What is the tutorial about?

This is a REM and Clamp guide for Elementor to enhance the responsiveness of your website. Specifically, Web Squadron focuses on improving the adaptability of fonts, margins, and paddings across different screen sizes. This is an essential skill for anyone looking to create a website that provides a seamless user experience on any device.

Tutorial Steps

  1. Start with a Container:
    Open Elementor and add a vertical container. Set it to full width and zero out the margins and paddings.
  2. Insert Basic Elements:
    Add a heading, a text editor, and a button to your container.
  3. Switch to REM:
    Change the font size units from pixels to REM. For instance, set the desktop font size to 2 REM (equivalent to 32 pixels) and the mobile font size to 1.25 REM (equivalent to 20 pixels).
  4. Introduce Clamp:
    Implement the Clamp function in your CSS. This function sets a flexible range for your font size, allowing it to adjust according to the screen size. Set the minimum size to 350 and the maximum to 1100.
  5. Apply Clamp to Other Elements:
    Use the same Clamp function for your text editor and button. This ensures that all elements on your website adjust their size according to the screen size.
  6. Adjust Padding with Clamp:
    Finally, use the Clamp function to adjust the padding of your button and container. This ensures that the padding also responds to different screen sizes.
