Yep, but you might wanna make sure and wait for another person to confirm it as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the iPage guys because they can answer your iPage question better...
I wouldn't exactly call it an error; just poor design..
Imagine a fixed-width webpage that was designed on a 1600×1200 workstation monitor. It would require a lot of scrolling at 800×600..
Liquid layout is definitely the way to go...
CNN is not liquid, I'm using 1024x768 and there's empty space at right...
Agent he didn't say it was liquid!.
I wouldnt go as far to call it poor design either, I set a fixed width to many pages becuase the content would just look too distorted sometimes, but it depends completely on the content in that page!.
Besides with 90% of the internet on 800x600 it doesn't really make much difference..
I agree that fixed-width is sometimes better. Making a complex page stretch can be tricky too..
As long as it's centered, so the empty space is distributed evenly...
My iPage site (at it's current stage) is a good example of what happens when you build on a 15" monitor (settings at 800x600) and use NO percentages..
I could sure use some good expert information on this. I want all of the the images to stay the same as the viewers monitor size grows EXCEPT for the background..
I have been reading about using tables and just haven't dove into it yet...
I couldnt get past your intro page, didn't get an error or anything, it just wouldnt do anything when I clicked on enter..
Anyway monitor size doesnt affect your layout, you could have a 200" monitor at 800X600 and it would be the same as on a 15" monitor, it's all down to resolution...
Now you've got me wondering why you couldn't get past that page. What browser and modem size do you use BTW? That says a lot..
It may be due to the fact I'm using a client-side image map on the Enter button, which really shouldn't matter, works perfectly fine at my house. I'm using a cable modem and IE6...
Leoo24, sorry. At least it was an opportunity to test my discernment..
Lol, very true, 'discernment' I think many would have to look up to find it's meaning.
By the way.
I got through to your page in the end, yeahyou could use tables and %'s, seeing as your menu is one image with a map it won't change,nor will the rest of the page in tables..
"by the way bassnshan I got through to your page in the end, yeahyou could use tables and %'s, seeing as your menu is one image with a map it won't change,nor will the rest of the page in tables".
Leo, are you saying that having a client side image map will prevent the screen from expanding?.
As Johny Carson would say, " I did not know that"..
Recent iPage site update: changed to tables in frames..
