After several months of attempting to make coupon pages look good on a Michigan Toyota dealership VinSolutions website a new and interesting solution has arrived!
Excitedly I started coding a test coupon page using the w3 cards class. Running a few tests mixing a hybrid of the standard VinSolutions css container code with the w3.css code everything looked good. The real test was making a live page and testing it on mobile.
The w3.css code worked perfectly on the website (well almost – you’ll have to read about that on a future blog post). This appears to the the solution I was looking for!
I wondered why I had never seen the w3.css before but couldn’t find a start date on their website. The earliest mention that a Google search produced was a reddit from May 8, 2015. This post mostly was bashing w3 and mentioned that some of the code doesn’t work right. Well 5 months after this w3 bashing post the code appears to work and is a life saver for my team that creates custom pages for VinSolutions dealer website platform.
