How to make Confluence look the same in all computer resolutions?

How to make Confluence look the same in all computer resolutions? All of our users have different resolutions and we are having trouble making Confluence look the same for all our users. For some computers, it looks great and for others it looks real ugly. Please help!

If you don't like the default themes provided with confluence, you can build your own theme for confluence:

Then you have control over the look and feel of your confluence instance and you can start changing decorators and css to your liking.

I don't know exactly what you mean by "look the same in all computer resolutions", but if you mean a fixed width layout, I would not recommend it, especially not for something like confluence. I agree, that Confluence should look good and should work at almost any resolution, but that does not mean, that it should look the same. You can take a look at some technique, called responsive design:

However, implementing a custom theme with these things in mind is not a trivial task. It requires a lot of effort and quite likely a lot of ongoing maintenance regarding further confluence updates.

Can you use @media queries or anything similar?

Does Confluence use CSS2 and not 3?

If so, is there any way to specify a different font size for larger screens, for example?
