I am a veteran Freeway user though I’ll confess I’m very rusty. I’ve been playing with FW7 to make a smartphone compatible site but the site goes splat with elements ending up randomly all over the place (in particular the navbg.gif images which should be section dividers), plus text gets cut off. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong-- I set it up the way I’ve set up lots of other sites in the past, but the problem persists. Here’s a link to the file (in a zip archive): http://www.blue-iceberg.net/rc/bimobilesite.zip
Would somebody be kind enough to take a look and let me know what’s happening here?
You need to be looking at ‘Inline’ or ‘Box Model’ construction to start off with to make your site responsive. Loads of discussions about it on here.
Some useful links on here https://users.softpress.com/keith/box_model_tutorial/
The video tutorials by Thomas Kimmich are extremely helpful.
Hi Noel, I’m not interested in making this one responsive. I’m trying to create one long HTML page 320 px wide. I would redirect smartphones from the regular site to that. In older versions of Freeway I could just lay things out in a WYSIWYG fashion and it would output the HTML and CSS to do it. That’s not happening here. I’m trying to figure out why. I’ll take a look at the box model info but I’m just interested in doing that. Any pointers on how to achieve that would be appreciated. Thanks.
Redirect means from one page (index.html) to another (m.index.html or so).
So getting this to work, I suppose you need to remove all breakpoints (in the edit → media (types)?) so you have just the default. The rest should be the same as it happened in lower FW versions.
But it’s just a guess cause I never did the redirect route.
Redirect is in my universe only legit when content is different on both pages. If not you create “duplicated content” and I’m not sure if the queen (google) is amused. It is, btw. one (of a couple), but perhaps the prime argument for responsive features.
