    I have been creating websites for a while now but cant seem to cut the work short by just using one site for all resolutions.

    Any ideas would certainly be grateful. Only thing helping me is css, having to create three different pages as one for different resolutions. so if the website has 5 pages I would have to make 15 pages, etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    You're looking for a liquid layout. Liquid layouts define columns, etc. in terms of percentages as opposed to set widths.

    Keep in mind, though, that no matter what, there are going to be some fixed width issues you're likely to have to deal with (e.g. images, Adsense code if you're a publisher, etc.)

    Look at the 1140px grid system, it makes good use of media queries to suit all the way down to mobile resolutions!

    thanks for the liquid info TheGAME1264... it came in handy. You lost me on the 1140px, Ganners, but thanks anyway the same. But i have but another puzzle on my hands or rather question and that is will liquid layout work with images and flash?

    Sorry, shouldve provided a link! Check this site out: http://cssgrid.net/

    It will work with images, flash is a different matter though, and you don't really want to resize flash objects I'd think.

    Guys, it's just a belief. A bit pessimistic for my liking, but he meant well by his comment. He's showing gratitude, so no harm, no foul. Just say thanks for the thanks.

    Besides, the end of the world doesn't have to be a bad thing:
