That’s not a very interesting flight sim title … “Reminder …. X-Plained Dimensions“, but I think there’s need to highlight this. Not that I have had many issues about this, I thought it would be a good idea to clarify this.

X-Plained is a WordPress based website with added to it an awesome template named Divi from Elegant Themes. Although this is the starting point, many things needed to be changed, added or coded to get the look and feel as it is now.

One of the decisions to be made is the website dimension, keeping in mind the optimum monitor resolution of others and of course, of mine. I have an iMac 27 inch which has a native width of 2560 pixels. OK, nice to know, but I can imagine that not everybody has a 27 inch monitor nor a width of 2560 pixels. Perhaps some have even more pixels, some have less pixels. To cover this, the website contents has a maximum width of 1280 pixels. That said, the website contents is applicable to the three columns. All the rest is filling the page. So on a computer monitor you can always read the contents till a monitor resolution of 1280 pixels. When you have e.g. a monitor with a width of 1024 pixels, then you see a scrollbar, but I think that’s not the case anymore. Adding to this, only simmers who have a width of 2560 pixels see the fullwidth sliders as they are. Any monitor less this 2560 pixels cuts off these fullwidth sliders pictures symmetrically from the left and right. Sorry, that’s the way it is!

Which web browsers can be used? As it looks now, every browser I know. That are for Windows/Mac computers:
– Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 (I hope I’m right) (not applicable for Mac)
– Microsoft Edge (not applicable for Mac)
– Mozilla Firefox
– Google Chrome
– Opera
– Vivaldi
– Safari (not applicable for Windows)

That said, is primary designed for viewing on a monitor although it is also for tablets and SmartPhones although you can imagine that lots of pictures are cutoff due to the lower dimensions.
