My WP website can't be displayed properly on smartphone. Can anyone advise what could possibly be the problem?

And also how can I change the font and the size of the text in my website, including the caption description of photographs.

Thanks a lot.

I would make sure that when you choose your theme that it is responsive from the outset and can show on mobiles and tablets. You will be marked down by Google otherwise.

Very good conversation here. When I used wsywig editor, Wix for a site they included a mobile one as well. And my current blogging system, Typepad does marginally ok with this function. It is good to know that this is not available with WordPress Express. It really should be. As I want to use it for at least one site, probably blog like, scrolling down, I would really like this ability so more conversation on good work arounds would be helpful. Thanks.

The jetpack plugin can make any WP site mobile friendly.

I'd be careful with the Jetpack plugin. It can have a huge impact on your site speed (makes it slower). It's known for that issue. :)

Thanks Nicole. I've checked with Google's mobile friendliness test tool and passed. Probably my friend who gave me feedback is using his Nokia Lumia.

If you've passed Google's mobile friendly test, then you're definitely good to go. I think your friend is in need of a mobile friendly smartphone instead. ;)

He was my ex-colleague at Nokia and just left the company due to their amalgamation with Microsoft. He's clinging to Nokia, lol.

Anyway thanks for your advice.

Hey, I have an old Nokia phone laying around. Once you own a Nokia, it's hard to let go. I know how your friend feels like...lol.

All the best. :)

Start with a responsive wordpress theme. If you're on a desktop, you can easily check the theme by resizing your browser to its smallest width. If you see a horizontal scroll bar below when resizing, then the theme is not responsive.

As for changing the font size of your text, you'll have to change its CSS file. In a wordpress theme, it can be found in style.css

I need to change both font type and font size. But how can I access to the CSS file to change it? Please give me more clues. Salamat

You can directly edit the CSS of the theme in Admin->Appearance->Editor if you're just editing a simple style. If you want to learn more about CSS, search online or here in WA.

But I would advice you learn how to use child themes if you're changing many elements. Here's a good lesson.

Unless you have some understanding of how css works don't play around with it, it can have a devastating effect on your site if you get it wrong.
If you do change anything in the stylesheet, always make a copy of the original data you are changing, as if the changes don't work you can always restore it back to the original.
Have you tried the plugin "Tinymce Advanced?" This will let you change fonts and sizes, amongst many other things, and is easy to use.

Petervcrisp has you covered there. A responsive theme is what you need as it will automatically adjust to any screen size.
