Hello All,

I need help with my page, it was designed at for viewing in 800x600 res and if someone's browser is at 1024 my page doesn't fill up the screen. How can I get around this?


Here is my page http://www.carshowdepot.com it works great in 800 res but if I change my screen setting to 1024x the page won't fill up the screen.

Can someone tell me how to fix this so it work in full screen on both 800 and 1024?

Thanks for any help!

Your page should never really be wider than 780 pixels. The best solution, which it seems like you did, is to create a 780 pixel-wide div tag, which contains all of your content. People are used to seeing websites that don't fill up the screen. Especially with the colored background, I think your site looks great.

Then I shouldn't worry about it. It is true, most people do see website being smaller especially if there screen is at 1024. Then again alot of people have screen res at 800..
