One of the new words in the ever expanding web vocabulary is Responsive. Most of the new Joomla templates at Christian Templates Online, one of our main suppliers for church website templates, are now labeled Responsive, meaning they respond to the different size screens on smart phones and tablets like the Iphone, Ipad, and Android devices.
Many visitors to church websites are on the go and they're taking a quick look at a church site to find out information or see when a service or other event is happening. Responsive templates make it much easier to move around the site, you don't have to shrink the site down to find where you're going and then blow it back up again to read it.
When a responsive template detects one of these different size screens, it makes adjustments to it will be easier to read and to use.
