Willing to help...

Post by Fozzik on Thu Mar 21, 2013 10:07 am

I've got a bit of experience with html, graphics, forum software, etc. I'm not a professional by any stretch, but I can muddle through pretty well and I know enough to be dangerous. I would love to help out with the forums if wanted or needed (just as a basic example, we could maybe do a guild logo banner and have links be a different color from the post text?). I don't know the limitations of the hosting you guys are using, but if it's editable, I could do almost anything you'd like.

Just thought I'd offer my services, such as they are, in case the guild can use them.

For some examples of things I've done, check out...

Here, here, and here.

I didn't design all three from the ground up. I edited them and tweaked them.

The layout and much of the design for Silky Venom was done by myself and one other person. The other two are modified versions of freely available skins. I did the banners, graphics, and some little things (like buttons and smilies) in Photoshop, and did a ton of layout tweaks to php, css, and html.

Link color changed to stand out from the regular text.

Please post here if you have suggestions or requests. I'm going to work on a banner for the forum header.

Nice. I'm going to redo the banner with the higher-quality image. Thanks.

How do you guys feel about pink names for officers...to match the logo?

It's a manly pink.

I'm discovering that Forumotion has things locked down pretty tight as far as back-end stuff goes. I can tweak basic things like images, buttons, or colors, but I can't get to the code for the forums or edit anything serious (like changing the layout or how posts are displayed). All of that appears to be controlled by the theme...and I haven't figured out how to edit it.

There are some screwy things with this theme, like the Profile pages having text in the wrong colors and things that change color when you mouse over them (even though they aren't links...I think someone forgot to close a tag somewhere). Also, the avatar page appears to be pretty broken. It does not allow the use of .jpg pictures for avatars (at least not that I've found), even though there's a huge gallery of .jpg pictures already available. Very weird. The upload feature doesn't appear to work at all.

Post buttons and icons all tightened up to match each other.

After quite a bit of fiddling, I can say for sure that Forumotion has things locked down tight. Other than playing with the skin, it's not possible to edit or reformat the forums.
