  1. Add 'Swipe Support' to your website (RWD CSS3 Any Content Slider demo)

    Let visitors 'feel' their way around the interactive areas of your website by adding support for native swipe gestures on touch devices. I'll be using my earlier RWD CSS3 Any Content Slider (JS auto-play) as a demo, but you can easily take away from this post to add touch gestures to your own apps... Need some other ideas?

    Website features that may benefit from a left or right swipe;
    - a content slider (progress back and forth between slides)
    - an image gallery (progress ...
  2. RWD Cross-Fade Slideshow with Retina Images

    Want a simple, responsive cross-fading slideshow, with images that are lightweight AND retina-ready? You got it!

    Demo: http://fofwebdesign.co.uk/template/_...ideshow-js.htm

    This post covers 2 topics that can be used separately OR combined. First up... the slideshow. ...

  4. Circular Segment Pie Chart Menu (experimental)

    As part of a school website's responsive rebuild, I wondered if it would feasible to remake this dartboard-esque "faculty web" menu and convert it from an image into pure CSS. Well, it *is* possible, but not without glitches - follow my journey from this to this (best viewed in Firefox, Opera and Chrome) below, and grab a more refined "take-away" freebie too.

  5. Opting Out of Responsive Design (choosing desktop layouts on mobile)

    Responsive web design (done well) allows users to achieve their goals on any internet accessible device, but what if they *want* to view the fixed width desktop version of a website, even on mobile?

    This post comes at a time when responsive web design interest is piquing - certainly here on DD - probably the result of those emails we've been receiving via Google Webmaster Tools, that basically tell us how "X % of your web pages do not provide an optimal mobile experience... your ...
