  17. Hi great video!! So I was using the Sydney Theme for about 2 weeks, I upgraded something, I think the toolbar, everything disappeared, so I went back to the previous version, and everything came back, however my home page images aren’t responsive, they get smaller when you go to a table or mobile. So I was hoping the child theme would fix it, however it won’t install. Now my plan is to uninstall Sydney, and reinstall, both child theme and Sydney, but I’m afraid everything will get screwed up? Please help. I’m also thinking of using another theme, if I can’t figure out how to get this theme to be responsive to mobil and tablet?
