Description denelson83 2006-09-29 15:34:44 UTC
I have my screen resolution set to 1280×960×32 bit, resulting in the div box in
the template linked to from here looking too wide on my screen.  Presumably,
another user set it that way because his or her screen resolution is set much
lower.  So to resolve this, is it possible that another magic word, perhaps
{{RESOLUTION}}, be implemented that would return the screen resolution as
reported by the client computer?

That's not actually possible.
Comment 2 Marco 2006-09-29 16:47:52 UTC
it would be possible via javascript, i think.
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-09-29 20:03:12 UTC
Use the CSS max-width property, which will work for anyone who doesn't use IE 6.
 The people who use IE 6 *and* use unusually large screen resolutions can
upgrade to IE 7 (or switch to a different browser) if it really bothers them.
