    HI,

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I have an existing site that is not optimized for mobile and has existing classes from an existing style sheet.

    There are elements on the page that i would like to only show on mobile and I would like to restyle these elements as well.

    is there a way to do this without touching the HTML? ie by editing the css alone?

    Cheers

    Possibly, but without seeing the HTML we can’t really give any real suggestions.

    We can offer generalities but they may not work in your specific situation.

    Can you provide us with a link?

    Simple answer…No.

    I could be wrong but the code is reminiscent of a Dreamweaver template layout.

    I mean….there is stuff we could do…but I think the amount of work required to make this properly responsive would probably be equivalent to (or more than) the amount required to start all over again.

    I’m not suggesting losing any of the content but the HTML structure is (IMO) not conducive to retro-fitting in responsiveness.
