Yes. WordPress has a pretty much responsive Design that solemnly relies on your Website’s Theme and active plugins.
In this article, I’ll review how the responsiveness of your WordPress Website is affected by your Theme and active plugins.
Your WordPress Theme defines how your WordPress Website looks and feels. With a WordPress Theme, your Website’s content will be structured better, you can set how your header and your footer will look, and you can define your Homepage styling in any way you want.
In essence, the main factor that influences the responsiveness of your WordPress Website is the Theme.
Before Installing any theme on your site, you should check their downloads page to see whether Responsive and Mobile Friendliness is listed as one of its features.
As a good start, you should check out the Demo Pages which are often provided by the developers, and review how they look on mobile, tablet, and PC, you can do this using the Chrome Developer Tools.
From my experience, Responsive Themes are mostly found on Themeforest, every single theme that I’ve downloaded from the platform is super responsive and packed with a lot of amazing features.
Anyways, here are the best Responsive WordPress Themes currently, all of them have been tested and reviewed by yours truly, so be rest assured.
Active WordPress Plugins
While Plugins are undoubtedly the feature that makes WordPress the best Content Management System for bloggers and publishers, it also has its own shortcomings.
Plugins can slow down your website and also break your website entirely.
Before you purchase a WordPress Theme, you should always check the theme’s documentation to get their list of Recommended plugins or compatible plugins.
If you don’t see the plugin you want to install listed, you can Contact the Theme’s Developer who is always ready to help.
Conflicting Plugins are one of the top reasons why some WordPress Websites lose their responsiveness, you should never use two plugins that perform the same functions on your site be it SEO Plugins, Form Builder Plugins, or even Cache Plugins.
