Hey!

Are there any services available that take screen shots of your site on different resolutions and show them what it looks like on them? ie. Site that has problems with wide screen could be easier modified by seeing what it looks like to fix the problem after each step. I do not have a wide screen monitor and the solution to this problem is not me getting one =)

Thanks in advance.
:thumbsup:

This one's really good but I don't think you can request widescreen-- you can only specify the x-width... but that should be good enough I would think.

You should also be able to set your computer's resolution to something that estimates the resolution that is giving you trouble...

You can do this on IE via Developer Tools. I assume Firebug has a utility for it too.

I'm pretty sure that the web-developer addon for Firefox (http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/) has a really simple option for changes in resolution. Although I think it only goes to 800x600.

Ironically; the toolbar didn't work on my resolution.

You can add you own resolutions at free will.

There is also www.browsercam.com

They offer a free 24 hour trial with a valid email address and their turn around is maybe 30 minutes or so.

Testing your site at different resolutions is VERY important. A friend of mine changed his blog theme and I noticed I couldn't read part of it. We emailed back and worth for a day on what browser and version I was using vs his and trying different things. It turns out it was the resolution. He fixed it, but it was that was for many days before I saw it and told him, and he wonders how many visitors thought his blog was messed up.
So always check different resolutions!

Yeah indeed. :)
It is quite easy to forget the various wide screen resolutions.
(learned that the hard way).
