When I said I use the CMS, I mean I use vb articles as my homepage. Look at Bordersdown.net
I use metro mobile theme and styled version of the vb theme for my full screen style

Checked Bordersdown.net. It's not responsive at all and there are many errors HTML in the source code (the errors are in red color).

If by responsive you mean one style that resizes itself perfectly for every device, then good luck with that in vb4....
But it switches to metro style on a mobile (it won't do this if you just switch to mobile mode in chrome inspect tool - you have to actually use a mobile device, or select it from the style picker drop down) and Google thinks it's mobile friendly with Google Search Console reporting no mobile issues.

It's not perfect but looks decent and works

Yes, I mean one style that resizes itself perfectly for every device. I think it's more complicated with nested stylesheets of vB4 + vB CMS; maybe easier on a forum with tables like vB3.

Yes, I view the site and I like a lot.
But you can and use CMS-Articles, true?
I don't have CMS-Articles, and with my license, if I want install CMS-Articles I need upgrade my license (about 159$)...I think its very expensive, but your site have good look and its like I want my site...

About t his, the vendor/owner of metro mobile syte respone to me yesterday, he indicate that, is not good for google, but you indicate its good for your for google and not have errors with google search console, then, I think its good.

I will be guided by your experience, although the seller has told me that it is not good for google, if it is for you, I understand that it is.

I am not looking for a theme that is the same in the desktop version as in the mobile version, the theme that I have in the desktop version I like very much (and users too) has dark blue tones, the mobile version, I am looking for it that is light, with light colors and Above all, good for Google, and I think that the metro version that you have advised me meets those conditions.

When the seller told me that it was not good for google, then it gave me "some fear" and I did not make the purchase at that time, but if you say it is good for google, I will make the purchase, the load, how about? I have tried it from my mobile device, and I see it as good. Google Insights gives you a very good score on your website with metro mobile theme.

Therefore, my doubts were resolved, I will acquire this theme for my mobile version.

Too bad I don't have CMS-Articles, really, the design of your site is the one I would like to have.
Accessing the index of your mobile site, it also has a very good appearance, it will not be responsive, but as if it were.

I greatly appreciate your comments.

Note that I added in extra buttons to the mobile header to make navigation easier.

Here's the code for my mobile style header template. Please don't just copy paste - it won't work. You need to read mine, compare it to yours and understand the changes and then write the changes needed to yours, plus add relevant button images.

I also added an easy link to the full size style, because editing posts on mobile style is a nightmare

Hi,

I really appreciate your comments and help.

Indeed, yesterday when I was looking at your site with my mobile through metro theme mobile, I saw what you mentioned, some icons above for better interaction with the user, and in the footer, the full size option.

I did not know that the option to edit is a nightmare (a pity) because really, the theme is not responsive, but as I told you, yesterday when I browsed it, I really liked it and it seems almost responsive, it looked really good. I looked at those top menu options.

Analyzed with google insights gives a really excellent result, all this contradicts what the author told me, I almost did not advise him, he said that it was not good for google, but it is.

I appreciate your comments, I am guided and trust more of them than those of the author.

At the same time, I thank you for the code, as you say, it is not copy and paste, I do not like to do that, I like to look at it, see what it does, adapt it, in some things my knowledge comes, in others maybe not, but even where my knowledge does not arrive, I try to know what it does and why. I have already seen certain parts of the code that I will adapt to mine, I have variable phrases changed on my site, so I will adapt it to mine. I will make the comparison, see and adapt it. As I comment, I thank you very much for your comments and directions.

I'm going to buy the theme, I hope to have it installed and adapted this week, as soon as I have it, I'll let you know.

Thank you!
