Topic: Bootstrap Responsive Viewport and MDB CSS Class Support Needed!

surface2air free asked 5 years ago

I have a couple of questions regarding a recent project:

01 - First, I am having some spacing issues regarding the section on my home page that is not adequately spacing a margin and / or padding below my section. On desktops, it's fine, but I would like to reduce the padding on the content by about 10px moving it up towards the .

On tablets, the text content overlaps my photo completely in portrait orientation (not the intended design). And on smartphone displays, I would like to increase the padding in portrait orientation between the photo and the section.

I have tried all kinds of combinations using bootstrap classes targeting breakpoint size (e.g., mt-sm-5, pt-sm-5) and using media queries for specific breakpoints and orientation, but I cannot seem to get this to work.

02 - Second question: I really like the "view + mask" effect, and I have succeed at leveraging that on the Schedule page of my project near page top. A rose-orange gradient overlays a rough concrete texture.

I wanted to recreate that on my home page in the Sidebar at page top in the asymmetric split view with the photo, but I can only seem to render the gradient overlay. I have tried some other similar tricks in CSS but I cannot seem to get the concrete.jpg texture to appear through the gradient overly on the sidebar.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

You have to delete height=100vh on mobile devices becouse of that the page corrupts, and try to add mt-5 to row element


You have to put your image to <div class="view">, look at this article:

Hi Tomek,

I have redesigned and recoded my layout concept from the ground up using CSS Flexbox. Thanks for the good catch on the view height (100vh) which I fixed, and I revisited the documentation for view+masks which work in the revamped code I have. In my original draft, there was too much going on, and I have cleaned it up with a more agile and cleaner solution that seems to support all variance of desktop and device viewport displays and orientation. Thanks!
