That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..
Thanks so very much for your kind help..
To answer your question: I would like the layout to remain fixed at 770px and just have the background stretch out properly to the end of the right margin of the screen. I don't really want to expand the layout because I really should fix the page at 800 X 600 so that it will look right on a desktop or laptop monitor. If I expand it, I imagine that the images I will add to the page will also stretch and that probably won't look good..
By the way, this is not my design. I wish I could do this myself. Someday, I hope I'll be able to do this. This is a template from BoxedArt. I am trying to modify it, and that's what's frustrating me. In effect, I would like my modified version (I've removed all of the images from the middle, main panel) to look just like the original version (please see URL in earlier post)..
I'd appreciate suggestions and help on how to correct this problem. The HTML for the modified version was generated automatically in Photoshop (using the Save for Web option). Do I really need a nested table structure or is there a simpler answer?.
All my thanks!.
Uhh I hate to tell you this but it is doing exactly as it should. the thing you have to look at is that you don't have a background to spread. the background is white and that is working just fine. now if you want it to look like it does in 800x600 in all resolutions then you need to edit all tables and use percentages. any time you use static numbers it will always be that way in any resolutions..
So to start make the main table 100% and see where it take you. once you make the tale 100% it will show you where you need to add images to fill in the spots it stretched...
I've been playing around with it a bit, and you.
Be able to try something like these bones:.
Of course, this is highly dependent on the images dimensions: in the left table you're using them as content in TD's, on the right you're using them as backgrounds for TD's (where you.
Set their dimensions). If you come to the conclusion that it might be more trouble than it's worth, you're probably right. I've never sliced images (for layout or otherwise), and now I know.
I don't want to start...
Dear Android and friends:.
Thanks so very much for taking the trouble to offer a detailed nesting table. I am very grateful and will consider it. One thing I've learned from my posts is that there are really are many different ways to skin a cat (hope you cat lovers out there are not offended. We have a lovely cat ourselves) :) There seem to be many ways to solve this issue. One of them is nesting tables. Another is CSS.
I'll think about it and see what works best..
