Google web designer is supposed to make websites that are responsive to any gadgets, right? well, I designed a website and it looks good on the computer, but it's ugly on phone, it doesn't even zoom in/out.
check it: http://gate-azhar.co.nf/
was I supposed to do something in the beginning, that led to this mess?

Hi

Your web site will not be responsive by itself, you have to make it responsive, and your site is not. You have to:

1. Set components width to percent and not px.
2. Use media rules.

Media rules can be a difficult task, but NOT in GWD. I will also recommend this youtube videos:

thanks for answering, mr.Svein-Tore

yet I have another question: can you explain what do you mean by media rules?
and should I do that in design or code view?

Hi Mahmoud!

@media rules are CSS coding. You can code it in code view, or use the media rules (responsive) in the design view. Let me give you an example:

@media (max-width: 1228px) {
.gwd-img-up8c {
visibility: hidden;
}
.gwd-img-8guw {
visibility: hidden;
}
.gwd-carouselgallery-1teb {
transform-origin: 166px 109px 0px;
width: 331.98px;
left: 6.58%;
top: -5px;
}
}

Here I have an image with the class gwd-img-up8c. A you can see:

@media (max-width: 1228px) {
.gwd-img-up8c {
visibility: hidden;
}

This means when the width is from 0 to 1228px, this picture is hidden. The reason is that when the screen size is less than 1228px there is no space for this image. So I use the
@media rule to fix this.

I recommend you to take a look here: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css3_pr_mediaquery.asp

On the other hand, it is much easier to fix this in design view. Unfortunatley I can't find a way to upload something for you here.....
