Responsive, Forum Thumbnails...

Hi. When I started using vbulletin years ago, it was easy to play around with the script. I found an easy way of showing small thumbnails next to each forum and everyone was happy.

Today Google is downgrading my site and I am losing traffic, basically all traffic from mobile devices because according to Google, my website shows more than 10,000 errors

Usability issue Pages with issues
1 Touch elements too close 9,293
2 Viewport not configured 8,659
3 Small font size 8,657

I am trying to fix those but can't find out answers. I did hours of searching but did not get to the end of it. Any help would be welcome.

1. vbulletin 4.2.3, with mobile style installed and chosen in the style options to be displayed to mobile devices.

2. When I use a mobile phone emulator, indeed, the mobile style is NOT picked up, and my site shows with the desktop default blue style.

3. Forum Runner active, but apparently Google did not consider it.

The thing is that even if I find a responsive theme and install it, I would still wish to add my ads and site header to it, which would make it not responsive again....

There are thousands of coders and designers out there who say they could fix this, but I can't trust a stranger with my 12 year old site.... I can't give ftp access, and can't give admin or control panel access to someone I don't know.

What shall I do? I don't want my website to die .... Google is already burrying it in a grave...
the vbulletin script is way too expensive for the support you get.....
