With your new WordPress Responsive/Adaptive website, top of mind should be ‘how will this present on mobile view’. The use of tables, tabbed or spaced links on a single row, multiple image without a gallery (which will not render well on mobile) should be used very little, if at all.
Content information: Less is more when it comes to styling.
The use of tables in a responsive/adaptive website should be used sparingly, but if the need to use a table to organize information is present, a maximum of two columns should be used. With mobile view display, a table not formatted correctly for width, or having too many columns, will result in any columns past the 2nd one, not being seen.
Should be done minimally, if at all. On PC view, centering might look OK, but once you get to mobile view, the content display might not have the effect you were hoping for. Images are automatically resized, content is automatically shifted to accommodate the device resolution. You should never use your ‘space bar’ to separate text links, etc. This will result in displaying your content/images in an unruly manner for tablet or mobile view.
The style sheet of the website has been set to give you preset styles for Headers, titles and text. Modifying content to use a different color for text blocks is not necessary. Consistency of website content works best for visitors, and will help eliminate issues that could arise if HTML tags for colors or font style is used, but a users device does not display that HTML tag properly.
Copy Plain Text
Always copy content in as plain text, to avoid/eliminate issues that will come up if content is pasted directly from a word document or another web page. If you are comfortable viewing HTML to troubleshoot why something isn’t outputting correctly, the “Text” tab at the top of the content box in admin will show you the HTML view.
A separate user account should be setup for anyone that has been given permission to manage/edit the website. Users will be created by Gaslight Media on the clients behalf, to ensure that proper permissions are given for that user, and that no disruptions are created in the admin area by a user that does not know how to set the permissions correctly.
To create a new user, please provide Gaslight Media with:
- User Name
- Email Address
- First/Last Name
- Permission levels: What areas of the website is this user allowed to make changes, edits or additions?
