Is everyone happy with this template?

If not, have a look here http://www.phpbb3styles.net/

Click on 'styles database'

I was thinking maybe x-treme red?

Anyway, post any thoughts here

Cheers, Lee

What, you don't think http://www.phpbb3styles.net/db/style/SpringFlowers is a good template for this forum? :lol:

Seriously, though, X-treme Red looks like it would fit nicely. Glass Red looks kind of cool, too, http://www.phpbb3styles.net/db/style/Glass+Red , but I like the technical look of X-treme Red.


Insert witty, yet philosophical remark here...

X-treme Red gets my vote. :D

No offence 'craigr' but Glass Red gave my monitor screen a strange 3D effect and although it looked cool to start with after looking at it for a few mins my eyes could feel the strain :a103:

I have added the template

If you go to your user control panel, select board preferences, then display options - you should be able to select it

I won't make it default until we have had some comments....

Cheers

:D I've done that, it looks good, I went through them all last week but I could not find anything that looked better.
It should look good when you've got the banners up.

The only trouble is, when you resize the browser window, it re-sizes everything.... so the banner wouldn't work too well if it was full size.

I would say we are save with about 600(ish) by upto 150ish pixels.... if you make it a bit bigger I will scale it to the right size, if thats ok?

Cheers

Just as well you said that I was going to make it full size, which would have been '1286 X 131' pixels at '72' resolution. but I'm working on a wide screen monitor now, that wouldn't have worked very well on a standard monitor would it? :oops:

Sorry I've not been around for a while, I've been a bit busy.
Lee here's the banner for the page header, I know it's not very original but as I said I've been busy :wink:

Image

It's twice as big as you asked for so you'll need to reduce it 50% I thought too big was better than too small, it'll allow you to tweak it a bit and get it just right.

WOW! Thanks for that, looks fantastic =D>

I am having issues with the template at the moment, to get the image bigger, I need to find and change the maximum size allowed

Will try and sort it later

Cheers, Lee

Everything is working fine as far as I'm concerned, but I'm not using Firefox.
