    Hi,

    Can anyone help me with this page?:

    http://bit.ly/8czM7Z

    I need the two content boxes (which are rss feeds) to automatically resize to display their content properly on different screen sizes. On smaller screens like my laptop, one box is overlapping the other and you can't read or see everything.

    Anyone have any ideas on how I can share the two different blogs feeds on the same page without having display issues?

    Thank you.

    Modify your #left and #right and set the width of both to 45%;

    Then change everything inside them (e.g #rssincl-box-198700) to be width: auto;

    You may have to add overflow:hidden to the container ID to prevent scrolling. Without the CSS being tidied up its pretty hard to assist you. You should ideally move all your CSS into a propper CSS file - it'll be much easier to help you.

    Okay, Than k you.

    I will take another crack at this over the weekend. I've always struggled with css and absolutely detest it. I don't know what I'll do right now.

    duck,

    I feel your pain.

    I think I have come up with a new one: "Them who can, do! Us who can't. use CMS's, WP, etc" LOL

    Long ago I learned that, the better you get at web design, the more boring the actual work gets. I remember the last time I coded something, it was in BASIC on a TRS-80 Model III :rofl:

    I would think it is safe to assume that, people that visit this forum, are online to make money. I find it great that, I do not have to know all the languages to make money. Us non born designers, can chug along and make an income while learning more skills!

    Keep learning and moving forward!!!
    Peace, Mike

    I, on the other hand, love CSS - in fact a friend of mine recently asked me what online games I played and my reply had to be - fooling around in firebug with other peoples' CSS

    Well, rather than deal with redoing my own css, does anyone know of a similar two column template that I could either plug in the two separate rss feeds on this page so they are side by side or a similar two column template that I can start over posting with where I can embed videos side by side like on my site? Maybe there is a Mambo or Joomla template that can do this that I am unaware of?

    Thank you.

    On a side note, 2/25/11 marks 8 years since I joined Web Design Forums and I still have yet to post an avatar.
