I think, you made all the mistakes, which one is able to make, when creating a responsive site!
1. Have a very concentrated look at your elements on master and layout page: Do they overlap, or are they placed outside the page/breakpoint boundaries? You can check this by coloring your page background (not the browser background) temporarily and use the scubber to examine the behaviour of your single elements.
The second question (overlapping elements) is better discussed after solving the first problem.
First, the site I made was not responsive it was a fixed width, there are no breakpoints. Some of the graphics are overlapped naturally as images on top of different colored graphic blocks.
He wrote, that he Dez Karpati made a non responsive website .
I am interested where this leads to.
I assume the site is not fixed width layout but fluid width layout.
But without a .muse, I won`t assume too much for now.
it is a fixed width layout (1200px) this way the site can "shrink" to smaller devices. The fluid width layout is used for responsive sites, and if there are no additional breakpoint the site won't "shrink"
There is something with the overlapping graphics. I duplicated this site and removed all pages except the home page for simple testing. I removed all the overlapping graphics and it worked. Unfortunately this is still not working for me in the full website. Im still going at it, probably missed one!
Any other ideas?
… and what do you want to say with your last post?
Do this: Delete all unnecessary element and all unnecessary pages to reduce the complexity and size of your site as much as possible. This helps a lot to analyse the issue. Upload this "reduced" site to Dropbox or a similar file sharing service and give us the download link. Then we'll have a closer look.
Yes. My "other idea" is following my last post.
YOU have to try which elements are causing the issue, before deleting them. Or do you want to leave this for us?
I found the problem! It was the Dynamic Copyright widget from Muse Themes!
Fine! Exactly that is one of the reasons, why I always repeat: If someone encounters an issue, give us the .muse file and delete all unnecessary elements before. This makes analyzing easier and often enables the thread opener to find the solution by himself.
