Resolution

Postby Sairana » Sun 03.23.2008 4:13 am

If your resolution is less than 1280 x 1024, the site has a horizontal scroll bar. The top banner scales to fit the window, but the content is static.

I'm not sure what the standard is, I thought the average person used 1024 x 768 still. Perhaps my perception of that is outdated, though. :P I just thought I'd mention it in case it's fixable/scalable.

Sorry about that. I assume you mean when you have the forums open. Outside of the forums, does it work?

Well, it has pretty much been decided (cute how I use the passive when talking about my decisions...) to go ahead and really theme the forums instead of just calling it in a frame like it currently is. That should take care of your problem.

I think she means the main site, outside of the forum. I'm using 1024 x 768 and there is a horizontal scrollbar. I have to scroll to the right to look at the list of recent blog posts or comments.

Oh I see. Yes, the top graphics are a total of 1165 pixels. Once all the forum and video section mess is cleaned up, we'll start working on the design element again. I'll make sure to reduce the minimum size to less than 1024.

Thanks!

Around 8% still use 800x600, around 91% are at 1024x768 and the remainder above or below those.

http://www.upsdell.com/BrowserNews/stat_trends.htm

As for the site width, it appears that the header graphics aren't the problem. They continue to collapse, along with the top navigation menu all the way down to 640x480 etc... although not terribly gracefully. ;)

The site itself (the rest of the body below the navigation bar) where the 3 columns are appears to hit a minimum width barrier around 1120px or so (the front page gets a horizontal scrollbar at 1113px width). I'm guessing there is a min-width set for these elements in the site's CSS, but I haven't gone digging yet... mostly because there are 18 different CSS files included at the top of every page and I don't feel like shooting myself in the face, which seems about the equivalent of trying to load and peruse all of those from here. :mrgreen:

(But who knows, I'm bored... maybe I will.)

Yeap, I meant the main page. An original version of my OP made that distinction, which somehow didn't make my final draft. :P haha Sorry for that.

Hehe... Yes, that must be what it is. If I get brave later, I'll try to get that below the 1024 mark. Actually there is only one main CSS file for the theme. I'm sure it can be fixed there.
