Uh Oh--Is There A Maximum Page Depth For A Web Layout?

Post by Ira » 26 Jun 2013, 00:24

Please tell me no, but how come I can't make my text box longer? Or add additional boxes below the existing one?

Are there any properties that are affecting my ability to make this page as long as I'm going to need it to be? Otherwise I have to think of a redesign with additional pages, and that's gonna be a real PITA.

Hi Ira,
you can't make the pag elonger than 3456 pixels, that's a QuarkXPress limitation.
However when you use a text box with too much text in it (overflow icon) a web layout should expand it, so that it can get longer.
Thanks
Matthias

Thanks, Matthias.

Turns out to have cost me an extra two days of work, but two days that were well worth it:

It's going to be a lot more readable and substantive now, and tons prettier, dividing the different restaurant types on different pages. And I know I keep asking these "baby questions," but here are two more:

1) This is a labor-intensive part of my site (whether they all fit on one page or not), because in addition to contact info for the restaurant, I include their links, as well as links to their individual Yelp and Urbanspoon pages. It took DAYS, and my fear is that someone can come along and just cut and paste it all to use.

Is there any way to protect myself from that?

2) What font should I use to create a star? Is there a glyph I should be using?

Thanks for your help!
