SimplePress From ElegantThemes Is Now Responsive

SimplePress premium WordPress theme is another great template from Elegant Themes that seems to always be at the top of everyone’s list of favorites from the club. The idea behind SimplePress was to develop a layout that was clean and light, free of bloat and unnecessary bells and whistles with an emphasis on content. The theme is intended to be more page-based, and as such is great for businesses looking to implement a professional looking design built on a sold foundation.

Well there’s big news in the world of Elegant Themes as SimplePress premium WordPress theme is now completely responsive from the ground up! That’s right, the classic design that you didn’t think could get any better just got revamped from the ground up to be the final site you may ever need for your business. With SimplePress’ redesign, all of your content now reformats seamlessly depending on the width of the device viewing your site with a little help from some skillfully placed CSS media queries and styles. If you’re unfamiliar with responsive design, a developer essentially places “break points” in the theme and tells the design to do different things at those particular break points. So, for a screen that is larger than 1,000px lets say, you might have the design show a main content section and a sidebar, but for anything that drops beneath 700px or so, maybe the designer has everything flow into a single column so that it’s easier to navigate on a phone. It’s helpful styles like this that will help put your company a step ahead of the competition and make your site a joy to navigate no matter the situation.

Additionally, SimplePress is completely cross-browser compatible, so it can handle a mobile Safari browser on an iOS device, native Android browsers, and desktop browsers even back to the days of Internet Explorer 6. Futhermore, Elegant Themes’ extensive ePanel allows for easy customization of your site and of course you get all of the standard WordPress goodness that you’ve come to expect baked right into the design.
