I started a new job and inherited an asp.net website. I know HTML but this is new ground and my learning curve is slow, as I have zero resources at work (no one knows anything about websites). Our website is old and outdated, but has a ton of info/pages
on it. What I would like to know if it is possible to get or build a responsive master page, then replace the current master, so that I do not have to re-create the whole website. This way, all of the specific pages will update to the new style. I am trying
to avoid creating a whole new website, just change the look/layout of the site template master. Does that make sense?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I should clarify that I have figured some of this "new way" of creating websites out. I have created new pages and understand the "code behind" a bit. Just can't seem to figure out how to change this site over to a responsive site.

For a responsive site, all the CSS for all the elements on the page have to be consistent with being responsive. That site has a lot of in-line CSS in the content area, and at least a few tables. You have to deal with all the content, not just the master
page, when making a site responsive.

Your site has all static contents , plus it has inline styles which has made the site a mess , to deal with and transform it into a better one you need to work a new master page as your present site's each page has its own inline styles which makes it difficult
to transform as a whole , you either need to work intensively on each page or you need to redesign the whole page.

You could put consistent parts (such as top and left menu) in your master page, besides, you could refer to this tutorial to make your web site responsive.
