WordPress Theme Detector Blog

WPThemeDetector goes responsive

Some of you may have already noticed that our site is now responsive. I know it´s taken a while, but it´s finally here.

I´ve always thought that a tool like WPThemeDetector is not intended to be used from any kind of location and from mobile devices. As I´ve always said, our detector was not developed for sniffing around other people´s websites, but as a valuable tool for learning from others how to achieve some particular looks or functionalities on your own site or on the websites you develop for your clients.

Therefore, the natural devices for WPThemeDetector are desktop or laptop computers on your office desk. Our tool also provides a lot of information details that fit best on a large screen. That said, I also agree with many of you about the fact that at least our blog pages should have been made responsive from the beginning. My fault.

Some other projects have kept me away from improving this site for a while. And not only from making it evolve, you could say, since our blog has been kind of dormant for many months as well. Well, it´s never too late and I finally found the time to work on the responsive features for the WPTD site. And after that, I´m also ready to resume working on the blog and to begin posting more regularly again.

Making our blog responsive was easy, but a lot of work has been involved in making the rest of the site responsive as well. And once I started working on it, I wanted the whole site to be responsive.

So now you´ll get responsive pages all over the site. Not just the blog or the homepage, but also the detector results or even our top report pages are now responsive.
I still encourage you to use a laptop or desktop computer when using our tool, because that way you will get all the details and you´ll get them nicely arranged on your screen. But it´s up to you now, since now at least you´ve got the freedom to choose.

Is that good news for you?
