Get ready for a bigger screen

Or rather, for higher resolution.

You are probably aware that the bidorbuy site has been tailored for the monitor resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. Hence the narrow display.

That is set to change very soon: www.bidorbuy.co.za is being redesigned for 1024 x 768 monitor resolution.

So, what does that mean for you?

If you own a monitor with native resolution of 1024 x 768 (or more), it means that your favourite site will look even nicer and less cluttered, with the result that you will want to spend even more time on it than you did up to now.

But what about less than 5 percent of visitors to bidorbuy.co.za who still use monitors with resolution of 800 x 600? Alas, for them, the move to 1024 x 768 optimisation will mean that they will have to scroll the site not only vertically, but horizontally too – a most annoying requirement. Alternatively, they may change their monitor’s resolution. Even better, they may acquire one of those slick LCD displays on offer on bidorbuy.

Sellers on bidorbuy should be as pleased as the visitors to see the increase of the available screen real estate. All but those who have optimised their listings for 800 x 600 monitor resolution, that is. Our advice to them is to waste no time in re-designing their bidorbuy presence!
