    I hope I've found the best place to post this. I'm designing a page for a friend of mine utilizing my Photoshop skills, which are far better than my site designing skills. I have cut up a Photoshop image and placed it into Dreamweaver and the graphics themselves look as I want them to. I have layered in HTML for a Twitter feed, embedded YouTube video and created a layer for text in the main news area. Everything looks great on my computer, which has a 1366 x 768 resolution. Problem is, when I test the site on lower resolutions, those layers get knocked around. Is there a way to fix this or should I just step my game up and learn more how to do things. If that's the case, is there anyone with suggestions on how to accomplish what i'm looking to do?

    Here's the page:

    I have also attached a screenshot as I see the page and how I want everyone to see the page.

    Thanks to anyone with an idea, I appreciate it.

    Your problem is with absolute positioning. Absolute positioning should only be used when completely necessary, and even then, absolute positioning on the overall page is generally a bad idea. The best place to start is to learn how to use relative positions and to push elements around with margins/padding and offsets.
