Becoming Adept!

Ok lets start out by establishing that im as noob as they come when it comes to making/designing a website. I recenlty joined guildportal and have been trying for 2-3 days to make my website look somewhat decent. Not getting a look anywhere near what i want and having no idea how to do it is making me want to pull my hair out. Somehow i managed to make a banner, this is what i have so far just to give you an idea http://blackelement.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=269910&TabID=2266153. For some reason all my borders on every content box are that ugly red!! No matter what "theme" i change it to the red has never changed, i think its possibly bugged? Also i really dislike the entire content box layout and would prefer something a little more organized...? As you can see i have no clue. I have some other ideas for the website but just to many scrub questions to list here and waste your time.

WELL.. im really not sure what to do, i think if i could talk to someone on vent or aim, just to guide me/point me in the right direction? I realize this is probrobly a waste of your time... But without any guildies familiar with guildportal you guys are my last hope!

If AIM is a retarded idea just ignore this but mine is - Jiggywitit936,  (shut up, i've had it since 4th grade, that song was cool back then!) I'll try to stay online.

Go to Control Panel > Style & Colors > Custom Images > Content Box Borders

and click (clear) for now.

If you want to design your own box borders, all you need to do is add the URL to the image in the space next to the name. Read this post of how the top of the content box is set up - it's especially important that the "Top Left Content Area" image is 159 pixels wide.

It's a little more work, but if you later decide to use CSS for more flexibility, read through this post.

I'd search these forums. Mottie has posted a ton of useful information. I'm sure if you ask him nicely, he'll guide you in the right direction
