Welcome to Runboard, Stage88! emoticon

Do you have the images you want to use, and did you upload them to a web host? If not, then that would be your first step.

ImageShack and PhotoBucket are a couple of hosts you can use for storing images, if you don't already have a host.

To change the "water stain", go into your CSS and find this:

#banbox {
width : 760px;
height : 100px;
border : 1px solid #a9a9a9;
background-image : url(http://rbbt.net/skins/joshin_josh/darkweb/sampban.jpg);
margin : 0 auto;
text-align : center;
margin-top : 10px;
margin-bottom : 10px;
}

Change the part in red to the URL of the background image you want to use.

For your celtic knot borders, exactly where are you wanting to put them? I'll need to know this before I can tell you what code to change. Are you talking about the place that currently has this ImageImageImageImageImage background?

If you have some images in mind but need to have them altered for your specific needs, just post them here and tell me what you want done to them. I can change the sizes, colors and a lot of other customized work and make a custom banner with your site name.

You're welcome, Stage. emoticon

I can't get your page background image or your banner to load. [edit]Ok, your banner finally loaded after what felt like an eternity. You really should convert that to a jpg, because right now it's 705.86kb, which is 7/10 of a megabyte. As for your page background, I still can't get it to load more than half way.[/edit]

Marquee text... You won't see black text there unless you change the background color, of course, but you can add this to your CSS to change that text color:

marquee { color: #000000; }

If you ever add another marquee to your board, it will automatically have black text as well. However, if you add another marquee anywhere and want it to have a different font color, we can just add a class name to one or more and define them a bit differently. For now, that one line of CSS is all you need to change your marquee's font color. emoticon

Hi,

I see this in the html section:

<table class="ak_msg_master_table" cellspacing="5" bordercolor="#000000" border="0" width="60%">

But this should really be in the CSS since you have already defined that class there:

.ak_msg_master_table {
border : 0;
width : 740px;
font-size : 11px;
}

I would say just remove the html code so we can see what the background pic looks like here without the cascading effects of two different declarations (I think I know but just want to make sure before suggesting changes)...

How would this work for borders?

These are the individual parts. Maybe Lesigner Girl could help you code this if you like it. I'm pretty sure these borders will expand and contract as your forum grows and for different screen resolution sizes. Can this be done, LG? I got the idea from your site.
Corners:Image
Horizontal tiles:Image
Vertical tiles:Image

Here's your banner image reduced to 28Kb

And the ship - enlarged to the same width.

The file size of this one is 64Kb
