It’s 2017 and the days of rotary phones, dial-up internet and desktop-only website access are pretty much a thing of the past. Consumers these days are on the go and taking their favorite websites with them. From cafe’s to libraries to walking down the street, people are accessing the internet on mobile devices in increasing numbers. What does this mean for you, the community builder?
Today’s websites need to deliver content to devices with varying screen dimensions. They need to be accessible on wide screen devices, notebooks, tablets and smartphones just to name a few. If visitors and members are unable to fully experience a website on their device of choice, they’ll quickly go elsewhere as the web is a plethora of competitive sites all vying for viewership.
No worries though! SocialEngine has the tools to make sure your mobile users are not turned off and instead, tuned in and stay tuned in. On tap for our 4.9.0 release, coming very soon, is a new “responsive” theme, Insignia. What is a “responsive” theme? In layman’s terms, a “responsive” theme is a theme that automatically resizes based on the dimensions of the viewer’s screen. This makes it so that a user with a 42” screen and a user with a 3” screen can view the site without any issues at all. It will look a little different on each screen as some features shift for smaller views, or open for larger views, but the features are easily accessed on any screen.
