Omega has a Drupal 6 version, but I see no text about what it can/can't do in Drupal 6 in terms of how responsive it is.

I downloaded and installed Omega on both D6 and D7, and enabled the base starter themes.

For D7, in Firefox... I see the layout change when I resize my browser.

For D6, in Firefox... I DO NOT see the layout change when I resize my browser.

Question: Is there another way for me to test D6 to see how responsive it is?

Question: If the D6 version isn't truly responsive, then what does it do?

I'm not 100% sure, as I don't use the Omega, but I think it's because only the 3.x branch is the responsive one. Meaning that versions 6.1 is NOT responsive, only the Omega 7.3 is.

I've also been searching for a Drupal 6 responsive base theme, but couldn't find one, which saddens me.

I won't be able to upgrade to Drupal 7 for several reasons, so I guess I'll try to adapt a responsive boilerplate like Skeleton to Drupal 6. Actually used it in Drupal 7 and worked a charm.

Hope it helps.

Since looking at Omega, I've read some basic tutorials on responsive design, and the basic theory is pretty easy. You definitely don't need a module to take care of it for you, especially for a basic site. I have done a from-scratch HTML responsive template but not for D6 yet. I think the only thing that could get in the way is the html doc type being defined in D6 core and what limitation that might bring.

info about d6 and its features. as far as i am informed there will not be happening heavy development on d6, only major bugs/security will be fixed.

Hi bmateus,
Did you try adapting skeleton to drupal 6 ? Any Success stories, please share.

Sorry, sande.

Not yet, sorry. Managed to upgrade to Drupal 7 on the project I needed responsive layouts.

But you can also try the ZEN theme, and then using CSS media-queries to rebuild the page according to the layout.
