Hi everyone!

I’m building my first Webflow website and I got stuck with this issue - about sizing and position. Any idea how to fix it so when you have smaller screen the content is adjusting?

I’m still learning and kinda making the color background messes my mind with that!

I’d really appreciate your help or any advice!

Hi @Paulina_F :wave:

Welcome to the Webflow Community!

:clap: Brava for building your first Website.

I took a look at your site and I see the issue with sizing and positing: It’s to do with the use of EM units for element width and relative positioning.

When it comes to responsive design, using the right units and styles will make your design responsive by default on all devices and will require minor tweaks on smaller devices.

Less is More. In general, if you see that you need to make a lot of changes on smaller devices to make sure page responsive, it means you need to fix the design on the desktop first.

Here’s a ~10min video where I show you how to fix some of the issues on your site:

I highly encourage you to check out the following resources and Webflow University to learn the best practices of responsive design:

All the best!

Hi Anna!

I’m sorry for bothering you,
I have almost finished my website, but I just realize, that some parts don’t work as they should be, when I publish the website on mobile and tablet the icons start moving down, even when in the editor on my PC it looks fine :frowning:
Any ideas what am I doing wrong? (cuz I’m sure I am doing something wrong :see_no_evil:)
I’d be grateful for any advice! :white_heart:

Hi Paulina!

I am loving your site! It looks amazing! You did it! :muscle:

As for the icons issue. I wasn’t able to see the issue on my phone. Were you able to fix it? If not, can you please tell me a little more about the issue so I can help you resolve it?

  • On which page are you observing the issue?
  • Which icon or icons are you moving when they shouldn’t?
  • Can you share a video of the issue? [Apple] [Android]

Any information you provide, can help me help you resolve the issue.

My best,
Anna

Hi Anna :wave:t2:

Thank you so much for your reply and your kind words! :white_heart:

Yea I fixed the issue with icons, I was digging into why I had this problem and I solved it, it was because of the wrong alignment :see_no_evil:

I think I still have some issues there on my website, I don’t know why the navbar icons on the homepage are differently aligned compare to other pages. I’ve already launched my website so please feel free to explore in the browser and I’d be really grateful for your feedback and things I could improve :white_heart:

I’d be grateful for any advice :white_heart:

Best regards,

Hi again Paulina :wave:

I’m so happy that you’re learning super fast and you’ve launched your website already! :tada:

That navbar was tricky, but I found the issue. It’s a styling on the current state of the brand link within the navbar.

I explain more in this video:

Woohoo! Go, @Paulina_F! So thrilled to follow along here — digging your site’s design from the color scheme to the interactions. Huge props to @AnnaKelian for jumping in and giving such clear guidance here, too — one of my favorite people (and most knowledgeable!). Keep up the great work, @Paulina_F! :clap:

Paulina, it was all you!

It started with you posting here, on the forum. You didn’t give up. Your willingness to complete this project and to learn allowed you to take my advice and instructions and turn them into a beautiful creation of your own.

Keep learning! Keep asking for guidance! And you’ll excel in anything you do.

It was my pleasure to help you launch your site. :white_heart:
