Responsive Design websites - how they look on different devices
This post is to demonstrate how a Joomla! website configured with a Responsive Design template changes appearance when viewed on different sized devices.

And this is on an iPhone 11 Pro - note the change to a touch-screen dropdown menu (known as a hamburger menu), and all alignment has shifted "down" the page:
This demonstrates why configuration needs to be considered for all layouts, and changes need to be re-tested on all platforms to ensure ongoing usability. If there is too much information on a page, it becomes unusable for mobile visitors.
