If someone has launched a new responsive site is it possible for you to post the url for review? How did things go?  Are there anythings to be aware of that are of concern.  I am getting close to pulling the trigger on our site.  Given the importance of it going smoothly I would like to make sure I am not about to step into the abyss :)

Dang. Somewhere in this mass of posts is one with some of the new site URLs, but I can't find it! So hopefully folks will post here so we can maybe keep an ongoing list.

I'm just in the process of launching a new site, but finding the responsive mobile site isn't so 'responsive'.

You can edit the mobile site separately, but I'm finding the options very limited.  Can't even edit the logo which is being responsive at all.

Hi Scott,

There are definitely limitations with the mobile aspect. It would definitely be beneficial to see some of the sites others have built.

Hey David:

I am pretty much finished reworking my site so that it is actually responsive. I posted a "how to" short tutorial on how to make the mobile view work correctly, but it unfortunately may require you to redo some of the work on your site. Here is the link:

https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/how-to-make-sure-text-elements-will-be-responsive-a...

This link is to my site that should now be fully responsive for desktop and mobile views. I'm really happy with how the mobile view turned out, but again, if you don't use the method I outlined in my 'how to' post, pretty much nothing on your mobile view will be responsive :(

If you shrink your browser window it is only responsive to a certain extent unfortunately. I discovered this problem when I published my site several weeks ago. There was a topic I started on the issue, but it was deleted. Here is your site, shrunken down to illustrate:

The biggest issue with the site not being fully responsive to shrinking the browser window is the lack of a scroll bar on the bottom. This renders anything outside of the window unavailable unless the window is large enough. I tested my site on many different screen sizes and it was a definite problem. Last I heard they are aware of the issue and working on a fix.

I launched our new responsive site earlier today.  The only issue I am having is that when opening a page it takes to long to fully populate all the elements.  Others have reported the same issue so Drew is taking the issue to the developers.  As for the mobile site that seems to be working fine. The url is www.csthousing.com

That is really nice! I didn't realize we had a phone call button option - off to rework my site to add them :)

Very nice...Thanks for sharing. Ours was published earlier this week www.csthousing.com We are still having issues with pages building slowly.  Am glad to see that is not an issue with your two sites.  Drew...do you know if they are making any progress on this?

Lovely sites Susan. It's fun seeing how everyone finds different ways to utilize the program's capabilities. Thank you for letting us take a peek!

@David - Susan's sites are doing the skeleton thing for me.

For what it's worth I've been unable to get the skeleton issue to happen with Safari...but it happens consistently with Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Explorer.

That's a good one for the developers to know and I'm sure Drew has/or will pass it on. Very strange that it wasn't discovered in the Beta test (tongue in cheek).

That's ashamed but it sounds like it points to a universal issue as opposed to the way a particular site is built.  I hope this is a priority for the developers. I am sure it is discouraging for us all to have spent all the time building a site only to have a negative first impression for a visitor.

I had some issues, so moved everything back to my old site and holding off on publishing the new one until a fix is found.
