Ok first question is if i can even get a different font type onto my actual guild name theres a font type i found and i would like to use it as my guild name if so how can i implement it onto the site?


second question is is it possible to put a mouse cursor trailer like text following your mouse around your website if so whats the code? ive tried but didnt seem to work out all that well for me.

Thanks in advance

Hi Elfnoid!

For the different font type, you have two choices:
  1. Make your own image using something like photoshop, upload it to your guild files, then point to it from the banner builder.
  2. Submit a feature request to have the font you want installed. But realize that it probably should be a free font, otherwise you are going to make GP pay for a font license which may not happen.
As for the cursor trail, what exactly are you trying to do? Replacing the cursor doesn't always work on all browsers. so you may be limited in that. In the browsers that do allow it, you can replace the cursor with an animated one, or are you talking about something else? Do you have a link to the script you mentioned?

heres a sample of what it should look like, besides the different animation anyway.... its not changing the cursor itself its more like adding something to follow it. i dont know how to input that into my site, if its possible.

Hi Elfnoid!

Actually there are a bunch of other mouse trail scripts out there... this site has a bunch and directions on how to add them.
