CSS jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Mobile Drop Down Menu Perform: Part 3

How to fix the code to work on all mobile devices

Its not so much a question as i noticed that the layout wasent changing on certain android phones, partially because screen sizes very so much on phones now

I changed the CSS to read this on the media queries.

```@media(min-width:320px) and (max-width:899px){ #menu ul{ display:none; } } @media (min-width:900px){ #menu select, #menu button{ display:none; } }

I also noticed that the screen size wasnt changing on mobile so i added  this underneath each link to the style sheet in the head section

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">

I had to add the above code to each html document.

hope this helps.

if you put your mobile css in first, and then use media queries with max-width as you scale up, you don't really have to have the min-width much (or at all).


//universal css here.

@media (max-width:380) { //all of your specialized css for small mobile }

@media (max-width: 590) { // all of your specialized css for phablets }

@media (max-width: 900) { //tablet layout css (these are just examples, no reason I picked these numbers specifically) }


//if you're working in chrome in the developer window (f12 or ctrl+shift+i/j) //you can scale the window up and down there. (refresh if it doesn't respond to the resizing) //every time your layout breaks. add a new media query with a max width and adjust the layout.

//*I don't know if this is best practice, I would love to hear others' input, Its just how I do quick development for my web //design classes.

//I don't know why I'm still using single line comments. :P
