View Full Version : Two frontpage potentials
04-25-2010, 10:10 AM
Here are two potential frontpages for this forum. If you are afraid to vote on one that you sort of like because you're afraid I will use it, don't worry. They are both in their proto-type phases. This is just to get some feedback on what setup you the community likes in general:
Again, I'm still looking for better one's, bear with me, but I would like some feedback on these two.
edit: also these are the two that I whipped up. Zen Miler (an actual graphics designer) said he would make one or modify the current one's we have. He is the one who designed the color scheme/layout o this forum
Thank you :D

I hope to God you're going to change the colors though

haha, yes. I just click on the first colors that came up.
Again this is strictly for the layout of the website.
edit: The frontpage that wins will move on to round 2, where better layouts will be entered.

Are you going to stick with hosting it on Bravenet?

No. I will most likely buy a domain sometime within the week. For right now though we are just working on coding and the layout of the website, so it might as well be on bravenet.
Also, thank you for the donations, however small they are they help immensely. :D

I wouldn't recommend the second one, it's way too common. I like the look of the first one though.
For layouts divs are much better than tables as divs allow more flexibility when it comes to editing the layout. Tables aren't terrible but if you're going for a more in-depth site, you'll want to make your layouts using divs and css.

Yeah, I pretty much gave up trying to design my own layout. Instead I'm going to download one. :)

CSS can be a pain in the ass. For me at least. I am not actually a 'graphics designer' but rather a web developer. There are still inconsistencies between the Firefox/Chrome and IE renderings on this site. That's okay though we don't have much to work with.
As far as doing css and making things readable, we can look into frameworks that are already set up for us. No sense in reinventing the wheel. From the framework, we can then customize. If you guys want to learn more about css (rehler seems to have his head around it) go check out an Apress book or something. Reading a good book is always helpful and they usually have plenty of code samples.
