After changing the site about a hundred times (the many many banners, buttons, borders, backgrounds, etc) I think I have finally found something I'm happy with (for at least a couple weeks!)

I love to play with Photoshop and that's why I tend to change graphics a lot, but I'm pretty pleased with the current banner and the current “look” of the site. I wanted something not so cookie cutter. Very graphically appealing but not to overwhelming or hard to navigate. I tend to stay away from dark backgrounds when designing for others, but our guild colors are purple and black and well, if you had seen it purple you would have said “PLEASE! PLEASE! Make it black!”

I would love comments and criticism and any ideas ya'll might have to make the site even better. I am never ever done cause I feel like things can only get better. I could NEVER do this professsionally!

Personally, I love this site. You've really stamped your mark on it and come up with something that's just slightly off the 'usual' sites. In fact, if it weren't for the name, anyone happening across this wouldn't immediately think it was a GP site at all... it looks likes a 'from scrath' page, especially with that banner.
Really nice work

That is exactly what I was going for. I kept changing it and changing it and my guildies and friends would say... are you happy with it now? I'd say yes and they'd say, for how long? I just really want it to look different. I have learned html from cut/paste, breaking it and fixing it again and I have just recently started the same learning process with css.

And Rhomany, I love your site. (Especially the music... omg sometimes I just go there to hear the music!) A compliment from you means a lot. Thank you.

How exactly did you get that script to show the name with Zero buttons accross the top.  I would love to do something similar but I have yet to be able to figure it out.  I have Zero javascript capabilities as well so that limits me too.

I do love your site tough.

Here is a link to my site if that might help you figure out what I am trying to do.

Thanks in Advance

Neeliks, I went to display options of each site page. There you can enter an active/inactive image for each page. I created a transparent gif of nothing that I named spacer.gif. It's actually larger than it needs to be as I use that blank gif elsewhere as a spacer. Once I've done that I copied my site menu before I switched to the horizontal menu view. I added a freeform text/html box on the top right of each page and pasted in my menu links that I had copied.

Why did I go through all that trouble? Cause I love the personal effects of greeting a member by name and that code is not fixed for the other menu styles. If I've totally confused you, shoot me a pm and I'll try to show you what I did.

Neelik, there's loads of different sites out there that offer free javascript. Most of it's a simple copy and paste job.

Just type what you want into google or something, or visit somewhere like slackers html who have lists of sites that give it away free. You can really stamp your mark on your site that way, because what you choose won't necessarily be what someone else chooses.

Kit put a link to another free menu site in the Torvus Spiritus post here too, you might find that useful

Oh.. *POUT* hehe that's cause I designed The Asylum. I am not an admin of that site anymore though so I don't know how that works. I like the Vendicta site far better hehe. Anyways, it doesn't matter so much if it makes it. I just wanted to share and get some feedback. I'm pretty proud of it regardless. It's my first time toying with CSS.

*HUG*
