Responsive pages

I seem to be using the theme 2014. Can you explain why it is not displaying responsively on my 1920 x 1200 screen.?

It appears to be responsive... what are you seeing when you view the page? Does it change when you resize your screen, or view it with a mobile device?

Hi, I am viewing it from my laptop. 25% of the right side of my screen is empty. Is there a way I can upload screen shots here?

No, I have a lot more empty space on the right hand side. Pity I cannot upload screen shots onto here. I have not created a dropbox account yet.

So I'm suspecting what you see is due to your screen size, but it's actually the expected behaviour for that theme at that size. The space is empty because you haven't put any content into it yet. :)

Not so much screen size rather screen resolution. I wonder if I should be looking for a more responsive theme.

I don't think it's the responsiveness of the theme that is the issue here, rather that you'd like it to look differently at your screen size (Aside: with css and media queries, we really are talking about screen size, the actual resolution of the device is mostly normalized - 'pixels' in css are actually an angular measurement, not the same thing as pixels when talking about display resolution).

I'd look at more of the many free WP themes and see if one catches your eye. :)
