Join Paul Trani for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a layout that fits all browsers, part of Creating a First Web Site with Dreamweaver CS6.
A recent movement that's going on in the web today's what is called a responsive…design, and that's having your content respond based on the browser window size…as well as even the device you view your content on.…So say for instance, if I scaled down this browser window, you can see that…everything is static.…So if you're viewing this on a smaller monitor, the user would actually have to…scroll, so that's not very usable.…What if they're on an iPad that's more like this? Well, again, you have the same…issue where they're going to have to scroll, and it gets even worse as we go down…to even a mobile device.…
So we need to make sure our content is flexible and responds based on the…browser window size. So that's what I'm going to do.…I'm going to start off first with this Nav bar. With that Nav bar selected, notice…right down here, all of these sizes and positions are fixed.…So they're fixed sizes and positions.…And what I can do is I can say, hey, you know what?
