    Hi guys, I have been using 960 grid system. but I am having an issue with the size of the containers not changing. If I link a div wrap for a page to have container of 12 16 or 24 the size will not change.

    Take a look at the site that I did to see what I mean.


    It is very strange.

    I have the entire page in a

    <div class="wrap container_24">
    If it is either 12 16 or 24 the size of the page will not change.

    The 960 grid you have used is a static width (960px wide) layout. If you change the number of 'boxes' in there it just squeezes more boxes into the available width. You might wanna try a fluid grid system such as Foundation Foundation: The Most Advanced Responsive Front-end Framework from ZURB (beware the lack of IE8 support on version 4!!!) or perhaps this one Responsive Web Design just got Easier with the Responsive Grid System which I have played around with before and seems to work OK. A grid is no substitute for coding your own stuff IMO but they can be quick and effective for development - if a little bloated at times.
