11 Summer 2013 Mobile Website Project A web-friendly presentation of the website launched in July 2013 for mobile devices This is a short-term fix, not a real solution. This will primarily optimize an iPhone experience, but does not account for all other mobile devices Content is not optimized for a mobile experience

12 Whats Changed in the Mobile Layout? Same layout/templates! Css & Javascript alter the layout view for a mobile experience. Certain elements had to be hidden Banner 150 boxes are not viewable Right-hand contents, except for navigation menus Slideshow captions will not appear Optimized for iPhone portrait view & iPad iPhone landscape will still default to a desktop view Larger mobile phone screens will have an extra 20 padding of white-space

13 How Can You Optimize Your Pages? 1.Review your web pages from a smartphone. Can you see the essential information? 2.Formatting: -Dont use inline styles. Use the styles in the Ektron WYSWIG menus. Adding in your own font tags, colors, and sizes will not reformat in size for a mobile screen -Dont use tables for layout -Dont specify widths in your images 3.Reduce, reduce, reduce content. What is essential to read?

14 Formatting Examples 1.Remove extra space above the page titleRemove extra space above the page title 2.Change the Quick Link menu nameChange the Quick Link menu name 3.Remove odd, inline text stylesRemove odd, inline text styles View the Web Communications & Services blog to see more postings on formatting fixes for mobile devices.formatting fixes for mobile devices If you need help fixing any of your web pages, just send the page name to and we will be more than happy to help make the fix for you!
