Fixed CSS Background Image on iPad Not Working?

Posted on April 28th, 2015

If you’ve been relaxing, thinking your pretty solid CSS code for adding a fixed (or not fixed) background image to your website pages was foolproof, then it’s time to think again. The mobile smartphone revolution is one thing, but tablets and iPads just might be an additional issue…

Ok, I admit it – I got lazy and didn’t check one site with a fixed background image on my iPad; after all, it’s Internet Explorer that causes us designers all the problems right? Not necessarily so these days. But there is a fix for the CSS code for your fixed background image not working.

Equally Spaced Divs in Your Web Design

Posted on August 1st, 2014

There are several simple ways of making sure your divs are separated and spaced equally horizontally across a page. If you use a static 960px width, then you can dimly float your (set width, say 450px) left or even left and right and add padding and margins to fine tune.

But what if you have a fully fluid web design or a semi-fluid (this site uses a maximum width of 1200px and a minimum of 960px depending on browser) or maybe simply more than 2 or 3 divs that you want to show next to each other like this?
