Because we're planning some future tweaks to the site, I'd like to know what resolutions you guys are running at. Currently, the main part of the site is set for those running 800x600 and higher, but on larger resolutions, it can look as if the information is set down the center of the screen.

We've widened the forum to accomidate for some of the larger image attachments already, but there are still some tweaks here and there that can be done to make everything more uniform.

Thanks for your time...

why not set the table widths be set to 100% of the browser window so it stretches to fit the users window?

then you don't have to worry about widths at all?

I run at 1280x960 so that my images aren't distorted when displayed elsewhere.

i have mine set at 1280x1024... BUT, i absolutely hate maximizing my browser to read crap... not to mention if i print something.. AH! when images dont take up space, and theres nothing else "expanding" the page, why should i have to MAXIMIZE to read something. i hate it. scaaaaaaaaalable.

why not use expandable - just set the table to be a % instead of a true pixel width.

1152x870, but I never fill the screen with the browser window.

I'm voting with the people who say make it scalable. That's the only way to make everyone happy.

it seems no one is listening mastermesh!

in it's simplest form . . .

<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td></td>
</tr>
</table>

Then it makes no difference what sized screen people have!

3200x1024 (1600x1024 per monitor)

I agree with the comments about using browser % widths. It makes things cleaner for everyone...

Also, in the vein of site tweaks, I know on the newtek site, if someone posts a screenshot that is, say 3200pix wide, every reply is 3200pix wide, which makes for difficult reading...

On cgtalk.com, for example, only the replies that have images wider than the browser extend past the browser, so it makes reading a lot easier. Since newtek uses the same BB software, could you possibly tweak that? I'm sure if you talked to the admins at cgtalk, they may be able to point you in the right direction... :)

What happened with the image size was that someone moaned about it being too small. I say 1024x786 is large enugh for a screen grab/posted image.

I agree that a specific image size is good, but on www.cgtalk.com, this need is negated by allowing an individual post in a thread to have a really large image, but keep other posts contained in the original framework of the browser...

here's an example...
(make your new browser window about 800 pix wide)

http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=58786

You'll see that although the extremely wide images extend well past the 800 pix limit, the subsequent replies all stay within the constraints of the browser, so that one doesn't need to keep scrolling left and right to read replies.

I figured that since Newtek used the same software, it shouldn't be too difficult to set things up that way in the BB software configs :)
