Responsive Layouts


Oculus's responsive grid system is designed for desktop, tablet and smartphone systems, each with minor modifications to ensure compatibility in each mode. The table above shows the breakdown of screen resolutions and associated devices, and what layout characters are then applied to each.

Responsive Classes


Another useful feature available, via Bootstrap, is the collection of responsive utility classes that can be used to help tweak layouts by providing a simple method of showing or hiding modules. Insert the above module class suffixes into your settings to show/hide a module for a particular mode.

The District’s accomplishments would not be possible without the support of the State of New York, Hamilton County, and FLLOWPA.
