Default Best way to convert 4.5.5 to Responsive, Theme I can purchase

Hi,

I know this is the day before deadline but I have been working on other sites trying to get ready and now I am down to my last one just 24 hours before deadline.

Specifics:
Xcart Store runs 4.5.5
No 3rd party Mods
Using X Payments
Fast Lane Checkout
Currently using the basic Light and Lucid (3column) theme

As you can see, this is about as basic as it gets. I was hoping someone had a theme that I could just purchase, install and poof, it would be responsive.

Any advice appreciated.

After you upgrade to 4.6 another option you'll have is the built-in Ideal Responsive skin. Then when you upgrade to 4.7 you'll have another option of the new Light Responsive skin.

Thanks for the replies, this really helps to clarify things and gives me the options I was looking for.

Since deadline is already here, we will watch the impact and then plan over the next couple weeks to upgrade the cart. Seems the best option since this cart has no mods, and should be an easy update, plus that way it's more secure and up to date.

I will definitely hire one of the companies here on the forum, the last upgrade through xcart directly was not a good experience at all.

Thanks again for the responses, this forum is best!

Actually you should not base your decision to use responsive design or not (mobile module as well) on the Google search impact on the site. Nowdays if your site is not mobile friendly is not good.

So it is not a question whether google thinks your site is mobile friendly or not - the question is if your site is really mobile friendly. So you need to move to responsive or mobile module, period.

Hi Snowfox,

Here are some live reBOOT sites you can browse. http://www.xcartmods.co.uk/reboot/#tab10

My site is listed at the top so feel free to ask any questions you'd like. I've gone from wanting a separate mobile version (I purchased the x-cart mobile mod) to going with reBOOT responsive template.

Good luck!

Paul

Another option is the Lumino Responsive template.

I love the Fashion theme from The X-Cart Store, but they don't seem to exist anymore. I've put a request to them back in january, never got an answer. Their Facebook page isn't active, they don't respond as well. There's no phone number whatsoever.
Too bad, because it's one of the best looking skins around, but I don't want to pay for a dead skin again (I've had quite a few of these purchases: once purchased there's not a single bit of support or updating).
