Making list to a responsive three column list

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by Soupi, Mar 5, 2018.

    Hello All, I have a long list and I want it to be a responsive bootstrap three column list when in desktop view but when bringing it to a Medium size window (Maybe tablet) it becomes a two column list and when bringing it to a small size window (maybe mobile) it becomes a one column list. How would I do this via bootstrap?
    Current code I have right now is:
    <h3> <b>Material Guides:</b></h3>

    Where are your closing brackets for each list item (<li>)? It is allowed in html5, but is a not-good idea; easy to break.
    Here's an example using columns. There are other ways to do this but this is simple. Note that breakpoints are in em measures.
    This makes them self adjusting to the users' preferred font sizes. By narrowing the viewport until something breaks, you don't need to track various device viewport sizes. The #victim-list id is on the UL element.
      body {
      background-color: white;
      color: black;
      font: 100%/1.5 sans-serif;
      margin: 0;
      padding: 1em;
      p {
      font-size: 1em;
      h1 {
       text-align: center;
       font-family: serif;
      #victim-list {
       columns: 3;
       column-gap: 1.5em;
      @media screen and (max-width: 56em) {
       #victim-list {
        columns: 2;
      @media screen and (max-width: 38em) {
       #victim-list {
        columns: 1;

    @kk5st gave you the good solution, just use CSS columns, then adjust the number of columns based on the width in EM for accessibility.

    He's also right on closing your </li> properly, and it's semantic gibberish to put <b> inside a <h3> since "Material Guides" is neither a proper name or legal entity, aka what <b> is supposed to be used for. Aka would be bold in a professionally written document for semantic reasons when not applying "more emphasis" (which is <strong>'s job). You want the h3 bold, do it in your stylesheet (though that SHOULD be H3's default state)

    Oh and Gary, that unitless line-height LIE doesn't work for large font users in certain browsers. The derps over at suckup-central (sitepoint) promoting that are flapping their arse-cheeks in the wind. Declare a metric on that line-height!
