Is there a way to adjust my webpage size to viewer's screen size?


Recommended Posts

This is probably a goofy sounding question and I don't think I'm posting in the proper category, but I don't know where else to ask.

I suspect it involves javascript, or more, none of which I know much about, but I don't know where to look for the answer.


My laptop is a Compaq CQ56, I think it's a 15.6" screen, but I'm sure it's 1366 x 768 px.

When I send a link to a page to my Mom that fits my screen, the width is cut short on her's. I believe her's is 1024 x 768.


Is there a way to compensate for this?


As I said, I sure I'm in the wrong forum but I've wondered about this for some time and wasn't sure where to start.


Thanks for your advice, keytone

Make it fluid by using percentage instead of fixed width, then set a max-width: and min-width: so it won't shrink or extend beyond these settings OR just make so it fit your mom's screen, which is the bare minimum screen width to work to.


Usually for a 1024 width resolution, and allowing for scrollbar the width should be around 960 - 1000 pixels.
