Can WYSIWYG Web Builder create responsive websites?

*** The information below is outdated, but may still be useful for some users. ***

The idea behind WYSIWYG Web Builder is that you can create websites that look the same no matter on which devices they are displayed.
That is why the software is called What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get Web Builder.
A responsive website is the exact opposite of WYSIWYG web design because your website will look different depending on which platform it is displayed.
But that does not means that you cannot optimize your website for different (mobile) devices!

There are several solutions. For example you can create multiple versions of your pages where each version is optimized for a different target resolution.
You can then use one of the redirect scripts in the 'Ready-to-use-JavaScripts' (available in the toolbox and Insert menu) to redirect the user to the right version of the page.

Another solution is to use a grid-like layout that automatically adjusts to the current screen resolution.
This can be done with the jQuery Masonry extension (http://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com/masonry.html).
Example: http://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com/suppor ... metro.html

It's also possible to use layers to create stretchable layouts.

Note however that this will defeat the whole purpose of the software because you will lose the ability to create layouts that look exactly like you want. And that is why we did create the software in the first place...
