How do you really test how sites look on mobile?

Recommended Posts

So utterly frustrated with how SquareSpace 7.1 shows up on mobile. I haven't added any special code injections, just using their styles. It looks great in the editor and then then I view it in a browser via the URL or using the SS app and the spacing is all over the place. Two elements can be completely up against each other in the editor on desktop, but will have several hundred pixels of space between them on mobile browser view.

One pattern I'm noticing is it happens consistently below a header text block (H1, H2, etc). It's adding additional space at he bottom of header text blocks and I don't know why.

Anyone else have issues, or have ideas for fixes with vertical spacing being very different than in editing when seen on mobile?

Do you have screenshots of examples, both in the mobile preview and on a mobile device?

Have you tried toggling the 'Fill Screen' option to off?

Yes, actually! Especially since it says it expands the height, and it didn't change the mobile view. 

I think it is only adding it below text boxes where I use a header style. I might have to look into my font Styles and see if there is something in that going on.

But I'm happy to hear if there are other ideas and solutions. Thank you!
