I stand by my comments and some of yours are rude and inappropriate. If you don't ask a good question, you are probably not going to get a good answer. If you want round corners on boxes or background images or whatever, then stating the specific needs may get you a useful response. "Fancy" may mean some specific things to you in this context but it won't mean a lot to anyone else who hasn't seen your site in its current state and doesn't know what things you like or don't like. If you have ever worked with customers on doing any web design, then you will know that it is like art and what appeals to one person may be very unsatisfactory to someone else. I don't think that there is any cookbook for this sort of thing, it tends to be pretty personalized. So I say again, if you were to post a screenshot and provide some ideas of the type of changes that you would like to be able to make, you might get some helpful feedback.
I agree with chris. You profess to know css - if so, you can prettify a page. Calling him a 'prick' is totally off. This to a guy who has about 200 solved posts under his belt and has over 100 attaboys and was (and maybe still is) prepared to help you. Seems to me you came here to deliberately antagonize users.
You posted it in the wrong place as mentioned. Go to the CSS forum, or better still, take yourself to another site altogether. One where they tolerate third-rate, dime-store toilet-mouths. We like this forum, that's why we spend so much time here. We don't need your brand of filth.
How you could be so civil to the guy after that I'll never know. You're a better man than me. :)
I agree with russ_nbhs! chrisea, you're a fool and a prick for not being able to understand the fairly clear and obvious questions posed by russ_nbhs. He knows enough to get the scripts to work, but doesn't know how to actual code with them (lol). Also, just because you know a lot about these things doesn't mean you know everything about it.
My suggestion is just to ignore the little brat until he a) apologizes for being a prick and b) asks a clear and concise question. You want to prettify your site? Go read CSS tutorials.
Chrisea I do apologize for saying what I said it was out of context and should have never been said. I just don't understand Ur concept of just because someone knows css, they won't have any questions on it. no you didn't say that directly but that's how I took it and instead of just asking the question I decided to let ky anger get the best of me. I have already attempted css for rounded borders many of times and it didn't work. I don't really have the problem with personalization I just am having the hardest of time getting the tables to be rounded and what not. the forum I have is at
please keep in mind there isn't any topic really started. again I so apologize for saying what I said. If u don't wanna help I understand.
Chrishea was saying that your question was so broad we wouldn't know where to begin to give you your answer. It would be like asking someone how I can make my car go faster and be more comfortable. I am basically asking someone to invest a lot of time and research in telling me how to do everything I would need to do instead of figuring out anything for my self. You couldn't possibly know much about css with that type of question and I don't see anything wrong with the response you originally got.
Before you start worrying about things like rounded corners and using jQuery you should be worrying about proper markup and best practices. Start by actually declaring a doc type on the top of your page and then removing the inline style from the page. Then start styling everything from an external css file. Also using a css reset would be a good idea. Additionally you have your css file included twice on the head of your document. Also your markup has a bunch of closing </span> tags but no opening <span> tags...??
Not trying to be a prick but you really need to start at the beginning with the basics and get your engine running right before you decide what color to paint your car.
well going back to my original point just because u know something doesn't mean u know everything about it. I never once said I was a pro at css and I guess I haven't uploaded the new files to the server. I put it on the back burner and did all the work on the comp and didn't upload it because the founder of this organization went through a lot of problems and had to put the team on hold. now his family problems are over with and he is starting back. I have the files at the house on my comp that has all that fixed. I am just trying to get pointed in the right direction as to where to begin to do this.
To start you clearly need to become more familiar with CSS. Not only what it is but how to use it. Mozilla, Google, and Opera all offer online tutorials.
For inspiration/ideas for styling your forum - just Google. Look at other forums and see what they've done. There is a Website Review section here where you could ask for aesthetic ideas. Try replicating some of the things you like on your own. If your attempts fail, feel free to post here. This forum is crawling with members that are willing to help. However, we are not here to do the work for you. We are not getting paid, and we're doing this on our own time. So please try to keep that in mind when posting, and it wouldn't hurt to have a look at this either. ^_^
The question asked above is too difficult to understand..
