Technically the answer is yes but I suspect it may be a very challenging project. You cannot make that change to any theme without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    I'll tag this thread so it gets moved to the CSS Forum where those who help with CSS editing can chime in.

  3. Yes I have disable the mobile feature in Appearance > Mobile.

    I have purchase the custom design upgrade as well.

    Thank you

  4. This is quite a challenge, and I've tried it a couple times and always ended up with at least a couple of elements that stayed responsive.

    Basically any width that is set as a percentage has to be changed to a static width in pixels. You have to search through all the existing CSS using something like Firebug in Firefox and then figure out what the widths need to be and change them to pixel values.

    That's what I figured.

  6. I would really recommend keeping the responsive design.

    However, if you'really like to remove it though, you could hire a designer to help you. Here is a form where you can ask what it would take to redesign the responsive parts of your theme: http://en.support.wordpress.com/customize-my-site/request-theme-customization/
