Head out to http://www.hihatwebdesign.com/mobile/about.php

I've got the following in my header:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title>Laverge Smiles Family Dentistry</title>
<link href="stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link media="screen and (max-device-width: 320px)" href="landscape.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />
<map name="contact_images">
<area shape="rect" coords="89,11,127,47" href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/LaVergne-Smiles-Family-Dentistry/194700547255806?fref=ts">
<area shape="rect" coords="142,10,180,49" href="">
<area shape="rect" coords="195,10,233,47" href="mailto:info@lavergnesmiles.com">
</map>
<map name="menu">
<area shape="rect" coords="10,16,304,54" href="about.php">
<area shape="rect" coords="12,79,301,107" href="services.php">
<area shape="rect" coords="12,140,302,166" href="patel.php">
<area shape="rect" coords="11,200,299,225" href="testimonials.php">
<area shape="rect" coords="10,260,302,286" href="patients.php">
<area shape="rect" coords="10,317,299,344" href="contact.php">
<link rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/smoothDivScroll.css" />
</head>

Open in new window


I'm thinking that the "<link media="screen and (max-device-width: 320px)" href="landscape.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />" line gives provides a different stylesheet when my user rotates their mobile device from landscape to portrait.

I'm doing something wrong because it doesn't seem to work and I'm hoping someone can show me where I'm blowing it.

Thanks!

What you do is copy all the styles of landscape.css and put then in your normal CSS under the header.. media screen and (max-device-width: 320px) like the following..
@media screen and (max-width: 320px){

// Copy all the landscape code here...

}

Do I need to do anything with this line of code in my header:

<link media="screen and (max-device-width: 320px)" href="landscape.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />

This isn't in my stylesheet, this is in the header portion of my page. Bottom line: is the "href="landscape.css" need to be changed to "stylesheet.css" which is where I just put all my css dynamics that apply to the landscape view.

Do the following...

Remove the line of linking of the landscape.css....

Copy all the code of landscape.css where it is written //Code of landscape.css...

@media screen and (max-width: 320px){

// Copy of landscape.css

}

Open in new window


and then paste the above whole code in your normal css stylesheet like this...

example..

*{ ...}
body { ....}
...
.
.
..
.

@media screen and (max-width: 320px){

// your landcape.css code...

}

Open in new window
