    Just wondering if you could provide some sort of guidance in how to go about making dynamix a responsive design.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Unfortunately that is a mine field and would require a complete re-write of DynamiX. The structure of responsive designs are completely different and require a specific foundation from the start, when DynamiX was initially designed responsive wasn't on the scene. Plus a lot of the features would require to be removed e.g. some of the galleries.

    yea, but that is the future with more and more mobile users…. at my sites 1/10 users is on mobile phones and ipad…

    I understand this but it's not something you can just switch on. It requires a complete foundation re-write.

    I made very positive experiences with WPtouch Pro. Maybe it is something for you regarding your mobile users. They even have a free plugin so you can try it out first.

    Hi Andy,

     

    reading the blurb on Tersus, the features seem much the same as Dynamix, except Tersus is :

    • Responsive HTML5 / CSS3 Design
    • SEO Optimised including Google Page Speed

    … which I like the idea of 🙂

     

    Is it easy to migrate to Tersus from Dynamix? (BTW I haven’t updated Dynamix to the latest version) – is there a guide for this?

    Hey Neil,

     

    It has the same features as DynamiX + tonnes more and also a lot more flexibility. For example, gallery short codes can be set to any size and grid, group upto 12 columns – so you can place them anywhere, even into a 1/4 column or a sidebar etc. See here for example http://tersus.northvantage.co.uk/grid-shortcode/

     

    The images within galleries are not squished, you can have different aspect ratio images and the gallery will resize to it.

     

    Just activate Tersus as a new theme and it will accept the DynamiX settings and short codes – there maybe one or two tweaks you have to make but should be pretty smooth 😉

    …sort of, on my test rig@home it the pages went berzerk!!! and the style all mixed up, so my quick solution was to export my data (posts, and so on), reset wordpress (via a plugin) and import back, then it all fitted together!!! and my I say Andy, the theme is absolutely brilliant!!!

    Hey Bruno,

     

    It was probably all cached within the browser – a hard refresh probably would have sorted the cosmetic things.

     

    I’m glad you think it’s brilliant – comments like that help make the EPIC amount of hours it took to create worthwhile 😉
