In this course, author James Fritz shows how to create HTML-based websites with Muse—a toolset familiar to anyone who has used Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. The course covers the design process from start to finish, from setting up web pages and populating them with graphics and text, to creating dynamic menus and adding special features such as widgets, slideshows, animations, embedded video, social media integration, and more. James also explains how to create an alternate layout for display on mobile devices, publish and update your site, and view analytics on web traffic.
Sometimes when you create alternate layouts for smaller devices like a phone, you may make a decision to change the content that is displayed. However, you can make a link back to the main desktop version for visitors who don't mind zooming around the larger page to find the content that they are looking for. I am on the phone version of this website, and you can see we only have four pages of content, but if I switch back to the desktop version, we can see we have quite a few more pages and there is a lot more pictures and text. If I want to provide a link back to the main desktop experience on a phone, it is as easy as creating a hyperlink.
I am going to go to the Homepage and I am just going to grab my Type tool and make a text frame down here. And we are just going to type in Desktop Site, and I will center this. And with this selected, I am just going to add a link back to the desktop site. So going to my Link menu, and inside the Desktop area, I am going to choose the Homepage, because I want this to be a link back to the Homepage on the Desktop site. Next, I will grab this and just align this to the center of the page. That looks pretty good! And if I want to check this out, all I have to do is publish this and then look at it on a mobile device.
So let's take a look at this on a mobile device. I am on my mobile device right now and as I tap to each page, we can see we are completely on the phone version of the page. But if I want to go back to the main full site, I will just click on Desktop Site. Now, I am back to the main desktop site, but I am going to have to pinch to zoom to read everything that is on here. Once you click on a link to visit the desktop site, you do not have to worry about being sent back to the mobile site. Muse is smart enough to lock the code to that specific version of the website while you are browsing.
If you want to go back to the mobile version, you would have to close the browser and reopen it and type in that URL or put a link in on the main site to the mobile site.
