Styles n such
« on: April 10, 2005, 09:09:33 AM »
Ok, I've looked and I've looked, but 95% of the styles available either suck ass or require payment.

SO, what I propose we do is get one person (knowledgable in both CSS and willing to create some graphics) to come up with a new style or 5.  I will be playing around with the style editor today and see if I can come up with something myself, but I want someone else to volunteer also.  I'll have to create a temp admin account for said person, because that's the only way to get to the style editor.

So... anyone wanna do it?

If you want to do it, that's cool.. I just wasn't aware of your graphics/CSS knowledge.

If given a design I could probably code it up.  But I suck at design.

If you have test board set up Ober, would it be possible to let a number of people loose on that? That way they hopefully wouldn't be able to do much damage and if anything half-way presentable comes out of it then - that would probably be a miracle.

Would it be possible to start by tweaking the colours/fonts and saving that as a template?

Is this the manual:

And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?.

That does appear to be the manual, fitlike.

And I can't setup a test board... at least I don't think I can, I'm still trying to figure out this damn style manager.  It's f-ing crazy.  No wonder why everyone else was bitching up a storm.

By the way, I have uploaded the one free style I was able to get my hands on.  It is a bit... "red"... but whatever, it's available.

Well, could I have a go - until someone comes forward who actually knows what they're doing or I get bored?

I just hope everybody likes porridge grey.

Mmmmm porridge.

edit: I seem to remember reading somewhere or other in the vb licence that you could set up a second testing forum provided it wasn't open to the public but I don't know if you set Mike up with that one so he can indulge his fetish for fiendish experiments.

I'd like to see some kind of test board setup - maybe even back at whproductions? I'd be quite happy to mess around with some stuff if i knew the worst that would happen is that the test board needed to be reinstalled.
