Lines of text overlap and it's unreadable. Not mobile friendly at all.

Hi there macarman7792
At this point, the builder you are using isn't mobile friendly, and the option we used to have (Dudamobile) doesn't work to get sites mobile responsive anymore. What you would need to do is rebuild your site in our newer builder, Website Builder. This builder has a mobile option in the builder to get your site responsive. If this isn't something you can do or have time to do, I can have a member of our design team call you. Just let me know.

I have the same problem. Looks fine on desktop, but overlaps on mobile.  
HOw do I switch to Website Builder? How do I know if I am even using it?
Please advise.

Hello mark adams

It does not look like you are currently using Website Builder, but if you create a new site from Websites Manager in your Homestead account, and create a new site, it will automatically be created in this newer builder and you'll be able to builder your desktop and mobile friendly site.
Once you are finished building your site, you can switch your domain name over.

So...I gather that means I cannot just move the pages to the new Builder, but must start from scratch. I also don't have a domain name associated with the site I'm referring to (I use nameofsite.homestead.com as the URL), so I would have to change the name of the site. Not worth the effort...I find if I make changes and publish on the desktop, I look at it on the mobile and change it accordingly.  It's work, but easier than doing the site all over and, particularly, changing the site's name, which is already printed on business cards, etc. Thanks for the reply.

Yes, it would mean changing the site name, so I do understand not wanting to change that.
