Hi,

I'm finishing up a site and I need to adjust the screen size, it has to scale to fit different screen sizes, without changing background image file.

The site loads a bit slow as well so any suggestions to fix that would be great too.

I've attached the code and here's a link to the site: danielleduganyoga.com
CSS:body { 
background-repeat:no-repeat;
background-position:center;
background-size: auto;

}

#wrapper{
margin-top:20px;
background-repeat:no-repeat;
width:1000px;
height:940px; 
}

#indexlogo { 
padding-left:300px;
}

#indexnav{ padding-top:130px;
} 

#logo{ 
padding-left:175px; 
padding-top:25px;
}

#nav {
padding-top:0px;
}

#box1{
padding-top:5px;
}

#box2sch{
padding-top:10px;
padding-left:150px;
width:380px;
margin-left:5px;
float:left;
}

#box2text{
padding-top:75px;
width:700px;
}
#footer{
position:relative;
top:15px;
}
#indexfooter{
padding-top:790px;
}/* CSS Document */

 You can scale the site in flash, but not in html, you should design your website for some minimum width, then it will be displayed properly for bigger width too, 1024px is recommended as minimum, this width is also compatible with iPad.
  There is possible to prepare site for different resolutions using JavaScript and/or different Css stylesheets, but nobody do this, doesn't make sense really.
  Don't use <center> tag, is very old way to center the content, you should use 'margin:0 auto;' in your css to do this.
  To make the website loading faster, try compress the images.

Hi Zado,

Thanks for the info. The width is fine actually, its matter of the height really, which makes me think there isn't a way to change it without adjust the background images.

What do you mean by compressing the images?

The only way to adjust the height is change your background images (if you want do this, but I would stay with current design instead changing everything because the height), then you can nicely center whole content horizontally and vertically, check this:
http://www.wpdfd.com/editorial/thebox/deadcentre4.html
check source code to see how it works.

By compressing the images I meant use your graphic program to reduce colours in your gifs or save backgrounds as jpg and then reduce quality, just try few different ways to see what's the best result for quality/size
