comment Determine which features not to show in responsive designs non-full site view?
+1 Really what it comes down to, and many of the answers touch upon this, is content hierarchy - determining which module of content is more important than another, and thus should have more relevance in your ordering. Testing and analytics will help you figure this out.

comment How wireframes work for UX/UI design and front-end development
As a front-end developer, I agree on the points you gave to #2. It is extremely beneficial if we are able to see how the wireframe looks across different breakpoints. We can then begin planning out the structure of the site with that, and refine it further once the high level UI mockups come in.

comment Can I use “Prev” instead of “Previous” on a button?
Upvote for the neat technique. However, we use a CSS sprite for the buttons, not text.

@Brian Yes they were the same size.

comment Can I use “Prev” instead of “Previous” on a button?
@Ian re-wording is a possibility, but we do use "previous" for our larger viewports (tablet and higher). I mentioned it below but I should mention it again, our buttons are oriented vertically (including), so it's really a height issue at mobile size that's causing the issue.

comment Can I use “Prev” instead of “Previous” on a button?
When implementing responsive design, the main image can get scaled down pretty small vertically. Fitting the word "previous" into the button becomes really tight and looks sloppy. I want to maintain a certain width so that users can still click on it with their finger, but the height should scale accordingly.

comment Best way to indicate that a image gallery can be swiped left-right on mobile/tablet
I'm up-voting this because I believe it is still a good answer.

Our current next/previous buttons match the height of the image with the text already oriented vertically.

comment Can I use “Prev” instead of “Previous” on a button?
Our previous tests have shown that we get better click-through rates if we have the words + arrows in the button rather than just arrows. That's why we are more inclined to keep the words.

comment Best way to indicate that a image gallery can be swiped left-right on mobile/tablet
As good of a solution as this is, I don't believe that it will work with our current setup. Our gallery images are displayed one-by-one inside a container of pre-defined width. Users are able to cycle through the gallery by clicking next/previous buttons. We want to keep the same functionality when we move down to mobile size. If we had a separate mobile site I could see using this strategy, but not with responsive design.
