CSS Question

Irregular images and font sizes - mobile

A few tiny problems have been torturing me for weeks. After many researches and many trials I still can't figure out what to do.
On my online resume, the desktop display if perfect. On mobile though, there are many inconsistencies with font and images sizes.

Problems

If you have an idea what's wrong or if there's something I should learn that would be very helpful :)!

Thank you very much!

Below is the code as asked by Paulie_D. I'm sorry if it's so long I don't know what to remove :(. First you'll find the CSS for small screens using media queries, then the "normal" CSS and then the HTML.

Notes:

Perhaps this can help (it's the structure of the website):

(I can post only 2 links max please copy paste and sorry...)

What I've tried so far:


  • for the text: redifining all font-sizes with media-queries for screens smaller than 1000px. For some reason, I have to define font-size for subitems (Box-> Item -> Subitems) because changing h2 or p etc. doesn't affect them. I have to use crazy values like 1.7em for them to look alright on mobile. But then if I'm on desktop with a reduced window (at less than 1000px), 1.7em looks huge :( !!

  • for the images: setting the image as background of the parent's (if I'm not mistaken) box seemed like a promising solution, however when I did that, the image was overflowing the box on the mobile :( ! I've also tried putting width=100% on parent or child but it didn't work.

  • other things that didn't make any sense or things I can't remember :P


Answer

I managed to resolve all problems by using the following code which gives a scale to the page:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

Take care :)!
