As a result, more viewers can visit it thus uplifting the conversion of the site. All this is good, but it is only one side of this problem. Having a site adjust to any screen resolution is a must-have point for site owners, but there is something else behind it. To understand it deeply, you should know a bit more about including the list of its minor cons. Let’s enumerate the main of them:
• You need a lot of time to code it.
• It is expensive. And if you have a low budget, perhaps, it’s better to utilize it for other points of building a site.
• It takes longer loading time.
• It’s not easy to adjust the titles, descriptions etc. on mobile phones. All it goes about SEO.
• Such sites aren’t viewed by search engine crawlers as separate mobile sites. That’s the reason they shouldn’t be viewed as a tactic to rank your website.
• According to the latest researches, people use 1024px resolutions and up, and this speaks not in the favor of responsive design.
• Some users without technical knowledge will not understand the difference of layouts on different devices.
Being responsive is a must-have thing in today’s life, especially when it goes about web technologies. We accept everything not only from the desktop screen, but from various handheld devices, that’s why responsive design is in a great need. There are two ways of how to get a responsive site – to build the one from the ground up or turn the existing static one into it. Both variants are good.

Bootstrap hit the market in 2011, and caused a real craziness all over the web. People started creating Bootstrap based websites, and today their number grows. What’s the secret of its popularity?

That’s about Bootstrap itself. And what makes Bootstrap themes undoubtedly powerful? Here are the main three of them:
- Framework + child theme.
- Easy sample data install.
- Framework update.
Cherry themes are presented in several archives: one includes framework files i.e. parent theme, another one – child theme files. Child theme inherits functionalities of the parent theme, and allows you to modify it by adding any possible functionalities.
You don’t need plenty of time for the installation of such a theme. All files needed for adequate template display are installed in three steps.
When it comes to maintaining these days, a self-respecting company should provide its customers with updates of software or any other products. The same principle works with Cherry themes, once you install the framework, from time-to-time you’ll be able to install updates of the frame. Programmers are working daily and nightly to improve Cherry framework functionalities, by the time major update is ready you’ll be notified within your WordPress admin panel.
