We here at Typepad know that your readers don't just look at your blog on a traditional computer screen. They use smart phones and tablets and want to be able to access your blog on the go and you need a good responsive theme to really make your blog shine for them.
We've introduced some great responsive themes (Have you checked out our beautiful Gourmet theme yet?), but what about those of you that have created your own personal design and want to continue to use it but want to get the functionality of a responsive theme? Have no fear! Typepad has your back with the brand new responsive theme builder!
It's easy to use the responsive theme builder. It works just as the theme builder you love, but has a few more options. You can go to Design > Theme Builder to take a look at them.
From there, it's just a simple check box to get you on your way to using the responsive theme builder! You can also switch to a non-responsive theme and back with ease. We've got more information on this feature in our Knowledge Base.
The responsive theme builder is currently only for our Beta Team members, but if you want to try it out now, that's also easy to do! Just go to the Account tab, check the box for the Beta Team, and save your changes. Presto! The new responsive theme builder is within your account!
We want to make this feature as useful for you as it can be, so if you're a beta member, please do give it a good run through and let us know what you think. Found something that doesn't seem to be working quite right? Let us know! Is there something you'd like to see it do as well? Let us know that too!
