Thanks revo. Yeah, we are ok. Unbelievable this looting and stuff. One good thing will hopefully come out of it, which is that hopefully the government won't cut police now after all this. Fingers crossed. I haven't seen a bobby in 10 years. Sad

And you are right. Although Gabby's logo is brilliant it does look more like Tron than an Asylum. Hmm. Maybe you'll have to change that at bit after all Gabby. I got a bit carried away there Very Happy Mind you, if the theme was Tron it would be brilliant Very Happy

Good to hear you're good. Hope ggirl is alright too.

Well, I did say I will modify it. But... uh, what the heck is a asylum anyway? Something like a hospital for crazy or a jail for them?

Edit: 100th post? Yay! Very Happy

yes, exactly. I'm thinking, padded cells, stainless steel surfaces, lots of white and maybe a few blue accents. Or you could try to go rusty. Like in games when you have to explore an abandoned asylum and they all jump out at you and you hide behind the sofa...oh, that's just me then Very Happy

Yeah, odd this looting. They tried to break into our ASDA last night (Walmart) to steel TVs, but sort of gave up. Lol. Very Happy

Ah, good to hear you're doing fine ggirl and QW. I've read about it this evening in the newspaper. Crazy people. I wonder what the police will do with all the identified people from the surveillance cam pictures.

Logo looks good Gabby. But I agree there's something missing regarding the asylum bit. Like QW says. It needs something from a mental hospital. I would love to see a straight jacket, or an old gate with a spooky house in it.

I forgot to welcome Melody after I send her over here. Shame on me.
WELCOME MELODY!

Thankfully the looting isn't anywhere near me, I live in a village to the north of Nottingham so, I don't think it should get too close...fingers crossed Very Happy

With the logo I agree with DiD, the first thing I envisioned was like the gates from some of the Batman Arkham Asylum images that you see floating around the internet? Sort of like this pic but, having theme-asylum written in the gates instead of arkham asylum Very Happy

Insomniac Fun (trying to learn phpbb3 and css coding) OK that's all for today, more mods on some of the other buttons once I figure it out. So I followed gabby's lead and made a forum for learning purposes and such. Does this help out any DiD? Rolling Eyes

@revo and ggirl: Wow, they both look fantastic. Definitely more in the direction of old abandoned Asylum. I love the brass effect and the spooky trees, maybe we can combine them?

@revo: I clicked on your link and registered, but I never got the confirmation email. It's not in my junk folder either. I'll wait a couple more hours, maybe it will appear later. Like the look of it immensely Very Happy

Woohaaah..... that looks good. You go ahead and build the site Revo. LOL

I've tried out phpBB3 and I'm still not satisfied with the options it gives me. Now I'm trying SMF or Simple Machines Forum. Find the homepage here: http://www.simplemachines.org/

Think I'm going to stick with this one. Why? I'll spare you the technical details, but this one has several premade SSI code that allows you to put, for example, a login box on any page. It's also very customizable.

I'm going to try and put your layout on the forum Revo. There was also a premade theme (Ancient and Rusted) I found for the smf forum. It's here: http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?action=download;lemma=2446;id=14405;image
Maybe this gives some inspiration or I can use parts of it.

Not my choice revo, I can't keep you on NGM if you don't want to, now, can I? It's ggirl's and Weenie's choices, not mine (I'm not a mind parasite). Laugh

Told ya you'd be better as a designer than a programmer. seems like DiD agrees. By the way, sweet looking forum you got there. Just that it has some readability problems (Oh crap, I can't believe I'm saying this to you).

Bwahaha, are you serious Gabby? Maybe we all should switch to Revo's forum. Just kidding of course.

Man this SMF forum is heaven. Everything is editable from within the admin panel, even the code and css.

Hey Revo do you have those user ranks in separate files? Or do I need to grab the big image and cut them out one by one?

@gabby, yeah it definitely has some readability problems hahahhahahaa can't a NOOB get some love. tongue Everything was done with CSS and not just point and click so I haven't been able to decipher how to adjust height and placement. Any suggestions?

@DiD, lemme see if I can learn that new system a bit. And I'm sending you an email with the ranks right after this. They are all separate files so I'll zip them up for you. No cutting and pasting. Will it be easy to convert the layout I wonder using smf? Smile

@everybody. LOL no switching to Revo's Test Forum. That is of course unless you want a headache from the incomplete site.

Wow .... I think the layout is really great.
I love the colors and the sight of an abandoned attic. I love you

I also have just a little knowledge of CSS, which I use in my own website.
Of SMF, I have no clue so I can not really help. Rolling Eyes

Hey Gang I think I found a template that we could mod to our hearts content. The coolest thing about this layout is that it is theme oriented. If you look at the upper right hand screen of the forum there are colors. If you click on one of the colors the forum layout not only changes color but in imagery as well. The base background color doesn't change but I think that this means users would be able to select from more than one color/design/ or look if you will when they visit the site. The neat thing is that it appears to be like skinning a DS where all we change are the images once the base layout is established. So in theory we could have multiple designs "skinned" on top of a base layout.

Here's the main link about the theme:
http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=1

Here's a demo version of SMF 1.1
http://www.blocweb.net/demos/smf1/index.php?theme=3

Here's a demo version of SMF 2.0 (most current version of SMF)
http://www.blocweb.net/demos/smf2/index.php?theme=5

Pretty cool huh? Very Happy

Now cool is one thing, but if it's overtly complicated DiD we should just move on to something more basic.
http://www.blocweb.net/demos/smf2/index.php?theme=4

we could probably skin that too ;P

Seems the layout has a few glitches, but nothing to worry about. Nice catch Revo.
I'll try this out this evening and see how it behaves.

We're going to stick to the SMF forum. The code is very easy to work with and/or change it. Very Happy

wow, guys what a chinwag. I understood most of it. I love the forums revo, the colour change is great. The rusty one doesn't look as good as yours, but it's on the way, if we could change stuff. So do you always have to use other ppls layouts when you go for a forum? Or can you just put a picture in the background, like say on twitter?

Oh I see it was a test forum. I thought it was the forum belonging to TA. Oh well, maybe you can tell us in no clear tones in the future "do not sign up, it's a test", ggirl and I should get that Very Happy

Hi everybody, I've had a browse round and found some images we could use to make up the logo. I don't feel up to making it myself, but maybe it will inspire you. Here they are:









And here is a link to a font I think would fit quite well: http://www.azfonts.net/load_font/lunatic.html

Hope one of you guys can use this to make something amazing Smile

Thx for those QW. Maybe our artists can do something with it.

I've set the forum up. Find it here: http://www.theme-asylum.com/forums/index.php

After a hard day work, I experimented a bit with your logo Revo. But remember I'm just an amateur.

Cool Beans DiD! Ummm...yeah if you're an amateur then there's no hope for the rest of us. Very Happy You make us look like NOOBS in comparison with the stuff you're doing. Thanks for the hard work. Smile I can't wait to see what the main page will end up looking like. cheers

Gonna start skinning those components tonight and apply some of the graphics from the test revo test forum to the TA design. The guy that created the layout is a bit possessive about his "THEME" so we're just gonna make it our own. LOL.

The logo is just a try out. I'm sure you can do it better. If you want the parts I added, just tell me.

Can't wait to see what you come up with Revo.
Did you find the folder with the parts to theme? They're separated in folders called blue, silver, gold, etc...

I'm looking around the code now to build up our own pages. And maybe adapting the menu also.

Thanks for the vote of confidence DiD. Sure I'd be happy to have the parts you added please send those bits as an attachment through e-mai as well as any elements you think might be nice to have. Smile

Also last minute trip to California gang. The girls got invited to do some training at a dojo in near the beach at Camarillo. So of course we've gotta hit the beach and take the kids out before school for them begins. Very Happy It's just for the weekend so of course I'll be back to the project when we get back. Have a great weekend gang.
