Wild Apricot Update – February 2015: Responsive Design and Super-charged Support
By Steve Andrews, Picky Apricot (Technical Communicator)
In last month’s Update, we noted that the theme for the first part of 2015 was “responsive”. As part of our ongoing Product Roadmap enhancements, we’re working on a number of initiatives to make your Wild Apricot websites more mobile friendly. Providing website templates that offer responsive design is a key starting point.
In this month's Update, we'll delve deeper into responsive design. We’ll look at the resources we are providing to support responsiveness – including our new responsive themes and the upgrading of existing themes throughout the year – and how you can transition your Wild Apricot site to a responsive format.
We’ll also introduce our new Support Team Manager, Kevin Jervis, who has taken on the important role of supervising and leading our team of Software Support Consultants.

But...how exactly does one do this? What does it mean for your organization, volunteers and staff? Where do you start?!
