My site (www.pindaal.com) is depended on style sheet template/theme and it is viewed best in 1024x768  resolution. When it is opened in 800x600 settings right side bar is not viewed. Kindly opne it in both resolution.

Now I want to ask that in which place I hav to edit, i.e. do I edit style sheet file or what? I want that my site is best viewed in both resolution or atleast in 800x600.

This is ultimately controlled by the stylesheet, yes.  Glancing at it briefly I see quite a few fixed widths given to elements (in px, even -- most of those should at least be given in em).  To fit in an 800x600 window the widths of elements across the screen will naturally have to sum to less than 800.

Alternatively you could remove the absolute widths and either use percentages (so a certain element is a percentage of the total available width) or give widths to only some elements so that others can be sized by the browser.

Well that's really up to you.  I'd suggest playing with any of the values that look like...

width: 400px;


... until you've got something you like.

If you're using Firefox you may find it helpful to have the WebDev toolbar installed, as it has a feature to easily edit stylesheets while looking at the page.


I can't tell you what design you'll think looks good.  (-:

i want that the width of my site should be contained in 800px, so kindly tell which tag shud be edited. If you see my website in 800x600 resolution, u will notice that right sidebar is not contained in the screen.

If you're using ccs layout then you'll need a div immediately inside the body tag that contains all of your content...

<body>
  <div id="layout">
    Content here
  </div>
</body>


Then create a new style rule..

#layout
{
  width:771px;
}


If your're using tables to layouyt the site then replace the <div mentioned above with>

<body>
  <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="771" height="100%">
    <tr>
        <td valign="top">
            Content goes here...
        </td>
    </tr>
  </table>
<body>
