How to build a responsive website? – part 2

Published on April 6, 2012 by in Web design

In part 1, we already learned how to redirect, using PHP or .htaccess. In this article, we’ll use CSS media queries. When you use CSS media queries, you can use just one HTML-page and connect this file to several CSS-files. For each device, you can create a different CSS-file. The media query will decide which file has to be loaded.

Example: we put our general layout in style.css. This file has to be loaded in all cases:

1
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" media="all" />

We want iphone.css to be loaded on an iPhone:

1
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="iphone.css" media="screen and (min-device-width: 480px)" />

An iPhone 4S has two screen resolutions: 320×480 (portrait) and 480×320 (landscape).

‘min-device-width’ and ‘max-device-width’ will detect the screen width. It will only by new browsers detected. Luckily for us, smartphones generaly are already equiped with the new generation of browsers.

min-width’ will detect the browser width (not the screen width!)

only‘ hides the style sheet for older browsers. It’s possible to make a combination with “and”. Eg:

1
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="780.css" media="only screen and (max-width: 780px)" />

Finally, it’s possible to detect the orientation of the mobile device (landscape/portrait):

1
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/1000.css" media="orientation: landscape" />

This might be a good example to end this tutorial:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" media="all" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="smartphone.css" media="only screen and (max-width: 480px)" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="tablet.css" media="(minwidth: 481px) and (max-width: 959px)" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="desktop.css" media="only screen and (min-width: 960px)" />

Every article on this site is for free. Any comments or likes/follows would be nice!

How to hack a website?

Published on April 1, 2012 by in Web design

Is this article legal? ;-)

I’m not trying to move people to hack. But by explaining how hackers get started, I might help you to protect your website against them.

First of all: a web server is protected by a username and password. When somebody knows these secret words, they can break into your files and database. Make sure you have a strong password. Don’t use usernames like “admin”. When you note your site is hacked, first thing you should to is change your password. Read more…
