It is becoming increasingly necessary to create websites that are capable of being accessed through mobile devices. This is becoming necessary as more and more people choose to use their mobile devices to access various web-based services. Simply put, if you create a website that is incapable of being accessed through the mobile devices, you will be doing yourself a great disservice. That is because you will end up with a website that is inaccessible to most of the target audience. We mention this against a background where a growing number of people are accessing Internet services exclusively through their mobile devices. Obviously then, when you set up a website that is incapable of being accessed through mobile devices, you deprive yourself of many potential visitors to the website.
We have gotten to a point where even employers are setting up mobile-friendly HR portals for their employees! Take, for instance, CVS Health – and you find that the employees there can nowadays access myhrcvs pay stubs through the mobile-friendly HR portal.
So, how do you go about designing a website that can be accessed through mobile devices?
Well, the main thing you need to do is set up a CSS template (or tweak the existing CSS template), making special provisions for the website to be accessed on mobile devices. This is a question of first accessing the website’s CSS code, which defines how the website is to be presented to viewers. You then need to tweak the CSS code, to ensure that whenever people seek to access the website through their mobile devices, it is presented in the right manner. This has to be done considering the size of mobile devices’ screens, and the typically limited RAM in mobile devices.
CSS, through the @media tag, lets you define how the website is to be presented, depending on the nature of the device that a visitor uses to access it. Thus, for instance, if a visitor wants to access the site through a desktop computer or laptop, it is presented appropriately. If a visitor wants to access the site through a mobile device, it is similarly presented appropriately.
While at it, it may also be a good idea to consider creating a mobile app, through which people can access the services offered on your website.
