My website is nice and centered when I design it on my computer. When I look at it on another computer and the screen size is smaller, it gets cut off on the right side rather than adjusting to the smaller screen size. How can I make the site "shrink to fit" when the screen page size is smaller?

Which page are you working on? And what size screen are you talking?

It's a test page, not on my actual site yet. When I view it as I'm working on it, it's centered. When I open it in Internet Explorer, it's cut off on the right. Is there a "shrink to fit" option for when you change the size of the page you are looking at (by that I mean nothing more than putting your cursor in the top right corner of the page, clicking and holding and pulling the page smaller). Below is an example of what I'm talking about. This is my friend's website. When it opens anywhere, there are 1/4" page margins and as you pull the page bigger or smaller, the margins stay at 1/4". Can I do this?

Our pages are a fixed width at this time. The site should stay centered until the window is reduced to the width or your site. Unfortunately, Sitebuilder is not yet able to do what your friend's site does.

Oh, and as for the screen size, I don't think that matters with my question. My question is how do I make it stay centered with the same margins on ANY screen size. Thanks.

And one more thing (sorry). Why are there lines above and below my top left picture where it doesn't meet the object next to it or below it when I view it on internet explorer, but not when I preview the test page on AOL?

I do not see any lines in Internet Explorer. Can you get a screen shot?

The top layer is how it opens in AOL. The bottom is how it opens in Internet Explorer. There are lines in one. I'll move the images closer together and see if it helps. I just don't know why it looks fine in one and shifts over in the other.

That is odd. Here is what the banner looks like in my Internet Explorer. No lines

Good to know. Thanks for all of your help with my problems. I'm getting to know Homestead online better. I'll call support during the week or open an online chat to figure out why my Homestead desktop version isn't working. I tried to uninstall and reinstall 3 times and still no-go. Thanks for your help!
