The trend in web sites, specifically those based on the WordPress platform, is to use responsive web designs.
Responsive web sites are those that recognise the device being used to browse the web site. For example, if a user clicks in to a responsive web site from their desktop PC, they will see the full width web site. If that user were to click in using their smart phone or a tablet, then the web site would respond by resizing to suit the smaller screen sizes. The page width will be smaller and the various page elements will be stacked vertically.
Business Public Relations Group is now using a responsive design — the ever faithful WordPress default theme, which is currently Twenty Twelve. Browse this web site on your desk top PC and your smart phone to see how a responsive web design modifies the browser’s experience. Try it.
Around one third of visits to my web sites are now being made using smart phones and tablets, so it is important to use web sites that display properly on these devices.
