Yea, there are plenty of iContact promotions out there. Awesome way to save cash on iContact now. I urge you to you to register for their promo emails so you can get their most recent online promotional codes. They typically mail once a month or so..
Sorry I forgot to upload background image... It has now.
So you could see it...background image is silver with vertical line.
Because all your images are way to big to be on a 640x480 screen. make them smaller..
You back ground is to big for my 19" screen..
1003x600, make it smaller, also it helps when people view your site. on dialup is is way slow...
I mean How could I make background image so user using 17' or 15' monitor got no overlapped background ( for user using 15'). Look at as example.
, whether you using 17' / 15' monitor the background not overlapped. On the other hand , mine not working...it is good at 17' monitor but background is overlapped at 15'..
Okay, I can see it now. By overlapping, do you mean repeating over on the right? That happens because the image you're using for your background isn't wide enough. I'm using 1024x768 resolution; here is an article on making an image for the background:.
He suggests making the image at least 1200 px wide; it has to be small vertically then so as not to be too big a file. your background image is 600px high; I had trouble getting the page to load, and I have DSL. Also FYI the image in the middle didn't even load for me today. It isn't the monitor size but the viewer's resolution that will affect the background repeat..
Here is the important paragraph on that page:.
You'll need to create an image that is long and thin. The thickness, or how tall the image is, is up to you. I keep it fairly small to cut down on bytes and load time. The width, though, is pretty much set. It has to be long enough to span the entire screen. Go with something at least 1200 pixels wide.
A width of 1200 covers all. The image I'm using on this page is 5 x 1200 pixels. That's pretty long and thin..
I attached your background image, but have reduced the height. it's now 14px. This will load quicker..
You are going to have the repeat at some resolutions as long as it is a 2-sided background image. Do you know what I mean by that? Each side is a mirror image and faces the center..
With a single-edged background, you can either have it at 1200 or bigger, as he suggests above, or set the color of the background of your page to be the same as the edge of your background image, and tile the background image only vertically, and not across. I'm attaching a 2nd image that is made from the left edge of your background...
For one, that sites background is a color, not an image. he specifies a background but it is not working as the image is not on the server and is not loading..
The only way to fix it is to make the background smaller, period..
If you make a background 1000 pixels wide, which is what his background is, it will be way big for a 15" monitor...
Stop talking about monitor and talk about screen resolution!!.
My 15' is at 1024x768 and.
My 17' is at 1280x1024 and sometime at 1600x1200.
My 12' laptop screen only go at 800x600!!.
Maybe instead having a page background, you could have 2 table cell background each side of your content.....
If you have a 15" montor set to 1024x768 than man that is small, how can you see it? generally most 15" monitors are set to 640x480, and sometimes at 800x600, but 1024 is way to small for the size monitor. but yes you do have a point, it all depends on the resolution...
Scoutt, i'm sorry if it sounds as if I was stepping on you, but I was trying to suggest solutions to not have it repeat..
The background image is loaded, and is set in the head in the styles section which is loaded; in the body, the background color is set for #ffffff, and the image that is not loading right now is the one that originally had the menu links etc, and is 750x600..
Yes, the center section of the background.gif (the gray/white image) is too big for small resolutions; the white section alone is 740 or so, and with that background image on an 800 resolution, not much of the background color is going to show...just mostly white with a bit of darker gray at the edges..
The repeat though is going to happen with a 1024 resolution (or bigger), because background.gif right now is only 1003 px wide, and that leaves 21 more pixels and the image will repeat horizontally to fill up that space..
Cere, here is another article on making background images:.
And attached is a file to make a page using the 2nd image I attached up above, background.left gif. See what that looks like. As it is to stop the repeat and to make the background image look good in small and big resolutions, you're going to have to change the image somehow depending on the look you want..
I hope I was more clear this time, and that I'm not adding more confusion...
No worries, but the image is 1003so it is not repeating anywhere. just down after 600 pixels. the problem is when you resize the page the middle image goes right and the background stays put..
That is what I seen anyway...
I think I got the answer , just add this chunk :.
Bummm.... , it works....
Many many thanks for your attention......
Like Aboveaverage point out, you don't need your background to be that big!! since it's the same patern all the way down, you just need a few pixel height to produce the same result and have a smaller size (600 to 15 = 40 times)!.
And your image has a small white line at the bottom right, pretty big when you have it 4 times in your screen!!.
Well it could also be only 1 pixel height!! test it and it produce the same result.
So instead of having a 5.35kb image file, you have a 0.16kb file!..
Not to change the subject, but I had a monitor with a viewing size of 13 inches and had it on 1024x768. I could see it fine. Maybe it's because you're old scoutt..
