I agree with what the above poster said. However, don't get rid of that banner all together. I'd use it as a splash page, if that's a route you want to take. But, yes... it is a bit tall.

If you have a way of creating a content box, or find one you like... shoot me a PM with the image and I'll get the CSS going for you.


To everyone else... I redid my content boxes and got it working. What I would like is some feedback regarding color schemes. I know there is still the issue with the footer and I will take care of that when I have the spare time to back everything up.

*EDIT* HERE is the site. I forgot to link it in the original post. /sigh

im kind of a  stickler for site congruity and i dont think the content containers go with the background as well as maybe working on the pixelation of them it might work better if you made them into stone colleseums instead of that blue stuff then the background would match it
also i think it would look good if you rounded the edges of the corners it kind of looks like theyre cut off let me know what you think about my advice

Becoming Adept!

Here is my first attempt at designing a forum, it's taken me two full days of trial & error to get it to this point & I'm fairly satisfied with most of it, I think the navigation tabs need to be redone though as they were too big when I created them & the font hasn't come out too well after the shrinkage

Have to say I'm well chuffed with the banner, I know it's simple but I have never attempted any kind of animation before & I think it has turned out quite well

Two things I'd like to sort on the home page but haven't quite figured out yet are a server status box, & a simplified Recruitment box

I really like the Server Status Boxes from here 

Everything you ever wanted to know about Recruitment Boxes. Mottie provided several different ones for you to pick from.

Okay it's my turn to step up for some constructive feedback on my "built by these design forums" website. This is my first Guild Portal website...

Well, figure I should submit my guild's website for review.

The banner is being replaced. It was made by a long gone guild member, and we're not really all that fond of it. Please, though, let me know what all of you think of the site.

Also, how do I get the forums to show what each symol means? You know, the section at the bottom that shows * means new topic, + means hot topic, etc?


Well, my original post got lost in the shuffle, so, here we go again. The link is quoted above.

I would really appreciate some feedback, so, anything you can suggest or even be critical about would be appreciated

a couple of things i see that you may wanna work on try using a desktop wallpaper as your background image. and the content boxes dont really match the overall concept of your website well its jus well red and kinda there. try using the storm buttons from the website you got those from and you can maybe do a celestial cloudy look for the content containers.

Coup de Etat

Yeah, I used CSS for the entirety of the customization... I'd really like to hear feedback from people who aren't members of my guild (and therefor don't mind hurting my feelings lol)

If you're wondering, I basically copied the CSS file from an original guildportal theme, pasted it in the custom CSS and edited all the stuff I wanted to change.
