Mary, Sorry not to answer all your questions! It fills my screen, but the right hand side is white where there should be text. I think it only happens with the Home page.

Hey Brian I seriously think it would be best if you took a screenshot and posted it. That way we can all see whats going on with you, and we can help out.

Robi, I'm afraid I don't have the vaguest idea how to do a "screen Shot". I am missing the right quarter of the page top to bottom. Just a white strip where there should be text and pictures. I'll be back Sunday night to see everyone's answers. Thanks!

Hi Brian,
To do a screen shot, open the page in question, then hit the button that says "Print Screen" on your keyboard. Located above the 6 keys that have Insert, Home, Page Up, Delete, End and Page Down.
Now you will have a picture on your clipboard.
Then you can paste it into almost any program (i.e., wordpad, word, etc.) and then let us see the file as an attachment.

I certainly cannot understand the missing text. Meanwhile, I have been in discussion about the sizing thing with my tech guy. He says the industry standard is 700 pixels, but if I want to I could make it 100%. There could be problems with the overall layout, however, if I change the template.
Next week I might have some time to play around with it and see what happens.
Stand by for a crash! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

This is the Home Page I get: Missing Right side.

Hope this helps.

I noticed you are using MSN explorer. Does it occur with Internet Explorer as well?

Dartfast,
Yes, that helps a lot! Thank you! That must be what Brian is talking about, too.

That is totally different from having the whole page but just narrower.

Very weird. And not good.

The site has always had the width set to 700 pixles. This was set to fit most standard screen width of 800x600 or greater. The 700 width is also the total width of the catsailor logo and rotating banners across the top.

It is odd how that msn browser is cutting the page off. Does it cut the following page off:

http://www.catsailor.com/test_index.html

That test page is set to 100% width.

The Hotlink http://www.catsailor.com/test_index.html does not cut the right side of the page off. It shows a full screen of the page but eliminates the right side bar that Verizon DSL has for quick links to; Inbox/Messenger/appointments/stocks/weather.

Must not be the browser. This is a screen shot using my Yahoo browser. Still missing the right side. It has always been that way even on a different computer and a different service. Thought everyone saw it that way.

The Yahoo browser is probably just using the Internet Explorer rendition engine.
Firefox has an independent engine, download Firefox at http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

I do NOT have that problem...I've checked with both Internet Explorer (6.0) and Firefox.

The problem occurs with IE based browsers when using an increased text size.

It seems to be caused by the search form at the top of the page pushing the ad too far to the right. As a quick fix, you can use a fixed size font for the search form (see attachment).
