Responsive Web Design

  • Sep 6, 2012 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Web design is constantly evolving. One concept worth adapting is called RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN. It involves designing a website so that its presentation changes depending on the device.


In this meetup we'll explore the strategy of progressive enhancement, giving priority to website accessibility on mobile devices; and then learn how to portray content on varied displays using two techniques: flexible grid and media queries.

    Sorry a little late. I would like to thank Rane and others for responding and sharing their expertise. I don't have a business to develop website. I am just working on my own website and at the moment busy with other priorities of bringing in business; so, I don't have time at the moment to try out the suggestions. When I do I'll share my experiences. I just want to express my appreciation.

    I agree that Backup Buddy is awesome for automating backups of your wordpress website. I do recommend installing BackupBuddy onto your live site.
    However, it does not help the issue at hand, which I understand to be one of duplicating a live website to a production server, and having the links/database/menu (on your production server) to refer to pages on the production server, rather than to the live website. For this, I recommend trying one of the 3 options I described above. You can use (a copy of) the SQL file created by backupbuddy as your source file, instead of exporting it yourself, if u like.

    Sorry, I'll need to pass. I do have a question about saving/exporting the webdesign and importing in another installation of WP. So I don't disturb currently published website and continue revising the next version. I tried exporting/importing SQL database, but the menu was embedded and I don't see how to modify. Is there another way?

    Thanks,

      Finally, I need to ask if you changed the links in your database before you imported it to the new location. When you import the old database to your new development site, you need to change the URL links in the database else they will all point to the live site. You want them to point to an equivalent URL on your test-development site. Be sure to run the query on a COPY of the file you exported, so that if a mistake is made you can start over! Here is a link that will tell you how to update your database. You need to only perform the first three queries listed.. http://myguysolutions...­

      Peter, did you see Gary's reply to my post below?

      To find the notes about his Responsive Design presentation, he said to look at the "Posts" tab in the navbar at http://www.SaratogaMe...­

    Gary, thanks for a great meetup. Especially for all the preparation you put into the presentation. It was very helpful. The group discussions were great, too. Also, a special thanks to Stacey and Rane for the suggestions. I have a lot better idea of what needs to be done to make my sites more responsive. Bryan

    I'm looking forward to coming to this since it is such an important topic. But I have to resolve a scheduling conflict first.
