I recieved an email recently alerting me to the fact my sites header wasn’t responsive on some mobile devices.
Before i changed to a mobile responsive theme, i used wptouch which is a plugin for displaying WordPress sites on mobile devices.
Technology changes fast and now most theme developers offer mobile responsive themes.

Test Mobile Responsiveness of StudioPress Themes
After testing my site on the Genesis responsive tool, i discovered my header image wasn’t responsive and need to fix this.
I Placed the below CSS code in my child themes style sheet which seems to fix the problem depending on which online you test it with.
/* Mobile Responsive Header mods */
background-size: contain !important;
Looks fine now however i don’t think all widget content and images are mobile responsive.
What do you think? Did you test your site?
