Hi everyone,

I'm working on my page www.thestinkyknight.com and I'm using Dreamweaver CS3.

On my and girlfriend's laptop the site looks good (Fits within the screen no scrolling), At work and on my home comptuter it looks less good (You need to scroll).

Both our laptops run IE 8, My old home Pc runs I.E 6 and has a wide screen at work it's I.E 7. does anyone have a idea how I could make my Iframe and elements fluid so they would adapt to the people's screens and resolution?

I read in a other forum to make a frame a 100% but as you can see in I.E 7 my element just busted out of the frame.

I appreciate any help.:thumbsup:

How annoying. It re-sized my browser to full-screen.

I didn't even realised it did that. At work I'm using IE 7 and I can open it in a windowed at work. maybe one of my experiments to have the elements fluid is causing this?

But would there be a way for everything on the webpage to resize automaticly to the user's page?

There is much help here (http://www.exitfegs.co.uk/Sources.html).
Use the search box to find liquid layouts.

That seems to be what you need.

This is one choice. (http://www.maxdesign.com.au/articles/liquid/)
