Ha, it totally does. It’s why many modern websites are flat with big goofy banners… a barrage of bootstrap layouts.
But what can you do?
With Hype, you can wedge elements to stay in corners or have them stretch across the whole page. That’s what I like to do. It depends on your content. Sometimes you might not need any breakpoints. But, it is a pretty big jump from an iPad to mobile. That’s what breakpoints are for. It lets you create a different layout for different screen sizes. If you feel things are getting too squishy or too stretched, then using a breakpoint is a good idea.
Using iFrames causes a problem. When I place a Hype project in WordPress with iFrames, I typically set the width to 100% and the height to 360 pixels. Here’s an example…
It’s not a renaissance equivalent of web design, but you can see how I used flexible layouts. Every corner has something wedged in there and the text in the middle is centered. It’s an easy way to create a quick project.
- early retirement
- new job (This is similar to the “Drupal Exit Strategy”, where the job of upgrading from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 is so difficult, that it’s just easier to get another job.)
- spend millions, hire consultants do it
I’m kidding, mostly
The point is it’s a common problem for today’s web designers. It sounds like you’re trying to rush something that is a good lesson for you. It really takes a different way of thinking to create modern websites - especially if you want them to look pretty. Battling with this project might take longer than expected. But if you get it right, similar projects in the future could be a lot easier.
