This mobile-first approach to responsive design provides site visitors with an optimal viewing experience; whether browsing from a desktop, tablet or smartphone device, site content is clean, simple, and easy to navigate.
Non-responsive (legacy) WCMS is now deprecated; sites should migrate to the responsive design.
A cut-off date has been set for migrating all WCMS non-responsive sites to the responsive design. If sites are not migrated by August 31, 2017, they will be automatically migrated.
Refined brand implementation
Over the next several months, you’ll start to see the visual design from our refined brand guidelines being implemented across several of our responsive WCMS themes.
Making your WCMS site responsive
After we receive your request, we will confirm the details and set a schedule for the conversion. On the scheduled date, a copy of your site will be moved to our staging server. The point of contact (POC) will need to arrange for the content to be reviewed in the new design to ensure an optimal viewing experience for site visitors (see Tips for migrating to the responsive template).
New WCMS sites
New WCMS sites will be created in the responsive design.
