Thanks Justus! I'm trying to figure which would be easier... Rename the CSS files to exclude the word banner... or force people not to block ads on automags.org :) I will downloading mozilla tonight to try and find a solution so people don't have to mess with their browsers at all.
Thanks for all the positive feedback so far, I worked really hard on this so i'm glad everyone likes it as much as I do.
Btw, if anyone missed out on the chance to be in the banner, I will post another thread in a few months so you can be on the top of the page as well. :headbang:
Chrome is rendering like the picture above as well. (i.e. missing the banner) Chrome Version 26.0.1410.28
Also the border of the "headline" gif automags.org online is really jagged. Maybe .png would be better choice as it can handle larger color space and gradient opacity. In this case it would create better anti aliasing on the transparency edge.
Other than that, good work on the theme!:clap:
If the Adblock is turned off for the site, and the banners are placed correctly, the Automags.org/Online logo is pushed all the way up into the gray header and you never see the jagged edges.
By the way, the jagged edges are a product of the text using a drop shadow and a transparent background. Older "photoshop"-like programs didn't know how to handle opacity very well, and would fill in the transparency gradient of a shadow effect with a background color. In this case, that background color at least was a spot-on match for the color of the header. And that's why it will never be noticed if the header is placed properly by the browser. (i.e., simply whitelist the automags.org domain)
Yep, it was the Adblock. Forgot it as it rarely makes any trouble.:rolleyes:
Did I miss a data call for pictures for the photobanner?
Now that the design is out of the way and I have access to upload new headers.... I don't think there will be any problems adding AOers to the banner in the near future. The only real problem is to get people to take high quality pictures. At least get the camera guy to take a picture a little closer.... I think people want to see what kind of automag you are shooting!! lol
this is really looking great! i havent been around this neck of the interwebs as long as many of you, but i have to say its awesome to see my picture in the banner!
THANK YOU BUNNY for all your hard work! Dayspring as well, and anyone else who has been contributing!
Great Job! :dance::dance::dance:
Used to be when you did a search you could pick which forums you wanted to search in, but that option doesnt seem avaiable now. Is there anyway to turn that back on? I.E. I want to search for "ULE" in the BST Misc parts thread. Or am I doinitrong?
I'll take a closer look at this later today. I think we should have it defaulted back to the single search. I think it has something to do with the templates in vbulletin. :D
Wow, thanks for the header link guys!
I was thinking - for a cleaner look, we can take all of the AGD links and the dealer links and instead of having them listed, have them in menus such as AGD and Dealer. The links would still be there, but in a menu format instead of all across the top.
Plus, it gives us some scalability in what we add, because at some point, we'd run out of room.
Ya it can be cleaner. Look at the links across from Welcome. All of them plus the drop down.
Then look at all the links under the tabs plus the drop downs. Why do we need a notifications link when there is a PM link. Right below it. See what I mean? Redundent Links........:confused:
Move the search box down. More room. Loose the redundent links. More room.
Whats up with blogs, groups and calenders? The calender is broke and do we use the other stuff?
Obviously we need the FAQs link and others. Lots of grey space between the forums and the header that could be used for header space. (pic)
Thanks for all your hard work Bunny.:cheers:
Anything that's functional/modifications is me.
Keep in mind - alot of that stuff you mentioned is built into VBulletin and really can't get changed, or not changed without significant effort. As for the calendar, I can look into it. Blogs are up and running far as I know. What group things are wrong?
Why do I have to put a link to the thread that we did business in in order to leave someone feedback? Typically, I delete my FS threads when I have sold what I need to out of it or feel like taking it down for a bit which makes it so that I can't link it. Other times I may do a transaction with someone that wasnt necessarily conducted publicly, but still want to leave feedback. Can this be disabled? Or do people really feel its necessary?
Nothing negative meant by it. It was just a joke.
That feature CAN be disabled. It's there, however, to make sure that somebody can't artificially jack up somebody's reputation.
Consider it a safety feature. Secondly, we have no shortage of database space so don't worry about deleting threads.
Is it possible to change the bottom of the page (when reading a thread)
Quick Navigation - Forum ID drop down box - Top
Quick Navigation - Forum ID drop down box - Go
Or is that a user setting?
just a side note. the link on the top of the page to luke's customs doesnt lead to his homepage... leads to the automag specific page.
Make a game room! We spend so much time here anyways..
By the way, I also changed the "folder controls" to show up on the top of the screen when reading PMs. :)
