    Hi again!

    Handmade is sold as a theme which is responsive and mobile friendly. I do not know if I have done someting wrong but my widgets does not show if you read my blog on an iPhone or iPad.

    And even worse my featured photos do bot show at all! They are of course the most important photo of a post…! Please help me with this as soon as you can! I’m also eagerly waiting for replies on all my other questions in this forum!

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hello,
    When I view your site in mobile mode, both your featured images and widgets are appearing. The widgets will move below your post list. Please test on http://responsive.is.
    On your device, ensure Safari is up to date and clear your browser cache.

    Hi again! When I look at responsive.is everything is working fine but at our home, we are 3 people with iPhones (2 with 4S and 1 with a 5) and none of us can see the featured photo nor the widgets…?

    It looks great on the iPad though…

    I have now checked with some of my friends who also uses iPhone. We all have the same problems viewing this theme so it must be a bug:
    1. The featured image is not shown (unless you also publish it within the post once and then it shows twice on a computer or iPad.)
    2. The widgets are all gone
    3. The home page is empty. No content what so ever. Only the sharing symbols (Facebook, Twitter and so on) are displayed.

    Hello,

    We were able to test your site on an iPhone and you have a mobile app feature installed – the theme is not being used. You can learn more here:

    Sorry, but I do not understand your answer…??

    How do I use the theme so that it is visable for my readers who have iPhones? I want them to see my blog with widgets and all!

    Somehow I found a way to make the featured image show. It was an option I had not noticed before… But widgets are still gone!

    The showcase page (which was the reason I bought this theme) I have rejected totally. I’m not using it at all as the sticky post bit had so many restrictions and I could not make a beautiful gallery to display my DIY tip as you do show on the preview of the theme… Very disappointing! :(
    When the Showcase page does not show at all on an iPhone I gave it up…

    Please help me fix the widget showing!

    Hello,
    You must disable the WordPress.com mobile option (see above for details). Handmade is adaptive by default, meaning when it is viewed on a mobile screen, it will resize automatically. You can test this here by clicking the little mobile icon:
