I just opened your webpage on my 15" Win10 laptop and the pics were still out of bounds. It makes it so hard to read that I wouldn't follow the website. On the very positive side, the type face, size, and color selection are very good. It makes reading very easy.

Please continue with your good work,
LeRoy

Thanks LeRoy, I appreciate the feedback.
There are some dotted margins for me to follow to adhere to the screen size parameters. When I edited it 10 minutes after posting, I made sure I was within the lines.
I am wondering why it is out for you... All I can think of is that perhaps your laptop runs at a lower resolution than most.
Do you know what res it runs at?
I will do whatever I can to make sure it works on all devices.
Hitting F5 will reload it to the latest changes too.

Thanks.


How do I determine resolution? "Do you know what res it runs at?"

Right click on your desktop, no programs open, then select Display Settings"
A few items down it will say Display Resolution"

My 17" Win 10 laptop runs at 1920 X 1080. This is likely why I had it so far out of whack the first time. It looked perfect on my screen!

Bob it fits good and looks good, on my 10" Lenovo android tablet, resolution is 1920×1200 using landscape mode,
I haven't checked it on my 17" HP laptop
But I know it's only 1440 wide, and the site as is, will be too wide and require side to side scrolling
LaptoPS TVs and pc displays, are physically huge compared to tablets and phones, tend to be higher structural quality, and pricy , and replaced less often, so that many of these items , remain in use for many years, and consequently have lower resolutions than most tablets and phones
A 1400 ? Wide webpage will reduce side scrolling for most users and still look good on smaller devices that have higher resolutions,

You can have higher resolution pictures resized ôr displayed at lower resolution and enlarge to original resolution when clicked on by a viewer

This is a great idea. I'll be following.
The information will be helpful for current members doing a rebuild or repairs on their rig.
And, we often see new members who bought a unit that needs work. A video about rebuilding/restoring will help someone decide if they want to attempt the project.
Keep up the good work!

It looks fine on my 27" Monitors at 2560x1440 and the laptop's 17" screen at 1920x1080. On my phone, a Motorola One 5G-UW, the photos look fine stacked one after the other, but the font size should be smaller.

One of the challenges I am facing is finding a happy medium that works on most devices.
All the newer ones have a much higher screen resolution, which makes all the difference in the world. I would hazard a guess that the average person doesn't really understand screen resolution and what it does. Change to 640X480 and it will be way off the screen, forcing side scroll. But then take my 17" laptop that I am building this thing on at 1920 X 1080 and everything looks small with lots of excess room on the sides.

There is a setting in the Wix software where I build the site in normal desktop view, and stay within the suggested boundaries they have in the work area and it should format properly to most devices.

There is a further setting to format it for mobile so it will work on phones and tablets.
But what I don't know here is how it determines if you are on a desktop, be it a PC or Mac, or if you are on an ipad or a phone. Somehow it gets determined by the device I guess. Some sites I visit have a button click here for mobile.

You shouldn't have to side scroll to see any site - that is very annoying!

Last night I fixed the vertically stacked text that says Coming Soon. I opened it on my phone and it reverted back to the way it was. I'm sure I saved and published it... I just re-did it again.

You mentioned the pics and the sizes. I will look at that too. I didn't pay a lot of attention to it when I first set it up. One of the many things I have to refine. But the picture of the old trailer is a huge crop of a larger one, and it is saved as only a 77K file, at 640X477, small. I cannot find the original pic at 1.5 megs or whatever it was.

Thank you for your input. It really helps! [emoticon]

I will keep playing with it and tweaking the settings etc.

Thanks for the suggestion.
I reduced the font size on all the bottom text.
I left the header alone.

If you refresh your screen it should be smaller now. Don't want to make it too small so some need a magnifying glass to read it too!! [emoticon]
