CSS positioning and Screen Resolution

  • # March 26, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    Okay, I am having a major problem here. First, I am quite new to CSS, so I’ve been fiddling around with the codes planning out my layout. I think it’s coming out quite nicely, so I’ve decided to have a look at my layout on my laptop. And Argh! It looks okay, but the layout is shifted all the way to the right when it appears.. well slightly centered on my desktop. So I’ve realised I’ve encountered a bit of a resolution issue. The screen resolution on my desktop is: 1920 x1080 but the resolution on my laptop is 1366 x 768.

    I would like for my layout to fit any resolution if possible. I’ve tried searching for the answer but nothing really helped.

    Here is the link to my test page and the following code:








    /*CSS BELOW = NAVIGATION*/

    A few notes.

    Don’t put your content in tables.

    Don’t use the element (it doesn’t exist, use

    instead.

    And don’t position elements so that it’s 500 pixels from the left (this is why it looks like that on your laptop). Instead, remove all the styles from content and change it to this:

    margin:10px auto;
    width:700px;

    It won’t give you a perfect, finished web site, but should get you started. Good luck!
