That is a mouthful of a title but luckily this is a simple fix for an annoying bug in SharePoint 2013.

While an ETA continues to be dodged for this juicy addition for SharePoint on-premises and SharePoint Online, we can play Miracle Max and do it ourselves. Yes really. At the end of the day, it is just CSS. That we can do. Continue reading Making seattle.master Responsive
