Does it incorporate scaling?

I was thinking I could create some pretty dynamic stuff if it incorporates scaling.

It is possible (in fact, long ago a user did it), but not practical.

Why isn't it practical, what are the drawbacks?

Search engines are not going to follow your links in a website created in construct 2 so your SEO will be terrible.

The accessibility, usability, and Google rankings of "websites" made in Construct 2 will be terrible, like most Flash websites. For website design you should use traditional tools.

built my entire site in construct 2. I don't care about search rankings or useability (in fact I've been trying to make it as needlessly complicated and confusing as possible) so yeah what everyone else is saying but very possible if that's what your going for. (You can choose scaling options in the project properties) also feel free to check out the site if you're bored (it's in my signature) its actually about 6 construct projects strung together hehe

ps- construct 2 website building lets you put silly easter eggs into your site too (for instance, press the 'c' key on the main menu :P)
