page underline title and menu bars messed up

I have attached Screen Shots  in the first one you can see that in firefox and in IE  the underline of the page title is off center,  the left part has no underline and then it goes to far to the right.

Then in the second shot you can see in IE my menu bar at the top is all messed up.

Hi,

ocPortal is designed assuming a 1024x768 minimum resolution. It looks like you're using 800x600, along with an increased text size - these/the-combination-of-these are likely to cause some problems like this.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Ah ok… I just use 800X600 for testing  doesnt this limit alot of the traffic who will view our sites?  I have a 21 inch monitor so its ok but some people are on 17 at work.

Also the first screen shot is in 1024 (I have dual monitors…  I still have the underline problem in IE and Firefox at all resoulutions
Below is another screen shot of IE and Firefox taken at 1024x768

I don't personally know of anyone who still uses 800x600. Even a 15' monitor shows a reasonable 1024x768. However, I realise that some groups of people may be more likely to have lower resolutions, and if ocPortal is being used for a website for one of those groups, the webmaster might want to do some rethemeing to make things more suitable for that particular site.

The underline offset is intentional though - it's part of the design.

I am rather fond of that underline 'design feature', but here is exactly what appears in 'themes/default/css/global.css' if you want to go about changing it . . .

Code

.main_page_title {
   background-color: #CDDEEC; /*{$,wizard, 23% (seed sat_to 71) + 77% W/B} */
   font-size: 1.8em;
   font-weight: normal;
   background: url('{$IMG,underline}') no-repeat 30px 100%;
}

#main_page_title {
   display: inline;
}

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

I know several people who still use 800 by 600 and I even know people who still using windows 95 or worse yet windows ME.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
