Re: new and need help


Lookin' good, guys. emoticon

For the blue smoke, replace this:
/* DEFINES HEADERS AND SEPARATORS */
.ak_msgform_poll_options_head_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_user_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_date_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_im_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_pm_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_email_td, .ak_poll_table_header, .forum_list_header_newtext_td, .forum_list_header_forum_td, .forum_list_header_topics_td, .forum_list_header_posts_td, .forum_list_header_lastpost_td, .forumlist_separator_td, .topic_list_header_modbox_td, .topic_list_header_newtext_td, .topic_list_header_posticon_td, .topic_list_header_topic_td, .topic_list_header_startedby_td, .topic_list_header_replies_td, .topic_list_header_views_td, .topic_list_header_lastpost_td {
font-size : 10px;
height : 22px;
background-image : url(http://rbbt.net/skins/joshin_josh/darkweb/sep.jpg);
padding-top : 0;
padding-bottom : 0;
}


with this:

/* DEFINES HEADERS AND SEPARATORS */
.ak_msgform_poll_options_head_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_user_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_date_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_im_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_pm_td, .ak_msg_seememberlist_head_email_td, .ak_poll_table_header, .forum_list_header_newtext_td, .forum_list_header_forum_td, .forum_list_header_topics_td, .forum_list_header_posts_td, .forum_list_header_lastpost_td, .forumlist_separator_td, .topic_list_header_modbox_td, .topic_list_header_newtext_td, .topic_list_header_posticon_td, .topic_list_header_topic_td, .topic_list_header_startedby_td, .topic_list_header_replies_td, .topic_list_header_views_td, .topic_list_header_lastpost_td {
font-size : 10px;
height : 22px;
background-image : url(http://i8.tinypic.com/6x5zlhg.gif);
padding-top : 0;
padding-bottom : 0;
}


The parchment looked a little bright when I went to insert it. Maybe a duller color?

I'm also concerned about all the animation. When I pull up the page, my resource usage rises from about 5% all the way up to 100%, so I have to close it before it locks up my computer and forces me to reboot. For this reason, I usually turn images off when I post at a board with a lot of animated smilies, leaving most of my posts there smiley-less.

Re: new and need help


Is it possible to remove the checkerd text that appers behind the blue smoke? so we can kinda see the picture in the background through it? I think I would also like to put the blue smoke behind the part that says statistics. so it will match the top part. Wowo I geuss I have strayed really far from useing one of those pre loaded skins. But I am learning alot.

Here's a darker parchment that better matches the colors in the banner.

I misunderstood what you meant about transparent. I thought you wanted to see the checkered background through the smoke. I'll try it the other way and see if LG can make it happen the way you want.

Go back and look at LG's code for the ships. You must have overwrote or deleted something.

Re: new and need help


I can get semi-transparent pixels until I convert it to an animation and then the background becomes white. It might be possible to have either the one with the black background or the white background and have it display as a semi-transparent layer. I've seen MySpace pages that have pictures that you can see through. If LG can do that and make the checkered original disappear, then we got it. The only other solution would be for me to put a little bit of the ship background beneath the blue smoke as part of the animation but that same little picture would repeat and not be a true representation of the actual background.
White Background:

I came up with a new method of making the blue smoke that looks better than what I did for the gray smoke. I'm going to remake the boarder segments this way.

Here's the dark one without the checkered background:

Re: new and need help


If you like the new boarders and feel brave, go in and replace the 2 horizontal urls that say http://i5.tinypic.com/8bf3af4.gif and put in http://i7.tinypic.com/7wsdt05.gif
and replace the 2 vertical urls that say http://i3.tinypic.com/6ly8ymr.gif and put in http://i19.tinypic.com/6tmud77.gif

Go to the "Advanced Security Settings" then go down to the "Fine Tune" and choose the forum that you want to restrict access to.
Select the method of gaining access and click the "See Members" button. You can add selected members here.

You can also choose if you want the forum to be visible to people that do not have access by going back to the "Arrange Forums" button and check the "Hidden if no access" box.
