Percentage or Pixels?

Post by Spakowski »

I was wondering what the best width was for a fixed forum, right now I'm using 770px. Also, what is better to use pixels or percentage for the forum width.

Fixed width you'd use pixels, as percentage creates the fluid effect.

That said, it's good to code the inner parts using percentages and set the wrapper as fixed, so that the end user can have the choice to make it fluid at a later date if they choose.
