    The most likely solution would be to create a new CSS file that will be active only for screen resolutions that a mobile device would have listed somewhere in your <head>. Unless you're going to change the colours depending on the resolution, I prefer to have a master file that is responsible for only displaying the colours, font styles, etc... . This way, the other CSS files are only responsible for adjusting font sizes and positions of elements on the page. For example:

    HTML Code:
    <link rel = "stylesheet" type = "text/css" href = "master.css" />
    <link rel = "stylesheet" type = "text/css" href = "mobile.css" media = "screen and (max-width: 700px") />
    You may need to adjust the max-width depending on the mobile device.

    You should learn about "responsive design", which is a way of making pages that automatically adjust to the user's device. Your code makes no adjustment for screen size except for the 'viewport' <meta> tag. All of your images have a fixed size in pixels. Almost the entire structure of the page is fixed. If you want to make one website for all devices, then using responsive design is the solution. There are many online tutorials for responsive design to help you.

    Of course, not every design can be easily adapted to the responsive design approach. It may simply not be practical to provide all of the features you're using on a mobile device with a limited screen size. It might be better to design a separate site for mobile users.

    I would try something like

    @media (max-width:468px) {
    body{max-width: 1200px; width:100%;}

    Adjust max-width and width values accordingly
