Hello! I’m planning to convert a theme from fixed to responsive, So is it better to just edit and make current theme Responsive and upload or create a fresh new one with same design. Add more features and make it responsive. Will it be accepted?

Thanks alot for reading! :D

it all depends if all your css is fixed width or if most are percentage.

If they are fixed width it may be easier to start a fresh.

The base to do it is add some media queries to the sizes:

- Tablet - Mobile Landscape - Mobile Portrait

Then, edit the things to each size ;D

Wow, looks like nobody reads threads anymore ^^

To answer your question, i would say it depends on how many functions you add. At least morally it seems a bit questionable if you only add responsiveness and not much more.

But i have no clue how the official envato policy is about this.

Hi,
I went through the same proces and I decided to make the previous theme responsive. I think this is the correct approach.
One thing that I think it’s essencial is to have the option to turn on/off the responsiveness on the Dashboard. This will make that on eventual future updates your previous buyers don’t have to use the theme responsiveness if they don’t want to.

The old rule on ActiveDen was that you could make up to 3 versions of a product as long as each version had enough differences to qualify as a new version. Personally I think responsive qualifies as a new version. But only if the template is 100% responsive (lightbox, sliders, etc.)

I’d just edit the current style sheet. This way, you don’t have to recode everything, that’s what I did with my current theme.
