    Shrinking problem (all files provided)

    Nablenpage.com

    About me: I am a self-taught website programmer and have some knowlege of what i am doing, but mostly i am learning as i go. I have used W3schools.com and many forums for all that i know.

    My problem:
    When you shrink my webpage, objects will fold apon themselfs and shift around, rather then being fixed together and simply disapering off screen and having a scroll bar on the bottem of the screen.


    All my index/pictures/css files here (my webpage files):
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=EW9CKNJ9
    Hopefully you can diagnose the problem and feel free to fix the code and re-up it so i can download.
    Its 9.7 kb/s so you dont need to worry about viruses, besides why would i hurt someone trying to help me?

    If you need any more information or files contact me at runaway404@yahoo.com

    And if its really an easy fix, i apologize ahead of time, i simply dont know where to start diagnosing the problem.

    When you put your email and a download, less people are willing to help you.

    For starters... can you upload your site to an actual host (so we don't have to download/upload to our own). That would be great. There are plenty of free hosts if you don't have hosting... If you can't do that just post the code.


    And my first guess: float problem...
    Your site better validate and not be using a table layout.

    Just a suggestion, but you might get more response if you hosted the site and people just clicked a link to see the problem. Then if someone knows what it is, they'll chime in. I think that's kind of the point that twodayslate was making.

    If you want a free host, try freehostia.com. You'll have your site up in about 5 minutes. I use them because there is no ad forced on you and therefore you can check validation (Godaddy free sites suck).

    A decent free ftp client is Core FTP if you prefer to use ftp.

    Edit: Okay, so I downloaded your file, but it's a PHP file and I don't have a server on this computer. Sorry, I can't help you even though I wanted to.

    Exactly.
    FTP: FireZilla
    Editor: Notepad++
    Host: DreamHost (paid but I can give you a promo code) Sorry, couldn't help it... :P
    Free Host: There are some in the list I have compiled here: http://twodayslate.wordpress.com/web/hosting/ Any free host will work - just make it temporary if you are serious about your work.

    Hello nablen,
    Sorry I didn't post anything when I downloaded your code 3hours ago...
    It's tables though, as soon as I saw tables I deleted it all. Check the link in my sig about tables.

    Anyway, try this:
    Code:
    <center>
    <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="1000">
    	<tbody><tr height="5%">
    		<td id="topleft" width="5%">
    		</td><td id="mid" width="10%">
    		<a href="http://xyz.freelogs.com/stats/n/nablen/" target="_top"><img alt="hit counter dreamweaver" src="http
    Not sure if that's the proper way to set a width on tables but that's what you need to do to stop it from shrinking with the screen - specify a width. Just grabbed 1000 randomly, edit that number to suit your needs.

    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
