    Webdesigners aware!

    Post by Moliat on Thu May 05, 2011 3:08 am

    We're looking to change the background image, top header image, top navigation bar background and navigation bar buttons.

    I'm not sure on the pixel specifics, but we want the colours of the forum to match those of our blog and our YouTube channel.

    Anyone want to give it a shot? Both the forum background image and top header should be very wide so as to fit a large array of monitor sizes.

    The banner should be 100 pixels vertically by about 2000 pixels (give or take a few) horizontally. The extreme horizontal length is because, once we fix the CSS code, the banner will automatically be cropped horizontally according to the dimensions of the monitor of every person viewing the forums.

    Try creating a very crude one first with those dimensions and we'll see how it works.

    If the dimensions work (those are the dimensions of the banner we have been using up until now), you could try designing a banner similar to the one on our blog. We will try to make the forum design similar to the blog design, except the central box of text where all topics and posts appear on the forums will not be changed.

    Edit: this is what our original banner looks like in its entirety.

    Most of the info there is what is needed. Smile

    iirc this forum stretch's so it makes having a background with particular focus on images hard, give it a shot though.

    No rush, do it when you are able and willing.

    And there is no reason more people can't try making a design.

    I am not really very good at image editing and such, but I do dabble every now and again.

    I had a little free time earlier today so I whipped up those buttons you asked for.

    I like the look but the color is a little bright. Also maybe you could try spacing the letters out a few pixels as they look a little cramped. Otherwise nice job.

    It'll be too long with "DFA" in front, so two buttons saying "BLOG" and "YOUTUBE" would be great.

    It's looking fantastic, the only amendment I can think of is a few pixels more between the letters.

    I'll edit the images probally some time tomorrow as im a little busy tonight.

    The spacing I used is actually the same as the spacing used on the images already in place (I copied and edited them to make those buttons), but I can squeeze an extra pixel in there if you wish.

    As for the colour, it only looks bring because its a transparent background on a white backing, when on the green backing like the rest of the links you will see that the colours are identical.

    Cool beans. Try adding that pixel and editing the text, and we'll implement it Smile

    Either way I am positively surprised that you're providing these images!

    Do that look so bright because of the forum backgrounds, or did you used inner/outer glow?

    I've not added any effects that are not present in the images already in use.

    They look bright becuase they are on a light background with very little contrast, once they are against the green background you will see that they match the rest.

    N.b. Thanks Abahab

    Abe, would you care to implement them here?
