Blog Design and Monitor Resolutions

26th March 2006

I received a comment from a reader about having trouble reading my blog due to pictures getting in the way of the text. I assume this is due to my new blog design that includes a sidebar on both sides of the text as well as his or her monitor size and resolution.

I knew the new design would be better viewed with 17′ monitors with higher resolutions, but I figured it would affect few readers. While the vast majority of my readers use monitors with resolutions of at least 1024 x 768, there are still 12-13% who are viewing the blog on monitors with resolutions of 800 x 600. If you are one of those individuals, please let me know how the blog looks and whether viewing it is a problem with the new design. I will seek to rectify the problem as soon as possible.

Any and all comments are welcome!

    I am using 800×600, and the posts currently on the front page all fit fine together: the sidebar material is not “elbowing in” on the center column.

    I get some oddball stuff in the Hebrew text, but that’s likely because I’m using archaic browser-versions.

    Thanks for remembering us 12-13%-ers!

    I used a neat feature on my Firefox toolbar to view it 800×600 looks fine, though at lower resolutions (if e.g. you have a bookmarks column on the left of the screen) it begins to be problematic. Your design seems to cope with different screen resolutions better than most!
