How to change the res of a site?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Im new to OSC. Got to love open source !!


I have a site i am busy developping at the moment. Is there anyway to make the site full more of the screen easily.

IE 1024x768 Its kind of small....


Many thanks

I don't think that you can make OSC change the monitor resolution so the site looks better on each monitor it is displayed on. However, I know that when I create the top banner on most sites I make the banner 1000x200 (approx.) so that the users with widescreen monitors can open the browser wider and fill more screen. My current settings are 1280x1024 so I create sites compatible with my resolution........and presumable everything less than my resolution will look ok.

Thanks Chris,

Yes i want to make the site fit the screen (regardless of what res they run)

I use a 22" wide LCD screen, but even this fourum's page fits the screen nicley.


Alternativly i want the site to fill the screen of a 1024 (most commonly used i think) if thats posible.


Im using a template at the moment and tie site looks nice but i want it to auto adjust to fit the page.


Is that possible?

If you make things 100% wide they will always fill screen!


osC default it 100% wide.

You cannot reset users screen resolution, nor should you want too.



Remember, What you think I ment may not be what I thought I ment when I said it.
