View Full Version : Layout alignment?

02-08-2011, 01:52 PM
How do I do this? I want to make it so that no matter what size screen you're viewing my the page, the layour always stays in place and doesn't become out of order. What is that called and what is the code/how do I do this tutorial? Thanks

Hi Schmitty83

Not really sure I understand the question. It is too broad as making a stable layout IS web design! Can you be more specific about your particular problem and maybe post a link if you can?

I figure out how to do it by placing ap divs on the spots of the page, they stay in place with the layout when i zoom in or out so now my question becomes: If I drew an ap div the size of the page, and place my main menu as the background image inside of the div, how can I draw image hot spots on top of the ap div? It won't let me. If you look at my page which I added a link above, you'll see that the main sections of the page "Music "Store" etc. aren't links. Those sections are part of my main ap div I drew and place an image in. I want to put hot spots on top of theose so they can become links.

Cancel that last post about the hot spot. Back to my original post, what i'm trying to do is make it no matter what computer you're viewing the page on, it will stay the same dimensions and not overlap. For instance, if you look at the page now, and zoom out, everything stays in place BUT the main bar at the top with the menu in it (page links, twitter logo) I'm not fluent in HTML or CSS. My classes taught me more of the design of graphic design and nothing about html or css. Is there a code I acn just add to the html that will do this automatially? Am I making my problem more understandable?

Yes, I understand what you are saying but there isn't an automatic code or anything that sorts it. You need to understand how to use HTML and CSS to make a layout and how page flow works with normal divs. Absolutely positioned divs take their co-ords from the top left of the screen. Move the screen or change the screen resolution and that point changes and all your measurements go to pot.

Time to get the basics down dude; http://htmldog.com/guides/cssbeginner/
