They are as responsive as any other wix site.

let us know if you're facing specific obstacles with that.
I appreciate the quick response.
I'd actually looked at that help page before writing this post and I think it's really badly written. It left me not that much the wiser. Why talk about "strips", but not images, or text or buttons etc?
The impression I get is responsiveness on Wix is "patchy" at best.
I'm worried by what I'm seeing on your own sites:
This actual forum does not work on my mobile. The new post editor does not work on Android Chrome (Nexus 6p). I typed in a full question in the original post, the editor is all over the place, and deleted every one of my words. Hence my first post is blank, just a question mark. It's unusable on mobile.
I've seen this buggy behaviour elsewhere on Wix sites like the blog.The new wix blog has the same mobile editing issues, and I've seen others report it saying its buggy.
Other designers - 2 different people today - have said to me this "don't touch Wix, it doesn't do responsive sites", hence my question. Saying "it's as responsive as any other Wix site" makes me think , you're not mobile responsive.
One of your Wix Code demos - the Bolden Academy one - is also not fully responsive. It was one of the first things I tested. See picture below - that doesn't look responsive to me.
You have to learn that WIX sites are not fully responsive in the way that you normally drag a browser window and the design hooks into breakpoints and shows you the responsive version. They have desktop and mobile, according to our work the desktop is also shown on tablets but not all elements are stretched and modified to fit.
They have come a long way and if you put some love into the mobile design your clients will be very happy. We have been working with WIX since 2012 and it continues to be better and better.
If you want full control over css, breakpoints and responsivness WIX is not for you, then you might go with some other platform instead.
I have realised that WIX is so powerful and makes building sites faster than ever that the limitations i something you learn to live with and overcome.
I hope that you will start to like this and together with WIX code also se the abilities that we see and that you don’t get in other platforms.
But as I said, WIX is not for CSS Picassos or coding control gurus, I have a bunch of them here and they will not work with WIX until they day you can access and play around with the raw CSS.
I don't want to play around with code, there are ways of making a site responsive without resorting to code but it depends on how the website builder works. I can't figure out what Wix is even trying to do when it comes to responsiveness.
I've read the help page and I'm still not clear how responsive Wix is and how it works. It seems to be looking for a mobile browser but that seems to mean it won't work well on large tablets which your post implies? I've not tested this on tablets
WIX sites are checking the form factor for desktop or mobile, tablets are treated as desktop as far as I know. So you can’t expect to test responsivness of any wixsite with just a web browser except using developer tools in a browser or your actual phone.
According to google mobile friendly test the page I created in WIX is mobile friendly.
And according to Pingdom Speed Test it is rather fast as well.
Try it and test it on device and you will be surpriced how good looking it will be on mobile.
Does WIX code not allow you to make the site full responsive? example here of how I'd like my site to react: http://camptimberlane.ca/
