Re: Template for mobile browsers

Looks good -- That whole web 2.0 thing really was a bust in my opinion .. but the Responsive Web Design really sorta took off -- I remember when .mobi came out and everyone was scrambling to have two websites, one for phone, and one for everything else. It's grown up quite a bit since 1995 I'll say ...

Re: Template for mobile browsers

Looks good -- Now just write the body into a container of roughly 85-90% and/or give it some margins so that the text doesn't hug the left side of the screen so tightly at a 1920x1080 resolution like it does now. I wouldn't worry much about the footer because right now there really isn't one to worr...

Re: Template for mobile browsers

Re: Responsive template for Spider

RWD eliminates the need for having to htaccess to mobile - We used to do it a long time ago back when writing phone specific protocol was a thing -- Now we just write with CSS and call it a day. If one were to eliminate the hard tables, the page would load and adjust itself to any screen resolution ...

Re: Template for mobile browsers

The main trick here is to remove the tables and write positioning via CSS -- Here's a mock-up of tables removed as opposed to tables not being removed: Tables removed: https://www.reddwebdev.com/images/search.png Tables not removed: https://www.reddwebdev.com/images/search2.png Adding a viewport tag...

Re: Responsive template for Spider

design work doesn't have anything to do with the db -- <table><tr><td></td></tr></table> all have to be removed and CSS is used to determine element placement (for instance: Writing the form text field to 100% in CSS instead of using the hard parameters of a table's 750px will allow the field to vie...

Re: Sphider template bootstrap

Sphider templates are so light and fast that all bootstrap would do is slow it down with an assorted number of unnecessary elements. Fat code is great if you want a fat site, and this particular Sphider build is anything but fat. Bootstrap is more about making money than it is about being proficient...

Re: Extended UA String

Would having the same UA among several or more users be wise? This isn't a distributed utility, like Nutch for instance is. Nutch is banned/blocked for it's many abuses over the years. Most of the webmasters and programmers I've known over the past 20 some odd years block agents that don't identify ...

Extended UA String

Just a note: I've taken the liberty of extending the user agent string text field from 20 to 50 in the configset.php on the admin side: 690 echo "<tr>\n"; 691 echo "<td class='left1'><input name='_user_agent' value=' Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; yourBot/build; +https://www.XXXX.com/XXX/ )'"; 692 echo $r...
