Re: seperate website for phone

Seems to be okay while viewing on my Samsung. Only white space I saw was briefly across the screen which looked more like a large image loading, probably the cake. Other than that works fine. Tried on Firefox mobile and Chrome mobile.

Re: Use of Layers

I use layers based on past experience with previous software and was all I knew when faced with re-writing my web site when I first came to Web Builder then again when re-writing to accommodate mobiles and tablets. I have to admit when flex options was introduced I simply thought I'm past learning y...

Re: Designing for mobile users

Yes, couldn't believe it was so low. I'm a fan of FF and have it both desktop and mobile. Can't understand that. To me it has far less issues than the others.

Re: Designing for mobile users

You think there may be a trend there?!
Looks like a lot of people don't like moving their mobiles to landscape either. Interesting stats, thanks.

Re: Designing for mobile users

A final comment on this subject.
My Partner recently acquired a Galaxy Tab A 10.1 inch tablet and this subject led me to check our web site on it, Silly me! I now realise I should have done the 980 break point to cover tablets in portrait mode.
Guess you know what my new project is?

Re: Designing for mobile users

Hi Alan - had a look at video. That's a good start up guide. I wish I had managed to get the Master page thing right when I tackled my project but for some reason never got it to work. Probably my frustration at the time and with so many pages to do and faced with doing break points for each. I thin...

Re: Designing for mobile users

Yep, I resisted for a couple of years then realized I had to bite the bullet and go with the flow, a frustrating but interesting exercise.

Re: Designing for mobile users

You have so many choices these days. I chose to use break points. My default / desktop size was 1250 then I chose 768, 480 and 320. Since finishing I wish I had chosen a higher minimum of around 380 rather than 320 as most modern mobiles are wider. I found most of the test mobiles I tried defaulted ...

I added the following code to the bottom of file then saved / Applied changes. Has worked ever since. RewriteE...

Re: Photocollage, when set to fancybox, doesn't display arrows left or right

Hi Guys, This is a known issue in various versions of fancybox and Web Builder uses, if I remember rightly, V1.2,. You need to add some css into your <head> section under Page, html. <style type="text/css"> span#fancy_left_ico {left: 20px;} span#fancy_right_ico {right: 20px;} </style> The css varies...

Re: WB15 New Installation Problem

Just a note to our Win XP friend. Microsoft is still offering a free upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10. I've just started up a new system using the 64 bit Win 10 as a new installation waiting till after installation to activate it. Just found my old Win 7 serial and used that and system was activated.

Re: Slide show doesn't seem to look at rotation flag - on some pics

Sometimes you're better to fix these issues at the source. use an image program that will show the image as it is. A lot of image viewers auto rotate. Surprisingly I used the win 10 photo program and was able to fix and save. Make sure you redo the image selection in the work space else nothing will...

Re: Spell Check

Don't leave the upgrade too long. Support for Win 7 is fast disappearing. I've never regretted going to Win 10 despite all the negativity around it, and with an old computer. Still going strong. As far as I'm aware the free upgrade is still available either using your Win 7 code or through the Micro...
