Website on mobile
Not entirely visible

Msg#: 4359423 posted 12:00 pm on Sep 7, 2011 (gmt 0)

My website is cut-off on the sides when viewing on a mobile. Here is my css setup for the container that contains the rest of the website:

#base {
background-color: #FFFFFF;
border: 2px solid #FFCC99;
height: 556px;
left: 50%;
margin-left: -440px;
margin-top: -288px;
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
width: 880px;

Is there any change I should make here to make the entire content visible?

When viewing the site on a mac in Safari, when pushing the green "+" shrinks to the viewport you see on a mobile.

Hi mevanderkuur, and welcome to WebmasterWorld.

I expect the problem will be caused by the absolute positioning. There are a number of ways to deal with that, such as using @media, for example. However, as it is the containing div, I would suggest that rather than trying to "fix" the problem created by positioning, a better approach would be to ask whether positioning is required - and if not, remove it.
