Responsive web design is a development process that results in fluid web layouts that change based on a users screen resolution.
The concept came about to address the ever-changing landscape of screen sizes, devices and browsers and to allow desktop versions to be viewed particularly in mobile scenarios.
Essentially, a website’s structure would be changed using CSS Media Queries that would adapt the layout to suit the most common screen resolutions for desktop, tablet and mobile.
Integrating a responsive design into a big CMS like Sitefinity would be extremely difficult due to their templating structure unless you restricted the freedom Sitefinity 4 + offers with their flexible layout system by creating pre-defined content areas based on a grid layout.
Fortunately, Sitefinity have released a Mobile Web Module for Sitefinity 5.x that employs cutting edge responsive design techniques that allow the same templates to be used for desktop down to mobile resolutions.
The release makes it even easier for us to create responsive websites for our clients where the content for both traditional web and mobile experiences can be managed within the same environment.
The alternative to creating the site with a responsive layout is to allow Sitefinity to redirect to a dedicated mobile page that has been created specifically for mobile devices.
