Responsive Web Design
These website templates are mobile-friendly, or responsive. In other words, the site creates a seamless and attractive user experience across all devices (mobile, desktop, tablet). But what does that really mean, and how does it affect how you manage your website?
The new website templates utilize a number of content types that have been designed specifically for the Brandeis website. In responsive design, content needs to adjust (rearrange and stack) depending on the screen size. This ability to rearrange is very important for the responsiveness of the site, and for this reason, it's best to use the appropriate content type when building your site. This will ensure your content is formatted and aligned optimally for responsiveness. In other words, you may be able to build a table in a regular WYSIWYG editor, but it will not be responsive, so you need to create it using the Table content type.
In these web templates, images size requirements are based on the content type. It is important to upload images at the specified size, so they appear optimally on any screen size or device.
