The NZA Posted December 7, 2004 Share Posted December 7, 2004 Ok, so our official Tech Support guys - the CRT pimps - should be ready to go now, both havin full FTP access, which means they can mess with all the sub-pages - member list, art the front page, gallery, all of it. I'm working on modified/restricted access to the admin control panel for chiefy, so i can put his coding skills to use for mods - when he's got some free time, we can get the spoiler tags back up & all kinds of things. On my end, i need to finally finish up on the chat program.... So, the two are looking at a massive project, should they undertake it, of relocating our board's images to a designated directory, freeing up a lotta the mess behind the curtains that no one else sees....ive no idea how they intend to re-route every damn image that's being hotlinked (you guys arent thinking of editing everywhere, are you? that'd never end...), but if they do any such thing, we'll have a temporary shutdown to help em out. Anyway, now that i got help, i gotta abuse it put it to use, so whenever you guys get a chance, here's what needs doin: -I dig our drop-down menu on the main page, cause ive been able to get it compaitble with most browsers & give off effects even, but if dante comes up with a better flash one, id be down...my main complaint is that i cant find a hex color that matches our main skin dead-on, and Invision themselves are way off on a guess. If someone coudl google "hex colors" and find the code for a color that more closely resembles our theme, id really be greatful. -The Member List needs centering/proper orientation; some shit isnt allligned right. This shouldnt take too long, right? -The profiles themselves need work....Ruby and Dante are both examples of margins gone horribly wrong; but the whole template needs redoing anyway.... No more purple bar (i was thinkin of a shade of blue matching the main skin), then, id have their name up top link back to their profile here in the board itself (the mini-one; thought itd tie the pages together better), and i intend to ditch the "slideshow" effect; its just an issue of making sharper-looking tables for data, and having a good spot for pics either above or to the side of these tables, whichever looks better. I know there's a ton of em; once there's a template to work with, ill update a lot of em on my own, too. You know what'd be cool? Chief, instead of the Submit your profile page, could we get some HTML form of of a questionaire to fill in, and then click a button to submit it to Profiles@hondosbar.com ? that'd work better, i think. -Dante: any chance of some sharp frame kinda graphic you could put around The Gallery page? id like to sharpen that page, as well as The Jukebox, up - i like the graphics & such in em, just looks half-assed...goddamn margins. -I'm working on updating the glorious FAQ, but im serioulsy debating somethin here: Jax - itd take a long-ass time, but what if, in the answer to every question on the faq, i had thumbnails or some button to click to see the Great Sarcasmo do a pic-by-pic illustartion (where its relevant)? I was thinking of flash files, but there'd just be too many of em to do, and images might work better.... -Im also open to revamps of the photo gallery section, possibly renaming it so its not confused with the art gallery....i love our pics, i just wish it wasnt all one big massive white page goin on back there. Maybe thumbnails? 's all i can think of for now....some shit could get done quick-like, some mgiht take a while...i know im draggin my nuts on the chat, but with some help, i can have that & the mods going sooner than not, and this place could really look great too. Let me know what you guys think you can do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
