The term “responsive” is everywhere these days in the world of web design. But this term is more than just a buzzword. It represents an entire shift in the way of thinking about how to build and display sites.
Responsive web design is an idea that’s been around since 2010 when Ethan Marcott, in an article for A List Apart, first came up with the term. Only three years later, Mashable has called 2013 The Year of Responsive Design and it has become the industry norm. Before you get to how important responsive design is, you need to understand what it means.
Responsive design simply means is that content is displayed slightly differently depending on the size of the screen. Smaller screens, such as smartphones, have the content displayed in a way to make it easy to read and easy to navigate using touch controls. Some content that could require a lot of bandwidth to download may be left out. Medium sized screens, such as tablets, might rearrange things a bit and allow for a few more things to be included on the page. Desktop sized screens used to be the norm, and many sites continue to be focused on this type of display. But even desktops are not a one-size-fits all since displays can vary in size and resolution. And what about multiple monitors? Not to mention things like large screen TVs! You need too plan your design so that your website adapts to any device – irrespective of its screen size or resolution.
A Responsive Theme is one that adapts to all mobile devices and desktops – and modifies elements based on the resolution of the screen. For example, certain images might be hidden if the device is too small to show them. At times, the menu of a website looks different or collapses automatically on small phones.
To design a website to be responsive takes some planning and decision making up front. The best approach is a “mobile first” approach where you start with the content and then determine how to best display it when sized for the smallest screens. Next is to choose breakpoints (defined largely by the width of the display) where the design will change, and then adjust the site layout at that point. With each larger breakpoint new content can be added or rearranged to best fill the available space. Here’s a handy responsive design checklist – full of tips for those of you just starting out.
Responsive design is an absolute must at this point and should be something you look for when choosing a theme.
The good news is that all of CyberChimps WordPress themes are built this way. CyberChimps’ Responsive theme itself is a great example. When browsing through WordPress Themes, responsive design is super-important and is an absolute necessity.
