Post by Key-chan April 19th 2010, 12:37 pm

Hello,

I am new here, kinda new with forum creation, and don't know the most basic things about HTML or CSS (I know a bit of BBCode, but that doesn't help much here I think).

Actually, I'd love to have a forum that looks like this-

http://nocturna.forumsrpg.com/forum.htm

-but instead of diving head-first into something way too big for me, I'd rather go with just the homepage message and personalize the rest. From what I can tell it's a large colored rectangle with writing and images customly placed in different areas of that rectangle. What I need to know is what to insert into the "Message Content" of the Homepage section in the administration panel to re-create that rectangle and put in my own images and colors.

Can someone help me with this please?

Thank you!

You could always ask the admin of that site. Or you could view the source code by clicking CTRL + U (in Chrome...idk about other browsers).

Thanks, but the forum has been abandoned a year ago (I would know since I was one of the members there and very upset about it) so I personally think it would be/feel weird to ask, and when I looked at the source code I panicked. Like I said, I don't know the first thing about HTML, so I would have no idea whatsoever as to which part to copy-paste considering that the code is for the entire page and not just the part I'm looking for. ...

When I first saw the HTML code, I thought "YES!!" and tried it out right away, but all it did was put the images in the same position while the box-part didn't show. Basically, the background of the homepage message was still blank.

I'm guessing that the main problem has something to do with my own forum. If so, then this is gonna be a lot more complicated than I first hoped for.

How do I change this ( http://birds-of-a-feather.ohmyforum.net/forum.htm ) into something looking more like this ( http://nocturna.forumsrpg.com/forum.htm )?

In the worst of cases...I'll just have to give it up. But I really wish it won't come to that XD

I don't quite understand what you mean. I coded it myself on my forum as you can see here. All you should have to do is copy and paste the code.

I left the images this time instead of taking them away.

The forum background is black, the images' "background" is dark grey. Without changing the general black background, how do I make a dark grey "box" where I can freely place my own images, texts, videos and links?

Yes, I copied all the images and links directly from that site. I thought you just wanted to edit a few things.

I placed everything with HTML. If you want to put your own stuff in there without learning HTML I think t automatically converts BBcodes to HTML when placed in the Homepage Message.

As for the box, I think it's just like that because of the theme.
