Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Using content blocks, part of Mapping the Modern Web Design Process.
- If you look at any website, you'll see…it's really just a collection of different blocks…of content displayed together on the screen.…You have the Header, the Sidebar, the Footer,…and the Main Content area.…Within each of these blocks, you may find…several smaller blocks.…In the Header, you have the Site Title and the Main Menu.…In the Sidebar and Footer, you may have multiple blocks…including Advertising, Navigation, and Content Links.…And in the Main Content area, you'll find Article blocks…each containing Title and article meta, the actual article,…and interactive elements like Social Media…sharing buttons and comments.…
This is also how the browser sees the content.…To the browser, the contents within a tag…are considered blocks, usually displayed within a box.…CSS is then applied to that box and the content within it.…If you move the box, the styles follow automatically.…When I spoke of approaching responsive web design…as a process, I said that we should always work to display…the content in the best possible way.…
