SITE MESSING UP

Post by dmwdead909 on September 20th 2011, 1:39 am

Why does my site mess up all the time whenever I try to make a change. I want it to be pubBB and I want the Theme From Cold Fusion.

I took a look at your forum and it is extremely laggy and slow... possibly the worst I have seen on a forum.

First, to improve page load times and lag, stop the Recent Topics widget from scrolling. Scrolling puts a huge strain on the system. Also, don't fix the background pic to also improve load times.

You have animated forum icons which I suspect also has something to do with lag. You should also go back and review any CSS codes or Javascripts you have and see if they are correct and if you can compress them. Also, you should have the Optimize CSS option activated. Wink

I suggest taking off some widgets and re-reading your CSS & remove any pointless rules!!

LOL That is why I was saying I wanted to change it to the other team. But whenever I try to change anything it messes up and everything shows up like the images I show. Is there a way to reset like everything?

Change to the "version default style" not current

Well there are two ways to "reset" everything:

Way #1:
Choose a completely new theme and apply it.

Way #2:
Create a temporary theme and when you get it right, apply it.

well it dont look anything like whats in your screen shots now,
But you still have some work to do,
I would start by resizing your widgets,, and your music player on the forums page, and portal

I think most will work out ok you just have to re-size and organize things a little better,
Also i am not sure whats going on with your footer, i do not see one and looks as if you have images mixed in with the who;s online section?

You should start small and basic then build more as you go along while testing everything and making sure the appearances are suitable and a good size.
