Responsive Design/Grid Question

Jun 25, 2012 9:37 AM

I'm using the fluid grid design, and my mobile layout has 5 columns, and some DIVS added - see below:




I'm trying to get my "LEFT PANE" using 2 columns, and my "RIGHT PANE" using 3 columns to the right of the left pane. You can see they are side by side above, but the right pane only takes up 2 columns.


As soon as I make the RIGHT COLUMN stretch to 3 columns, it moves it down below the left column, like below:




What am I doing wrong? Any help/tips/direction appreciated!

    Offhand, I'd say you're not keeping your LayoutDivs inside the GridContainer Div.  And your floated LayoutDivs are too wide to fit on the same row. There should be some gutter space between them. See screenshot below:

    Why don't you start over with a new fluid grid layout and try changing your primary settings a bit?  I like to work with even numbers of columns.

    I've been using CSS Media Queries (although not fluid) for some time now.  I don't see any upside in maintaining separate web sites for Desktops/Laptops & Mobiles, do you?
