XF 1.1 When did xenforo's theme get so responsive?

I still remember when it used a min-width on it's page width...now it's crazy responsive and goes all the way down really low width. Also it's mobile friendly too!

When did this happen? and is it possible to update the theme without updating versions?

If you want a responsive theme in 1.1, you will need to do all the CSS yourself, it will be easier to upgrade to 1.2 when its released as a stable version.

Most add-ons are fairly compatible with 1.2, I believe there have been few exceptions to this. Regardless, many of those that didn't work received updates to get them functional on 1.2 already.

So if we have 1.2 and install an older theme, all themes will be responsive? Or is there something the theme developer has to do to make it compatible?

Styles created for 1.1 may need to be updated for 1.2.

There is an on/off checkbox to make styles responsive.

Depending on how many template edits the theme maker has done it could be an easy upgrade.

For the most part upgrading to 1.2 is super easy off the bat, fine tuning custom themes with the responsive part is the time consuming part.

Main things to check...

Style Properties -> General

HTML/BODY, remove any min-width/width settings
PAGE-Width Controller, set max-width instead of a fixed width
PAGE_CONTAINER needs to be updated(it calls the responsiveness)
Default xenforo CSS templates usually have custom responsive CSS at the end.

OK, so if it's a real fancy looking theme that moved stuff around a lot then probably they have to make it compatible to 1.2 then. If they just changed the default colors and didn't touch the layouts, then it's probably ok.

For the most part yes, if just the color palette and style properties was changed for the most part you'd just need to check the first 2 steps of my first post. This is speaking rather loosely :)
