Hey everyone, I’ve been working my tail off creating a clean mobile website version with a decent “hamburger” dropdown-slideout menu. It’s getting there. We’ve tested on fairly current iPhone and Android, but feedback is welcome. Please know I’m a big fan of larger “touch targets” and readable text so I’ve set things up to be fairly jumbo. One thing I’ve noticed right away is the only way to hide the menu is to click on the hamburger icon. It should also hide when you click over on the content or the back button. Oh well, ever onward.
Design of this is ongoing. Please note that none of the banner ads are pop-over or pop-up or otherwise annoying. As always but bears repeating, we could never afford the time and money to do WildSnow.com without the advertising from our gracious sponsors. So please please turn off your ad blocker*. Seriously, you won’t find any obnoxious advertising. No animations, no flyouts, nothing.
Web developers out there: Yes, I’m still playing around with having two separate website versions instead of one fully “responsive” version. So no need for lectures about that (grin). It’s an ongoing project and perhaps I’ll cut bait. We shall see.
*Note about ad blockers: Advertising such as ours is “pay per view.” Thus, if you turn off the advertising you turn off our wages. Please be kind.
