How is it to work for iPage.com in Arizona?

First off, How is it to work for iPage.com in Arizona? Hoping for any comment. My other question... My Webpage.

Thanks for responses to yesterdays question..

My home page fits on full screen OK, even when I open Favourites or Search on my browser, it shrinks to fit ok. But all my other pages go off screen to the right. I reduced my image sizes and this has helped, but how do I change the fixed size (left & right) side boxes so they also shrink to fit the screen??????.

Please note I am no expert to say the least when it comes to code, this is a learn as you go experience for me. So please be gentle with the replies, I may have no idea what your talking about, so please keep it simple for me..

Thanks.

Julian..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

Here try this, it worked for me.

1. Open catalog/includes/application_top.php.

2. Find the line (around line 47) that reads.

// customization for the design layout.

Define('BOX_WIDTH', 145); // how wide the boxes should be in pixels (default: 125).

3. Change "145" to a different value...

INSTRUCTIONS.

1. Open catalog/includes/application_top.php.

2. Find the line (around line 47) that reads.

// customization for the design layout.

 define('BOX_WIDTH', 145); // how wide the boxes should be in pixels (default: 125).

3. after this, add the following lines .....

// customization for the design layout left column.

 define('BOX_WIDTH_LEFT', 165); // how wide the boxes should be in pixels (default: 125).

 .

// customization for the design layout right column.

 define('BOX_WIDTH_RIGHT', 125); // how wide the boxes should be in pixels (default: 125).

4. (set your own width preferences (I have used 165 pixels for the left column and 125 pixels for the right) Save file.

5. Now open the second file to edit: catalog/index.php.

6. Find the first line to change at (around line 51) that reads.

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">.

7. REPLACE this line, with the following line .....

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_LEFT; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_LEFT; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">.

8. Find the second line to change at (around line 325) that reads.

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">.

9.REPLACE this line with the following line.....

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_RIGHT; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_RIGHT; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">.

10.Repeat steps 6 to 9 for the other files that you want to change the width in otherwise the changes will only be to the index page and pages loaded into the index page. This can be achieved by using a find and replace search function..

11.Save your file changes and upload to your server..

This is a copy of one of the lines I have in, following your instructions. It makes no difference whatsoever. Even if I change the widths in application_top from 125 to 80, 150, 180, nothing changes??? Any ideas..

[CODE]if (SHOW_COLUMN_RIGHT == "true") {.

?>.

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_RIGHT; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_RIGHT; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">.

<! right_navigation //>.

<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES'column_right.php'); ?>.

<! right_navigation_eof //>.

</table></td>.

<?php.

}..

To which file do you refer, you obviously have a modified code structure with the if statement...
