I currently have uBlogsy on my desktop site which works great for me at http://www.ystrad-mynach.ac.uk/news-and-events/news/
I'm soon to launch a mobile version of our desktop site which will basically be a stripped back version.
I was wondering, has anyone managed to get uBlogsy to work for a mobile site.
Ideally, I would want to drop the relevent uBlogsy macro tags into my mobile templates (which are significantly different to my desktop site template)
Should work fine.
Just override the css.
Hi Anthony, will have a play around, i'm guessing I will need to create seperate UBlogsy CSS files for my mobile site
Hey there, I have just finished another site which uses Ublogsy...have you thought about using Responsive design? Took me about 2 hours to modify the master pages and integrate Ublogsy into my eixsintg reponsive design without losing ANY functionality.
Did consider responsive design but due to time implementation didnt want to interfere with current desktop CSS/HTML so at the moment have seperate desktop templates and CSS to mobile templates and CSS.
Our mobile site is not necessarily duplaicting the desktop site either with it featuring different content.
In time, when new templates are created, responsive design may be used however to meet all platforms.
You could also consider adding new css with media queries to snap everything down. That way you dont loose functionality.
Or if you don't want some functionality, you can put an if statement at the top of what ever macroscript you don't want rendered. That will save you having to have multiple new copied files.
Stephen, I'd like to see that responsive site you made with uBlogsy. What's the url?
Hey Anthony...just trying to sort out my Azure platform to get it live, will post when its done.
Although i have done a slightly older site using responsive design, media queries etc...
Still need to sort a few things out for tablets and menu's etc but its wokring to a point.
Looks really good Stephen. I was wondering about trying to make it responsive. You should write a blog about how you did it.
Thanks for the feedback Anthony, my new one looks even better...but yes I will try to document it, I'd be interested in helping out in making it responsive...
There is a lot more that could be done/improved
@Stephen , it will be great , if you share the css for your responsive website , I am currently learning Responsive designs , it will be really helpful if you can share it, as many of my website have ublogsy installed on it , and soon i will be changing all the website to repsonsive layout:) , thanks
I've thought about making it responsive. The problem is that everyone is using a different responsive css framework. I need to get more feedback from people about responsive.
Yeah very true and there are new ones coming out every week! Probably best just chosing one and showing it as an example.
I use 1140 grid which i think is the simplest but is not an ongoing supported project, there must be some stats out there which highlights the most used...I know http://960.gs/ is very popular but in esseesnse they all generally work the same from the CSS.
I've used 1140 which I really like. It is very lightweight and simple but only supports 12 cols which may be a problem for some people. 960 is a bit more complex. There's also the issue of implementing a framework that may be out of date. Eg. If I use 960, then a newer version comes out which the developer wants to use.
@Stephen, I like the responsive site you posted. I responsive version of uBlogsy would be great. Having said that, I didn't really have any trouble integrating uBlogsy 22.214.171.124 with a site I recently did that uses a responsive design. If anyone is interested the site is www.mccanninvestigations.com and is my first responsive site using Umbraco and also using uBlogsy . As far as I can remember, because I customized uBlogsy to use my existing templates I don't think there was any need to update the uBlogsy templates for responsive design purposes - I think that is great development on your part Anthony, thank you!!!
I used Dreamweaver which enables you to use fluid layouts with default settings. I cutomized how many columns I wanted to use for the three CSS 'layouts' the software sets up for you. My computer has had to endure a lot of bad language while I get to grips with using responsive design and I'm sure I have a lot more to learn but it is definitely worth it.
I have started to implement a responsive mobile version of my site http://www.monkstowncommunityschool.org. There are still a few bugs with the news section when viewed from a mobile device. I have created the BasePage.mobile.cshtml template equivalent of BasePage.cshtml and this has allowed me to create a jquery mobile template for my site. The mobile template is automatically applied which is the standard MVC 4 behaviour when a razor page is created with .mobile before the .cshtml file name.
