Often times when I preview a post or when I’ve clicked through to my site from Instagram, the image appears to be magnified ,extending offscreen and ‘slips’ when I try to scroll through. I wait for the image to adjust but it doesn’t. I am using my iPad mini.
I do click the ‘website’, ‘tablet’ and ‘mobile’ options and the mobile option is the most reliable. If I’m having problems then chances are my viewers are too.
Thank you in advance for your help.The blog I need help with is maggiewinnall.wordpress.com
My site is http://www.sewinstudio.comJuly 5, 2018 at 2:00 pm #164629
Hi there – I see the issue.
It looks like you’ve set up what’s called “framed” or “masked” domain forwarding at your domain registrar, which looks like GoDaddy. You’ve set http://www.sewinstudio.com to forward to http://maggiewinnall.wordpress.com. Using framed/masked forwarding breaks the theme’s responsiveness, so your site is no longer able to adjust automatically to different screen sizes, as it should normally.
Since you have a Premium plan on maggiewinnall.wordpress.com, the solution to this would be to (1) remove the domain forwarding at GoDaddy, and then (2) map the domain to your WordPress.com site. This wouldn’t cost anything extra, as it’s included in your plan.
Follow this guide to mapping your domain: https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/
Also just a heads-up that since your site has a Premium plan, you’re entitled to live-chat and email support, accessible here:
You’re welcome to still post in these forums, but those other support avenues may be faster, and you’ll always get a staff reply.
Feel free to reach out there if you need any help mapping your domain.
Once your domain is mapped instead of forwarded via GoDaddy, the issue should be fixed.July 5, 2018 at 4:44 pm #164630

As another tip, you can set your sewinstudio.com domain as the site’s primary domain so it’s what visitors see in the address bar by following the guide here:
