I have been searching the forums but man that is whole lot to read and being in the Navy I have limited time for research as well as creation so here it goes, I apologize if any of these questions are beat to death.

For server status containers how do I get those? Is that something that you have to get through the game site or what? We are an AoC guild and since the game isn't even out yet I understand I won't be able to get it yet but for future reference.

Container borders how do I get cool borders for my boxes? As well as the title line in the containers I have seen websites with cool title bars in their boxes and was just wondering if there is an easy way to get something like that for mine.

RSS feeds I can't seem to find any that work when I create an RSS feed box and plug in the url I get the message that this link has been tried before and doesn't work or something similar.

Oh I also found another website that had a very cool welcome box where my GP member name popped up when I went to it in the box, I was wondering if anyone had any idea how to do something like that as well.

Ok I think that is it for now. I want to say thank you very very very much in advance for anyone that can help with any of these items.

you can reply here or send me a PM either way again I thank you very much.

Server status is a third party thing you need to find.  once you find them simply paste the code they give you into a freeform container.

Go to control panel>style and colors>box border images  and fill in the url info for the pictures you wan to use.  I would suggest you get someone elses images so you know the proper dimensions to use.

For the RSS feed i cant say much from your description.  a link o ur site may help

The welcome message is really easy to do I just cant remember what GP uses to identify the account names.

oh I did for get that, so far I was able to figure out the border part, but the IE part still eludes me since I am not sure what an empty img tag would even look like in the code. As for the RSS feed not sure but here is a link to the site

Condemned Gaming Guild

Thank you very much for the help

Oh I do have one more quesiton about the borders what is the top right fader used for I could not seem to figure that one out, whenever I put something in that spot it wouldn't show up at all, but when I filled all of the slots including that one it would leave a break in the top bar between the content title and the top background. I seem to have made it work right but I would like to figure out what the fader actualy does.

Angain thanks for all the help.

Well an img tag just looks like this
<img src="URL GOES HERE" border="0">
If there is not a valid url in the source then IE will simply display an empty box with a red X

As for the RSS feeds they work for me in FF and IE so dont know what to tell you about that.

To be honest I never have been able to figure out that stupid fader myself  Ive seen it in the customizing guide but that doesnt say anything about it.  So you got me there. 

Also if you give me a link to the site that had the welcome you liked I can get the code for you

I fixed the IE thing thank you very much for the help with that, it was actualy easier then I thought to find the empty img tag.

As for the RSS I guess I must be doing something wrong then cause they don't seem to work for me. I have been getting the URL by subscribing to them then copying the url from the properties when I look it up, is there a better way to get the feed?

And here is the site I saw the cool welcome thingy The Heelchoppers Guild

Again I can't thank you enough for all your help.
