Help guys!

I'm working on a new layout for my wife's website. All looks pretty good (IMHO) EXCEPT the border on the iPhone. The border covers the entire page not just the "right_content" DIV like it's supposed to.

I've tried for several days to figure it out and I can't figure it out, I need help. I even tried throwing things way and starting over, so I'm probably making the same mistake over & over.

Any other suggestions are welcome!

Thanks,
David

if i use firefox in windows 7 this is the message i get in my browser:
Forbidden

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Now I understand your message a little better though I do not understand why you are getting it.

I had 3 friends open it with no trouble and all are using Firefox on a Windows 7 machine. One also used his smartphone and told me of several "errors" in my design that he saw.

As soon as I address those (probably Monday) I will re-upload everything and ask you if you still get the error. Maybe by then I'll find my original problam.

Thanks!

That my friend is one cool tool!

That is not exactly what I see on screen but WOW is it helpful. Talking with a friend who's a thousand miles away, that's what he sees on his Samsung Galaxy.

I had a mistake on the form border that caused it to extend vertically around all the text but I found (and fixed) that error. Now this too has show me more errors....thanks......I think?

I'll leave it open and hope I remember what it's for tomorrow.

I really appreciate this link, it has help me a lot.

Though I'm not finished with the "phone" design yet, it looks like my DW screen and like my friends Galaxy S5.

I have two problems that I still don't understand and could use some help on.



The iPad on there looks only remotely like my DW. The 2 "boxes" near the bottom are sized to 100% of the width with no flat. When I use this iPad viewer it looks like both boxes are less than 50% with a left float.
Can I make a Div (the slideshow) invisible (the "phone" view)?

I solved that problem thanks to a DW Tutorial on this site...THANKS!!!

I went to BLOCK and set DISPLAY to NONE and that works for me.
