Blogging 201, Day Four : Get read all over

I am still far to go on Blogging 201, perhaps four days or more behind.  

Let’s have some fun with me experiencing the wonders of WP and hopefully we will ‘get read all over’.


Today’s assignment: make sure your site is mobile-friendly, and familiarize yourself with the features of responsive design.


Let’s experiment on this.

Instructions below.

Test different sizes right from your computer

You can use the Customizer to “test” your site on different devices — this not only allows you to see how responsive design works, you can also play with options to find the perfect mix that makes you happy on the big screen and the small.

To launch the Customizer, hover over your site’s name in the top-left corner of the screen, and click on Customize. In the panel that opens, you’ll see these three symbols near the bottom:

Here’s the example shown.  Notice the three symbols at the bottom.

From left to right, these represent desktop view, tablet view, and smartphone view. Clicking between them emulates the look of your content on different screens, and you can see what your blog looks like in various sizes.

Go ahead, click on one of them.  What do you see?

Then click on another view.  What changes?

I have shown you mine (see examples above).  

Time to check out yours.   Have fun.
