The Media Queries Responsive Code
 
More details | MQs in this template control many parts of each webpage to conform for mobile and tablet. The responsive MQs css classes are located in the "media-queries.css". Four stages are used for screen widths of 1050, 890, 740 and 482 pixels. As the browser width is made more narrow and each "stage" width threshold (breakpoint) is reached, code defined in the "media-queries.css" will take effect changing the webpage layout. You can edit these sizes in the "media-queries.css" using any plain text editor.

The "media-queries.css" is for mobile and includes some of the same class names as the "style.css" to alter these classes as the browser width becomes more narrow.

When editing any font sizes in this template you will need to edit the class in the "style.css", then edit the duplicate class(es) in the "media-queries.css" to setup the mobile font sizes. See responsive support details.
