    SCGhost should be ready by tomorrow. Props to Kule for getting the SCG images ready... just a matter of coding now... :)

    I'm sure Crooked will get to work on his for that page when he gets a chance as well. It will require entirely new table restructuring however, as there's a drastically smaller amount of space to work with with 3 columns now.

    i know this may seem tough.... but any chance we recode the html part of the entire forum to xhtml 1.1 and css???

    would make it cross broswer compatable... and actually kick some ass . just a suggestion.

    Here's my suggestion...either put this in the private forums, or make the rules REALLY strict so it doesn't get spammed out (no names listed...)

    The coding for the tables look had...and the cookies? Wow. How long did it take? If it were done manually, whoever did it should get like a bajollion cookies.

    A lot of that was already written.

    The styles implemented on every forum page is actually all located within one file. Essentially we can change the entire look of the forums by editing just a few lines.

    The tricky part was installing the portal template so that it could be easily managed and edited.

    Anyone that understands HTML has everything they'd need if they ever wanted to set something like that up. Just requires a bit of reading and studying to understand how that code works... but not too difficult once you start working on it.

    Of course Summit's knowledge of setting this sort of stuff up is exceeding myself, or crooked's... thank God I can always fall back on my skinning though. :)

    LOOKS GOOD, at least it doesn't load up the forum index and we have a simpler way to access current news and contests without having to scour the forums

    I thought restrictions could be adjusted so mods can't move/split stuff in a forum.....

    I like it, it gives me something new to look at instead of the plain old usercp. Actually has semi-helpful info.

    Then it wouldn't be a home page, it would be a quick news page so you do not have to search everywhere for the latest news.

    Perhaps your cache is too full, uFOO. Empty it and reload. The first time will be very long, the second fine.
