    I manage a site for children in Hebrew. The site is already 10 years old and I build and manage it by myself, using an old, now obsolete program. The homepage is an HTM with about 3000 links to a data base of pdf documents.
    Lately I received complaints, probably from mobile computers visitors, saying that the site appears in gibberish.
    What can be done to correct this.
    I add often new documents to the base and I wouldnÂ’t like to change the working program to which I am used.
    Please advise.
    Thanks

    Hi idr, In order for you to make your site view-able on all the various device types, you would have to change it to a "responsive" layout, which is a major rebuild. I am assuming that your have been using a WYSIWYG website platform (What you see is what you get) and do not have an in-depth knowledge of css or html. That being the case I recommend two action plans:
    1. Employ a web designer to adapt your existing site ... OR ...
    2. Look for an online conversion tool (here's one that you may like)

    But be warned that if you go this route you will have to find a way of editing your site which can handle responsive coding.
