Is it possible to make the viewing screen bigger on my site? I added a game and part of it is being cut off. I need step by step instructions if possible.

    Hi Alancito
    If I like my webpage to fill the entire browser screen, what's the recommended content width and height?

    Depend on a lot of things. First you need to know what is your screen resolution. But more important what is the screen resolution of your visitor. Yo know that I use Google Analytics (may be there is other tools outhere).
    I noticed with this tool that most of my visitors were using resolution above 1000px so I decided to bump my site from 710px (default in Iweb) to 1024px (over 50% more). Now my pictures look bigger without being too big (no need to scroll on the left and right). But also I know that some people use lower resolutions so I know that not all visitors will not be happy.

    If you look at my home page you will see that the width is 710px: http://www.wesdotphotography.com/Home.html
    but if you look at this picture the width is 1024px: http://www.wesdotphotography.com/WI01.html
    Hope this help.

    The "standard" width for a web page is 980 px because this will fit most screens without the viewer having to scroll horizontally and translates well for the iPhone.
    This is the width that I use mostly as does Apple because they like to copy me!
