Hi all,

I have made a website using my screen resolution which is 1280 x 800. I have alligned everything to be perfect with all my tables roughly the same width etc.

But when my mates go on my site with a resolution of 1024 x 768 everything is out of place, things over lap each other etc. I have read up on this and havent found much out. I was wondering if their is anyway in making the site look good for both resolutions.

Thanks alot,

Will

Oh, and the whole "no right click" script is the most worthless thing ever devised. If I want whats on your page, Ill get it whether you have that stupid script or not. I also would never visit your site again because of it.

um, I missed that in all the mess.

You should really try to use something other than FontPage, maybe NVU? http://www.nvu.com/

Maybe learn HTML?

Notepad is the best web design tool. Hands down.

I use TextPad Pro, but its all basically the same thing. Plain text is the way to make a webpage, not a GUI. GUI programs just plain do not do it right.

Well thanks for the complement about my site :whistling: And I am sorry you dont like that bit of code...I used frontpage because I am not a computer nerd so I don't know lots of HTML or Java Script.

You didn't ask for compliments about your site. You asked why it was having problems. We gave you the answer.

Its having problems because its horribly coded, mainly because you used front page.

I know I wasn't looking for complemants for my site but I wasn't expecting insults either, and when you gave that code you didn't even say what it is for, am I meant to copy and paste that, or is that my current code, or what?

That is your current code, specifically the part that tells me that you are using Front Page.

There is nothing that I can do with your code to fix it. Having to sift through Front Page code to find a problem is like finding a needle in a haystack. Most all of it can or will cause problems eventually, thats specifically why we recommend that people do not use it.

I tried out dream weaver but found it all a bit confusing and got a bit annoyed when I couldn't figure out how to publish my site :whistling:

Any recommended programs?

If you are going to use a GUI, use NVU. Its the least annoying of the options available.
