Can I make my site have a fixed width, I am guessing its with css... is there a way to do it with my site? When its viewed on a smaller screen it mashes everything together, I would rather it left it looking as it is and added a side scrolling bar, so in essence the width of the site would be fixed, not elastic. Does that make sense? Is that possible?

Hello reptileparty

My apologies for my late response. I am not well versed in this area but from my understanding, it is not really possible to create a fixed width.

Actually, it may be possible to create a fixed width but it can still create problems. if you have a visitors whose screen resolution is much larger, it can still look distorted if your fixed width is smaller.

However, if you wish to still continue with this - here's some information that may be of help to you. I have not tried this so I am not able to vouch for its validity:

Hopefully others may come up with some ideas as well.
