Media Queries / Mobile Design

Hey everyone I recently built a site oacbahamasinc.org I used media queries. When I test the site on my computer it works fine. I adjusts when I resize the screen. However when I open it on my phone I get the regular site.

I am sure that I am missing something here. What do I need to use other than media queries to make my website mobile friendly.

Have you included:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

Hi Peaches,

You just need to put this code inside your header in the html to make it work:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no"/>

All the best,


Thank you so much everyone, I will try it out and update you all in a few days.

Just letting you all know that including that 1 line of code allowed my media queries to kick in properly. Thank you all !

and check for elements that might be bigger than your screen. that always breaks the layout! the chrome devtools really help there
