While designing a website, what is the best width for a webpage? 800 px? 1000px? 1200px or more?
Also, which is the better layout - fluid width or fixed width?
Do you mean 800px including at least one sidebar?
Fine. I was thinking about two things -
>> I plan to write longish posts - 2000 words or more. With 800 px (with sidebar), this will mean a really long page.
>> Re this link (http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_display.asp) at least 98% of screens have a resolution of 1024x768 or more. Don't you think a webpage with 800 px width will look a bit odd on such screens?
I usually check google analytics for browser and screen resolution of my traffic. Large percentage of my traffic is in between 800x600-1024x768 display.
I assume you've no access to analytics data and if you're going to write longer posts then fixed width and 1024px+ is better option for desktop users.
I checked that way too - 800px is favored by less than 5% of visitors to my webpages.
So I guess it will be a toss up between 1000px and 1200px.
I take that decision based on traffic chart. If you're getting large traffic from 1240x768 then there is no need to think about 1024px.
I think that is the best thing to do.
Thank you, skyfire! I appreciate your feedback.
I think that the best size between 800px and 1000px
Most sites use these sizes in order to comply with all resolution Screen of used by every one

I may be the only person that feels this way but I really don't like the look of our hubs. I think they would look more professional if they were wider. They remind me of blog posts.
