Responsive Website Design: Rotating Banner Images Versus a Single Static Image

It’s now been established that in Google search results your website ranking will be penalized if it is not mobile friendly. As a result, many businesses have updated their website to meet this SEO requirement.

In the process of converting to a mobile-friendly website, some additional aspects of website design have changed.

One often suggested change is to eliminate multiple rotating banner images in favor of just one image/photo. This trend to a single image is fueled by the need for mobile sites to load as quickly as possible.

But, you can have the best of both worlds. With a little smart coding a site can be programmed to have multiple rotating images on the desktop view and be limited to a single static image on the mobile view.

Zen Cart v1.5.4 is designed for PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.6

Filed under: Blog Articles,Responsive Websites,Website Updates — Tags: , — jweissberg @ 2:03 pm

In the process of updating several client’s Zen Cart websites we’ve learned that the responsive Zen Cart v1.5.4 is designed for PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.6 (and is compatible with PHP 5.3.7 and PHP 5.4 if really necessary, with some bugfix patches applied).

If your server is still using PHP version 5.2.x (which is VERY OLD and now officially obsolete since 2011) and you try to use Zen Cart v1.5.4 you may encounter an error akin to the following when trying to access the Admin area: Blank Page
 
Remember: PHP 5.2.x is obsolete and officially no longer supported by anybody. You should be upgrading your server’s PHP version ASAP to stay up-to-date for your best website performance.
