With new title "COMPETITIONS" in first line "ACCOUNT" title is gone in second line. I am using Chrome and now this title is out of blue box. This is not look nice.

I was affraid this might happen to users with lower screen resolutions.

I think the only solution at the moment is to make the font size for the navigation smaller.

Though I personally think the navigation system needs to be re-designed, along with a few (or a lot) of other elements of the website.

Isn't it a generally accepted web design rule to design everything for 800x600?
Bikerman
It used to be. I think there is a new de-facto standard which is 1024768, and quite a few people now write for 720p (1280720).

I thought there was a way that one could accommodate all screen sizes? I.e. design it to expand to all the sizes?

The Website below is one of many that gives some guidelines how to do it:
http://www.entheosweb.com/website_design/advanced_web_design.asp

I'm not a Website design specialist, however when I had to design one for work, designed it in a Table format, and then managed to set the properties for the Table to fit all screen sizes.
Bikerman
You can (by using percentages for example) but the trouble is that it isn't supported the same on all browsers so you run the risk of it not working properly for some.

I don't have a 21 inch screen, and I choose to use a lower resolution so the small text on some web pages is readable. It would be desirable if a web server could tailor the output somewhat to the resolution of the window the page is being displayed on.

I'm not sure if the browser identity string includes resolution, but if not javascript could surely adjust some elements to fit better on a smaller window. In the case of the Frihost menu, it seems that using a bit smaller font if the window was a little too narrow and expanding the background to two lines if it was even narrower would do the job.

I'm not sure if it would be practical to use such methods with most pages. I would prefer it if most web pages were designed to look well at 800 X 600 and the exceptional cases adjusted for smaller resolutions, but I realize it's easier for the designer to just go with what looks good on her system.

I'll make the font size smaller, especially since GAMES will be added too. And afterwards it will be redesigned anyway.

This sounds interesting Bondings. Does this mean that Frihost may be getting a facelift one of these days?

Deleting the height property of the div .top2 should do the trick I think. Smile

It takes some time to design and code a good website. Smile

I am using 1024768 resolution, and I think this is new standard. Adri find simple solution, maybe better then smaller font if is two lines OK for design.

I've done that, thanks for the tip. I hope it doesn't cause any problems in other browsers (like IE), though.

Account is still on the second line. Can the fonts be made smaller perhaps? Smile

Yeah that's normal but that wasn't the problem actually. The problem was that if you saw the "Account" link on the second line, it was out of the blue box. But that should be fixed now. Smile

OK, I get it now, I seem to recall that it looked a bit weird under the box, but it is in the box now. Probably good that the Account has its own line now, as I seem to recall just after I joined, that I was completely unaware of the Account link, and when I was referred to it, not sure where to get it. Now one can't help but notice it. Smile

In Chrome is OK now! Very Happy

Thank you for providing that link Deanhills bookmarked it for future reference, one never knows, since these things do capture the interest, and sure we computer users can all agree on this.

Super cool G A M E sounds like fun! We can have fun here in Frihost right?

Arrow The top looks ok in my browser with Account on the bottome except perhaps the bullet could be brought down in front of Account instead of uptop behind Competitions as it looks to me right now.
Bondings
I'll make the font smaller so they should fit on one line unless for really small screen sizes. Unfortunately there are other sections planned, like the games, that also will need space. By the way, the staff also has one extra already so it's even worse for us.

It seems like the ACCOUNT link isn't very clear. A lot of people don't seem to notice or frequently use it unfortunately. I'll try to find some ways to draw more attention towards it. The same for other things that might require more attention, like sending a pm to new users (and improving the welcome email) and notifying users of important stuff (like negative points in red colour, new pm/awit, ...).

Finally, @Bluedoll, about the games, yes they are planned and will hopefully be fun. It will mostly be strategy/arcade type of games, in flash. It might take a while before the first one is finished, though.
LittleBlackKitten
If you set the "font-size: 100%;" to thus, it will be in the browser for everyone, no matter the resolution - just have to apply it to the CSS controlling the Global Nav Bar.
