Responsive site

Post by RonJ » Mon Jul 29, 2019 3:19 pm

As a long time user of WWB, presently WWB 14, I have been very happy with it until I tried to make my site responsive. Nothing but grief. To the point that I am changing to a GoDaddy product which automatically makes my input responsive but I am not at all happy with using the GoDaddy product when compared to WWB which is an excellent and superior product.

Is there any chance that WWB15 turns out a responsive web site automatically?

Thanks, RonJ

First note that this has nothing to do with WWB, it is related to the layout mode you have chosen.

When you use 'absolute/fixed layout mode' then it is not possible to make the layout responsive automatically because there is no structure in the layout (you can place objects randomly anywhere) so there is no way for the software to know what you want your layout to look like on smaller screens. Although in WWB15 you can automatically scale new objects in breakpoints.
When you use 'flexible layout mode' (layout grids/flexbox) then the layout will be responsive by design.
