Responsive Website Design – FAQ

What is a Content Management System?

A Content Management System (CMS) is a platform that a website is built on. It allows people to login and edit content. This involves adding images, changing and adding content etc. so that you are able to constantly keep your website updated as your business progresses.

What is responsive design?

A Responsive Design is the way your website is built so that it will react to the shape and size of the device that it is being viewed on, whether this be on a desktop computer, a tablet or a mobile device.

What is a container?

A container is the two invisible lines either side of the content on your web page. This white space that you see is there to compensate for different screen widths (screen resolutions) as some screens are bigger than others. So, in effect, you could be viewing the website on a large desktop screen and it would still look the same if it was viewed on a smaller desktop screen because the spacing from either side will compensate for the larger screen width and it means that no content on your web page would get lost.

How many images should I use in my image slider?

We would recommend using no more than 3-4 images in your image slider, just because images are the biggest things in your website and the more you have, the slower it can become.

What sizes of images should I use?

This depends which part of the website you are wanting to add images to. If you are meaning images in your image slider, then often, you would need a larger image to go in here (e.g. no smaller than 1140px wide). We will write code to ensure that your images are cropped if they are too large for other parts of your website.

What does your Website Training entail?

When your website is built, the next step is for us to show you how to use it. We will ask you to come in for around 1-2 hours so that you can get full, comprehensive training and can leave feeling comfortable adding images, pages and content to your new website. We also provide you with help videos and documentation after the training so that you can refer back to them when we are unavailable for support during the night.
