I have a webpage that I am creating and am trying to find the proper code for having it display properly on any device.  So that the page will be responsive based on what the screen size it is trying to display on.  Any direction would be greatly appreciated

I use bootstrap and foundation.  http://getbootstrap.com/ and  http://foundation.zurb.com/

Everything is set up for you and you just need to use classes like below that would create stacked rows for a phone and two equal columns for everything else.

<div class="row">
   <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">stuff</div>
  <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">stuff</div>

</div>

What is it you are looking for?  The core of making a responsive site will be using media queries where you define a class for multiple screens.  You can spend a lot of time doing this from scratch.... or you can use bootstrap or foundation or even 960.gs.  These libraries are not meant to be your template, they just make it easier by not having to reinvent the wheel.


https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Guide/CSS/Media_queries
<!-- CSS media query within a style sheet -->
.container{width:100%;}
@media (max-width: 700px) {
  .left_side {
    width: 100%;
  }
  .right_side {
    width: 100%;
  }
}

@media (min-width: 701px) {
  .left_side {
    width: 30%;
  }
  .right_side {
    width: 70%;
  }
}
<div class="container"
<div class="left_side">I will be full width if the viewport is 700px or below and 30% width if the viewport is 701px or more</div>
</div class="right_side">I will be full width if the viewport is 700px or below and 70% width if the viewport is 701px or more</div>
</div>
