Quick question... Starting my own business- iPage web hosting? Looking forward for any response. Another question I got... I'm stumped on this one, if you view.


I have certain resolutions in order to view the site, but people use so many different resolutions it's to much for me, does anyone know of a script or something that will autoresize my images and code to fit everyones resolution. I would really appreciate it...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

I think you have to design for a minimum resolution of 800x600, but you also have to consider how your iPage site will look in a higher resolution. There is nothing worse than a small text block in the corner of a screen on a 1600x2200 resolution etc.

Generally I never go beyond 700 pixels wide to account for additional tool bars etc (nothing worse than having to scroll 10-12 pixels horizontally all the time).

Your options, if using variable table size, is either to fix the width of the content column/table and then make the white space on either side larger/smaller depending on resolution, or to keep a variable content table width which can then thoroughly mess up your postioning of elements as explained by goldilocks..

Whatever you do, do it simple.....

Thanks again you guys, I should have used tables in the first place, maybe laziness caught up to me and kicked me in the butt. So I will slice up my layout and use percentages as suggested instead of the layers I was using...

1600x220?? man, do you have a 35" monitor???.

Most monitors and graphics cards won't run very well at that resolution. in fact most monitors won't even go that high, if it does then the refresh rate is almost NULL. which is not good for your eyes and will give you headaches...
