Hi, i am looking for a widget (or another possibility) to give users an orientation alert (turn it into landspace view) for my website, since the layout doesn't properly show in portrait view.

I found this Link but it's not working anymore:

https://musewidgets.com/products/orientation-widget

Anybody know of an alternative?


Thanks!!

There was once a very good advice from Ussnorway​​ to use icons for each device and link to them.

This would need adaptive design. If you use responsive design, the next question is obvious:

Why does your design doesn´t show up properly in portrait view?

Could you provide a link at first to watch? Maybe, although I´m quite sure, we provide suggestions to solve your issue.

If you use responsive design already and use breakpoints, you could create a button for these portrait view to let people know that they should turn their tablet, phone, (desktop ) to landscape view. You could then hide this button in other breakpoints, that fit to your needs. This would, unfortunately, not be 100% reliable as you do not know how users use their devices and  what kind of devices they use.
