[RESOLVED] "Responsive" stylesheet having no affect whatsoŽver on my phone
The website is http://www.mrinitialman.com/TestSite At full width, the navigation is on the left, the subnavigation (such as the Library page) on the right. At smaller resolutions, the two menus should be on top and bottom, respectively. But on my phone screen, they are on the left and right. I've tested the sheet by resizing the window, and that works fine, but it still has no effect on my phone. What's going on? The stylesheet is at http://www.mrinitialman.com/TestSite...ain_screen.css

Reason: Skipped a few words, which ended up being misleading.
You are missing a key <meta> tag:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
In dog beers I've only had one.
... all the neat lil' new tricks that - for me - I used once and awhile ago and because I hadn't really develop[ed]ly coded for awhile I forgot ...
Thanks again - keep the small and seemingly insignificant material coming ...it should never be under-stressed or overlooked to mention.
Never even heard of that meta tag, but it worked wonders. Thank you.

Using the viewport meta tag with a web page that is not responsive is likely to be less user-friendly than not using the tag.
So in other words, the <meta> tag tells the device "You don't have to scale this page down; the code's got small screens covered."
