I'm building a Wordpress website at http://xscoder.com/wp-demo/test/

I am not able to make it responsive, although all CSS and JS scripts are successfully loaded, as you may see in the Inspector. I guess it's something related to slicknav, although I'm not sure about it, here's the code of my main.js file to call slicknav responsive JS:

            prependTo: '.site-branding',
            label: '',
            allowParentLinks: true

May you guys can check my wesbite with the Chrome Inspector and see if there's something wronng, the Console soesn't print any error so I don't really know what I'm doing worng, I'm anewbie :)

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Your question about HTML/CSS/JS, so you should ask them on Stack Overflow. – nmr Apr 5 '19 at 14:31

    did you add something like ` <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">` to your head? – rudtek Apr 5 '19 at 17:17
  • @rudyek that was the solution, thanks so much! – Frank Eno Apr 5 '19 at 22:27
  • Great news! I added it as an answer below. Do you mind marking as the solution? (check mark to the left of the answer) – rudtek Apr 6 '19 at 18:55

Often times even if we have setup our media queries correctly, the site still isn't responsive to those queries.

You need to set a viewport in your header.php to fix this. More often than not I find that this affects macs instead of PCs. but it's still a good idea to add this no matter the case.

In your site <head> add this code:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

And it should fix the problem. This is telling the site to be aware of the device width that is viewing the site.

Add this into your head tags:

<script src="jquery-3.3.1.min.js"></script>

I have not found a recent jQuery version in your head tags and SlickNav requires jQuery 1.7+.

I do not know if this is the solution for your issue, but try it.

  • But for compatibility with a number of things, one should use the old version of jQuery bundled with WordPress, as he's doing. – Loren Rosen Apr 5 '19 at 18:46
  • ... so there's a potential dilemma between compatibility with SlickNav and other things. Would depend on what else is use. – Loren Rosen Apr 6 '19 at 20:50
  • The solution was the missing 'viewport' meta tag, thank you so much anyway @Javi Torre – Frank Eno Apr 8 '19 at 6:41
