    Could someone explain how I can change my 800 * 600 designed website so that it'll fill the screen in larger res screens? Not really sure where to find out, thought i'd give this forum a try, in larger screens the website just sits on the left of the screen looks very un-professional. The websites made up of basic html and image files (basic, normal website in other words)

    cheers

    Just stretch the content area to fit the new resolution? (ie. add some pixels 'til you have it where you want)

    resolution change

    yea...if you are using tables...this is a quick fix ...

    if you are usuing tables just add the attribute

    HTML Code:
    width="100%"
    which the final table code would look like this...

    HTML Code:
    <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" width="100%">
    thats how to do it with tables...are you using tables?? if not let me know...thanks
    Thanks,
    Drew

    yup yup i'm using frames I tried using 100% wdith and it does this:

    http://www.pre-auto.com/images/misc/...ite_100%25.jpg

    viewing it in normal 1024*768 does this (before I changed it to 100%):

    http://www.pre-auto.com/images/misc/...24_768_res.jpg

    and viewing it in 8*6 it's perfect, fits nicely in the window.

    Do those pictures help? I could do like you sed enter 100% width and increase the pixel width on the images (the header mainly) will that make the screen in 800*600 too big then though? or will it shrink itself too fit? cheers

    oops missed that one, right changed both those to 100% and the image files in it now look like this:

    http://www.pre-auto.com/images/misc/...les_100%25.jpg

    spaced out, should I resize those images to fit the new table sizes? will that sort it for both high and low res viewers then dyou reckon? i'll check back in the morning I think monitors getting very blurry (or is that mye yes) nn
