Responsive Web Design

Almost all websites are responsive nowadays. The few that aren’t either have a different layout when accessed on a mobile device, or are very old in internet years.

What is a Responsive Web Site?

A responsive web site adapts to the user’s screen, whether it’s a smartphone, a tablet or a desktop computer. Menus and page layout change, depending on whether the screen is large or small.

A responsive website works on touch screens. Links and buttons are big enough for fingers to take users where they want to go.

Should I have a responsive website?

Absolutely. More and more people are accessing the internet on smartphones.

What is a responsive website like?

Try out this one. Change the size of your browser window and see what happens.

This website adjusts to the width of the browser window, up to a particular maximum. At smaller widths, the sidebars, if there are any, move to the bottom or disappear. The menu collapses to one button which expands when you tap or click it.

WordPress themes are now responsive right out of the box.

You can even edit a WordPress website from your smartphone.
