Question: Can You Fix This Problem?

Threaded View

 I created a website using Coffeecup software.  I designed it with my
screen set to 800 x 600.
The page looks good until I expand the screen to 1024 x 768.

At that resolution, the background expands to fit, but the contents of
the web page does not.
The text and graphics remain on the left edge of the page rather than
expanding to fill the page.

What do I need to do to get the entire page to fill either a page set
to 800 x 600, or  a page at 1024 x 768 etc.

The URL to the page would help immensely.

What can I expect if my browser window is 650px wide and 900px tall?

Screen resolution is unimportant; browser window size is very important.
Not everyone browses with a maximized window.

It does that by default, you have to have code to explicitly prevent it from
happening to get the effect you describe.

Hmmm, my HTML is very simple and basic so far.  Im using Coffeecup web
design software.

 As I stated, the background fits 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600 etc.  But the
text and block graphics just hang on the left edge and never expand to
fit or fill anything larger than 800 x 600.

 What should I look for that would limit the size of my graphics and

You didn't see anything to help in the urls provided to you?

You want your contents not to hang to the left and leave
emptiness to the right. You want not for it just to be centred
(that is easy to fix) but for it to expand somehow to fill the
screen when the screen is at the higher res you mention. You
don't want to give a url? So let me guess:

Your site is basically a big picture or a series of pictures or a
table with cells in which there are pictures or bits of pictures.
You want this whole show to expand and look good on the more
detailed resolution?

There is a way to sort of achieve this but it is not something to
be recommended. To see why, you would need to read up on the sort
of urls provided and more.

About the way. If it ONE big picture, your site, reprepare it in
an image editor to be bigger. That is to be 1024px wide. And then
in specifying for it your html/css just put <img
style="width:100%" src="" alt="this is my home page, if you can't
or don't want to see pictures, sorry, this site is not for you">

If it is a lot of pictures and in table cells, then you will need
to calculate the proportional width of each picture and possibly
of all the spacer gifs (pictures of nothing used by some software
to lay things out).

If you have text involved then it gets more complicated still and
you need to provide a url and read the urls provided.
