Using the Chita Skin

Hi I downloaded the Chita skin to use with the b2evolution blog. The blog istelf is embedded in my site using an iframe - link is here - http://edgeworthstown.net/media/blog/

I chose this skin because it was designated fluid so I felt it would keep in my overall mobile/tablet friendly site. However when I view this page on my phone I can only see the side bar. I have tred both left and right as options and they both work the same . However it works fine on my ten-inch tablet. Is this just something I have to live with? A consequence of shoehorning the blog into an iframe?

Hi @jmcgerr,

Sadly that skin doesn't seem to be responsive, so struggling with elements in small viewports is normal. However, I can see your site (http://edgeworthstown.net/blog/blog1.php) in a acceptable layout from my phone. Avoid using iframes is a good idea.

Keep in touch because a lot of clean, sleek and responsive skins will be released pretty soon, so maybe you would like to use one of them in your site.

Regards!

as the author I gotta say It's a very old skin. You are better of using one of the recent responsive bootstrap themes.

Thanks for the responses - the reason iIchose the Chita skin was the easy customisation - I'm not very adept with CSS so when I saw the list of options I was delighted.

About the iframe - not sure of another way to integrate the blog within the site. maybe for someone who knows php but I'm not one of them.

Quick note: having many customization options for every skin is coming soon... ;)
