What screen resolution do you view nelsap.org on? 800X600? Higher? Lower?

Jonni and I are doing some redesign work and appreciate your input.

Most people have their resolution set at 1024 x 768. However, my web teacher says that you're not supposed to design websites just for that resolution, stick with the 800 x 600 resolution or use percentages for the tables so it will kind of look the same.

I've heard the same thing from all my web professors as well. But we are just trying to get an idea of how our general audience (you all) views NELSAP.org

1024x768 at work
1280x1024 at home

The news of a redesign is most welcome. I highly recommend databasing almost everything--photos, ski area name, town, state, operating dates, and other stats and stories. When the groundwork is laid, you'll be able to make your updates so much easier and from anywhere.

I bet a lot of people viewing at lower resolution don't know what screen resolution is so they won't respond.

I'm using a dial-up connection. So, I'm more concerned about loading time, rather than about screen resolution.

Yup...you've got one of those here! What key do I hit to find out?

If you are using Windows XP as your operating system, right click on an open area of your desktop, and select properties from the menu that appears. After clicking on "settings" another menu will appear, simply select "settings" and your there.


BTW, my settings are 1024x768 for my desktop and 1280x800 for my laptop

That's understandable. I'm very concerned about the loading time of the site. When we get the new sub-pages up it will be easier to navigate the site, but it should still load pretty quickly.

I suggest designing for 800 x 600. As we skiers age, we'll need the large-print format.

Jeremy as a web developer I would suggest that your resolution be sizeable. That said, according to w3schools, 1024x768 is the sweet spot:

http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

Another tip would be to keep your page on the narrow side regardless of client resolution. This limits the users scrolling to up-down and prevents scrolling from side to side. I HATE websites that I have to scroll off to the right to view content.

Yeah, why does that happen when people post a number of photos?

Another idea I have (the first was databasing all the photos and text) is to provide a comments and photo upload section on each NELSAP area page. That way, readers' reflections and photos could be instantly updated. Jeremy wouldn't feel the pressure of those e-mails piling up as the information would already be on the site in the "instant update" section, ready to be formatted whenever Jeremy has time. If the instant update infustructure is added, then why not just make it part of the SQL database that holds all the NELSAP information, and open the NELSAP forum over at NELSAP.org?

Hey all,

I wanted to revisit this thread, because Jeremy and I are getting closer and closer all the time to getting the new subpages for the website up. I would like to know what our newer members who haven't posted in this thread in that past what screen resolution that you generally view NELSAP.org at. 800 X 600, 1024 X 768, or 1280 X 1024.

If you don't know how to check to see what resolution you are at, here's how:

On Windows: Minimize all windows so that you are looking at your desktop. Right-Click on the desktop and click on 'Properties.' Once the window opens click on the 'Settings' tab. Your screen resolution will be shown right below the slider on the left hand side of the window. Once you know your resolution, click 'Cancel' to exit the window.

On Mac: Click the Apple in the upper left-hand corner, and go to 'System Prefrences.' Once loaded click on 'Displays' and your resolution should be highlighed in a list on the left-hand side of the window.

1280 X 1024 here. I design all my sites to be useable at 800 X 600, but optimized for 1024 X 768 or 1280 X 1024. Variable width tables are your friend...
