    Previously I have a “Notable” theme on my Blog. It looks good on the mobile view, but I want to change the blogger view, so I have used a “Dynamic” theme, but this ruins my mobile view. If you can even help me change only my mobile view to the “Notable” theme, I am even okay with it.
    Please, Sir, help me, please……
