Responsive Design Fail 1:
Responsive Design Fail 2:
Another example of where responsive design goes wrong is an image website I use regularly. It has great quality images and is pretty reasonably priced. I had no trouble using it until recently when I needed something from it…
To prove you’ve bought an image legally, you have to locate the image on the downloads page and click on the contract link. With average settings on a computer, one can view this by looking to the right of the table, which should show the contract column. My settings are, unsurprisingly, set for my low-vision needs. With their implementation of responsive design, the contract column doesn’t exist. It disappears without any indication it was ever there. Because of this, I didn’t even know I could download the contract!
The only way to view the contract link is to change the view to gallery view, where you can mouse over the picture you downloaded and the contract download button appears. Unfortunately, I didn’t know to do this, and it took the help of a friendly chat team member to send me a screenshot of the page. I could see from this that the column and all the columns to the right of it weren’t there!
