How to develop a responsive website with no jQuery, just html and a few php tags.

I know what you are thinking...

If you know anything about web development you will say:

It cannot be done.

As of today July 19, 2019 I manage about 80 websites.

You are now reading one of those 80 websites that are:

Plus...

What is a hamburger menu...

The hamburger menu is the menu icon found on websites in newer programs such as WordPress that hides the traditional file menu.

A hamburger menu...

is your
current website responsive

How to check if a web page is responsive...

If you do not have a mobile smart phone with you, you can test this web page or any web page on the internet to see if the page is responsive on a desktop or laptop.

How...

Place your cursor on the left or right side edge of your web browser you are using to read this web page.

Next...

Drag in to make your browser window smaller in width, let go of your mouse or track pad to see if everything repositions itself.

Repeat again to make the width smaller.

If the page is responsive you will see all the contents line up under each other in one column and if its not responsive the page content will disappear off the left or right side of the screen.

The following links are responsive websites viewable on any mobile smart phone.

Why is jQuery and Media Queries used to create a website.

jQuery...

To extend the functionality of html.

Media Queries...

To adjust a web page to fit and be viewable on different width screens.

why websites use
excessive amounts of

jQuery and Media Queries

that bloats and slows a web page loading

Answer...

Since about 2013 the majority of websites are generated by computer program code eg: WordPress.

We have never used...

WordPress or any other content management program.

Plus...

Unlike countless numbers of WordPress websites I have seen since 2013 use between 50 - 500 lines of Media Queries code.

All this code bloats a website and slows the page loading time.

All the websites we develop...

Have three very short lines a Media Queries code.

We could...

Make that two short lines a Media Queries code but we keep the line for old 320px wide phone.

...this page does not use...
jQuery

Brief history about my company, Internet Sales.

I started my first business in April 1982.

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 cost effective method for my company to promote the products we have been exporting to America and a few European countries since November 1990.

My company's factory and office was and still is today, July 19, 2019 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, one wanted $10,000 and the other $8,500 to walk into their office to discuss my requirements.

... I am not joking ...

$10,000 and $8,500 to basically talk to them

I thought how hard can it be to develop a website...

I've been using a computer for my company accounts and word processing since 1983.

But 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 teach yourself something 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 HTML 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 my export business.

In August 2001 I started a new internet based business named Private House Sale.

Skip forward to today, July 19, 2019 I am still...

Why is it important to have a responsive web design.

Responsive website is mobile and tablet friendly, it helps increase visibility on search engines, which in turn can mean more visitors to your website.

one website
viewable on every screen width

including ones that have not been developed yet

This is a great benefit for small, medium and large businesses.

Why...

Just imagine the cost savings when you only have one website to manage allowing anyone to view it no matter the device they are viewing it on.

So the question is...

should you have a responsive website

The simple answer is...

... YES ...

Why is a responsive website the future of web development and what is the best method to create and maintain a responsive website.

Answer...

That depends who you talk to.

If the web developer has been developing websites like myself since 1994 then the answer is write the code as you have control over the whole site's contents.

But if someone started their web developer career after 2003 (when WordPress became available) then no doubt they would say WordPress or one of the other content management systems.

Write the code or use a content management system to automatically generate website code.
