initial view fits on screen?
# March 1, 2013 at 11:10 am
I’m starting a new site and it’s ok on desktop, but in portrait mode, the site doesn’t view the entire page, and I also can’t pinch and zoom at all.
I have height and width set to 100% in bothand , hoping that would do it and it’s not working
anyone have an idea?

I just tried that and it didn’t appear to change anything. I can still see it ok in landscape, but not portrait. I can’t even pinch to zoom, which is the part that bothers me too-

If you were to scale to device width in portrait mode things might get pretty tiny if you’re viewing on mobile (which I’m guessing is the case if you’re talking about viewing in portrait). While not exactly the answer to your question, something to think about is using some percentage based widths and maybe some media queries to make your site a little responsive. Just a different, albeit more complicated approach to solving your problem.

I don’t think this is going to help you.
Standard portrait mode is, what 768px? You can’t cram 1200+ fixed px into that.
Sounds to me as though mobile wasn’t a requirement for the client especially as they ‘didn’t want to go responsive’.
If mobile **was** a requirement then it sounds as though ‘mobile first’ might have been the best option.
