Page all over the show

Mar 1, 2010 10:28 AM

My new website, www.portobelloroad.org.uk, looks OK in IE7, Safari and Firefox.  However, I saw it today on a Dell monitor, and ait was all over the show.. Just not what it should be.

 

Any reason for this? It even looks OK on my little Acer notebook

    Hi

     

    The problem is probably caused by using absolute positioning for almost everything on the page, see - http://forums.adobe.com/thread/477969.

    Hi

     

    It is probably because the dell system is set to a different resolution than the others.

    Update: when I view with firefox at full screen, the layout breaks, indicating a problem with the use of absolute positioning.

    Thanks for your comment.  However, the page behaves OK in IE, Safari and Firefox

     

    It doesn't behave well for me in Firefox.

     

    >Could it be a problem wirh Dell' monitor, rather than my code?

     

    The problem does not have anything to do with your monitor. It's related to the viewport width and your use of AP divs as a primary layout method. Karl, we've been telling you for years that you should not use AP Divs as a primary layout so I'm not sure why you are surprised about this.
