1: Develop a Responsive Website with No JavaScript, No jQuery, No Media Queries.

I know what you are thinking...

It cannot be achieved.

I have about 70 websites currently on the Internet showing you it can be achieved or should I say, I have done it No Media Queries, No JavaScript, No jQuery.

By the way you are now reading one of those 70 websites.

Don't believe me, if you are looking at this page on a Desktop or Laptop right click this page and select "view page source" and have a look at the code.

See no JavaScript or jQuery or Media Queries
just html 5, php and css3.

If you do not have a Mobile Smart Phone with you, you can test this page or any page on the Internet to see if the page is Responsive.

How...

Place your mouse on the left or right side border of the Web Browser you are using to view this page then drag in, this makes the Browser Window smaller in width, and watch how everything moves if the page is Responsive or does not move if the page is not Responsive.

Once you get to the point of being 320 pixels wide (the smallest width Mobile Screen) you will see this Website still looks the same as before you made the width smaller.

You maybe wondering how will I know when my Browser Window is about 320px wide.

That's easy, below is our Company logo that is 290 pixels wide, this will allow you to guess 320 pixels wide.

As we are not selling a product this Website does not contain many pictures unless you scroll down to near the end of this page then make this page smaller in width.

Go ahead test this site but two better sites to test are as follows because they have a lot of pictures on most pages.

Note: Both the following links open in a new window.

wheelclamp.com.au - the first Responsive Website we developed in August 2014. You will see the main menu does not disappear when you get to about 450 pixels wide like most other Responsive websites, more details below, the main menu is exactly the same on every size screen.

OR

hide-away-safe.com - this site has a sub-menu on the right side on each main page. You will see the main menu and sub-menu do not disappear when you get to about 450 pixels wide like most other Responsive websites, they are exactly the same on every size screen.

Following are two screen shots of: wheelclamp.com.au

We have achieved this with:

NO JavaScript
NO jQuery
NO Media Queries.
All desktops, laptops and
Apple iPads or other tablets
with a screen 700px and wider.
How wheelclamp.com.au is viewed on all desktops, laptops and Apple iPad or other tablets.
All Mobile phones 320px wide.How wheelclamp.com.au is viewed on all mobile phones 320px wide.

Continues in number 10 below...

2: Brief history.

In January 1994 when I owned a manufacturing and export business I read an article about the Internet. During the next few weeks I read more articles and thought this could be a great idea for my company to promote the products we have been selling in America and European countries since late 1990.

My company's factory and office was and still is in Perth, Western Australia. From my research in 1994 there were only two companies in Perth, Western Australia both set up in late 1993 to develop websites. I contacted both but one wanted $10,000 and the other $8,500 basically to walk into their offices to discuss my requirements.

I am not joking $10,000 and $8,500 to talk to them.

I thought how hard can it be, I have been using a computer for a number of years so I checked there was no night school to teach Web Development. So I went into Perth to look round the four large book shops to see if there were any books on Web Development, you know the type Web Development in 24 hours. The first three Book Shops did not have any books but the forth one said they have a few, I looked through them and bought one.

I started to read this 498 page book on the train going home, after some trial and error I built my first Website and used it until June 30, 2001 when I closed that business. In July 2001 I started new Web Development business and named it Private House Sale.

Skip to today I am still:

I did say brief history...

3: April 21, 2015 - the day Google changed the Internet.

April 21, 2015 will go down in the Internet history books as the official day Google's new algorithm become a reality. Some say it was a good day but for millions of Website owners it was the day if they replied on traffic from Mobile searches April 21, 2015 was the day they start to lose business until their Website is Mobile friendly.

4: What if your Website is not Mobile friendly.

On April 21, 2105, the day Google said if you don't have a mobile friendly Website you wont be listed in searches from a Mobile Phone.

Don't listen to everything you read (yes I did mean to say that), some of the articles I have read want you to believe the World was going to end on April 21, 2105. Google had been hinting about this update for over 12 months but sometime in early March 2015 they set a date this update would happen or in fact start to roll out world-wide.

The World has not collapse...

We are still here...

All this update means is, if your Website is not Mobile friendly it will not show up on a search from a Mobile Phone but you will not lose your current search engine rankings when someone searches from a Desktop or Laptop or Tablet. Again not the end of the World but you may lose some business by not having a Responsive Website.

5: Responsive Website good or bad.

One Website for every screen width including ones that have not been developed yet.

This has to be a big benefit for businesses...

Back in 1988 from memory my first Computer screen was the latest 640 pixels wide, skip forward to 2015 you or I can buy a screen with a resolution of 2560 pixels wide, who knows what's coming next.

I cannot speak for other web developers but in 2002 when the average screen was 800 pixels wide I developed websites at a fixed width of 780 pixels wide. When the 1024 pixel wide screen came out all the websites I developed were still viewable and looked great.

I am not 100% sure as I do not remember and as there is so much conflicting information on the Internet lets say the modern Smart Phone with most of the bells and whistle of today's (March 2015) have been sold since about mid 2013.

So the question is...

Should you have a Responsive Website.

The simple answer is: YES

Why...

Please keep reading.

But there is no need to rush out tomorrow and have a Web Developer change your Site to be Responsive. Who knows how many businesses to date have changed their Website to a Responsive Website.

The majority of the Responsive Websites I have seen just done work properly, they maybe Responsive but what is the point of a Responsive Website if the whole Website does not work like a normal Desktop Site does since the first modern Web Browser back in early 1993.

A Responsive Website is how all websites should be developed now and probably until 2020 - 2025, after that who knows what the Internet will be, therefor if you decide to have a Responsive Website it needs to be developed correctly and look and work the same as when the same Website is viewed on a Desktop, Laptop or Tablet and developed with:

No JavaScript
No jQuery
No Media Queries

just html 5, php and css3.

As we have done with this Website and about 70 other websites we have developed since March 2014.

6: Google has said a Responsive Website is the better solution.

As a Web Developer since 1994 initially I thought a Responsive Website was a bad idea but I changed my mind.

Why...

In March 2014 after nearly a year of reading articles about a Responsive Website and looking at sites that have been changed to be Responsive I changed my mind for a number of reasons, the main one:

One Website viewable on every width screen available now and in the future, every web developers dream.

But and there is always a BUT, like every new idea their are always unforeseen problems.

Interested please keep reading...

7: Responsive Website with no JavaScript, no jQuery, no Media Queries that looks and work as being viewed on a Desktop or Laptop will future proof your Website.

Back in the days when you could build a Website at a fixed width of say 780 pixels wide and know when the next wider screen came out the 780 pixel wide Website would still work, in my case all the websites I developed did. Even with the modern 2560 pixels wide screen all the websites I created between 1994 to November 2013 will still work.

But here's the problem we are face with now...

The smallest screen resolution we've had to deal with from mid 2013 and probably still will until 2020, maybe longer, is 320 pixels wide. So all my 780 pixel wide sites will open on a 320 pixels wide Mobile Screen scaled down to fit making the text so small it is practically un-readable. You can zoom out to make the text bigger but it would take forever to read one page and people won't do that, some may but most people won't, they will leave and go to another Site.

This is why since about January 2012 businesses who wanted their Site to be readable on a 320 pixels wide Mobile Screen had two sites, one for the Desktop / Laptop and an "M Site" for the a 320 pixels wide Mobile Screen.

This was never a good idea but it was the only method but it caused too many problems the worst three were:

A Mobile only Website was just a stop gap until someone came up with a better solution.

8: Problems I have seen with Responsive websites built with computer generated code.

Some Responsive websites I have seen do work but a lot I have seen don't compared to the same Website when viewed on a Desktop, Laptop or a Tablet, some of the problems when the Website is viewed on a Mobile Phone include.

There are also other problems not mensioned.

9: Why are there problems with a lot of Responsive websites.

If you want to rely on a program to produce computer generated html / php / css / JavaScript / jQuery and what ever other code the program writes to develop a Responsive Website there are programs available.

I am not stating the names of these programs, for obvious reasons, but I will state some of the problems I have seen on websites using one or more of these programs that generated the html / php / JavaScript / jQuery code:

I could list many more problems but I won't as my point is, you should not reply a program written by hundreds if not thousands of individuals who write plugins that are suppose to make creating content for a Website easier and quicker than witting the code by hand but have the opportunity to include compromising code in the plugins for their our malicious purposes.

10: If a Responsive Website is the future of Web Development is there a better method to develop one than is being used by about 99.6% of all Responsive websites created to date.

YES THERE IS

Continues from number one near the top of this page.

The initial cost from a Web Developer to develop the same Responsive Website hand coded would be 15% - 25% more than using one of the Computer programs to generate the computer code.

If your Website was developed by the same method as this Website and the other about 70 Responsive websites we have created since March 2014 the cost saving for you come later and include the following benefits:

11: We know what some people, well in fact a lot of people's first reaction will be after reading the above.

A Responsive Website cannot be developed without JavaScript, jQuery or Media Queries or other scripting languages.

My reply...

It Can

This Site proves it.

Plus the other about 70 websites we have developed to be a Responsive Website since March 2014.
