Responsive design?

Hey ya'll! Love my Indiemade site and would be even in more heaven if there was a skin that had responsive design or was otherwise optimized for mobile devices. I know e-commerce can be tricky on a mobile device ... so maybe full-fledged mobile websites aren't something you could do in the short-term. But even if people can't "checkout" on a mobile device, if they could still have an optimized experience, that would be terrific. :-)

Thanks for listening to the suggestion!

We agree

Rebecca, we completely agree. Getting e-commerce right on a phone is pretty tricky but it's important.

That's why all our new themes are fully responsive, and we're in the process of making our existing themes responsive as best we can. So for example Splendid is responsive out of the box, and Austin has been retrofitted. And we have a new responsive theme coming out in very short order.

We're tackling the existing themes in order of popularity on the network. So you can either try one of the existing responsive themes and see how it works on our site, just by switching to it -- or you can sit tight. Up to you. :-)

Leaf is now Live

Just to follow up on this, last night we released Leaf, a new responsive theme that "tiles" the thumbs intsead of placing them in a grid. It also stretches the content background across the entire viewport. We think it's pretty cool.
