Page Layout & Column Concept
The MPI Global and Chapter website templates within the Sitefinity CMS
use a coding tool kit, or
framework, called Bootstrap.
Bootstrap is one of the most popular frameworks for developing
mobile-friendly, or responsive, websites. A responsive website automatically
adjusts for different screen sizes. Bootstrap's grid
system is responsive, and the columns will re-arrange depending on the screen
size. For example, on a big screen it might look better with the content
organized in three columns, but on a small screen it would be better if the
content items were stacked on top of each other.
grid system is made up of 12 columns across the page. Columns can be grouped together
to create wider columns. Grouped columns can be used in many different
configurations, but the groups must always add up to 12.
example, you can have 2 groups of 3 columns each next to a group of 6 columns.
3+3 is 6, plus another 6 equals 12.
