I can't believe it's been over 7 years since I released the first version of Price Tapestry. Back then, the mobile phone of choice would have been something like the Nokia N70 or a Sony Ericsson and WAP was only just being replaced by the first primitive mobile browsers! A lot has changed since then of course, and the stats in terms of Internet access from mobile devices is swinging more and more in their favour every day, so it's becoming increasingly important (almost vital) that your websites work well across the whole range of mobile and desktop devices.
So I have now created a brand new "responsive" theme, based on the Foundation framework which is included in the latest distribution (14/06A) and available for download as an upgrade to all earlier distributions.
The theme can now be seen running on the official demo site:
Please give it a go on your phone, your tablet, your desktop and let me know what you think! If you spot anything unusual or have any page specific feedback, please let me know the full URL to the page and also the device string shown at the bottom left-hand corner of each page e.g. [M / LANDSCAPE].
The pages repond to changes across 3 sizes - S (typically smartphones), M (typically tablets and netbooks) and L for desktop. I have concentrated in particular on optimisations for small devices. On search results for example, filters are displayed by default on medium and large displays, but initially hidden on small displays, revealed by clicking "Filter These Results↓". Note also how the search result info and sort order links collapse and float through 4 different configurations depending on size. On product pages, the detail included in the price comparison table changes appropriately by size.
I look forward to any comments and feedback!
