Subject: screen resolution!
I have written a website in PHP using MYSQL. But I have come
accross an un-common problem. Normally when I create a website
it's done on a desktop PC. But this time for the first time I did
it on laptop meaning the screen resolution is different.
Is there any sort of script/code I can use to create another
section of my site in a desired screen resolution without me having
to do it all manually?
I would really recommend that screen size / resolution detection is
no longer the way forward. It's perfectly possible to use CSS +/-
XHTML correctly to have the page reflow without all the stylesheet
switching hacks that would be required in the 'old school' (read :
1999) way of doing things.
You'd need to use structural markup rather than try to 'force to fit'
with tables etc, but it's entirely possible to generate flexible
layouts that can display on any device, even a PDA, without screen
size detection. Search engines like sematic layout too, and your menu
for example may not be the first thing they or a screen reader
encounters in the page - though it may *appear* at the top of the
page due to CSS telling it where to be displayed.
Here are some links for you to consider : all are worth reading and
digesting from end to end.
I know of many scripts online that I can DETERMINE visitors
screen resolutions and recommend the
supports that detection.
And bear in mind, many users *may not wish* to have their browser
maximised just to view your site.
