    Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My website looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able
    to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Thanks!

      Jetpack and WPTouch Mobile are two of our favorite plugins for making a non-responsive theme responsive. Is that feature not built into your theme?

    This web site certainly has all the information and facts I
    wanted about this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

    Jetpack and WPTouch Mobile are very useful plugins for WP Website. If your website is non-responsive, you can use any one of them. But I think JetPack is also helping to prevent hackers and keeping our websites safe and it also have some extra options for WordPress. You will be more beneficial if you have a paid version of JetPack.
