Numbas

Responsive layout on mobile devices

On small screens (tablets and phones, mainly), the default Numbas theme didn’t used to leave much space for the question content.

I’ve spent the past couple of days making the theme responsive, so screens less than 980px wide switch to a more vertical layout. The question menu and pause/end buttons move beneath the content area, and the banner is more vertical too. This means the content area can have the full width of the page.

I’ll show you what I mean, using my Android phone. Instead of looking like this…
