Ok I'm not a CSS person,  I guess I'll have to get around to it one day but for now just trying to get this site working and pretty so i can get back to leveling.  I use Box Border Images, cause like i said i don't know the first thing about CCS.

So the question is Can I set a minimum or maximum for the box width?

If so, how?

Link to site so you can see what I mean.  GUILD IN QUESTION HERE
Left side, Server info box is smaller than info box under it.  I want them all to stay the same size.

Actually I really like how they aren't all exactly perfectly sized, it makes it look like they are scrolls being hung off the wall- very easy on the eyes to transition from box to box. But that's just my 2 cents.

I am sure there's a setting somewhere you can adjust, or a code you can paste into your site somewhere that will give you the look you are after.

Hi ChildHoodHorror,

I just figured this problem out for someone else in another post. Internet Explorer is the problem, it ignores the CSS parameters "min-width" and "max-width". I had to mess around with a solution until I found one that works with more than just one site. Add this line to your CSS and adjust the number in red to fit your site.
.LeftContentZone .ContentBoxTitleNoBackground, .RightContentZone .ContentBoxTitleNoBackground {width:175px;}
If someone else is having this problem and the CSS above doesn't work, try using ".ContentBoxTitle" instead of ".ContentBoxTitleNoBackground"... it all depends on your site having content box borders or not.
