browser display problem

  Legolas 15:31 24 Sep 2003

I posted this in the web design page as well but this page gets more hits

I created a site with two frames so that I could anchor the navigation links and have the links open in the second frame. The problem is I built it with the resolution on my 17" screen at 1024x768 when viewed on a 15" screen at 800x600 it requires too much scrolling which detracts from the overall look of the site. I then rebuilt it with my screen at 800x600 but when seen at 1024x768 again it looks wrong. How can I make it fit and look okay regardless of the screen resolution being used.

Hi Norrie,

It is normal to place a line on the opening page something like----

"This page is best viewed at 800x600"


"This site should be viewed at 1024x768"

I am sure that there will be an HTML/JAVA answer where the resolution can be detected and adjusted accordingly. It certainly exists inside Excel!

Sorry I could not be of more help.

Sorry, can't help with the question. Just like to say the page looks good at 1280x1024 and it's quite a while since I saw such a well designed site, really clean, yet colourful. Regards. j.

Thank you Djohn I was pleased with it till I saw it on a computer at college and realised at 800x600 it did'nt look as good to much scrolling needed

I also had a problem with the menu it was causing the site to freeze when loading I think I have fixed it now, will you give it go for me and see if it is working ok now. Thanks.
