    Layer Resizing in Browser

    Hi Guys

    I have a client's website which works great in full screen but if you make the browser window smaller, everything resizes except the Javascript Menu which is sitting in a Layer in the top left corner. Obviously when the window is made smaller in the browser the menu stays the same size and sits over the text.

    The site is :

    Anyone have any ideas on how to get the JS to resize down to the window size????

    Haven't gone code diving into this yet, but could you put it inside the left div?

    Hi Eric

    Thanks for the response! For some reason Namo WebEditor insists that the JavaScript Menu is on a layer and the layer does not resize if you make the browser window smaller. (I cannot fathom out why anyone would want to browse a website with a tiny browser window anyway!!! I always browse full screen!)

    There is a solution of course and that will be to make the table a fixed pixel size so it fills a screen running at say 1440x 900 BUT then you will get a smaller page on a bigger monitor (my 22" runs at 1680) and you would also have to scroll on anything lower than 1440!

    It wedding season in this part of the world and I'm far to busy shooting happy couples to worry about someone's nit-picking for the moment!!

    Make the menu column fixed and the other column auto-fill the remainder.

    Thanks Eric

    I actually found that the editor changes the tables if you change your monitor resolution!! I made this site a while ago on a CRT monitor with a 1024x768 resolution and everyone was happy. I added a 22" LCD monitor later and, of course, changed the resolution to 1680x1050 and Namo WebEditor promptly made the left cell much smaller AND would NOT allow me to resize it..if you dragged it, it just jumped back!!

    I changed the minitor res back to 1024x768 and everything was OK again!!

    Thanks guys!!

    You are incorrectly using tables for layout purposes, but I'm sure you already know that.

    I would also suggest that you ditch "Nemo WebEditor", because it would seem that its rather useless. It would also seem that your doctype declaration is missing, which could potentially course a lot of rendering problems.

    All you really need, is to apply a min-width to the page, or the table itself. Can be done by using the CSS min-width property.

    You should also consider if you really need that JavaScript, the usage of scripts on your page is massive!

    Finally the code itself is just a mess. But that may very well be the result from a poor WYSIWYG editor, or incorrect usage of same.

    I'd suggest vi or notepad...
