Designing Buildings Wiki adaptive site
 The way people use the internet is changing.
2017 was the first year that the number of web searches carried out on mobile devices exceeded those carried out on desktop and laptop computers. More and more people are browsing the web on small screens, often while they are on the move.
On 9 January 2018, in response to this change in demand, Designing Buildings Wiki launched a new adaptive site.
Users don't have to do anything to benefit from the update - the site automatically detects the device they on and adapts to suit it. All the functionality Designing Buildings Wiki that users have come to expect will continue to work whether they are looking at the smallest mobile phone, or a hi-resolution widescreen computer.
Designing Buildings Wiki co-founder Dr Gregor Harvie said; "It's important that we provide our users with the best possible experience. So if they are moving more and more onto mobile devices, we need to get mobile too. The new adaptive site makes Designing Buildings Wiki easier and more intuitive to use for everyone, whether they are sat at a desk working, looking for help when they are in a meeting, or searching for quick facts when they are on the move."
If you have any questions or feedback about the new site, let us know by emailing [email protected].
