Hi,

There is nothing really special on that link. Mostly all the things you see there you can do on FM.
Forum widgets http://help.forumotion.com/t22589-forum-widgets

first off thanks for the super quick reply...i really like how they have the pics for the champions and if you noticed when you lay your curser ontop of one part of the pic you see the champion, secondly i like the way he is a cool picture ontop of his forum widgets and lastly i like how he has that pic ontop of the login box....

To do things like that you'll need to know a bit, though the most important is your patience.
The swamp images effect is explained here http://help.forumotion.com/t97887-staff-widget-with-hovering-swamp-images-effect
Read carefully the whole topic.

Secondly, the image on the top of the widgets, do you mean this one?



Show me your forum URL and I'll tell you how to add it. Activate your forum widgets first. Check the link in my previous post. That values for the image on the top of the login too.

Add this to AP > Display > Colors > CSS:

Code:
#left .module .h3 {
    background: url("http://img160.imageshack.us/img160/3209/32592181cz1.jpg") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    color: white;
    padding: 5px;
}

This will be the resault:



Than go to your AP > General > Forum > Categories and forums > Perms next to you forum and make it visable for members only so you'll have the login thing on the main page.

Since you'll need/want a bunch of customisation I'd personaly chose a template avilabe version wich is punBB or BB2.

You can't acces templates unless you are on punBB or BB2. You'll find them in AP > Display > Templates http://awesomescreenshot.com/01e7d2j56

That's what I'm saying you:
You can't acces templates unless you are on punBB or BB2.

You can change your version in AP > Display > Theme version

Be aware if you do that you'll lose the layout you have on your forum now (you can find a new one on Hitskin) but you'll be able to access templates.

Now you'll find some similar skin to the one you had on your forum so you don't have to do all the changes by your self on hitskin http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin-0.htm
When you'll find it and install it I'll give you the CSS for the wisgets uper image since it's different for punBB and BB3. Than you'll do the change in the forum permissions I told you.

Now you'll find this:

Code:
.main .main-head .page-title {
    background-color: #799858;
    background-image: url("http://sucidar.webs.com/counter%20strike/bar.png");
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
    border: 1px solid #4D4D4D;
    border-radius: 5px 5px 5px 5px;
    font-size: 12px;
    margin-bottom: -5px;
    padding: 5px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
}

And replace it with this:
Code:

.main .main-head .page-title {
    background-color: transparent;
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
    border: medium none;
    border-radius: 5px 5px 5px 5px;
    font-size: 12px;
    margin-bottom: -5px;
    padding: 5px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
}

Than you'll find this:

Code:
.main .main-head {
    background-image: url("http://illiweb.com/fa/empty.gif");
}

And replace it with this:

Code:
.main .main-head {
    background-image: url("http://img160.imageshack.us/img160/3209/32592181cz1.jpg");
    padding: 3px;
}

Resault:

Of course you can. The logo found there is combined out of two logos. The first one is found in your AP > Display > Pictures managment > Advanced > Logo:



The logo with the shooters found benith it is found in your AP > Display > Colors > CSS:

Code:
#pun-intro {
    background-color: transparent;
    background-image: url("http://sucidar.webs.com/counter%20strike/header.png");
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    border-bottom: 0 none;
    height: 191px;
    margin: -20px 0 0 -5px;
    padding: 0;
    text-align: left;
    width: 916px;
}



You'll have to make something similar and change links.

Threads bumping is allowed every 24h, you can PM me to check out the question you made in the thread but I always check new posts if I'm online. So no need to do that neither. Have a nice time out. bye
