Are You Creating Responsive Websites?


#1

This article says you're not.

Perhaps Webflow Staff can add more clarity.

I don't actually agree everything this article says...
but maybe you can learn something from it. I did.

For those who have been telling your clients you create "Responsive Websites"...

perhaps you should read the full article (link provided below):

[Snip from the article]

Responsive websites respond to the size of the browser at any given point.

No matter what the browser width may be, the site adjusts its layout (and perhaps functionality) in a way that is optimized to the screen. Is the browser 300px wide or 30000px wide? It doesn't matter because the layout will respond accordingly. Well, at least if it's done correctly!

[Snip from the article]

Adaptive websites adapt to the width of the browser at a specific points.

In other words, the website is only concerned about the browser being a specific width, at which point it adapts the layout.

I agree with the two snippets.

With Webflow, you're kind of making both. :wink:

Plus, using WVs WHs REMs EMs and other fluid measurements will help your sites be more responsive than adaptive.

I provided a lengthy answer to this question on an closed thread.
