Hi All, Apologies for the potentially dumb question but I need a quick answer to a client question and my usual go to web gurus on here will be asleep in the states. A client asked us today – “If we bought a fully responsive theme on TF, we know how works on a laptop, tablet and mobile BUT if we then add it as a Facebook Fan page – will it “respond” and work there too?” My gut instinct is to say yes but I had a sudden concern I was missing something to do with the Iframe element. Anyone know if it would work or if it would need further modification? Thank you!

It should. But consider that your client will need https available in order to run the site on Fb Apps.

EDIT : After reading below comment, of course the CSS needs a responsible parameter setup on 810px width.

I don’t think it will “respond” to different screen sizes as the css is controlled externally. I would suggest downloading something quick and easy like Twitter Bootstrap which is already responsive and throw the facebook plugin and there and test it to be certain.

Hope that helps.

Thank you both so much for the quick replies – its a wierd question that should be really simple to answer but makes you think. I am prob going to take one of the TF responsive themes I have bought before and upload it to our test FB page and see what happens. I do not think the CSS should be an issue as the site itself is hosted on our server and we just tag the URL to the page in Facebook but as you said the only way really to know is to test it. I will do it later today and post a reply here is anyone is curious.

Thank you again for the quick replies

Just to follow up. The answer is yes the responsive sites do resize themselves to fit. HOWEVER some do look a little strange – the 810px design almost moves menus to mobile/tablet form etc. So while this could be a cool way of maintaining branding and design across the different locations and platforms it appears that it does depend on the site or theme in question and there remains definite merit for designing the same look into a standard 810px page. Thanks for the opinions.
