From your Joomla administration navigate to Extensions -> Template Manager -> J51_[YourTemplate] -> Responsive Options, here you will find a number of toggle switches to turn on/off each set of modules. If there is a situation where you would sooner your site to display the same on all devices then not to worry as we have added an option here to do that to (“,).
