[Pro] Flexible Layout

Hi There
I’m trying to figure out how to create a flexible vertical layout so that if a user increases the text size in their browser separate elements get pushed down the page rather than overlapping and the elements further down still line up with each other, see http://www.edinburghrc.co.uk/ for example.

I also like the way the box gets bigger to accommodate the new size text

Could somebody point me to a tutorial or item on the softpress site?

Best wiahes

Matt

Dan J did a great tutorial on this and I think it’s at:

http://danjasker.blogspot.com/2008/07/fw5-understanding-box-model.html

The site you get taken to has dark grey text on a black background and
is VERY hard to read, but if you squint you can just make it out.
(Sorry Dan, but it’s true :slight_smile:
The tutorial used to be viewable in a browser but now I think you have
to download it. It’s a great tutorial.

best wishes,

Thanks very much Paul, I’ve built the site using this method - it took me a while to get my head round the process but I got there in the end.

Since building my box model master pages I’ve discovered that changes to the masters don’t show up in the document.

That seems like a fundamental flaw to me.

I guess I’ll have to go an learn about using tables instead now…
