How to make my site responsive?

When you create your website you should think first of your audience. If you know that most of your visitors browse on large screens - make sure to use the maximum of the screen width, otherwise, if they mostly use phones to browse your site - optimize your content for small screens.

If you use Svenska Domäner's site builder to build your site you might take advantage of our prebuild professional templates. All of them are responsive-ready which means they are optimized for all browser widths. Here is a guide how to activate the responsiveness of your chosen template:

  1. Open your site in site builder.
  2. Find the screen resolution options in the top bar.
    All templates come with checked only "Desktop" screen resolution by default.
  3. Click on desired screen resolution (wide, tablet or phone).
  4. An additional white option will appear right below the default site builder menus.
  5. Click on it to turn selected responsive version on.
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 for each responsive version you want to activate.

Once you have activated all desired screen resolutions, your site will be responsive on different devices.
