Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Media queries, part of WordPress and Genesis: Building Child Themes from Scratch.
- Media Queries are those delightful bits of CSS…that enables us to create a responsive web design.…You can use breakpoints to determine exactly…how your site will look on various screen sizes.…You may have noticed I haven't added any Media Queries…to the theme I've built in this course.…And that's because this course isn't meant to teach CSS…but rather the concept of building…a Genesis child theme from scratch.…That said, a responsive theme…which makes for a responsive website is no longer…just a nice thing to have, it's an expectation.…
If you're providing professional theme development services,…you want to be sure you're using Media Queries…to create a responsive site.…If working with Media Queries is something you'd like…to learn more about, I recommend…the Applied Responsive Design course with James Williamson.…
