Bigdawg

The problem is that you web site does not resize very well, so when looking at different resolutions you are going to have problems.

For example I notice that for one (maybe more) you use a margin of "margin-right:345". As a huge FIXED margin it will not really perform correctly when being resized, as you have already seen.

I found it a little difficult to give you an answer as many of you styles are in the body and not as CSS.

Laughing out loud I promised my wife I would go to bed a bit earlier tonight so will have another look at it tomorrow.

What we need to do is get all of the styles out of the body and into the head as CSS to make it easier to manipulate and the use classes and some Divs to contain Nav, content, and right hand column.

Also when I look at this site with resolution of 1024*768 si that how you want it to look?

The basic thing to do, rather than have the bar on the right absolutely positioned, is to float it right... then it will move with the page. Then the fixed margin-right will at least be there for a reason!

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.

Oh the problem with resolutions!!!!!!

Toys are coming in faster than I can handle the deliveries. This year it is a very Dell Christmas. So this brings me to the page in question. I am not spending as much time as I should dedicate thus the extra problems. Day I did the gallery in pure css and the body styling comes from me cheating a little with the program to style the paragraphs. I hope you got your rest because you have to keep the wife happy.

I think I have two wives the nice one and the "OTHER" one!!!

The page in question will render itself correctly in either resolution if it is designed in that res. however neither are friendly to changeing the resolution.
Djomp you are right and I removed it the absolute. Thanks in advance

what there is a nice one, wow :twisted:

nah she just looking after me - making sure I get some sleep.

Ok - based on some of the text you had in there it looked like you wanted the menu to be horizontal so I did it that way, although you had it vertically in the site I was looking at.

Bigdawg - be aware that the template in 1st page has an old Doc Type, that makes browsers render your page in Quirly mode - so I replaced the doc type with a current one.

I knocked this up quick so should be ok and looks ok in IE6 and FB0.7
I did not put in any hacks for IE5.x - leave that one to you, and did not validate it - you probably want to move CSS to a stylesheet as well.

You can play around with the sizes I used, to whatever you want.

Oh the problem with resolutions!!!!!!

That worked I just put it in the web editor I use except I want the vertical menu. The reason I have chosen to leave the css in the html page instead of externally linking it is because when I am working on a page I like it internal until I get it how I like and then I add it as an external style sheet. Thanks for the Help!!!!

A funny thing if you do a google search on Bigdawg and Nicole Hilton or Nicole Richie or Paris Hilton and even just plain Hilton I come back #!1 in all searches. Tongue

Do you want all the text up beside the vertical menu, or below it as you had?

Oh the problem with resolutions!!!!!!

Actually I am just getting a grasp on this css thing I would like to do a box 1 px around main content . Went from tables to layers and now on to css positioning which I find can be quite tricky. If you have the time play with it and lets see what you come up with. I would like more defined margins but when I tried to change too much the page got out of whack. Thanks for your help!!!

PS I really do not care for the line on the paragraphs but would rather have a box around all three in main content. Have an editor that is not as friendly towards css as Dreamweaver was. I had just started getting the hang of it when my trial expired. So I am learning it by hand coding everything versus relying on the program. Said I cheated and the lines on the side were done with the program.

Simple enough I have the box but it is around all three how do I get just one. I realize the p tag is why I have three but what change would I make so I have one?

code it the other way around -

1) Replace all the P tags around each paragraph.

2) Take out the border: 1px #333333 solid; from the .mcontent p and put it in .mcontent like below

.mcontent 
{ 
width: 50%; 
float: left; 
margin-right: 1%; 
border: 1px #333333 solid;
} 

.mcontent p 
{ 
 padding:1em;
margin-left:15px;
}
