Thanks for sharing! I like that it includes a header already. Templates such as these are always a huge time saver for small projects and pages that need to be completed quickly.

Also, welcome to the forums!

Hey man, nice share.

I'm a little curious as to why you've decided to use a large image of pure white to create a white background? You could simply use "background: #fff;".

Have you tried looking into flexbox?

You could save a lot of time and stress (it does for me Tongue ) using flexbox, achieving this sort of layout is hard no more! Big Grin

I'm going to show you the changes I would make to your CSS, might save you some time.
Quote:....
 
.main{
/*background:transparent url(http://orig09.deviantart.net/d6e6/f/2015...8ceprb.jpg)
repeat-x 0 0;*/


    background: #fff;
    padding:28.2px;
    /*overflow: scroll;  Why add a scroll bar when there is no need? */
    font-family: "Arial";
    line-height: 13.3px;
    font-size: 12.5px;

}
 
.inner-main{
    padding:10px;
    width:100%;
    display: flex;
    justify-content: space-evenly;

}
 
 
 
.inner-main > * {     /* Use > * to select all direct children of the .inner-main class. */
    width: 100%;

    border-left: 1.5px dashed #000;
    border-right: 1.5px dashed #000;
    padding: 20px;
}


/* Remove all .columnsfit classes. */

 
.footer{
    clear:both;
}

Then all it takes to make this layout responsive is this:
@media (max-width: 960px) {
     .inner-main {
         flex-wrap: wrap;
     }
}


Be sure to add the responsive meta tag to inside your <head> to tell the browser your page is optimised for mobile.
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">


Look at the difference: https://i.imgur.com/NYhunuw.mp4

Forgot to add the borders in the vid, try this:
.inner-main > * {
    border-left: 3px dashed black;
}
.inner-main > *:last-child {
    border-right: 3px dashed black;
}
@media (max-width: 960px) {
    .inner-main > * {
      border-right: 3px dashed black;
    }
}

What's stranger is adding a background image but having it be completely transparent. Still useful thanks.

heh that's how I started out before trimming it down to two columns, and eventually just one by replacing all columns with frames so I could separate the side menu from the site pages.

good template though, works well!

I made this template a couple years ago. I think I did that because I was convinced the background was a different color. Don't exactly remember.

Thank you for the feedback and comments. I appreciate the time you took to leave your advice and tips. 
 I guess its time to get up to date with standard css with flexboxes and other current standards.

A note to drop: CSS Grid is another splendid choice of bleeding edge.

Frames nowadays aren't the ideal way of solving the issue of navigation bars and other elements you want to keep consistent across multiple pages on a site. I personally just use a php include.

I guess?

php just adds another layer to everything though while frames kinda act like a more basic way to do it, it seems to work pretty well and over all weight and loading times are low, but that's just my experience with it... and why ignore a method that's worked for 20+ years?
