Learning how to do responsive websites seems mandatory. I’ve worked some with Project Seven tools. Am reading a good book, “Jump Start Responsive Web Design.” Been asking questions on the Wise Women web workers discussion list. Planning to renew my membership at lynda. Thinking about learnable.
I have two clients who’d like their sites to go responsive. One is a WordPress site now using Atahualpa theme. For a while I thought I’d just convert to its sibling responsive theme from bytesforall: Montezuma.
There’s not much doc – there is a Montezuma forum. Nice place. But the forum’s generous volunteer moderators have to work hard just to offer very simple answers to some of the questions. The forum isn’t designed or “manpowered” to be comprehensive.
I’m a designer, not a code warrior. No better than intermediate in making WordPress do a reasonable share of what I want it to do. It struck me that if a Premium theme came with willing and thorough support, that might work better for me.
Your description of Sterling brags (convincingly) about customer support. Says the theme is designed for the range from veteran pro to beginner. Says you’re a design shop. All of that sounds good to me.
You have many videos. You have other doc. I’m happy to immerse myself in that kind of support before seeking the help of a living person.
Do you think we’d be a good fit?
Chuck M BTW, I searched themes at wordpress.org for “Sterling.” No results. But the theme isn’t new (though the version is). Does its absence at that site mean anything?

Howdy. How do I set up a live wordpress test site in a live environment where an HTML site is currently running & how do I migrate it once complete to be the live site?
Please assist , hope this is the right place for this question. I want to pick a theme for a client from Themeforest. I have directed them here to choose a Wordpress theme.
My questions are as follows: 1. How do I set up a Wordpress test site on the same domain as a current site that is not hosted in Wordpress. I want to build this client a new site in Wordpress which should be visible as with live access to the client for approval and changes before going live. Once it has been approved and signed off I need to replace the current boring HTML site with the completed Wordpress site.
2. Once the test site is compete, how do I migrate it to be live / replace the old (current) site?
Hope that makes sense. Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

Hello, I’m using http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Unit_Test to test a theme for errors and warnings.
Are the reviewers using this data.xml too for testing a theme?
And how can I see the .js errors. There is Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < jquery.flexslider-min.js:4 in a theme while i cant see this error in any browser console. What do i have to do to see these errors?
Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have a license-related question. I’m interested in a Wordpress theme “Made”. Imagine I’ll buy a Regular license for $50 with an option to use in on 1 domain only. I have an existing site, e.g. xyz.com, built on a different platform than Wordpress.
Is it OK to install the WP first on a subdomain like “test.xyz.com” and create the new wordpress version of my website, and afterwards migrate to the main domain “xyz.com” ?
So there are, in the end, questions : 1. Is it easy to migrate to a new domain from test.xyz.com to xyz.com? 2. Is it OK to do so with 1 Regular license?
Thanks for clarification.

What did you think of when you saw this?
It represents the NSFW for images (Adult Images) that would go over such images. Please help us by telling if you thought the same. I believe the X does a great a job by saying “No, this is locked!” but I’d like to know if you guys think the same!
Thanks a lot!

I have created yet another tool to test responsive designs.
I’m sharing this tool here on TF as you might find it useful in your current media query projects.
About tool : Breakpoint Tester Is Bookmarklet Which Scans Website Stylsheets (Same Domain Only) To Find User Defined Media Query Breakpoints. Basically, It Let’s You Check Responsive Designs By Breakpoints Rather Than Fixed Device Widths.
Check : http://breakpointtester.com
It’s still under initial phase. Your feedbacks are welcome.
Just a quick note in case you see it in the wild – we’re running a small A/B test on item pages over the next few days.
Instead of the usual panel sliding down from the top of the page, a very small percentage of users will see this when they click the “Purchase” button:

I want to share my tool with our community.
Its a very simple site with Jquery, and there you can choose what device you want to display your website, like iPhone, iPad, Tablet and Smartphone with Android.
I use this tool to display my projects in my portfolio, it’s a simple tool to give to my jobs a fine finish ( http://pixeel.me/Proxer )
I hope you like!

I always use three tools to check websites for coding errors I thought I would post the link to my favourite so developers can ensure they have good clean code.http://www.powermapper.com/products/sortsite/checks/seo-checks.htm
I notice a lot of templates use an import for the css which is not good there are some amazing developers out their however from an end users point of view I don’t like spending hours cleaning up the code before I start setting up my content.
Another site I use for testing load speed is http://gtmetrix.com/ these are both free services and could help improve the various template designs being offered and will save the customer time trying to fix bugs
just a suggestion

I am quite new to this webdesign and wordpress thing. Now that i have my first wordpress blog theme almost complete (i have been developing it using MAMP on a local server) i would like to find a place online to host it, so i can show it to other people, to friends, and maybe in forums, so i can ask for feedback.
I mean, there are things like JSFiddle und Github and so on. Is there something like this for a blog. A place where i could install wordpress, install the theme i am developing and give the link to my friends. Something temporary. Something free. It doesn’t need to have a lot of storage space.

I just purchased x theme. I read a post before buying that i could upload the theme to a test domain. I have a parked domain or can set up sub domain. Just want to clarify that i can set entire site up on test domain and publish to check and work with site. Totally new to wordpress but use rapid weaver now so just the dashboard alone is completely new. Then when all is ready switch to the original domain from my hostgator dashboard and set site up there? After building the entire site is there a simple method to switching over to the original domain and have the entire site there? Hope that is not a confusing question, not use to a web based set up.

I just wonder if I am the only one having this question: Can I test prior to buying?
I have been looking into several multi-purpose themes for Wordpress and then came across X. Actually by the authors’ description every theme is the best, it’s unique and has unbelievable features.
That’s where I come in: I don’t want to believe what descibed as unbelievable. I would like to see for myself before I buy.
Is that an option?
What do other buyers do: Just buy a pig in a poke?
I can guarantee that I will be buying to theme because I want to get a job done. Buy I need to be sure that the header can be done just the way the designers did it. And I don’t want to start digging the code and alter it by myself facing the risk that I have to do or even check it every time an update is available.
