So I have an HTML template which is responsive and works fine in desktops and mobile devices, however that same template I turned it into a wordpress theme using the same style sheets and everything but its not responsive, its responsive when viewed in desktop but when you see it on a mobile device it still looks like the desktop and not the mobile version, any idea why?

Thanks.

What is the difference between the responsive HTML template and a WP theme? Is it a lot of work to convert the responsive HTML template to a WP theme/skin?

The main difference between responsive HTML template and a responsive WP theme is the same as it is between a regular HTML template and a regular WP theme: in HTML you need to modify everything by hand – this means you need to have coding skills and a lot of hours to spend. In WordPress you can modify almost everything from the back-end, in an interface that looks a lot like a regular desktop based text editor (like MS Word, for example). Also, in WordPress you can modify with a single click a feature present on all the website’s pages (for example the website’s title), while in HTML you need to manually go through all these pages and modify that feature.

It is a lot of work to convert any HTML to WordPress. This work can take anywhere from a couple of days to 6 months, or even more, at a rate of 8 hours per day
