As more people use various devices, responsive design has become more essential as a way to optimize sites for different screen sizes.
Consideration should also be given to column order; usually this will depend on their position within desktop view.
Change the order of the columns
By default, columns within a section are typically aligned from left to right by default, creating an awkward design on mobile devices. You can quickly rectify this with Elementor’s Responsive Column Ordering feature.
To utilize this feature, head to Row Settings and then Advanced tab. Under there is an option labeled “Reverse Columns for Mobile”. When clicked upon, all columns will stack backwards for mobile viewing.
This feature provides an effective way of making your website responsive without editing each element separately for different device sizes. Just remember that changing any element in one preview mode will affect changes on all other device previews as well. For greater control, if desired, CSS classes can also be added to columns in order to designate their order when mobile – although this solution requires more work, but can prove more successful for larger sites with multiple columns needing reordered.
Change the width of the columns
Elementor is a popular page builder that makes website creation fast and straightforward, offering features designed to help create professional designs quickly and effortlessly. Furthermore, Elementor boasts an exceptional mobile responsive feature – essential for websites targeting mobile devices.
Elementor allows you to change the width of a column using multiple techniques. Resetting its defaults or varying its width depending on device size are just two methods for controlling column width – these methods help prevent column stacking while offering greater control in managing website layout across devices.
To set column width in Elementor, hover over an icon of a column and select “Edit Column.” Next, under Column Width (%) enter your preferred percentage; this setting will apply across all responsive breakpoints including Mobile and Tablet views; however this method isn’t the optimal way of managing responsive layouts and managing order of columns.
Change the layout of the columns
Layout of columns is an integral component of creating pages using Elementor, and sometimes needs to be reversed for certain sections. For instance, perhaps your contact info needs to appear after your image on desktop but before on mobile.
Elementor makes it easy to customize the layout of columns by simply clicking on their arrows, as well as adjust padding and margins accordingly for each one. This ensures a seamless appearance throughout your design.
Elementor provides another way of changing column layout by creating a new row and adding an image module, then duplicating this row by clicking Duplicate Row icon in Visual Builder. Next, add text module in second column so as to form two column grid for mobile layout and then drag/drop your modules as necessary.
Change the order of the sections
Elementor makes it easy to change the order of sections on your website by simply clicking on its Responsive mode icon. After doing this, editing layout for mobile devices becomes simple. Plus, use Elementor’s drag-and-drop functionality to easily add or remove columns or other elements within each section.
By default, columns in a section are ordered based on how they appeared on desktop when transitioning to mobile. This works well in most designs as it enables the column with maximum visibility on desktop to appear first on mobile.
However, sometimes your column order doesn’t suit the layout you desire for mobile viewing of your site. CSS code offers one way of doing this; however it may be time-consuming and inflexible compared to Elementor’s new Column Responsive Order feature which lets you rearrange column orders for Desktop, Tablet, and Mobile views simultaneously.
