You can easily turn your wordpress powered website into a responsive website using some great responsive plugins. To help you limit your search, Today’s wordpress wednesday post I’ve put together a small list of 8 WordPress responsive plugins to help you out. The list includes plugins for sliders, images, videos, layouts and more.

1.  Respond.js

Respond.js is a fast & lightweight polyfill for min/max-width CSS3 Media Queries (for IE 6-8, and more).

2. Responsive Select Menu

The Responsive Select Menu plugin automatically turns any WordPress 3 Menu into a select box / dropdown on mobile devices.

  • Works automatically – no need to add extra PHP code

3.  Vertical Response Newsletter Widget

Add a Vertical Response signup form to your sidebar without touching code.

      Hi Cheryl,

      I believe that is still in the development process, It would be disappointing if this plugin doesn’t go ahead as many of us had featured this plugin in various WordPress related blog posts in the past.
