About Responsive Weebly Templates

Website Responsiveness is still relatively new in the world of web design, but thing have come a long way over the past few years.

A responsive Weebly template will respond accordingly to the size of the screen that it is being viewed on (EG: a Large monitor, a laptop screen, a phone, a tablet etc). Up until the past few years, anyone viewing a website on a mobile device such as a phone or tablet has been faced with either the “desktop” version of the website or a heavily cut down version of the website known as the “mobile” version.

Desktop Version

PROS
  • Shows All content on the page including images, text, links etc.
  • Allows you to use All functionality within the site.

CONS
  • Difficult to read – you need to zoom in and scroll around to see each part of the site.
  • Doesn’t change the layout in any way, so difficult to navigate.

Mobile Version

PROS
  • Loads faster.
  • Easier to read.

CONS
  • Means the person creating the website has to configure (and in some cases) rebuild a mobile specific website.
  • Generally only shows certain content, meaning some information could be missing (widgets).
  • Images generally aren’t shown.
  • Doesn’t have any of the “style” of the desktop site.

A responsive Weebly template does things differently. By using something called “Media Queries” it tells the page how to respond based on the size of the screen (or browser).

For Example: If you have an image that displays at 500x500px on a normal screen. A media query can tell the page to display that image at 100x100px if it is being viewed on a screen that is on a screen 320px (width of an iphone 5 screen).

The good thing about responsiveness is the behavior of the content in your page can be adjusted for multiple screen sizes, and can react differently to each one. It isn’t just restricted to size, but also can control the layout of your page and where things are positioned or even if they should be displayed at all.

Although there are still some challenges with responsiveness in the world of web design, one of the biggest being even if you hide content/images etc for certain screen sizes your device still has to load the entire page causing potential issues with loading the page.

EG: You have an image on your page that is hidden on smaller screens, even when loading that page on your mobile phone, it will load the image and be told to ignore it

It is however, in today’s day and age of technical breakthrough, much less of an issue as the speed of mobile devices internet connection is generally quite fast.
