I'm doing a quick poll and I'll let it run over the weekend.

I want to see what the majority of our users are using - as I can widen the content part of the site so we can see more left to right.

I see too many of the subjects bunching up on two lines and I think we would look better spread out a little bit Smile


Cheers,
Erika

PC here running 600 x 800. Am I not at the proper resolution?

The site only takes up half my screen! If it can be made a little wider and still fit on everyone's monitors that would be great.

There's no "proper" resolution Smile It's a personal preference type thing ...

It's just if I can increase the width a bit, and make sure no one loses anything - then it'll be a good thing!! Smile

So I just wanted to see a show of hands to see who is using what ...


Cheers,
Erika

I am using an iMac and the resolution is set to the highest available setting, 1024x768. This site's content is currently using roughly 2/3rds of my screen's width.

OK. I made a small adjustment.

Those at 800x600 won't see too much of a change, but for those of us at higher resolutions, it fills more of the screen without jeopardizing the content too much.

For the forum, it works beautifully - it's just the wrapping of content around pictures in other areas of the site where it can get a little freaky looking. Which is why many sites stick to a fixed width.

Let me know how you like/dislike the change Smile

Erika

Erika,

The office flat screen is 800 x 600.

Do you want me to advise both the home computers,too?

Works well for the forum, and other pages are much less cramped looking - although as you say some other pages do look a little freaky now in terms of photo/text placement, and big gaps (like front page). I like the way the content blocks look on the front page now, ie a bigger contrast to the main text area, only that now looks a little 'bald', and the pic doesn't fill enough space. I've been uploading photos recently to a specific size to work on places like the front page - might need to chat further with you about things like this once you get more feedback from others..........if I change things to look good on a larger screen (ie what I'm seeing), will it affect those viewing in 800x600?

Yeah, it could, so be careful .. the best thing I can suggest is when you are making the changes, take a look at it in 800x600 mode via the PREVIEW PAGE link in the back office. That should give you a good representation. Smile

Nah, you don't need to - just let us know if anything looks bad to you after the changes I just made. Smile

Erika - just so you know - resolution of my main monitor is 1440 x 900 - which is why it looked a little spaced out after the changes.

Also tried looking at the site on another machine which is 1024 x 768 and the site looks fine there, definitely an improvement IMO.

The latest adjustments look great on my monitor! The forum is now expanded to fill about 7/8th's of my available screen width versus only 2/3rd's before.
